At some point in our lives we all seek to find the purpose of our life and will ask questions like, “Why am I here?” and “What am I supposed to do?”
When you think about it, the one hundred or so years most of us have on this planet is a long time… we I might as well be productive.
But how do you figure out what some already seem to know?
Have you ever noticed how some folks seem to have their life figured out from the time the doctor slapped them on the butt and brought them into the world – while others almost stumble upon their purpose?
Then, there are those few who never find their purpose and don’t care if they ever do and some who never got the memo they should be looking for their purpose in the first place.
What about the rest of us?
The truth is, most folks in this big world of ours eventually seek their purpose in life as if their happiness depends on it… and it does!
Of course, many will begin their journey around the time they turn 40 and will do it on a motorcycle, climbing a mountain or jumping out of an airplane.
That’s the bad news.
The good news is, eventually most will come to their senses and take a deeper look.
By the way, if you haven’t found your purpose in life there is no need to worry. Just think of your purpose in life as finding your purpose in life. See how easy that was?
I know it sounds simple, but sometimes simple works – and there is a simple way to lose the drama figure things out.
To discover your purpose in life all you need to do is ask yourself THE secret question.
“How do I want to feel?” See? Simple!
It works because asking the question allows you to get out of your own way, tap into your imagination and listen to what your inner self really wants in life.
I know it sounds simple… but simple really works!
Now, don’t get me wrong because your inner self really likes riding a motorcycle and you do look great in leather… but there is a little more to life.
Face it, if you’re reading this article you are probably human, which means you are an emotional creature, hard wired to think with your emotions and that simple question will allow you to honor your inner feelings and design your life and your experiences around it.
It really is as simple as slowing down and focusing on what you are feeling and trusting your gut to point you in the right direction.
Wasn’t that easy?
Next time you get a little confused about how to discover your purpose in life you now know to ask the secret question. How do I want to feel?
The rest will take care itself.
