Living with purpose is the greatest type of lifestyle in the world.
Successful people live a life with purpose because they do passionate work for a living.
I noticed there's one single thing that makes them obsessed to their work and guarantees their success: They never stop learning.
This is one of the most basic things that we know how to be successful, but most people are likely to forget this.
Successful people's learning never stops.
If you want to be successful, then never stop learning.
What you learn doesn't really matter. What matters is that you learn something. If you want to be living with purpose, then keep constantly improving yourself.
When you are ready to learn, teachers will appear.
The problem is the start.
I don't care what you learn, just do and learn something.
I can guarantee that after several months or years later you will be a different person if you constantly learn things. And the difference is massive.
Are you ready to learn?
What are you waiting for?
If you spend your time waiting for the right mood or right moment or someone to act, you are procrastinating to live your passion.
Why waste your times waiting for the "best time and condition"?
You only live once. And your life is very short.
When you wait, that means you are going with the motions, that means you are giving up control, that means you are giving up possibilities, that means you are wasting your life.
You must act something daily.
It's 100% controllable for you to learn things. There are very few things you can control over, learning is one of it.
So, you don't have a reason that you have nothing to do at a moment.
Stop procrastinating. What are you waiting for?
People feel depressed because they are not satisfied with their life. They have unmet needs that they do not meet.
Learning can cope with that.
When you feel depressed about something or someone, do something.
No matter what is it, just do something.
When you take some actions, your mind will notice that at least you have done something or made a move to solve the problems, this will alleviate your bad mood instantly.
All you have to do is making the decision to start.
There are many things to learn. Learn about yourself. Test your physical capability. Master new skills.
Once you start for a few days, the momentum will build.
Ultimately you will be living with purpose. You start with learning, doing experiments, and repeat this until you find what you love to do. And then keep learning, improve yourself until you become an expert of your passion.
Living with purpose is fulfillment. Live a life with purpose is excitement!
You are responsible to your own success. No one can help you to be successful if you don't want to. No one can keep you from improving yourself daily. No one, even your parents.
Excuses are for those people who don't want it bad enough.
You can be an expert if you want it bad enough.
When you become an expert at something, people even pay you for your help. That's for you can do what you love for a living.
All it comes back to the constant improvement. Being persistent is the key to success.
Learn what you love is less likely to feel resistance and more willing to do it routinely.
Remember, it's all under your control.
If you are not where you desired to be, you should be doing something every day to get you closer.
Your goal is big or small doesn't matter. What matters is you are passionate about it.
So, what are you going to learn today?
What if you don't have a life purpose?
I just covered you an approach above that is by learning and experimenting things in life to find out what you love to do.
This approach will take some of your times. If you want a shortcut, good news, luckily there is one.
This shortcut can help you to find your life purpose in about 20 minutes. This method is introduced by Steve Pavlina.
Here’s what to do:
Take out a blank sheet of paper, or open up a word processor. (I prefer the latter because I type faster than write.)
And then write at the top, "What is my true purpose in life?"
Then write an answer that pops into your head. Any answer.
You don't have to write a complete sentence, a short phrase is fine.
After writing down an answer, repeat it.
Keep answering the question "What is my true purpose in life?" until you write the answer that makes you cry. You can list whatever answer pops into your head as long as you just keep writing.
The answer that makes you CRY is your life purpose.
Along the answering progress, you may get similar answers for times, some of them will give you a mini-surge of emotion, but they don’t quite make you cry. It's ok, just write until you cry.
This must be done alone with no interruptions.
I have done this and reached the answer that made me cry when around 17 minutes. The answer 19, 20, 21, 22, 26, 36, 38 gave me a mini-surge of emotion, but answer 40 made me cry.
My life purpose is to become happy with absolute abilities to control my life without losing anymore.
When going through the answering progress, like described in Steve's article, I feel a sense of resistance because I have to open my heart and answer honestly with no any conservation.
This method works! Give it a try. You will know what matters to you in life.
Now you know how to find your life purpose. And you know you can know it by learning and experimenting in life.
What you learn doesn't matter. Just do something.
Until next time.
