What’s your purpose in life?

Category : General

Have you ever questioned what your purpose in life is and whether you’re living life the way the universe had intended you to do so?

I’m not referring to you living out a planned path like a puppet but more of are you fulfilling your potential? Are you already living life to the max? Are you enjoying what you’re doing? Are you living your passion?

I’ve been asking myself these questions more and more often recently. Do I enjoy doing what I am doing because I am good at it or I really enjoy doing what I’m doing? Am I just functioning within my comfort zone or am I living my passion?

Well, I have big dreams. I have ambition. I am not contented being mediocre. I believe I can achieve and contribute so much more than what I am delivering now.

How many of you feel the same too? Trapped within your current circumstances, restricted by unseen boundaries? But, what’s really restricting us? Is it really the times, or is it us, ourselves? How do we know for sure? Anyone?

I have been attending many courses lately, more specifically, since Oct last year. One of the things I keep hearing is “The bigger the WHY, the easier the HOW”. But the thing is, how do I find the ultimate why?

Just like almost everyone out there, I want to earn more money. I want financial freedom. I want to work because I choose to and not because I have to. But why do I want these? Being filthy rich is just the result. I’ve been told that it’s not a why. The question to ask is WHY do I want more money? What is my WHY?

I’ve been searching high and low for my WHY. Something that’ll spur me to do whatever it takes to make things happen. The trigger that’ll set me in the right direction. Which is also one of the reasons why I invested in the courses. I can’t say that I’ve found nirvana yet but at the very least, I’ve taken action to seek it out.

One of the advices I’ve received is to break things down. Keep drilling down to details and fundamentals e.g. why do you want to make so much money? Is it for yourself, your family, for society? With the money, what do you want to do? What next after achieving financial freedom? Etc.

Easier said than done right? Especially when we’ve been so well-trained to suppress our desires and feelings. As the Chinese saying goes, 知足常乐 which means one will achieve happiness by being contented. This is just one of the values many Asians grow up with.

The list goes on but what matters most is are you happy? I know I can be happier so hopefully I’ll strike gold very soon. The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, after the rain.

What about you? Have you found your WHY already?

Congratulations if you have.

If you have not, good luck and I hope that you’re on your way to discovering the pot of gold too.
