My sister have spent her entire life hanging from one job to another. In every job she repeated the same phrase ” I’m not happy ” . My sister wasn’t a slave to the system. She had courage to stand up for herself. She did so when she found herself unhappy with a certain job. But she couldn’t quit the old fashioned mentality! She was like any human, looking for happiness & success. She was someone who believed happiness & success exist with a common job, especially in a super developed city. My sister failed to realise what she’s looking for is in fact easy to achieve; and found with in .
“DON’T ASK YOURSELF WHAT YOU CAN GIVE TO THE WORLD, ASK WHAT MAKES YOU ALIVE .” This’s one of my favourite quotes plus the reason for my sister’s dissatisfaction. Non of the positions she obtained were fulfilling her, simply because she wasn’t living her life mission. We’re all born with a gift. A gift that’s suppose to be used for the service of others. Everybody’s gift is different. However, in order to find what your gift is; you must discover who you are not. When you know who you are not , who you are will become clearer.
Note : Don’t confuse your gift with passion or interests! One of the common mistakes nowadays is that people have too many interests. So they run around trying to do everything. While you can only get excellent at one thing, Which is your gift.
But How do I find my gift / purpose in life faster? Experience.
A wise man once told me on my way to Africa; to welcome all experiences and go through them UNTIL THE END. Finish them ! … This was back then when I had the habit of jumping around from one thing to the next.
The more you experience the better you know what not to do, which later guide you to your purpose. Dont take failing as something too seriouse. You’re not worthless! Your failure is for two reasons, either the thing you failed in is not meant for you ( not your purpose) or it is your purpose in life, but you’re on the road of learning. EMBRACE AND LOVE EVERY FAILURE, BECAUSE EVERY FAILURE IS A STEP FORWARD.
You will know your purpose. Be patient. I’m confidently saying this because it’s within you; Your truth and all you need is within you. There’s nothing easier to find than what is already inside you. Always follow your gut feeling. Also what I said earlier about feeling alive. Then add to the equation “How can I serve others “…Anddddd booom!! There you have it. The first thought is the answer. Now put it into experience & see what happens.
