What is it that you really want from life? What is it that you searching for? The answer to this often difficult question lies within; it’s what makes you happy, what sets your soul on fire, what makes you feel alive. I think that one of the most important things in life is to follow your heart. Your heart will lead you to your life purpose.
Important things to remember when searching for your purpose:
1. Explore and experience
If you never take that leap of faith and you never take the time to experience new things, it is going to be difficult to discover your life purpose. You need to open you heart and soul, you need to experience life to discover what it is that makes you tick
2. Understand the impact that your thoughts have on your soul
Your thoughts are a lot more powerful than you realise. DON’T believe everything you think. That self-doubt, the whispers in your head telling you that something is impossible, you’ve got to ignore those voices and just go for it.
3. You can do anything but not everything
It’s important to try to focus only on the important stuff. Try as much as possible to put aside those things that don’t matter and don’t require your attention. If we try to take on too much it can become overwhelming and more often than not this is what stands in the way of us reaching our dreams.
If your heart is not fully in it, whether it be a job, a project, a task, or even a relationship, it is unreasonable to think or expect that you will give it your all. Why would you throw your heart and soul into something that you’re not passionate about, something that you might not even enjoy.
I think many of us choose comfort over freedom because we would rather feel in control than journey into the unknown. The unknown is scary, it’s unpredictable, it’s risky and it can be very difficult to take those initial steps towards your dream, towards your purpose. But the truth is once you take that risk, once you venture into the darkness, it suddenly becomes light and everything begins to fall into place.
Something magical happens when you start being honest with yourself and start doing what you love. Getting yourself off the edge and into the first few feet is always the hardest part but once you’re off, you’re free. You’ve gone through the fear, thrown yourself into flight and suddenly everything starts to make sense. Things slow down, you’re in control and you feel alive.
So be brave. Believe in yourself. Do what feels good. Take risks. You have this one life. Live your life purpose and make yourself proud.
