Life without a purpose is mundane and boring. It is like going into any direction without knowing where we are heading. It may sound exciting to get into the idea of “being lost” but in reality, people who go through the feeling of being “without purpose” get into depression sooner or later.
We have seen many cases where people grave steps such as suicide as well when they go through this prolong feeling of having “no purpose to live”.
Is it really so difficult to find your purpose in life?
When the negativity starts pondering in our mind, even the obvious the things start becoming irrelevant and senseless. What we need the most in such times is a piece of sincere advice and counsel. Although nothing beats the effect of heart to heart talk with a depressed person yet the useful advices can be really helpful through reading good articles as well.
Therefore, let us help you in defining the purpose of your life through this article.
- There is a drive in each one of us:
When we were born, our surroundings, environment and the people in our life had tried to teach us a lot of things. Some of them we learnt while others we had inherited from our genes or generations. We often hear the cases of a “little dancer” in a family or “singer”- these incidences reflect clearly that we all are born with some or other inherent talents but not all of us get a chance to find it and utilise it.
With utilising the talent we do not mean that it has to make your a rock-star or celebrity of the world. All you need to have a knowledge of what drives you passionate to wake up in the mid of night to do something that you had always wanted to do!
Find that drive in you; it will help you in finding the purpose in life.
- Help someone out there:
Well, passion is one thing to define your purpose- what your talent is or what you are good at doing!
But as human beings we all know that our purpose in life is to promote fellowship and helping other humans in leading a smooth and comfortable life as well.
Therefore, every now and then, take out time and thoughts and try to help out someone in their tasks. You do not need to go to orphanages to find the goodness inside you. Just look around- someone in your family must be needing your help in their tasks or struggles through the life, or may be someone is up to a hard job just outside your house that you can always assist and help!
Such activities make you responsible, connected, liberated and free. You enjoy these small acts of kindness that help you define your another significant purpose in life- to be a good human and promoting kindness.
- Come along with NATURE:
Nature imparts a lot of learning to us that will help us in meeting our life’s purpose. You will energise in the lap of nature and a walk amongst the meadows and valleys beats all depression and sadness that gets incubated from the daily city and metro life.
If you cannot manage to take holidays very often, just go out and plant some trees and saplings. Water them every day. Seeing them grow will give you another purpose in life- to be dutiful towards mother earth.
