To some people, it’s easy to talk about purpose, vision, mission etc; while to some of us it’s been doing what works best and even striving to be a little better every day without too much thinking of what the future looks like. Whatever it is for you presently – finding your purpose is something everyone will eventually find time to ponder.
Unfortunately, to many people it happens more on their death bed. “How much of my life did I commit to what’s truly important and meaningful to me?”
As you can guess, it takes a little effort; time and reflections to know what you’re actually good at and focusing on it.
But we know its not as easy as can be said;
1)Our interest changes over time – You can start out with a particular course, die hard loyal to an interest; life event happens – you could decide to pursue another interest.
2) Talents vs work – some of us are very talented in particular fields, some less talented – yet we might find ourselves in the same work or field despite our degree of talents.
To add salt to the injury; you might find someone worse than you heading you, or making more money than you. With all these challenges, mentioned; it’s NOT an excuse to work on ourselves.

To most of us; we might need to do a whole lot of shit, try different paths, execute several ideas, before finding that path which actually gives us life the most.
As a guide, which is where I’m driving at - the more you commit to service and helping others; the easier this path is going to be for you.

It does not mean being a “Yes-man” or engaging in stuff you hate just to please others. Its finding that thing you can do that seems like play to you but perceived as WORK to others.
For me it’s through Entrepreneurship, helping others stay healthy through simple lifestyle choices, habits and helping others reach their full potential by being the best of their selves daily.
Here are some questions to ponder about right now;
1. What do I feel inspired by?
2. What am I particularly talented at?
3. What needs significant change in the world?
Once you start finding yourself; its time to start living more intentional.
Your purpose in life isn’t just gonna manifest out of thin air
1) Set an Aim
2) Make a Plan
Go after it every single day.
