Most of us find ourselves at that point in life when we have no clue where we are heading and what we are actually doing in our lives. We keep asking ourselves what is the purpose of this life, what are we supposed to be doing and so on. But it’s rather difficult to answer these questions!
There is this belief that every individual, at a certain age should actually know what the purpose of their life is, what are they supposed to do and what is their passion. However, the answers to these questions are uncertain. But there are few questions that may help you find out what are you supposed to do with your life and what your life purpose is:
- What makes you forget the world around you?
The answer to this would be something you may be highly passionate about. Something that makes you feel at peace. You often wouldn’t realize that it’s been hours since you have been doing something you love. That itself is a good feeling and that passion is a huge part of your life. It makes you who you are.
- What is that truth about you that would make you cry when you were 8-year-old?
Whatever the answer is, you would need or want to change or start doing that. Remember, your 8-year old self is far more innocent than you are today and probably has a good reason to cry. As we grow up, we have tendencies to lose touch of something we probably loved or start doing something that we hated. Hence, change that part and you will feel you have discovered a new you.
- What makes you forget to eat?
Sure we all love eating and more than necessity, there is pleasure in indulging. However, there are times when you are so wrapped up in doing something that you forget eating. It is when you are done with that work, and then you realize that you are hungry. That is what passion is; that is where the joy of doing something lies and that is where the inner satisfaction comes from.
- What is your Bucket List?
Bucket List is basically a list of those things that you want to accomplish before you die. That list is actually very powerful and is like a light that guides you through the journey of life. You may jot down anything and everything that is in your heart and try your best to make it happen. It will be a very fulfilling experience.
- If you were jobless what would you do to pass your time?
Ask yourself what you would be doing if you didn’t have a job. Be very honest with yourself and the answer may surprise you. It may be a good blend of productive activities and leisure activities but it would surely be very satisfying. Sometimes in order to do what you are supposed to do, you often forget to do ‘what you love to do’!
- If you knew you were going to die in six months, what would you do?
It may be difficult to think about death but this is a very crucial question. But the answer to that would make you focus on what all is important for you and what all you want to achieve. It will make you look back and ahead in life in all new perspective.
