People experience dramatic improvement to their psychological well-being when they have identified meaningful purpose in their lives. Regardless of one’s particular spiritual tradition or philosophical base, there is profound psychological value in clearly defining a customised purpose. Purpose in life is the intended result of our focus, determination and intention. It is the entire point of our existence.
Purpose is something we strive towards, an aim or goal, an intention.
A purpose sets the entire context for our lives. Without a clearly defined purpose, we are just a haphazard combination of goals and non-goals and actions and non-actions meandering through space and time. A purpose is a master plan for our life. Knowing our purpose helps us define our goals. It helps us avoid getting lost in the minutia of daily life by keeping our eyes on the target. It can make life much more enjoyable and effortless.
Purpose is something we must choose for ourselves
Purpose is not something that others choose for us; rather, it is something we must choose for ourselves. It emerges from an exploration of what we value most. When we are defining our purpose in life, it is important to not worry about how we will go about achieving it. Defining our purpose helps us focus.
As long as your purpose fills you with passion, it can be simple and safe or grandiose and daring. My purpose is to facilitate transformation and bring healing to the world. All of my activities, intentions, and goals emerge from this basic purpose.
