If you don’t wake up most mornings feeling a sense of meaning and excitement about your day, it probably means that you’re not pursuing your life purpose.
Society and the media have been trying to tell you what your life purpose is, but I’m here to tell you that they’re lying to you. There is another path you can take.
What Society Wants You To Believe Your Life Purpose Is
Society teaches us that acquiring money and stuff is the purpose of life.
We’re constantly bombarded with advertisements showing happy people who just bought some new gadget or service.
People we meet always seem to be checking out what kind of car we drive. Or they’re often comparing jobs, houses, and clothing with us.
It seems like money and stuff are how we are judged in today’s society. So to deal with this, we spend much of our time trying to acquire more of both. The problem is that neither of these things offer any lasting happiness or fulfillment.
When you’re on your deathbed, do you think that a bunch of money and stuff will really mean anything to you? I think a lot of people have figured this out to some degree already. They just haven’t been able to determine what other options they have.
When you don’t see any purpose or meaning to life, you are left feeling empty.
I strongly believe that this is why many people spend their time distracting themselves. Excessive television viewing, constant use of mp3 players, drug and alcohol abuse; all these things serve to take our attention away from how we feel inside.
Dare To Be Different
If you don’t wake up most mornings feeling a sense of meaning to your life, and excitement about your day, it probably means that you’re not pursuing your life purpose. You need to discover what you’re passionate about and find a way to make it benefit others as well. That is your purpose in life.
Nothing will provide you more happiness then living a life of service doing something you love. Just ask yourself, would your rather have a bunch of stuff, or would you rather feel happy and fulfilled?
Oddly enough, when you choose to pursue your life purpose, the money and stuff often end up showing up anyways.
