Live with Purpose
Living with purpose is something that everyone should strive to do. Most of us will spend our lives question the meaning of life. The reality is that the life we create for ourselves is the meaning of our lives. Living with purpose gives everyone an opportunity to make an impact. If you find a calling that is bigger than yourself, you have found the perfect life purpose. You have found a way to leave behind a legacy that no one can take away from you.
Life is too short to let it pass you by. As far as we know we only get one go around. That means that if you want to make a difference you only have one chance. Don’t live a passive life. Everyone should be able to find a way to make an impact. It doesn’t matter how small that impact is. Just taking the time out of your day to smile at 1 person could make all the difference in their life. Imagine what you can do once you have figured out your purpose in life!
4 Ways to Make a Difference
These 4 ways to make a difference are far from an all inclusive list. You may come up with a better way. What matters is that these 4 ways are a jumping point to creating a purposeful life. What makes these 4 ways fun is that you can use them in any way you want. They can be reverse for all I care. Just make sure you are putting in the effort to find your purpose, it is the most fulfilling thing you can do!
1) Find Something You Are Passionate About
The things you are passionate about are the easiest things to do. If you have a passion you can turn that energy into a positive influence for someone that needs help. That means if you like investing teach someone how to invest but if you are into working out try to find a partner to workout with. It doesn’t matter what your passion is as long as you use to help find your purpose.
2) Surround Yourself With Like Minded People
The people you spend the most time with are the people that influence you the most. If you want to find your purpose in life you need to spend time with like minded people. Your goal may be to help people, if it is then don’t spend time with people that are antisocial. If you help animals stay away from animal abusers. The people around you can make all the difference make sure they are on the same path as you.
3) Find and Create New Opportunities
When you are living with purpose opportunities will come to you. Jump on them if you can. The more involved you are the bigger difference you can make. If the opportunities aren’t coming figure out how to create them. The more opportunities you have the better your chances are of making a difference. Involvement and opportunities are the key, no one made a difference by mindlessly watching TV.
4) Don’t Live Passively
As I have mentioned before don’t live passively. It is impossible to live a purposeful life if you aren’t living life to the fullest. This is where surrounding yourself with good people, creating opportunities and finding a passion really matter. It’s impossible to live passively if you are already working towards making a difference. You have one chance to make a difference. Go out and share the things you love with people you want to be around. Give yourself a chance to live with purpose.
Living with purpose is about taking action. You have to find your purpose it doesn’t just happen, make finding your purpose a habit! You are going to use your passions and the people around you to create opportunities. Once you have the opportunities you will have to be active. Purpose doesn’t come to those who are passive. Even though you will need to make effort to find your purpose there is no rush. It is not a competition to see who is the most purposeful.
Now it’s time to start your journey towards finding a purpose. It may start out as a smile or a wave. Eventually you will find your purpose. Once you have your purpose share it with others. Let others enjoy the passion that flows through you at every opportunity. Your purpose starts with you but ends with a legacy. Use that legacy to make a difference in the world!
