Discovering Your Purpose!

Purpose is a result, end, mean, aim, or goal of an action intentionally undertaken. Whether or not the purpose was a primary or secondary effect. It is possible that an intentional act may have multiple purposes .Purpose is related to the term pose as to "put in a certain position. There is a fundamental human need for guiding ideals that give meaning to our actions. Renowned psychiatrist Victor Frankl’s premise is that "man’s search for meaning" is the primary motivation of his life. Purpose as "a stable and generalized intention to accomplish something that is at meaningful to the self and of consequence to the world beyond the self". According to some philosophies, purpose is central to a good human life. I believe that God, as the force that created life, assigns purposes to people and that it is their mission to fulfill them. Some people feel that purpose is not fixed, but instead freely chosen (or not chosen) by individuals and can change throughout life. Among these, some say that natural propensities may determine what sorts of purposes a person needs to pursue, but do not guarantee that he or she will pursue them. Oftentimes, it is fundamental for one to attempt to fulfill the purpose one feels is theirs. But in some occasions, fulfillment of purpose is halted by fear, the fear that the purpose one is trying to fulfill won't be fulfilled due to personal failures. In other words, someone who feels that they have a purpose that they must fulfill, might not attempt to do so because of the fear they can't do it. Modern spiritual philosophy sees the purpose in life as improving the environment and the world condition for all beings. One's understanding about their purpose in relation to their evaluation of worthwhile causes and how their lives and gifts are attached to their purpose, is vital for discoveriing how their going to live their making . You can find your purpose in life by listening to your heart and taking action. Focus less on the things you want to do and more on the things you need to do, those things that drive you. Not believing that you have a purpose won’t prevent you from discovering it, just as a lack of belief in gravity won’t prevent you from falling. All that a lack of belief will do is cause it to take longer for you to walk in your purpose. Discovering your purpose is the easy part. The hard part is keeping it with you on a daily basis and working on yourself to the point where you become that purpose. Purposeful living in the end makes it much easier to make decisions and take action in life, and you’ll find that your life just seems to work once you know your purpose. Your purpose for living gives you access to your dreams. You must use your life for the right purposes, for if you don't then your life will not make the difference that it was created to make.
