Many people ask themselves why they do the things they do. Purpose refers to how we attach meaning to what we do and how we contribute to society as a whole. Finding your purpose can be a difficult task and some people spend their whole lives trying to find an answer. Is it about a job, money and security or are there other, less tangible, goals that are more important to you?
One way to think about your purpose is to answer honestly answer the following questions about yourself:
• Who am I?
• What is my main contribution to society?
• If I had a year to live, what would I do?
• What are my beliefs, morals and principles?
• What activities truly engage me?
By considering the answers to these questions you can begin to see what your purpose might be.
