Have you ever asked yourself, what is my purpose for being here? Why am I here? Or perhaps, you may have at one time felt there has to be more to life than this. You may have even said to yourself at one time or another, you were meant to do more, be more, or even live more abundantly than you are living.
So many people have asked this question or questions, including me at one time or another. I can assure you the answer is different for everyone. I believe in order to answer that question, it would be a matter of one’s perspective of existence. Why and how did we as human come into existence? There are many theories out there, but the only one that holds any significance is the one you believe.
If you believe you people were put on this earth for a divine purpose, great! Then you have an idea to work with as to why you might exist. However, if you believe by some mysterious reason man appeared on earth that is great too. Then I would say, you have a direction to explore and work with why you are here. Both beliefs will lead you down a path where the answers would undoubtedly be different.
Now that you are here. Now what? If you were trying to answer that question with no real answer in sight. It’s alright too. I want to share with you what I believe will help you find a purpose when you believe no purpose for your life exists. In my own opinion, your purpose is not going to land in your lap. You can manufacture a purpose in your life through questions that you ask yourself.
This is a no judgment-free zone here, so you are free to write down whatever comes to mind. Don’t hold anything back and definitely keep your feelings out of it for a few minutes. Alright! Great! Let’s get started.
Questions to Ask yourself
- What do you want to be able to do in the next twelve months?
- How would being whatever, you want to be or do in twelve months, change your life?
- How would you feel?
- Would you want other people to notice? Why? What would that mean to you?
- Would you want other people to be proud of you?
- Would it matter what other people feel about your twelve-month accomplishment and why?
I believe you have to drill down in questioning yourself just like a kid would ask you why is the sky blue? Once you give them the reason, they would come back and ask you why? You have to drill down to the core reason why something means so much to you and then ask “why?” again.
The process is up to you and only you. If you wanted to build muscle, you would have to exercise that particular muscle. No one else can exercise for you to build your muscle. You have to be the one to put in the work to reap the benefits.
More Questions to Ask Yourself
Here are more questions that are important and for some people critical to ask.
- What would you like to have in the next year, five years, and ten years? Why?
- Would you like to have a new home? Why?
- Would you like to have a vacation home? Why?
- Would you like to have a plane, yacht, or string of investments? Which investments, or what kind?
Expand your creativity and provide yourself with a purpose. Would you like to be more involved in different causes? If so, which ones speak to you the most? Why? Don’t forget for every question you ask yourself a question, you must ask yourself why and why is it important?
I know this is a great deal at first but it’s critical to ask yourself and prepare to alter the foundation for which you are to build a purposeful life with the capacity to grow and help others.
Two Critical Questions Everyone Should Ask Them Selves
- If money was not an object and you were able to pay all your bills with ease, what would you do with your time?
- If you had one month to live what would you do in that one month?
