The signature of purpose

“You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world.”

― Woodrow Wilson

Purpose drives happiness.   What do you think you purpose is?   Is your purpose defined by what you do?  Is your purpose doing well in school?  Is your purpose to help other people?   What do you think your purpose is?

For many people this idea of purpose isn’t something to be examined because examining it reveals a sense of emptiness, that life is without meaning.   Purpose is the definition of what gives meaning to life for you.

Purpose is something you do.   Purpose is something you are.   When you live your purpose you are producing results that are useful.    When you are able to fulfill your purpose you’ll probably find happiness and joy.  You’ll experience a richer and more vibrant life.   You’ll feel alive and energized.   It doesn’t mean that life will be easy and there won’t be struggles, part of life is the experience of challenge and difficulty and discovering ways to overcome those challenges.

The signature of purpose is an experience of satisfaction, significance and happiness in your life.  If you’re not experiencing deep satisfaction in what you do and who you are take a look at your purpose, it may need to be adjusted.
