How to Discover Why You’re Here in One Hour or Less

Just Amazing!I think we all wonder why we’re here, do you?  After all, you were created with a unique set of passions, and gifts that no one else in the world can duplicate! Discovering your purpose in life lets you use your unique collection of feelings and abilities to bring you greater self-fulfillment.

“There is one quality which one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.”  Napoleon Hill

Is Your Life on Purpose?  

When you’re doing what you feel like you must have been born to do, you can create a life you enjoy through and through. Your goals will have more meaning to you and challenges will be naturally easier to overcome as you joyfully move toward achieving those goals.

This process for finding your life purpose enables you to tune in to your inner self and figure out what makes you unique.  Take the time to find your purpose – your life will certainly change for the better!

Prepare Yourself for This Exercise

For this process, an open mind is not absolutely necessary, but helpful. It doesn’t matter if you don’t think this will work – it just means it might take a little longer. All you really must have are a piece of paper, something to write with, and approximately an hour of peace and quiet.

As you’re doing this exercise, try to empty your mind as much as possible. The clearer your mind is, the faster and easier the process will be. Also, do this while you’re relaxed, alone, and unlikely to be disturbed. Turn off the cell phone.

The Discovery Process

  1. Focus on your intention. Write at the top of your paper: “This is my life purpose.” This simple act sets your intention in your mind for the next hour.
  2. Begin listing your thoughts – even doubts about this process. As you clear your mind and focus on this process, write whatever comes to mind, no matter what it is, don’t edit. If you think to yourself, “This isn’t going to work for me,” then you would write, “This isn’t going to work for me.”
  3. Brainstorm. Answering these questions will get you started. Then keep writing your thoughts until you find your life purpose.
  • What are your talents, gifts and special abilities?
  • Which talents would you like to develop further? Why?
  • What are you really passionate about?
  • Do you get joy from helping others? Who?
  • Have you always wanted to be a philanthropist?  Not just money, but your time.
  • What activities do you enjoy?
  • What have you always wanted to do, but you haven’t done it yet?
  • Who do you most enjoy being around? Adults? Children? Why?
  • Do you love animals?
  • Do you like to travel?
  • Do you want more excitement in your life?
  • What are your favorite books or movies? Why?
  • How do you feel about your relationships?
  • Do you take an interest in politics or world matters?
  • What is your most important priority in your life? Family? Work? Something else?
  • Do you have a bucket list in your head, that you’ve haven’t shared with anyone?

4. How will you know?  You’ll just know. It will be the answer that fills you with the most emotion. You may even cry. The idea will resonate with you completely, and there won’t be any doubt.  Just continue writing whatever  comes into your mind until you reach that point.

  • Commonly, answers will repeat themselves. A lot of unrelated nonsense is also likely to come out. Our brains can be a little cluttered, and this exercise will expose that fact. Don’t let anything you write distract you from your intentions; odd things quite frequently end up on the paper.
  • There will be several answers along the path that will resonate with you, but remember, you’re looking for the big one. When you see the ones that are good, but not “it,” this means you’re close, but not quite on target yet.
  • You’re looking for that one idea that feels overwhelming to you. In this exercise, it’s common for your life purpose to reveal itself in less than 95 ideas, but it can take as many as 400. Keep writing.

How Can I Consciously Use My Life Purpose to Benefit Me?

Now that you’ve discovered your purpose, always do your best to honor it. To do so, keep it in mind consistently. Ask yourself, “Is this in alignment with my highest purpose?” A life lived like this, with direction and intentionality, is a life you can truly enjoy.

Set aside a time to do this when you know you’ll have some peace and quiet. Having the knowledge of the core reason you’re here is one of the greatest gifts you could ever give yourself. Live your life on purpose.
