Discovering your purpose!

What am I meant to do on earth? Why am I here? What can I do, that would make me be remembered in years to come? What is my purpose?
    Answers to questions like these are sometimes very difficult to find. Nobody else knows what your purpose is, purposes are "self-discovered", since everybody knows their individual capabilities and preferences more than any friend or family member does. Get a piece of paper, ask yourself the following questions, write the answers down on the piece of paper, be honest! When you are done, some of your answers will keep occurring in your mind like they are talking to you, your purpose or purposes on earth are in that paper and as you look through your answers again, when you see them, you just know:

1. What makes you smile? (Activities, people, events, hobbies, projects, etc.)

2. What are your favourite things to do in the past? What about now?

3. What activities make you lose track of time?

4. What makes you feel great about yourself?

5. Who inspires you most? (Anyone you know or do not know. Family, friends, authors, artists, leaders, etc.) Which qualities inspire you, in each person?

6. What are you naturally good at? (Skills, abilities, gifts etc.)

7. What do people typically ask you for help in?

8. If you had to teach something, what would you teach?

9. What would you regret not fully doing, being or having in your life?

10. You are now 90 years old, sitting on a rocking chair outside your porch; you can feel the spring breeze gently brushing against your face. You are blissful and happy, and are pleased with the wonderful life you’ve been blessed with. Looking back at your life and all that you’ve achieved and acquired, all the relationships you’ve developed; what matters to you most? List them out.

11. What are your deepest values?

12. What were some challenges, difficulties and hardships you’ve overcome or are in the process of overcoming? How did you do it?

13. What causes do you strongly believe in? Connect with?

14. If you could get a message across to a large group of people. Who would those people be? What would your message be?

15. Given your talents, passions and values. How could you use these resources to serve, to help, to contribute? ( to people, beings, causes, organisation, environment, planet, etc.)
