What is Your Purpose? Why You Must Know!

BE live in yourself

“Why are you here? What do you want to be and do more than anything else? What are you most passionate about? What is your mission during this lifetime?

Through the  eons thought leaders have pointed out that there were those who succeeded in life making their dreams come true. There were those who failed who did not or seemingly could not make it.

The major reasons for failure  pointed out was that people ‘drifted’. Those who had no ‘definite chief aim’ or purpose in life failed because they did not define or clarify what was most important to them.

Almost every self help text and book written through the ages points out you must know your purpose in life and pursue it. A definite purpose gives your life and actions meaning. To not go after something bigger than yourself is to live aimlessly. Drifting means to be tossed around like a cork bobbing in the water. So why are you here?

Think of it as a destination. When you know where you want to go you can figure out how to get there. You know when you are getting closer. If you have no clue where you want to end up you never actually arrive. Knowing your destination gives you something to aim at. Knowing your purpose gives your life meaning and direction.

It is important  to ask ourselves and determine what makes us most passionate? It could be great wealth, it could be service to others, it could be being an actor or artist, it could be becoming a loving parent, it could be working in science, finance, teaching, nursing, carpentry. What it might be is wide open. ‘IT’ could be anything!

It could be anything but only you will know what that is! No one else can tell you or inform you what you definite purpose or chief aim in life is.

SO Why are you here? What do you want to be and do more than anything else? What are you most passionate about? What is your mission?

The secret is to discovering or determining your purpose is to ask yourself what you want in life?  What do you love doing more than anything else?  It is the most important thing you can do for yourself and the world.

People who reach the pinnacles pursue their purpose non-stop day and night. They know why they are here and what they must do, They know why they must do it. It has been said, ‘what consumes your mind controls your life’, ‘what you think about you become!’

It can be challenging finding your purpose but once you do your life will never be the same. Once you clearly know it and focus on it you most likely will make it happen because you will be driven to. You will focus all of your energy and your thoughts on pursuing it. Every moment becomes and opportunity to make it happen. You will make opportunities and discover them as well. Defeats will always only be temporary along the road.

When you consciously and unconsciously know your purpose every atom of your being ‘gets it’.

Few people ever define their purpose. It is said 5% or less actually think about it and write it down. Those who do discover theirs almost always achieve it because their entire being is aligned, congruent, dedicated and determined to succeed. They stop at nothing because they know why they are here and what they are to do with their lives.

You definite chief purpose can be a permanent overall life time pursuit. The one aim for your entire life.  You may have different goals or purposes for different areas of your life or for different projects. You can have more than one purpose.  Your purpose may be different at different times in your life. Spring and autumn differ. To begin the process just look at what you are most passionate about.

Some people find their purpose by discovering what they like and are most passionate about. Others discover their purpose in disaster, tragic circumstances, through suffering or loss. Many fail only to rise like a phoenix and go on to great things. Adversity and failing can be the very impetus that causes people to take stock and decide what they want and to go after with every fiber of their being.

Many learn to live in powerful and positive ways and inspire others inviting them to live positively too. They make an impact on the world and they touch the lives of others by finding what is truly most important to them. Some people dedicate themselves to making the world a better place one person at a time beginning with themselves, while others work for large groups of people.

The key to any great success is to find your purpose, discover, determine your definite chief aim in life.


This is an important theme we have discussed in this blog and will return to again and again. For this moment, get clear! Ask yourself:

What do you love to do more than anything else? What positive  impact would you like to make on the world? Why are you here? What are you to do in this lifetime? What are you passionate about?

Life is too short to not go after what you want. You don’t want to waste your life because of the day to day demands placed on you. So remember the saying ‘where there is a will there is a way’. You can go after your definite chief aim starting right where you are at this moment.

You may not know the way yet, don’t worry, you don’t have to, just get clear on your purpose first. Everything else will begin to fall in place when you do. Remember, we become what we think about most often!” Rex Sikes

Have a fantastic day! Declare it to be so and make it happen!
