Do you have a purpose for your life?

Some people believe they are on this planet for a reason and other people believe they have no reason for being here. But it is clear that whether one believes in the former or the latter, it is going to have massive impact on their life.

And as Henry Ford once said - “Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.” In this case it would be ‘whether you think you have a purpose or not--you’re right’. Ultimately, it is a decision that one must make themselves and from this place, they will be able to create a life of purpose.

This outlook will then define what they experience and how they interpret the experiences that they have. The inner belief that their life has meaning and purpose will be reflected back to them.

Through having a purpose, it is going to give one something to focus on. And as there are so many things in the world for people to focus on, this is incredibly important. Without a focus, ones time, energy and attention can end up being wasted.

When one has a purpose, they will be able to be distracted, but not for too long. They will be aware of their priorities in life and their point of focus will soon change. So when one has a sense of purpose they are going to be able to handle distractions better, and when they don’t, they are likely to be an easy target.

As human beings are interdependent, it means that when one follows their own purpose they are going to make a difference in other people’s lives. And ones contribution might be recognised by a lot of people or it might go unnoticed by the majority of people.

But what matters is that one is playing their part and the reward will be the fulfillment this gives them.
