How To Live On Purpose?

Live On Purpose

“Our purpose here on earth: to manifest the very nature of our spirit, which is touched by the spirit of God.”

~Rumi

It’s hard to know what your purpose is when you’re young let alone know how to live on purpose. It can seem like the world is too big and life is too long, but I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be so hard! Writing this blog post has been a reminder for me of how important it is to live on purpose because in my experience being young really sucks.

When people are younger they don’t have as many responsibilities or worries, which makes things seem like they’ll never end. But with age comes wisdom and experience which can make all the difference in determining one’s path and true meaning in life.

My advice? Just do something meaningful now, while you still can!

Living on Purpose means that your actions align with what’s most important to you–or in other words, live deliberately by doing something meaningful or fulfilling for someone else!

Living purposefully also requires self-awareness, being present, recognizing that there are different ways of knowing how to live an intentional life (different perspectives), mindfulness, courage and trust.

What is living on purpose?

It means different things for everyone, but your purpose is what you live and breathe every day. What about the common misconception that living on purpose requires money?

Absolutely not! In fact, some of the wealthiest people live with no real meaning in their lives because they put so much focus into making more money. The best advice I can offer to someone who feels lost or like there isn’t a reason to keep going is: do something meaningful and fulfilling instead of focusing on how many bucks are in your bank account. Remember–it’s never too late to live life on purpose!

Living on purpose also requires being present.

This means that there is a constant awareness of what’s happening at the moment instead of living on autopilot and letting life pass you by. When people live with presence, they live more deliberately, leading to greater happiness because it gives them time for themselves and those around them will benefit from their focused attention too!

To live on purpose also requires self-awareness.

Self-awareness comes when we can understand our thoughts, emotions, behaviours, decisions, etc., so that we can make smarter choices about how to live life going forward. This process can be difficult at first as we learn new ways of thinking but eventually becomes second nature–like riding a bike without having someone show us how or breathing properly because it will otherwise be dangerous!

Self-awareness is the foundation for living on purpose. When we live from a place of self-awareness it allows us to live more authentically and be our most authentic selves in every moment–being true to ourselves, others, and life itself. It’s way better than living without any meaning or hope which can lead you into depression or even worse…suicide (please don’t).

Living on purpose also includes recognizing that there are different perspectives about how to live an intentional life, so you should try some new things instead of doing what feels comfortable because sometimes comfort isn’t always best for growth. Life will become boring if you only do one thing over and over again until death 😉

Why live on purpose?

There are many reasons to live on purpose but the most important is that it feels good and makes life worth living! When we live on purpose, our lives have meaning. We feel fulfilled and complete because, in some small way, this world will be a better place with us in it.

There are many reasons but the most important is that it feels good and makes life worth living!

The best advice I can offer is to do things that make you happy and fulfilled–live life on purpose by doing something meaningful or fulfilling for someone else!

The greatest gift you can give to yourself or anyone else is love–the truest form of life on purpose which I’m certain everyone wants more of 🙂
