If someone asked you what you think you’re purpose on Earth is, would you be able to give them an answer?
Not having a purpose is like travelling without a destination, you’re just wandering around aimlessly. Maybe you’ll make it somewhere good, but the chances are you’ll spend your life helping someone achieve their purpose instead of your own.

If you don’t know what your purpose is yet I encourage you to figure it out. It’s never to late to make a change in your life to find your purpose. Here are some steps you can take to help you find it:
Follow your heart
These 3 words are the most important words I’ve ever heard. If you
follow your heart you will eventually end up where you want to be. Following your heart will always take you to your destination. We often to snub out the little voice inside of us because it seems impossible or other people tell us it can’t be done. Ignore all external voices and let that inner voice guide you. It will show you where you need to go.
Keep taking action
The only way to follow your heart is to always be taking action. Always take steps forwards. Even if along the way you realize you are a little bit or a long way off it doesn’t matter. Adjust course, keep walking and start heading in the right direction. Being stuck in the same position and never growing is so much worse than a temporary detour.
When taking action to find your purpose don’t be afraid to start broad. Think back to when you were a child, you were in some way inclined to a path or hobby you found the most joy in. If you are lucky you followed this intuition, but if like me you let other people’s judgement stop you from heading there it may take time for you to get back. I’ve gone from knowing I wanted to help the world, to wanting to help people, to wanting to inspire people. Start broad and keep honing until you know where you want to be. Even though you’re not there yet just being on the path is its own reward.
Don’t stay somewhere you shouldn’t be
A lot of people may feel that they’ve spent so much time and energy working towards something that they can’t leave it behind now. This is such a flawed way of thinking, if you’ve already spent 3 years of your life being unmotivated and lacking passion, what’s the point in spending another 3 years doing the same thing. Accept that this has been part of your journey and then start changing course to where you should be going. Don’t let anything hold you back from finding your purpose.
When you’ve found your purpose – stick with it
And finally once you have found your passion stick to it. Once you know your life purpose do everything in your ability to make sure that you always follow it. No matter how small the steps of action you take are just keep on pushing and you will find the happiness you deserve.
“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” —Mark Twain.
