Day 12: Discover Your Life Purpose
Updated: Jun 30, 2018
Most of us don’t enjoy writing. We’d much rather think things through, but writing can be a very powerful tool. Your perspective can change when you see your ideas on paper. Allowing a little light to shine on your thoughts and ideas can provide clarity. Dust off your notebook and take pen to paper.
Writing is a powerful tool that can permit a dialog with your subconscious:
1. You’ll need a clean sheet of paper, a pen, and a quiet place for sixty minutes. You might not need a full hour.
‣ A word processor is an acceptable substitution to a pen. However, writing by hand is preferable.
2. Empty your mind of your preconceived ideas. Part of the reason you’ve been unable to discover the purpose of your life is your erroneous thinking. We limit ourselves far too much. The answers often lie in places we never bother to look. Keep an open mind.
3. Write, “What is my life purpose?” at the top of the page. This sets the stage and informs your subconscious of your purpose.
4. Write whatever comes to mind. You might think, “This is a dumb idea.” That’s fine. Write it down. Avoid judging any of your thoughts.
5. Expect that it will take 15 minutes to rid yourself of your mental clutter.
6. Stick with the process. At some point, you’ll want to quit or do something else instead. There’s no reason to be fearful of learning the truth. Fight through the discomfort.
7. Continue writing until you find it. How will you know? You’ll know. You’ll probably even cry. Just keep writing until you’re certain you’ve found it.
‣ Go with the answer that provides the greatest emotional surge.
Ensure that others won’t interrupt you during the process. Any significant interruption would require starting the process over from the beginning. Most people that attempt this exercise will quit before reaching the end. Be one of the few that completes the process.
Give it a chance. You have nothing to lose.
If the above approaches haven’t satisfied your quest, there are additional questions you can answer. While meditation and writing can be highly effective, some of us have greater success with more conventional means. Avoid giving up. There’s too much at stake to stop.
Spend a few minutes on each question before moving on to the next:
1. What are your greatest regrets? Which missed opportunities do you regret the most? Is there a skill you wish you had started learning years ago? What decisions would you change if given a second chance?
‣ What career would choose if you could go back in time and be 18 years old again? Is it really too late now?
2. Who inspires you the most? Think about the people that fill you with feelings of respect and admiration.
‣ What is it about them that inspires you? Could you incorporate some of these same qualities in yourself? Could you live a similar life?
3. What are your natural talents? In what areas have you always excelled? Do you understand complex ideas? Is it your social skills? Are you musically talented? Are you compassionate and considerate?
‣ While you can learn to be good at anything, you can save a lot of time if you’re able to put your natural abilities to work. Imagine the progress you’d make after 10 years of effort using your natural abilities rather than starting from scratch.
‣ If you believe that you were born with a particular purpose, it only makes sense that the necessary talents would be provided to you, too.
4. What makes you feel good about yourself? If you could spend most of your time doing things that make you feel great, your life would be pretty wonderful!
5. If you had to teach a subject, what would you choose? It’s only enjoyable to teach subjects that you like. The subject you’d like to teach is a good candidate for your life purpose.
6. In what areas do people ask you for help? Most of us wouldn’t ask a homeless person for stock tips. We ask people for advice that we believe have a level of expertise higher than our own.
‣ Do others constantly ask you for relationship advice?
‣ Do people ask you about spiritual matters?
7. Imagine you’re 80-years old. What memories do you want to have? Imagine you’re sitting on your front porch swing. What would you like to claim as your past? What type of relationships would you like to have experienced? What do you want to have accomplished?
‣ How can you make this ideal past become your present?
You now have a good idea of your life purpose. The next step is determining how to incorporate the knowledge into your life. Ideas are the easy part. It’s the implementation that’s challenging.
