What Stops Us Achieving Our Life Purpose

Many of us would love to be doing something that we love but allot of the time we are not and we feel trapped doing something we have no passion for.
I thought it might be useful to look at what diverts us from our life so we can be aware of it and start to change things for ourselves. I believe some of the reasons are as follows
1) Some of us may believe that we have no life purpose and that there is no direction for us. If this is you I'd advise you to read one of the previous posts on finding your life purpose and believe it when I tell you that there is something special that you are here to do.
2) Many people from the older generation grew up in hard times and were not familiar with ideas like life purpose. Things were more difficult and there was little time for navel gazing. There was a strong work ethic and the idea that we should work at anything no matter what was really important. I think the important thing to remember here is that although things are difficult today, if we are in a situation we have lost our job for instance, it gives us a chance to tap into what we really want in life and start to express ourselves as we really are.
3) Many of us including myself fear failure and not "succeeding" in life. Sometimes it feels like what we desire to do most in life can lead to the most failure. Our idea might seem crazy and we can't possibly see how it will lead to success. I have felt like this and it can be very difficult. What I try to do here is simply to trust that I will be supported as I make my way forward. When you start to believe in the divinity and power of life purpose this become easier.
