22 Inspiring Quotes On The Power of Purpose

Share on:


AFFIRMATION: Living my purpose is the reason I am here.

Many people are searching for purpose, whether it’s their personal or bigger questions to why we are here. Purpose gives us direction. It’s like a map, a plan, that helps us to navigate our lives. 

Searching for purpose may sound cliché, but it’s important. It brings meaning into our lives and this benefits our mental, emotional, and physical health. Research has shown that having a purpose can make us live longer. It also guides us to make the right decisions that line up with our values.

If you are having trouble finding yours, start taking part in activities that bring you joy or you’re passionate about. What makes us happy can lead us to our purpose. Then brainstorm these ideas on how you can incorporate them into your life. It doesn’t need to be your full-time job. Just doing something an hour a week can bring in fulfillment.

We can ask others for their insight into what are our strengths. Sometimes people can see things in us we cannot. And we can have more than one purpose and they can change. Just because we were passionate about something five years ago, doesn’t mean we still are today. Open up to what excites now. When you live a purpose-driven life, your confidence and self-worth increases and this leads to overall well-being and happiness.
