Have you chosen a purpose in life?

Clint Maun, CSP

Everyone must have a purpose in life. This purpose guides all of our actions. In fact, you can't see goals unless you have defined the true meaning of your life.

Identifying your purpose remember that your life has many dimensions. Satisfy your deep needs for true meaning and choose personal and family relationship that bring love to your life. In addition, satisfy community and religious goals that meet your spiritual needs. Your culture and recreational goals must enrich your life and make it fun to live. Once you have looked at these dimensions of your life, it is important to answer 3 tough questions:
  1. Who am I? Write a short description of who you really are as a person.
  2. What am I doing here? What do you want to contribute with your life that will help you and make the world a better place to live. In other words write your own epitaph. What do you want people to say about you after you've departed this life?
  3. Where am I going? What direction will you pursue in your life? Then you need to rate on a 1 to 10 scale your performance in life to death.
By answering these 3 questions you will be able to define a true purpose for your life.
