Most people aren’t born knowing what to do with their lives. It’s a struggle every adult goes through at one point or another in their lives. Part of the problem is the concept of “a life’s purpose” the idea that we’re born for a higher purpose and it’s our life’s mission to find out what that is. This idea intimidates most people. However you need not feel intimidated, if you’re searching for your purpose in life your soul is on the right track. The one question you must ask yourself is: “What do you want your legacy to be?”
In other words, how do you want to remembered? For example: Maybe your passion is adopting children, and giving them love, guidance, and a secure home. Whatever your passion is find it, pursue it, and live it. Knowing your purpose is not something you’re born with it must be cultivated. Having a direction adds meaning to your life. It helps you to live longer, buffer against setbacks and is linked to well-being and an overall quality of life.
