What's Your Purpose in Life - Purpose Comes From Passion

February 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 162

It can be hard to find what your purpose in life is when you have not yet discovered what your talents are and what it is that you enjoy doing. Every person was born with a certain set of skills and talents that are unique to every individual. If you want to find your purpose in this life spend your time building on your talents and do not waste your time trying to develop skills that you don't have.

Who are You?

There is a story where a man named Chris dies and goes to heaven. He meets St Peter at the pearl gates and is delighted to see the great saint. Chris was a huge history buff so in his curiosity he asks St Peter, "Who was the greatest general that ever lived?" St Peter looks at him than points at another soul in heaven and replies, "That man was the greatest general that God ever made." Chris begins laughing at the top of his lungs and manages to speak, "That man was just a janitor at the office where I worked." To this St Peter replies, "You are correct but had he gone into the military he would have been the greatest general the world had ever seen." The moral of the story is that a countless number in the world take jobs and work in places that are not made to harness their talent.

In order to find your purpose in this life you must first determine what your talents are. Each person has special traits as no two people are made exactly the same. I have worked with people before who were disgruntled with their lives and work. I have asked before, "What is it that you enjoy doing?" You would be surprised as to how many times I have been given a deer in the headlights look. In order to fulfill your calling on earth find your talents and passions. The best way to fulfill your life's work is through prayer and asking God's help in steering your life in the right direction. He surely will not ignore the prayers and petitions of those in need of His help.

The Next Step

We are lucky to live in the information age where there are countless resources to help you find your talents and strengths. When you have done this it becomes extremely important to build upon your talents and not waste time on trying to develop weaknesses. This will only lead to frustration. Everyone is advised that they are weak in a certain area and that they must spend more time trying to work on them. If you spend the same amount of time building your strengths you would be further along the path to happiness than most people.

In Conclusion

People are looking for what's their purpose in life but rarely take the time to focus on finding what their talents are and what makes them happy. Once you determine your strengths you must take the dedicated time to build on them and not waste time on talents you don't have. It is always easier to swim with the stream than upstream.
