The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.

                                                                                                                                                Mark Twain.

The day we are born marks the beginning of our journey on the planet, and the day we find out why we are born gives meaning to the journey. You were sent to earth with a mission to fulfill. This mission has to do with your passion. If you want to be happy and fulfilled with enthusiasm, you have to discover what your mission is and organise your life and activities in function of your mission. You were born for a purpose. God created each of us for a reason and we are happiest when we are living in harmony with the purpose he has given us. You need to know what it is. Many people have no idea what life is all about. They live, and they die, searching for some kind of meaning, wondering whether their lives have purpose, where they fit, whether they really matter in the grand scheme of things. Most people have the wrong idea about their life purpose. Perhaps you have experienced moments when you felt truly connected, like you were performing a task you were made for maybe when you were dancing, comforting someone, or creating a piece of art or music. It is likely that this was a moment of being in harmony with your purpose. Living on purpose feels alive, clear, and authentic. You may also experience “flow,” which is a state of total absorption in which time seems to disappear and you feel content and fulfilled.

In the first book of the bible, Christians are told that God created humans “in his own image”. Obviously, man is not in God’s image in terms of height or weight or skin colour. God is spirit, uncreated, and man is created of matter. Still, God has made humanity in his own image, which means that there are essential ways in which he has made man to be like him. Man is self-aware, he can communicate, plan, think creatively, design and build, solve problems, and be a force for good in the world. Discovering your mission can bring about self-confidence in life. Your mission is inside you, manifested by your natural talents, desires and passions. Look at what excites you. What kind of activities bring joy and satisfaction? What is it that you spend countless hours on? Your mission does not necessarily contain fame and popularity. Many people are implementing their mission with a low profile, in their own personal environment. Your success in fulfilling your mission cannot be measured by external signs such as riches or glamour. The real criteria for measuring success are enthusiasm, joy, energy, satisfaction, the knowing that everything has its meaning and the feeling that you are on the right place doing the right thing with the right people. A person’s life destiny is a strictly individual matter and can thusly not be imitated or copied. You can be inspired by the courage and perseverance of another, but you cannot live a copy of that person’s life. A mission is like a suit in the big wardrobe of life. There is exactly one suit that fits you like a second skin, tailor-made for you only. If you try on the suit made for another, you are making two mistakes. First, your own suit remains in the closet, unused. Second, you have taken the suit of another and are thus taking the wrong place in the switchboard of life. If you are not following your own mission, then you are following that of another.

What you study in school does not necessarily mean that is your purpose here on earth. You may study anthropology whereas you are very creative but in mechanical engineering. It took me a decade to discover that what I studied does not match with life purpose. My life purpose “to use my humor, creativity, and knowledge inspire people accomplish their dreams and unveil their talent”, but what I studied in school is electrical engineering.

 

English actor, comedian and screenwriter Rowan Atkinson was born on January 6, 1955. He is commonly called Mr. Bean. Atkinson studied at Newcastle University and Oxford University, and earned a master’s degree in electrical engineering. Mr. Bean today is a comedian not an electrical engineer. He feels happy while performing comedy, he feels alive, he does it with joy. Without doubt one can say his purpose is to put smiles on people’s faces not to repair electrical machines.

What you study doesn’t necessarily mean that is your mission. Very few are lucky to have chosen a career in line with their life purpose.

SELF DEVELOPMENT QUESTIONS THAT LEAD TO PURPOSE DISCOVERY

Asking the right self-discovery questions can be a powerful way gets to know who you really are, challenge false beliefs about yourself, and get clear about what you truly want for your life. Most of us have been strongly conditioned by early childhood experiences, so much so that we act out of unconscious patterns without stopping to question if they bring an enduring sense of happiness. At the core of our desires is living a life of purpose and meaning. At the core of a life of purpose and meaning is being of service to others. At the core of being of service to others is finding peace and happiness. At the core of finding peace and happiness, we discover who we are. Everyone has those moments in life when you stop and evaluate where you are at and where you are heading. Most of the time those evaluations come because of a simple but powerful question. These types of questions can change our lives, turn us in another direction and open our minds to new experiences and people. In my quest for clarity, purpose and self growth, I have come to realize that asking the right questions, is sometimes in itself the answer. I know these questions are not meant to be easy or comfortable, but they are important to ask and to know. As you ask yourself questions, the process of self-inquiry begins, and at first, it is uncomfortable and unfamiliar especially if you have never done it yet in time, it becomes easier and even fun.

You are a unique child of this world. You are brilliant, smart and wise. You are deep and fascinating. You are gifted and talented. You are beyond capable to do what you dream. You are loved, loving and lovable. You are not too old or too fat or too poor. You are not too slow or too boring. You are simply none of the terrible things you tell yourself. You’re quite the opposite. You are more than enough. So it is up to you to decide if this self-discovery process is worthwhile, I would say trust me on this. Getting to know yourself is worthwhile. Remember, there is no one final answer. It’s a continuous discovery process. Your answers to the questions today will be different from your answers one month, three months, six months, and one year down the road. Add these important questions to your weekly review sessions. This is highly important for your journey.
