Do you believe that you were put on this earth for a purpose?
Do you often ask yourself – What am I going to do with my life?
Do you envy others who are happy at work and are living their dreams and passionate about the work that they do?
What were you expecting when you saw the title of this post?
Does everyone hope to be happy?
What kind of existential questions do you ask yourself?
Identifying what you were born to do requires an openness to self-reflect and to take the time to answer the questions that pop into your mind. In asking yourself what you were born to do – you basically have to break this question down. (Tackling such an enormous all-encompassing existential question would in any other case be overwhelming).
So – how do you determine what you were born to do?
Here are some questions you can ask yourself:
What interests me (i.e., what can I do and time just flies by)
What did I dream of doing when I was a child? (be kind to your inner child – no dream is ridiculous or impossible)
What is it I am not choosing to do?
What makes me light up?
What is my inner voice telling me?
In taking the time to answer these questions it is important to remember that: – There is NO RIGHT or WRONG job when it comes to choosing what makes you get out of bed in the morning – YOU are UNIQUE; therefore, whatever it is you choose to do should reflect your INDIVIDUALITY – Nobody actually cares what you end up doing with YOUR LIFE and – NO ONE CAN DO IT FOR YOU! In addition to these UNIVERSAL TRUTHS do remember that just because you choose to follow YOUR PASSION it does not mean that the path will be smooth and easy. Chances are it will be quite ROCKY and you will be facing OPINIONS, JUDGEMENTS and JEALOUSY from your entourage. However, as you struggle you will have strength to go on because you will know that this was YOUR CHOICE! Let me add a GOOD ONE for that matter!
