Probably all people ask themselves from time to time, “Where am I heading and what do I want to see at the end of the road?” But a few people can give a clear answer. Even if you are in your 30s or 40s, you may still not know what your mission in this world is and how to find your life purpose.
A soul’s calling can help you not give up in difficult times, not get lost in life, and always know what you really want. There is one technique that can help you find your life purpose in just 30 minutes and have no doubt that it’s real.
Some would say that it is not necessary at all, and not knowing where to go means you just cannot go in the wrong direction. Well, to some extent, this is true. But you can’t know how this road is gonna be.
As a rule, when a person enjoys themselves, they don’t think about the meaning and purpose, and these thoughts came to their head only when they are in a difficult situation and feel lifeless or disappointed. That’s when you need some meaning or purpose in order to find the courage to keep going.
In order to find a purpose that really matters, you don’t need to go to a psychic or spend five years in a monastery. The method proposed in this article takes from 20 minutes to an hour, but before you begin, it is necessary to note:
Get ready for anything
Many would associate the word “purpose” with material prosperity or some great achievements. Get over the idea that it might not be so. Accept the possibility that your life purpose might sound quite prosaic and you will have to give up some of your ambitions in order to be truly happy.
In addition, your purpose does not necessarily lie in a familiar area associated with your studies or previous jobs. Just be prepared for the fact that it might be something completely unfamiliar to you.
Something that makes you feel good
The only condition is that your life purpose should bring you pleasure. The human strives for meaning but also for pleasure, which can be got from anything: a well-done job, the process of work, communication, or knowledge.
You can call your life purpose a global source of pleasure that will last a lifetime. Thus, you can always check it: if you do not get satisfaction from it, it’s not really your life purpose.
How to find your life purpose in 30 minutes? The method
As promised, the process is simple:
- Stay alone
- Write down on a sheet of paper “My life purpose”
- Turn off your thoughts
- Start to write down everything that comes to your mind
As soon as your life purpose is on the sheet of paper in front of you, you will experience a strong emotional reaction.
Why turn off your thoughts?
It is necessary because over the years, your head gets overloaded with social expectations and beliefs imposed by your family, teachers, and society as to what you should live and strive for. These ideas will be the first to appear, but you need to be focused and watch your emotional state. If a life purpose causes no emotion, it’s not what you are looking for.
For some people, it may take 20 minutes, while others will need an hour. The main thing is not to give up.
After a number of failed attempts, which will not cause any emotions in you, you may start to feel that it is stupid and not worth your time. If you overcome this feeling, be sure that you’ll learn how to find your life purpose and something valuable about yourself, so isn’t it worth spending an extra half an hour of your life?
