What is the Purpose of Life? #PurposeOfLife #WhatIsMyPurpose?

What is my purpose in life?” Have you asked this question lately? If you’re not sure, that’s perfectly normal. Our understanding of and relationship with our sense of purpose evolves and grows as we do. So it’s a good idea to periodically check in with ourselves through such orienting questions as we go through the journey of life.

Goal Setting is Purpose Making

If you have no sense of your purpose, you can begin that journey of discovery by steadily incorporating purpose questions in your daily routines, such as, “What is my purpose today?” And in your short and long term goal setting, such as “What is my purpose this week.” And, “What are my goals this month?”

Goals give us a destination to steer by and put us in the habit of focusing on purpose. It is in living our life that purpose is revealed to the receptive and inquiring mind.

Our task is to keep reorienting to that aspiration while remaining open and receptive to discoveries along the way. Think of it as an adventure on the journey of life. When we travel, we’re open to seeing and experiencing new things. Take the traveler’s mindset with you wherever you go and purpose will increasingly reveal itself to you.

“Our challenge is to instill the traveler’s mindset into the journey of the day.”

What is My Purpose in Life?

If you’re here reading this now, chances are you’ve asked this question at least once. That’s a good thing. If you don’t yet have the answer, that doesn’t matter. What matters is that you’ve set yourself on the journey of discovery by asking now, and that you keep on asking.

“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
~J.K. Rowlings via Dumbledore, in Harry Potter #3, Prisoner of Azkaban

Dumbledore quote: Happiness can be found even in the darkest of time." JK Rowlings #DumbledoreQuote #DarkestOfTimes# HappinessQuotes #HarryPotterQuotes

Your Purpose in Life Will Evolve as You Do

It doesn’t matter if you don’t yet know your purpose. What matters is that you’re asking the question and on the journey to finding out. By consciously being on that journey and asking that question, you will discover increasingly refined answers, that will evolve over time as you do.

Your purpose in life will expand and increase in clarity through your life experiences.

As you seek to discover your life purpose, remember that purpose is more about “why” than “what”.
~LeAura Alderson, iCreateDaily.com®

Why Versus What

Purpose is a usually a why, rather than a what. If your purpose is to create… to be a conscious creator, chances are the medium of your creation—the what—will change and evolve more over time than your purpose of creating.

One thing about creativity is that it rarely sticks to just one medium. Consider successful actors, who’ve gone on to become directors and producers, or singers who’ve gone on to become actors, and vice versa.

Ron Howard is one of our favorite actors turned directors and now he’s also teaching through the Master Class program. Madonna created herself and her career as a singer-songwriter. Savvy business woman and marketer that she is, she’s now making a name for herself as an excellent actor.

You can pour your ‘why’ into almost any ‘what’.

Creativity is limitless. Artists naturally expand their creative mediums as they grow. The artist is a channel for creativity and not limited by the medium.

Discover Your Life Slogan

What is the slogan of your life? Do you have one? Have you ever thought about it? Identifying a life slogan for each stage of your life can be fun. Some people choose a theme to focus on each year. But you can begin to identify a defining life slogan by asking these questions:

  • What drives me?
  • What inspires me?
  • Who inspires me?
  • What is my greatest strength?
  • What do I need most in my life right now?

30 Examples of Personal Life Slogans

Slogans can be statements, goals and affirmations, so many of these can also fall under the heading of Life Purpose Affirmations and vice versa—many affirmations could be slogans.

Start a Purpose Journal

Toward beginning to get to know yourself, you could start a ‘purpose journal’ by making a list of people, places and things that inspire you. That which inspires you gives you clues as to that which is within you that is responding to those things.

Below is a list of questions that will help you in your purpose of life discoveries, especially if you take the time to journal around one per day.

Some of these may take multiple pages to answer, and some less than one. When there are multiple pages, you may wish to spread that across several days of journaling. There’s no right or wrong answer… it’s all about you discovering you.

You can write and/or draw your answers. You may wish to use the iArtDaily 30 Day Intuitive Art Journals for this.
