What's Your Purpose?

Often, I find people I talk to are stuck in their roles in life. When I ask them what their purpose in life is, I get a variety of responses that are impacted by their current positions and responsibilities.

This question has intrigued humanity for centuries and arose once survival was not the main priority. It's a profound question that elicits a wide array of responses, often rooted in one's personal beliefs, experiences, and perspectives. While there is no one-size-fits-all answer, here are some common themes I hear in response to the question, “What’s your purpose?”

  • Serving God by following the teachings of Jesus and spreading His word. Christians are called to live a life of moral and ethical integrity, adhering to the values and principles outlined in the Bible, including avoiding sin, seeking forgiveness, and striving to live a righteous and holy life.

  • Leaving a legacy that makes the world a better place

  • Finding joy and happiness

  • Teaching and education

  • Creating innovation in technology

  • Making more money

  • Discovering medicine for healing

  • Creating peace around them

  • Being a mentor to others, being their example in life

  • Having great families that train their children to live safe and prosperous, moral, and ethical lives, teaching them to carry on their legacy.

  • Another common perspective is making a positive impact on the lives of others. Achieving this through acts of kindness, charity, mentorship, or service to one's community and the world.

We must know our purpose to know we are doing what we must do.
