4 Tips to Living Life On Purpose

January 28, 2017

As human beings, we always look for reason. It is in our nature to ask why and what. It is in our genes to be logical and reasonable. It is in our character to always have basis for something. These things set us apart from other living things. These things make us smart. These things make us the leaders of different cultures.

  1. Live Your Life Great

Our purpose inspires us. Without it, we lose directions in life. If we do not know why we have to do what we have to do, we lose interest and then eventually we lose motivation. Motivation pushes us to become better and once we lose it, we just all become stagnant. Same goes with direction, without it nothing about the future will ever be clear.

Our Purpose gives us never-ending strength, motivation, and loyalty.

We are all blessed to be given the chance to live. Our lives must be meaningful. We have to live it well and in order to do this, we have to make sure that we express our true purpose in everything that we say, do, and create.

The Word of God tells us: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11). Even God has a purpose for all of us. He knows exactly why we are all here on Earth. He knows why it is important for us to be doing what we are meant to be doing. It is our responsibility to seek and reflect on our purpose and make sure that we are living a life that God has planned for all of us.

  1. Allow Your Life to Unfold

Everything that we encounter in our lives has a purpose. We cannot just simply land into a situation that is not relevant to our lives. Everything happens for a reason and we just have to open our minds so that we can see what these reasons are.

Our lives deserve to be trusted. We just have to let it happen. We should stop trying to control so much. When we meet someone that we like at first and then hurts us in the end, we would initially think that there is no sense in meeting a person that we’ll leave eventually. This is wrong.

We have to change our way of thinking so that we can see the purpose that’s behind every event. It could be that we had to meet this person to make us realize the things that we want and we do not want in a partner. Maybe we had to meet this person so that we can get hurt and eventually become stronger. Maybe we had to meet this person so that we can learn about virtues like trust, loyalty, and love.

There are reasons why we meet the people we meet in our lives. There are reasons why we experience the things that we experience in life. Let us not disregard these experiences because they are all important in building our lives. They are all important because they all have the purpose.

  1. Think of Others

We are made so that we can be a blessing to other people. We are here so that we can fulfill our purpose. As people of God, it is automatically our purpose to help one another because we are just one big family. Our neighbors, co-workers, friends and even strangers are also our brothers and sisters.

We cannot hide the fact that we are all made for each other, and we are used as vessels to be blessings to each other. Without the people in our lives, we cannot be truly happy. We have to be selfless so that we can serve others. We have to be selfless so that we can put others first. Selflessness leads us to fulfilling our purpose and the purpose that God has designed for us.

  1. Find Significance in What You Do

We are the type of creature that knows how to make sense of things. We do not create anything that does not have any sense. We always ask “why” so that we can understand the reason behind everything. We never push forward in doing something that we really do not understand.

In order for a human being to perform well and be good, he must know the meaning and the purpose. This is the reason why we always ask our superiors in the office about the objectives of a certain project or campaign. When we are tasked to create a certain report, the first thing we ask is what the objective is about. This is because we cannot know how to create something or what to put into something if we do not know its objective.

Same thing goes with life. We cannot move forward if we do not know what the plans are for the future. We cannot live blindly. We have to know our purpose and we have to live according to that purpose. That is the only way we can make sense of things. We have to express our true purpose by living according to it and showing people that that is what we are doing.
