So you’re a first-time leader? Here’s what you need to know!
Everybody needs a life purpose. Without it, you are drifting, hazy in your goals, and you may have a sense of being lost. You may feel that life is futile: What are we here for anyway? Without purpose, you may well be thinking, “What’s the point?” Life is empty and meaningless without purpose. Here are five reasons why you really must find out your life’s purpose.
We are given a precious life, which is finite and goes by like a flash. If we live a life without purpose, we may reach the end of life and experience regrets. You don’t want to have regrets, right? There really is no time to lose. When you have a purpose, you can work with efficiency, drive, and passion, doing what you love to do, helping others. All you have to do is figure out what your purpose is!
Once you figure out your purpose, you will live a life full of meaning. No longer, will it all seem pointless but you will be enriched with the knowledge that your goals will benefit others. Your life will not have all been for nothing. What’s more, you will feel energized and focused with a drive you didn’t know you had! You will feel confident in the knowledge that your life will have been worthwhile.
When you know why you are here, you will be able to move mountains. You will have an end goal, and you will be able to surmount obstacles in pursuit of that final outcome. You will feel so determined because you are so passionate about what it is you have come here to do. Nothing can stand in your way. You will feel indomitable!
Your purpose will inevitably be tied in with your unique gifts. Everybody has gifts and it is a crime not to share them with others. There are people out here who are just longing to receive the gifts, you can offer, and who will benefit greatly from what only you can bring. In fact, it would be selfish not to share your gifts with others who really need your help. When you share your gifts with the world, you will automatically be living your purpose. You will feel great fulfilment by giving what you have to offer. It will make your life worthwhile.
You will have a vision and that vision will bring about clarity. When you are driven by your passions and a desire to be of service, each action will have a clear motivation behind it and, since you know where you are headed, all that drifting and hazy-headedness will give way to a crystal-clear sense of what you need to do in this very moment. Your life will come into perspective, the compass arrow will be set, and you will feel more alive than ever before.
Having a purpose is like having a tune-up. When you have a life purpose, you will feel energized, focused, and alive, knowing that there is no time to lose. You will know where you are headed and you will be clear on which steps to take in order to get you there.
Your compass will be set and you can share what you are great at and what you love with others who will be grateful to receive your gifts. Having a purpose will give your life meaning and you will feel able to accomplish anything.
