Ultimately, you give purpose to your life; you create your own purpose. But if you want to figure out what purpose to give yourself—and what purpose you have already given yourself—where you would be most fulfilled in fulfilling this purpose, you can do this by considering a few key things:
1) What have your greatest struggles in life been?
Your greatest struggles are an indication of where your greatest strengths will arise as you overcome these struggles. This is where you have the greatest ability to transform and represent how to achieve the best version of what’s possible by simply facing yourself and going forward yourself. These are indications of where you can achieve the greatest fulfillment—not by struggling, but by moving past and beyond this.
2) What have your greatest strengths been?
Your greatest strengths that have been there all along or that have resulted from the overcoming of struggles are all clear indications of where you can find immense fulfillment. Focus on your strengths, both natural and evolving, and exercise, encourage, and build on them, and you will be very fulfilled.
3) What have your greatest interests been?
When you bring your greatest strengths, both those that are natural and those that have resulted from overcoming struggles, to bear in an area of great interest to you, you have the recipe for fulfillment.
Now, imagine what it would feel like when you’re nearing the end of your life, whenever this may be, and you actually feel like you’ve fulfilled your purpose here and are totally at peace with moving on and letting go. You’ve accomplished everything you wanted to, ultimately—everything that truly mattered to you. You spent your time here as you wanted to, and as you would have wanted to even if you could do it all over again.
Consider what feels right from this place, and you will know the purpose of your life—the purpose that you would like to give to your life and fulfill here.
