Life Purpose - Exactly Whose Purpose Are You Living?
If you arenít living your life on purpose, then you must be living it accidentally. People who live accidentally ALWAYS end up settling for less than satisfactory lives. So how about living your life with purpose and on purpose? Besides, youíll sleep better at night knowing just who the person is youíre sleeping with every night. In other words, youíll know yourself thoroughly and intimately.
Your Personal Compass and a Life of Purpose
Life has targets and distractions. The clearer you are about what and where your targets are, the better shot you have at hitting them. Likewise, the sharper your awareness of any distractions in or around your life, the easier it is to avoid them.
Living a life of purpose and on purpose means forming a clear definition of your primary life target: Your Life Purpose. Itís knowing who you are, why youíre here, and what it is youíre to do with this life of yours. Your life purpose becomes your personal compass which gives your life direction, and thereby creates a purposeful life.
People who donít know their life purpose often find themselves chasing the dreams of others, or doing what they think others think they should do. This is referred to as an inherited purpose. Such people live a life based on assumption, presumption, and old programming. These are all distractions from oneís true self; and being distracted results in an unfulfilled life full of co-dependent relationships and unsatisfactory career paths. Essentially this means youíre living according to other peopleís values and purpose.
So let me ask you Ė are you living according to other people's values and purpose or YOUR OWN???
