This Thing Called Purpose

We all yearn for meaningful lives. I have never met a single soul who wants to depart this world without it knowing that they were here. But we can spend our entire lives searching for value and meaning all to no avail. We can be extremely busy doing a plethora of things; making money, chasing this deal and that venture yet still know deep down inside that something big is missing. That missing ingredient to a successful and fulfilling life is called purpose. Purpose is defined as the reason for which something is done or created or the reason for which something exists. Do you know why you were created or why you exist? Have you found that thing that makes you tick? Have you finally discovered that thing that you would be willing to die for?

Finding one's purpose is like finding that lonely needle in a haystack. Everything clicks when we discover why we are here and what we are called to do. Life becomes a lot clearer. A new fire is lit within. Nothing satisfies the soul more than living a life of purpose.

If you haven't found your mission yet, do yourself a favor. Take time to discover the real reason behind your existence and then invest the time it takes to perfect it. As soon as you start operating in the purpose for your life, you begin to reap the benefits that come from deep satisfaction about the direction your life is moving in. The joy that you experience is immeasurable. The peace is like no other.
