Most people think that the amount of success and wealth they have accumulated, the firm and power or even the position they are in life, is what they need to live a purposeful life. Sometimes even when they have reached or attained success in a big way, they still have that space or empty feeling in their lives, they still experience that something is missing out in their lives.
In order to be completely fulfilled, all you need is to have a personal relationship with the one and only true God. He is the only one to show you your life purpose and why He created you. So until you begin to live in your purpose, you might just be moving round in circles. No one created by God has the same purpose, you are unique in your way, do not try to copy other people, you can learn from them, but stay focused on your purpose. Below are some ways to live your life with a purpose.
1. Have your core and beliefs
When you are living a life of purpose, you will definitely have your core and beliefs. Try to live your life base on values that influence your decisions, and your daily activities will be shaped and you will begin to see the determination in all you do. When you are in your purpose the only thing that will be in your mind is the determination to succeed.
2. Have priorities
How you set your priorities matters in life. People who live a life of purpose knows what they want and what is important, and that is what they focus on. They are always busy on how to achieve their goals and not letting anything distract them or take their attention off their desire.
3. Follow your passion
People who live in their purpose are excited every day, they can’t wait to work on their purpose. They wake up each morning happy and eager to face the new day. They run after their dream with passion, they put all their energy into what they do and they feel fulfilled. They also have the conviction that they are making a difference in the world and the people around them. As l said in one of my quotes Life is too short to be wasted on things that are not important. Live each day full of passion as if it is your last on earth.
4. Find your balance
Finding your balance means that you should be able to balance your relationships, family, and friends. Your career should not be an obstacle. Where your heart is that is where your passion is. People living their purpose in life build relationships they live in their purpose and are reserved.
5. Be content
You are content when you live a life of purpose. There is this inner peace you experience. You are not bothered about things you don’t need. You will find satisfaction in all you do and have. You live for God and have the faith that all things work together for those that believe and trust in Him. What bothers others do not move or bother you.
6. Be different or make a difference
when your live life of purpose, the only thing that will come to your mind is how to make a difference in this world and how you can be different and make a meaningful impact on people’s lives or in someone’s life. You do things for people without any expectation of gain or reward. You serve people. Just like how Jesus gave His life for us, people who live the life of purpose knows all they need to do is to add value to other people’s life. They are happy to see others succeed.
7. Live in the moment
People who live a life of purpose don’t live a life of regrets. They look forward and cherish every moment. They are not judgemental and do not keep records of hurts. Like I said in one of my quotes. Don’t get angry when people walk out of your life, they are never meant to be in your future.
