Living with Purpose on Purpose

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 PeopleLike Minded

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.

Take ActionTake Action

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!

E-Readers Are The Future

Reading is something that everyone should do everyday. There is so much you can get out of reading. The problem is we are consumed by technology that takes us away from reading. If you ask anyone successful reading is part of the key to their success.They might even say they read every day. Getting an E-Reader can change the way you look at reading. They are definitely one piece of technology that will bring reading back into your life. At this point you’ve probably heard E-Readers like the Nook or Kindle. If you’ve ever wondered why you should buy one keep reading!

What Makes E-Readers Great? 

Reading is something that can be challenging to do in modern times. We are always on the go and trying to make the most of our days. Regular books just don’t have the kind of features that make them fit into our modern lives. Not that regular books have any real flaws, I have a library growing and I love it! E-Readers definitely have an advantage here just look at these benefits.

Apps

The Nook and the Kindle both have apps that allow you to have access to your books anytime. You can install these apps on phones, tablets, and computers. You may have bought the book specifically for your E-Reader but it’s not stuck there. If you are on the go you can read from your phone!

BacklightingBacklighting

One of the biggest challenges with reading a regular book is getting the right lighting. With most E-Readers (the cheaper ones skip over this perk) you having settings for the backlight. That means no more carrying around a light or struggling to find a place to sit with the right lighting. You could read in a dark closet if you wanted to! There is no limit to where you can read when you have a built in light.

Multiple Books 

This isn’t for everyone but I enjoy reading 2 or more books at a time. If you like to switch it up after a chapter or 2 then an E-Reader is a great choice for you. It’s easy to switch between books and you don’t have to carry them around. Even switching devices (hey look at the apps coming in handy) you still have access to the last page you read. If you have a hard time focusing on 1 book for a long period of time, this benefit is for you!

Lightweight

Technology is an amazing thing. At one point in time if you wanted to have access to 100 books you’d have to go to a library. If you wanted to move those books, good luck. Now we have the ability to carry 100 books easily in 1 hand. If you’ve ever lugged around a 1,000 page book you’ll understand how nice it is to not carry around 1,000 pages. You can easily slip an E-Reader into a pocket, purse, or backpack. It will barely make any difference.

Library ServicesLibrary Services

Depending on the E-Reader you choose you may have access to library like services. You can avoid buying every book and start checking them out. With these services you can even look back at your history and easily recheck out books. If you already love the library you’ll love not having to commute or wait for a book to be returned by someone else. E-Libraries will change the future of reading!

Types of E-Readers

After reading through all those perks you may be wondering “What’s the best E-Reader?” and the answer is it depends. Every E-Reader is going to have its own services, operating systems, and features that may vary. What I can do is give you a list of the 3 most common E-Readers brands on the market.

You can’t go wrong with any of these brands. Pick one that has the features you think suit you best. After you’ve picked one enjoy it and don’t look back!

Enjoy a New Experience

Nothing beats sitting down with a good book. Now you have even more options to dive into reading. If you aren’t already reading everyday, use this as an opportunity to create a great and long lasting habit! Remember reading is a keystone habit and can foster other great habits. Speaking of great habits, this is one to share with the people you care about. Don’t let them living a life without reading!

Now that you see how great E-Readers are, it’s time to do some research. If you’ve taken anything from this post it should be that there are a ton of options out there and it’s up to you to decide what’s best. I want you to take the time to research 3 models of E-Reader. You don’t have to buy one (even if you should!) but take the time to compare 3. Once you’ve picked your favorite make a plan to buy one. Tell the same family member or friend from before that they are holding you accountable for your plan. Don’t let something small hold you back from reading more often!
