What is it that you are missing in your life? What is it that you’d most like to have? Would you like more love, more freedom, more peace?
In life, we strive and fight in our own lives to get whatever it is that we believe we need or want. We reach personal and professional goals and get what we can afford. But is that what life is actually about? Is that what makes our soul thrive and feel happy? Is it what makes me satisfied and complete?
What are you missing? What haven’t you got enough of? What do you want to have more of?
What would you miss?
If you dream of getting things, what need are these things trying to meet? What do they give you? What do they make you feel, power, satisfaction, peace… ? If you dream of attaining goal after goal, what does success mean to you? These things and goals are the way to fulfill your personal needs and those needs somehow mask what you desire. Ask yourself, then, what it is that your being needs, what it is that you crave day after day, what is it that will make you feel whole and complete.
As soon as you know, why not turn that into your life purpose? Imagine planning your days and actions with that general purpose in mind. Everything you do then has that ultimate purpose. Your life immediately adopts a new meaning. Imagine you select “peace” as your life purpose.Whenever dealing with others, you will now aim peace as the highest goal. Your relationships will have that ultimate goal. And so will your job. Along with your leisure time. And your everyday actions, And the objectives you would like to reach. Your life goal becomes your inner compass, your north, your way to follow no matter what. If you deviate from it, you may feel bad because you won’t be aligned with it. Which is the exact reason that will lead you to returning to it and resuming it. As soon as your life goal is defined, it is far easier to return to it. This step that I am taking, this conversation that I am having, this action that I’m undertaking… is aligned with my purpose? Is making me move ahead? Otherwise, what do I need to do to change it?
Give yourself the gift of the life compass. Do not you see how your life is changed? Pick your goal and re-focus your life.
