Life With Purpose

By Nellmari

There is a strong correlation between happiness and the sense of purpose or meaning of life. We were created to be happy but we often go through situations in our lives that diminish our happiness and we lose the focus of our purpose. We start looking for happiness by doing things that don’t make sense, in people who are toxic, in jobs that don’t produce meaning in your life.

These exercises are designed to help you find your own personal sense of purpose and meaning. The most important thing about this exercise is that you be honest with yourself. Be real so you can have real results. Take as much time as you need. I recommend you choose a time where you don’t have interruptions and feel free to have a personal conversation with yourself.

  1. Recall times of great satisfaction and happiness in your life.
    • What were you doing?
    • What were the circumstances?
    • What is the underlying theme, if any?
  2. Recall times when you were occupied with an activity and lost all track of time.
    • What were you doing?
    • What talents were you using?
  3. Start with a blank sheet of paper or a computer. At the top, write
    My purpose in life is…

Start writing whatever comes to your mind. When you write something that evokes great emotion, perhaps even tears of joy, you’ve touched on a life purpose that is meaningful and important to you.

In the midst of a crisis, discover your purpose and start living a life of success no matter the circumstances. Determine goals and organize your life to take a step to the next level.

Now, let’s start discovering your purpose. Say a prayer before beginning this exercise and ask God to help you pour out everything that is meaningful to you and dare to live a life with purpose.
