Day 13: Make Your Purpose a Part Of Your Life
Updated: Jun 30, 2018
Knowledge has minimal value if you’re not applying it. Focus on making small changes to your daily habits. Slow progress is the most reliable way to create major change in your life.
Let’s suppose your purpose is to help illiterate adults to read:
1. Look to the future. What does the end of your journey look like? Are you sitting at the library, helping someone learn to read? Are you in charge of a charity that serves those unable to read? Are you asking Bill Gates for $10,000,000 to fight for your cause?
2. What can you do today to get started? Starting is always the hardest part. What can you do today?
‣ Learn more about illiteracy. What are the statistics? What are the causes? What is the best way to teach an adult to read?
‣ What local resources are available? Can you contact them for advice?
‣ Could you put an ad in Craig’s List and get started helping someone today?
3. Remind yourself of your purpose each day. Each morning and evening, take a minute to remind yourself of your purpose. Look to the future and feel excited. This is especially important on those challenging days that inevitably happen from time to time.
4. Track your progress. Keep a journal and list your successes and failures. How can you experience more successes and prevent future failures? Appreciate how far you’ve come.
5. Spread the word. If you’ve found your purpose in life, it’s your obligation to let the world know about it. How can you communicate the importance of adult illiteracy to the world? You’re not just a worker on this project. You’re also a messenger.
Realise that making a big difference requires big effort and time. Avoid letting the magnitude of your dreams overwhelm you. A little work and attention each day are cumulative. Your progress will shock you!
“It is not that we have so little time but that we lose so much. ...
The life we receive is not short but we make it so; we are
not ill provided but use what we have wastefully.”
Finding your life purpose changes the direction and emphasis of your life. If you haven’t taken the time to determine the purpose of your life, the quality of your experience on Earth has been limited. There are many advantages to discovering your unique purpose.
Introspection is a part of making this discovery. Self-reflective questions, meditation, and writing are all potential options. Use every method at your disposal until you’re satisfied with the answer you receive.
Today, more than ever, it’s possible to make a living doing a wide variety of things. You can live in Alaska and give tuba lessons to a student in Miami via Skype. You can publish your own book without the need for a traditional publisher. There is a way to make a living while being true to your life purpose.
Find your purpose and reclaim your life.
