Purpose of Life: 3 Benefits and 3 Steps to Finding Your Life Purpose
If you’re confused about the purpose of life, the simple way to solve this issue is to finally decide it’s time for you to seriously map out your life’s authentic mission.
The number one reason most people are living without purpose is because they’ve never taken the time to think life through.
Most people are living conservative, boring lives without feeling the excitement they should be.
Most people are living with a deep sense of dread or fear instead of experiencing the true purpose of life: to have fun.
That’s right, life is actually supposed to be fun.
Unfortunately, you may have learned along the way that you were supposed to be miserable all day long. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Let’s take a look at three benefits that come with discovering and living your Life Purpose. Then, we’ll take a look at three tips to help you begin this process.

The first benefit to working toward your own purpose of life is that you define your Personal Philosophy. Your Personal Philosophy comes down to how you view life. It’s the paradigm through which you see the world you live in.
This is where you write down the values, morals, and principles by which you intend to live by. There’s a huge difference in the Life Purpose of a person valuing honesty and integrity as opposed to the person who doesn’t mind lying and cheating now and then.
Like many others, you may very well be living a life today that doesn’t match up with your Personal Philosophy.
Does your job have you doing things that go against your morals and principles? Have you allowed a friend, family member, or spouse to steer you in directions that have you violating your values?
Getting your Personal Philosophy solidified will allow you to make life decisions quite easily from the viewpoint of principles that you hold highly.
As your Life Purpose comes squarely into view, your entire life vision changes. Instead of living life “by accident” and hoping things work out, you now see clearly how each decision affects you now and in the future.
With your purpose of life mapped out, you no longer accept anything that violates that purpose and vision. Imagine the difference in your quality of life when you make choices based on personal truth rather than anything else society may be suggesting you do.
Since most people in today’s society are trapped in “survival mode”, they have abandoned all thoughts of “purpose” or living with “intention”.
However, when you decide to finally rise above this and work on yourself in order to live your Life Purpose, you’ll find that your discovery of your authentic reason for being alive will result in a life where you make a difference to those around you.
Discovering your Life Purpose is magical. It comes with a sense of meaning. It allows you to effect positive change on a world in need of such a thing. It allows you to finally stop saying, “someday” and to begin living “now”. You help others “now”… you make a difference “now”.
What a joyous way to live life!
Now that you’ve read about three of the many benefits you’ll receive when you take the time to discover your purpose of life, let’s take a look at three steps that will help you along this path.
The first thing you want to understand is that you’re not going to discover the answers to your Life Purpose by looking outside of yourself. On the contrary, this is when you need to begin finding quiet time where you can focus within for the answers to your personal purpose of life.
This is not only a personal growth process, but a spiritual growth process as well. You’re working on learning about your inner self and the lessons this spiritual being can teach you. You may want to invest time in learning about the various meditation methods in order to help you focus within.
Going back to your childhood is a key aspect to discovering the purpose of life. There was a magical time at some point in your childhood when you looked at life as magical, special, joyous, and amazing. This life paradigm had nothing to do with achievement or validation from others.
At one point, you were filled with joy and wonder simply for being alive. This is the place you want to get yourself back in touch with!
Begin focusing on all that you enjoyed as a child. Think about your interests, the games you loved to play, the hobbies you loved to participate in, etc. Begin thinking about that which makes you happy simply “because” and you’re getting closer to your own purpose of life.
Something happens when you write down your thoughts. It becomes more real to you. It has a much larger effect on your mind than when you simply think about it.
Therefore, make sure you write down your innermost thoughts and feelings as you begin to focus on discovering your Life Purpose.
You’ve learned three benefits of discovering the purpose of life and three ways you can begin working toward your personal Life Purpose. While there are literally dozens of steps necessary to work through in this process, these three should help you get started.
