Follow Your Joy to Discover Your Purpose


What if you could spend every day doing what you love to do?

By Roger Young

What if you could spend every day doing what you love to do? What were you born to do? Doing what brings you joy and allows you to utilize your talents to provide value.
This is what it’s like to live with purpose! 
A purpose-driven life is infinitely more satisfying than a life without true meaning because you are living your authentic self- the real you. When you know your true purpose, you can focus your time, attention, and effort on what’s most important. With purpose you are more efficient and effective because you are spending time on what matters most. 
There are entire books dedicated to helping you discover your purpose; however, the following questions can help you gain a better understanding of yours:

  • What makes you happy? What brings you joy?
  • What would you like to be known for? 
  • What parts of your life leave you feeling most alive and satisfied?
  • When you lose complete track of time, what are you doing? 

Finding your purpose is a dynamic, lifelong journey that should continually be reevaluated. After all, what’s truly important to people changes throughout life. Major life transitions such as graduation, marriage, kids, and retirement to name a few are events that impact what’s important in life.

To get a sense of where you are in your life’s journey, write down your answers to the above questions and reflect on them over the next several days and weeks.

Ask yourself what two actions you could take, right now, to move closer to your life’s purpose. Then, select one of the actions that will have the most immediate impact and do it!

Your journey begins NOW!
