Finding Purpose In Life: The True Question To Ask Yourself

The road to finding purpose in life for a man it’s not as linear as you might think, in fact all the opposite, it’s rocky, impervious and packed with obstacles, but there are ways you can simplify it if you have a certain degree of maturity and today we’re looking at exactly that.

Finding Your Purpose In Life: The Harsh Reality

Now, let me break it for you right off the bat: if you think that your finding your purpose in life is something that will magically align and manifest and appear in front of your eyes as a vision or as a revelation with a word from God…that’s probably not going to happen, these kind of people are not me or you, they’re the exception, but if you are one of these people, great! but this article isn’t for you.

The rest of us have to go through more palpable struggles decorated with trials, errors, and lots of failures and false idols, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it’s just more work. Now, finding purpose in life doesn’t have to feel like a divine crusade because in reality, it’s very materialistic and you should see it simply as something you want to accomplish, for starters…and that’s when you will have planted the seed, the foundations for a mission to possibly become a purpose later on in life.

You won’t know what kind of seed you have planted until it grows into something, and that’s exactly how it works…so, what’s the question you should ask yourself?

“What do I NEED to do?”Man questioning about finding purpose in life

This question will naturally point your psyche towards the thing you know is of most urgency at the moment in your life and that’ll automatically improve your situation once is taken care of,  you can consider this the first step towards…creating your purpose.

That’s right.

Nobody goes out “finding its purpose in life” thinking its purpose is like finding some gold pot at the end of a rainbow, magically. Your purpose is something that you BUILD, constantly, shaped by your decisions and ability to adapt and always looking for the best. That’s why the question is “What do I need to do” and not “Where do I need to look”, because as humans, we constantly need to build ourselves and smooth off rough edges…and it’s natural that our purpose works the same way.

So, now that you know that your purpose must be built you can take various courses of action, for example (I strongly advise you try this) you could try your hand in various endeavors to gauge what you might be prone to like and enjoy. The strategy is to go out there and do as many (useful, mind you, we don’t like superficial stuff here) things as possible that’ll enrich yourself and your skills—and your character so you gain some sort of mastery or acquaintance over something.

Doing this not only will expand your horizons and give you new and fresh perspectives, but it will also give you a SENSE OF POSSIBILITY. Knowing what you can (and want) to do is of incredible importance when trying to build your purpose. Another way you could tackle this is to instead pick a thing you REALLY like to do and focus on that solely (this might yield fewer rewards in growth but it’s still an option) becoming a true master of your craft could then trigger something, a deep sense of “I’ve done everything I had to do here, what’s next for me”?

In the end, finding your purpose in life it’s really about creating, building it brick by brick until it starts having a semblance of something in your mind, something that makes sense for you.

3 Ways Self Growth Can Give You a Fresh Start In Life

Talking about self growth is now considered “obvious” and normal, but in reality few people really grasp what this is all about. Most of them will just dismiss the topic as something not worth of inspection and will just stop at the surface, valiantly thinking *THEY* know what they’re talking about, and then you see them unhappy, not an inch wiser and in the same place they were years ago.

Today I will tell you 3 reasons why self growth is worth your time and efforts, and why you should NOT take it lightly unlike some people do.

1) You Gain a New Outlook On Life

Especially if you were stuck in a certain situation for a long time, this is one of the first things you’ll notice as soon as you’re deep in your self growth journey, and it’s also one of the most satisfying at that. You are now starting with a clean slate, an exciting and unbelieavable perspective will impose itself over your life, because that’s what happens when you finally decide that enough is enough and you don’t fit anymore with your habits of old, the previous way of viewing things will either be replaced or refined, turning you in a whole new beast.

And this new outlook that you develop is one of a kind, really, you’ll start to see things for what they are and in a more logical, uncomplicated manner, it’s like putting on glasses for the first time, you could even call it an “awakening” if we want to be this dramatic, take it as a sort of clear thinking state where clarity acts as its ruler. I have to warn you of some (minor!) drawbacks of this self growth perk though, some people will say that you’ve changed and will treat you differently just because your views no longer align with theirs, funny how this works huh?

But you can clearly see that the pros here outweighs the cons! 😀

2) It Sparks Motivation and Positivity Within

It’s no secret that when people start for example, exercising, after a while they’ll start feeling amazing and overjoyed, the same applies to your self growth since like exercising is also something that improves yourself and your mood, but this kind of positivity is slightly different, while the exercise-related joy is transient and aimed just at that (even though it has a chance to become exactly what i’m about to tell you) the self growth one has a much wider scope, it’s not going to affect just one area of your life, it will keep on compounding with multiple things.

While you’re constantly improving you’re not only going to feel motivated like never before because of the results you’re seeing, you’re also going to get an urge to become even better, and what does that mean? exactly, action! you won’t have time to stay still for all these new and exciting things are taking up your time, pushing you to be better and that equals positivity and NO time for brooding.

The positivity mindset and motivation that you’ll gain with self growth are not feeble and instant gratification oriented unlike the kind that you will earn from temporary sources meant to boost the both of them for a short while, this is the good stuff that LASTS and will become a bulwark of your personality, the reason why is because self growth is a constructive, positive sum game endeavour.

3)You Outgrow Yourself

Self growth involves, as it’s noticeable in the word itself, growth. An inevitable reward you’ll be facing is improvement of whatever you’ve set out to improve in the first place, this reason only should be enough for you to start already.

Life’s a marathon, and by overhauling old aspects of yourself by steadily growing you’re sure to get to the end line, every growth within you however small it may seem represents a fresh start, an opportunity to start all over again and tackle the matter at hand with a renewed skillset. If you’re not looking to improve every day, then you are slowly recessing into the slimy pond that is complacency, while doing self growth you will have no room for that, instead you will start to see the daunting tasks ahead of you as challenges meant to take you higher.

Growing ALWAYS means something new, hence you will start over everytime without the weight of what you’ve left behind, making it the perfect way to give everyone a shot at life, once again.
