how to find your life purpose
Sharing is Caring
Plan and outline how you want to live your life

Do you sometimes sit down, and stare into oblivion, wondering what this life meant to you, and what you were born to achieve?

It’s certainly not an easy task trying to figure out what you want or trying to know how to find your life’s purpose.

But let me start with the fact that you are unique.

This isn’t just mere flattery to get you reading this post, I am telling you that because it is true, and it is high time you start seeing yourself that way.

No two people are the same,


Your life may seem like it is on pause, or it isn’t moving at all, and I understand. For a lot of people, especially those in their twenties,

this is a phase we all tend to go through.

We ask ourselves things like:

  • What is my life’s purpose?
  • How do I find my life’s purpose?
  • What career do I want to go into?
  • What skills do I want to learn?
  • Why do I feel like my life isn’t moving and everyone else’s is?
  • Why is everyone moving forward but for me?

All these questions and more, seep into your mind, and as it goes in, we fall into depression, so deep that we don’t know when we got in,

or how to get out.

I decided to write this post, on how to find your life’s purpose, to give you a jumpstart to finding what you want,

what you want to accomplish, without comparing yourself to anyone, or criticizing yourself constantly.

This journal prompts on how to find your life’s purpose will give you a head start in your journey, and help you answer those deep questions you have.

And if journaling seems a bit foreign to you, learn how to start a journal, and give yourself a head start to this amazing world.

It may not be all you need, because the answer to the question ‘How to find your Life’s purpose’ will have to be written a hin huge book.

There is no single answer, but what I can give you, is taking baby steps to answer the question.

Consider this as baby step one in your progress. Make sure you get a journal and take 30 days to answer these questions yourself,

Truthfully and open-mindedly, for that is when you will see with your mind, what your eyes cannot see.

To take you further, and especially for us young lads in our twenties, I highly recommend the books which will be shown in the ad below.

Books have not only helped me get out of my closet but have also enabled millions of people around the world,

answer unending questions and find out how to make the most of their lives.

The books have a twist of humor in them, so you can laugh, enjoy yourself and still learn deeply.

I hope these prompts have helped to give you a head start in your journey to self-discovery you want more,
