How would you complete this sentence?
"The purpose of my life is ______________."
It's not so easy to do, isn’t it?
What can be more purposeful and satisfying? Or, life-enhancing?I'm pretty sure your purpose in life...your reason for being...is somehow tied up in this mysteryup to a stage of life."How can I know this for certain?" you ask yourself. Answer will be‘you cannot’. You'll just have to let go of your need for certainty atleast until a stage where you can pursue your passion. Though security is impossible to find this side of eternity to achieve your purpose of life.
If I talk about my life phase from childhood to schooling, my purpose was to play and become a pilot. The same was my aim , same was my desire. I was not clear what exactly a purpose can be. Gradually coming to college life, purpose changed to engineering and craze about computers. I was inconsistent in deciding my purpose of life, and I believe similarly other people also are mostly inconsistent. Decision of purpose for life is slow steady process and it takes time to finalize it. Influence from parents, friends and neighbours also does matter to change your perception for your purpose but finally it’s your decision.
Though little late but discovering purpose of my life is easy part at this stage of life when I have 4 year of job experience after my studies. The hard part is keeping it with myself on a daily basis and working on myself to the point where I become that purpose. I aspire to achieve my purpose of life in each moment of my breathe and I am damn sure I will do so with my strong will.
What I believe is real purpose for life is not about my job, my daily responsibilities, or even my long-term goals. Real purpose is the real reason why I’m here at this point of time — the very reason I exist.
Here was my final answer for my purpose of life:
“To live energetically and courageously, to resonate with love and compassion, to awaken myself within others, and to leave this world in my satisfaction. My purpose of life is not always winning but to get satisfied with whatever I do. Sometimes losing to dear ones can soothe your life more than competing . The deepest form of purpose is to choose to be myself ratherthan trying to be anyone else.”
Everyone has their own ideas of what makes a beautiful life. What may give purpose and meaning to one person, maybe completely different to what gives purpose and meaning to another. In a general sense, I believe, a meaningful life is a life of happiness and self-accomplishment, a life that is surrounded by loved ones and activities that are enjoyed. If a person is content with what they are doing with their life, then to them their life is meaningful.
Cheers to life!!
