    To raise smart, independent, and kind-hearted people in my children. I'm not sure that anything else matters for me.

    Sure, I'd love to travel, see the world, and definitely want to help others as much as I can, but I don't necessarily see those things as my ultimate purpose in life. Family is where it's at for me. And to ensure my children's future - there is no better purpose in life (for me) than that.

      I've asked myself this before and this is what I've determined.


      My purpose is to wisely use the gifts and talents that lie within me to not only better myself, but to help my fellow man in any way that I can, giving unselfishly when I am asked and even when I am not if I see a need, but also having the wisdom to know when some would take advantage of it and gently ease out of that situation trying not to offend, and yet recognizing at times that I must stand up in righteous indignation.


      I am here to be a blessing to all that I encounter, giving all that I am able with what I myself have been given. And it is my hope that I touch as many people as possible along the way whether it be easing some pain, cheering some up with just a smile, to give support, comfort, and help some to gain understanding when they feel lost, defeated or confused. And hope that in so doing, I show a glimmer of the love of my creator.


      I am traveling down the path that I have been set upon intent on fulfilling all that I have been commissioned to do so that when my journey here is through, I can be rewarded with the words, Well done! I am continually going to the next level as I learn, implement and share the lessons on the present one.


      All of this pertains to my personal life as well as in the business world. It is the same in both for I am who I am…

      Kudos to you for your mission of happiness! That is a goal I also share. I believe that true happiness comes from within, but being able to deliver some temporary euphoria to someone is a great feeling. Teaching someone how to be happy without external factors is even more rewarding, along the lines of teaching a man to fish as opposed to feeding him salmon.

      Good luck on the national debt. The way our monetary system is designed, it is literally impossible for our country to be debt-free. But we'll save that discussion for another time

    My current mantra that has helped me build great relationships with friends and more has been "if you make someones day better after interacting with you, feel good".

    As for life itself. I honestly want to do so much. I'm pretty good at SEO, I also am pretty smart (at least I think so). I know I want to make a lot of money just to free up my time to do greater things in life. Whether it is going for a career in stand-up comedy, making a new startup, or changing the world one way or another. I really want to have the world recognize me, acknowledge me for my good-doings.

    It's probably the middle-kid syndrome in me, but oh well.

    Honestly, I think my purpose in life is to get rich. To create wealth and do good things with the money. Making a difference in a few people lives.

    I feel as if I am an innovator and I have what it takes to make it. I hope to travel the world and see new life changing things. Im aging and so I feel like time is passing by so I need to really take stride if I am going to make it.

    When you define definite purpose it needs to be specific and not broad. Mine is to be in the top 5 self improvement/internet marketing coaches in the world before I am 40. I have income goals that are insane and they will be reached. Check out these 6 steps:

    The Most Important Part of
    THINK AND GROW RICH:
    (Excerpt from Think and Grow Rich,
    Turning Desire Into Riches, Chapter 2, pages 35-36):


    The Method by which DESIRE for riches can be transmuted into its financial equivalent, consists of six definite, practical steps:

    1. Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire. It is not sufficient merely to say, "I want plenty of money." Be definite as to the amount. (There is a psychological reason for definiteness which will be described in a subsequent chapter).


    2. Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you desire. (There is no such reality as "something for nothing.")

    3. Establish a definite plan date when you intend to possess the money you desire.

    4. Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.

    5. Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you intend to acquire, name the time limit for its acquisition, state what you intend to give in return for the money, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to accumulate it.

    6. Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before retiring at night, and once after arising in the morning. AS YOU READ----SEE AND FEEL AND BELIEVE YOURSELF ALREADY IN POSSESSION OF THE MONEY.

    It is important that you follow the instructions described in these six steps. It is especially important that you observe, and follow the instructions in the sixth paragraph. You may complain that it is impossible for you to "see yourself in possession of money" before you actually have it. Here is where a BURNING DESIRE will come to your aid. If you truly DESIRE money so keenly that your desire is an obsession, you will have no difficulty in convincing yourself that you will acquire it. The object is to want money, and to become so determined to have it that you CONVINCE yourself you will have it.

    The answer I'm supposed to give is,"To know and love God".

    *** I go, tip-toeing through the tulips...la di da di da...

    It just edited the word ***, as in the opposite of on.

    My work with my church is what motivates me to stay free of a 9 to 5 job so I can keep doing what's really fulfilling. Not having a boss and being home with the wife is great too!

    I think your purpose of life keep changing with amount of maturity, experience & age you gain over the time, So rite now my purpose of life is the maximize my earnings to the most & to reach my target of earning $10,000 per month by the end of this year, May be there is a time when money would not matter for me & I will have some different purpose in my life.

    My purpose of life:

    1.Support Jacque Fresco, so he can change the world to a place where education and progress are favoured over profit.
    2. Train as hard as I can.
    3. Learn as much as I can.

    That's it, and it drives me through my life and keeps me happy & motivated.

    warm regards,

    My, my. This is such a recurring question here lately that I've asked myself a lot.

    I had a very close friend commit suicide recently, and with that in mind it's had me thinking a lot. What the hell am I still around here for?

    It seems like all the good ones go way too soon.

    The conclusion I've come to is providing opportunity to other people. Opportunity can be anything from business to life. I've always been good with people and I believe my calling is to help in some way, shape, or form. The ability to empathize with other human's is a gift that I think I should capitalize on. Now this could make me money also, but it is something I enjoy doing.

    It's crucial to find what you enjoy doing. That is your niche. Once you get settled into it, life will start feeling a lot better. I know for me, it's been a struggle until I found what I really enjoy doing. Sometimes things might intimidate me still or frustrate me, but I stay focused on things I enjoy and it all smooths over. Even in my hardest times, I could find something positive to focus on, or help someone else.

    It always makes me feel good to do something for someone else. At the end of the day, I like being able to lay my head down knowing I've done all I can.

  • Great post and great responses! Everyone has a life purpose, but unfortunately most of us either don't know their life purpose or forgot what it is. To optimize your life, discovering and living your life purpose is essential. It's a tall task and takes a lot of soul searching, which is why most people are unable to achieve it. It takes some longer than others to figure it out. It took me a while, but I realized my life purpose is to work with youth athletes and help them optimize their abilities regardless of their talent level, and develop a champion mindset. The new movie "When the Game Stands Tall" is an excellent example of this. I truly believe sports can be an excellent way to prepare young people for life.

    For me, the purpose in Life cannot be truly known if you don't know the answers of this 3 Questions:

    1. Where did you came from?
    2. Why are you here?
    3. Where are you going?

    Regards,
    Joel

    In most cases, people tend ignore the much important and most basic issue in their lives (which is Finding Life's Purpose) because they are so preoccupied with petty things of everyday life. People are so preoccupied with questions like what clothes to wear, how to earn extra money, or where to go after work. But where are these questions leading to? Does attending to these questions bring us closer to finding answer to the basic question: Am I happy with the things I do? Am I happy the way my life is right now?

    Doesn't our job play a huge role in Finding Life's Purpose? What do we do for most part of our days? Most people indulged aimlessly in their career out of necessity. Yet, most careers are brought about by jobs that are not particularly of the person's choosing. However, the universe is subtly guiding us in our quest for our life's purpose. We might stray off the right path or might encounter some pitfalls along the way. But the universe will guide us back to that path which is the right path. We might commit mistakes and problems might arise as the consequences of these mistakes. But if we look at these problems from a different perspective, we might find that these mistakes are needed to help us learn, and that the problems are just detours that take you to a better path. Yet, there are guideposts to find our purpose in life.

    People might think that life is a procession of challenges and problems that keeps on coming. However, some people progress in life, while others seem to get stuck in the quagmire of life. It is because the universe continually creates for us what we hold in our minds, whether consciously or sub-consciously, through the law of attraction. So, if you keep on worrying about the lack of money, then, the universe will subsequently manifest in our lives the lack of money.

    Where you are now is just the manifestation of your thoughts in reality. As we are a part of the universal creative power that created the universe, we can also create with the use of the power of our thoughts. We are connected to the universe by means of our subconscious minds. The universe constantly gives us clues about the purpose of life. It is up to us to discover and know what these clues are. These clues might be subtly imbedded in our passion or hobby. All your life, you have been guided in finding your life's purpose. All your interest, activities, and experiences have led you where you were now. Try to look back and see what direction they are pointing out to you.

    My purpose in life is to be successful. Break free from the mental prison that society has placed upon us. We're not victims of our circumstances, we're all creators. I believe it takes a lifetime to really understand how much we can do. We can help others, but first we have to help ourselves.
