Law of Attraction: Finding Your Purpose in Life ...

Yesterday, Sonia Miller at Success for the Soul posted "Law of Attraction - Manifesting Power Increases When You Live from Your Life’s Purpose". A life of purpose is not without work. We won't start to achieve our purpose until we get into motion. But where do we start, in which direction? First ask ourselves, 'So what do I want in life'?

In general, majority of us are discontented with our work, our lifestyle, our financial security, our family or even the community at-large. We just do not feel that sense of fulfillment and satisfaction with what we are doing. But few have the courage to make the changes necessary to find happiness and fulfillment. We are afraid because we want to avoid failure. As we lead our empty lives, we sometimes turn to bigotry and hatred for solace that further prevents us from discovering our purpose and potential in life.

The purpose in life is to add value to our life that can in turn add value to others in the world. It is our expression of what makes us feel alive. It's like a road map of our inner being. When we reach the cross-road where our personal goals e.g. career and family meet with our purpose, we will be able to feel the sense of accomplishments with tremendous integrity. It’s something we do, where at the end of the day, we can say "I made a difference!".

So what do I want? How do I find my purpose?

According to Steve Pavlina, "How to discover your life purpose in about 20 minutes" at www.stevepavlina.com, here’s what we should do:
  1. Take out a blank sheet of paper or open up a word processor where you can type
  2. Write at the top, “What is my true purpose in life?”
  3. Write any answer that pops into your head. It doesn’t have to be a complete sentence. A short phrase is fine.
  4. Repeat step 3 until you write the answer that makes you cry. This is your purpose.
Whether it makes sense or not, or it feels ridiculous, the choice is certainly up to you. What's the harm of trying? It's probably not going to take more than 20 minutes of your time but consider the lifelong benefits of living with a purpose:
  • Focus
  • Growth
  • Peace
  • Satisfaction
  • Happiness
  • Self-esteem
  • Spirituality
  • Enjoyment
