How To Find Your Life Purpose

Many of us are not aware that we have one. Even when we are, we’re far too often confused about what our purpose or purpose in life is — or even if we have one. But you already have it! So let it out, it’s time to let down your guard. This is the beginning of something you’ll cherish forever.  Let it out.

This is a story that was written with my dad to give you inspiration to keep pushing forward for the right reasons – even when you feel like you’re heading down the wrong path. When my dad was younger, he was an Air Force man, but he had to give it up because he didn’t like the Air Force lifestyle. I think he felt he didn’t like spending more time at an Air Force base with other guys.

The first couple of years in the Navy were rough, and we both wanted to leave. He’d wanted to leave ever since he joined, and we talked about it for a long time. It wasn’t just that he didn’t really like the living conditions and the stress of working for the Navy, though those were huge factors as well. The more immediate factor was he just didn’t see a future in the Navy. He had only a year to go before graduation, and he couldn’t see himself sticking around.

He talked about going to work in an office, and making hundreds of thousands of dollars. He wanted to get into law school and be rich, but couldn’t. So eventually, he decided just to stay in the Navy just long enough to graduate, and the Navy took care of him for the rest of his life.

That was a tough pill to swallow. He knew he was making the right decision, and he just wanted to start fresh. But, with Dad, it was never about a decision. It was more about a process of going through the process of accepting and learning.

“The Process of Learning.” I love that word. I love that process. This is a story about trying to figure out how to learn to live your life on your own terms and become the best you you can possibly be.

I believe I’ve experienced that process first hand. And it’s something I want everyone I know to know.

There can be no more time than necessary to make this process of discovery and self improvement a reality.

What Do You Want To Do At Age 55?

I want to take the next 5-6 years to figure out exactly where I want to be in five years – if I’m going to see myself still living that life at 55.

I’ll figure out what the path to take to get there is, and I’ll write that path down, and get to doing it. I’m going to be very selective about what I do. I’ll focus on a task and take very short cut to get there. I’ll start in the middle, then work my way to the end.

I’m going to start this journey with my life purpose.

What do we want to do?

What is your life purpose?

What kind of person do you really want to be?

Is there a special purpose that you want to become the best you can possibly be? It could be in the area of personal development (if so, what would your special purpose be? what do you know about it?). It could be in the area of business and how to become a better or more successful business owner (if so, what special purpose would you have for that). Whatever you want, there’ll be a goal that you are trying to go towards, and you’ll figure out that path.

I like looking for a purpose outside my job.
