The search for the answer to “What is my mission in life?” can be a daunting one, but it can also be immediately life affirming. Although, it’s a question we may encounter on several occasions in our lifetime, we aren’t born with the tools to supply a well-formed and meaningful response. We need to discover it. And that discovery must be meaningful and earnest. But do we have the courage to answer it?
Finding your mission in life comes with some ego shattering, consciousness awakening sacrifice. Be prepared to cover some shaky ground as the answer to “What is my mission in life?” may unravel you and your world. Not many of us are willing to face the music and make an attempt at the answer. However, the closer you are to uncovering it, the closer you are to finding out what is our purpose on Earth and beyond.
In our quest to learn how to become more spiritually aware, finding your true purpose in life is par for the course. The answer to the question: “What is my mission in life?” requires a deep look in the mirror and at the rest of our lives. Have we been fulfilled until this point? Has life passed us by? Have we been able to discover a personal vision and mission in life? If the answer is, “No”, then your quest is just beginning.
What Does It Mean To Have A Mission In Life (Or Life Purpose)?
Some might call it a midlife crisis. Nowadays, it’s creeping closer to a quarter life crisis. You’ll be happy to know that it’s neither. Feel free to relabel it as a ‘course correction’. You’ve been spending your whole life developing and working on yourself only to realize that you never stopped to ask for directions from your soul or your inner child.
Adding a brief (or not so brief) pause to ask the question: “What is my mission in life?“ and be patient enough to wait for an answer requires quiet determination. Not many stop to smell the roses. But it rings true that this is where the true meaning and pillars of life are found. In between long periods of distraction, we can carve out time to refocus, recalibrate, and ask, “Will this path lead me to my ultimate mission in life?”
Having ‘a true calling’ in life comes in two ways. Either you know out of the womb what it is. Or you need to take time to figure it out. Taking time out from your ordinary schedule and stopping to breathe long enough to look around and look inwardly, using your heart and soul.
People that ask themselves, “What is my mission in life?” are more likely to be more fulfilled. They are seeking what drives them, what makes them get out of bed in the morning, or what makes them tick.
It is a life affirming (and life defining) moment when you can answer the question: “What Is My Mission In Life?” It requires looking into a mirror and reevaluating everything that was and what will be. You may want to follow the beat of your own drummer. This is often a difficult path because you’re not following in the footsteps of your parents or close family members.
Deciding on your personal vision and mission in life may upend some relationships. A course correction isn’t always seamless. Often people are averse to change. So when you edit your path and abandon your original plans, other people may take it personally and feel dismissed or discounted. This is all a part of the aftermath. Be ready for it. Prepare for it. But don’t fear it. Make adjustments as needed.
How To Find Your Mission In Life
How do you find out your purpose in life? Finding your mission in life starts with asking yourself the right questions. You can also explore your feelings and undergo deep introspection to reveal your soul purpose. Your emotions are a good and very accurate measure of what motivates you and unearthing what your sole purpose is.
Very simply, if something disagrees with you, then it is something you can stay away from. Or if something is vibes with you, then you should follow that good vibration and keeping going! It will lead you to your calling.
Here are some questions you can ask yourself:
- What makes my heart sing?
- What meaningful challenge really charges my batteries and I can’t I get enough of?
- What is guaranteed to bring a smile to my face every single time?
- Is there a side project or hobby that once completed would give me great joy?
- How can I bring more happiness into my life?
- How much time each day can I devote to a pleasurable pursuit? What is that pleasurable pursuit?
Understand that asking these questions are just a start. Explore your feelings. Keep a record of your day to day activities. Be adventurous. Go out of your way to discover new activities that make you happy. It’s okay if you find something that doesn’t fit with your nature. Every ‘no’ is closer to yes.
Following synchronicities will also lead your to your life purpose. Synchronicities arise because of your thought process. If your thoughts are good, positive, and optimistic, then you will be given synchronicities (signs from the universe) that you’re headed to the full manifestation of that positive thought. Your positive thoughts will lead you to the ultimate positive outcome.
However, the reverse is also true, which is why it is vital to always remain in control of your thoughts. (Chaotic thoughts and calamitous thoughts also apply.) Allowing them to stray into negative thought streams is detrimental to your progress and happiness in life. Once in control of your thoughts, always aim for positive, bright, sunny, happy thoughts, especially when in the face of adversity.
How To Find Your Purpose And Passion In Life
Discovering your purpose in life should be a welcomed event. Taking the time out to focus on your wants, needs, and desires and seeing where there might be some overlap with your passions is a healthy and joyful way to answer the question: “What is my mission in life?”.
Your passion in life may be different from your purpose in life. A passion may be something that you do in your spare time, but don’t necessarily earn a wage or income from. It may be volunteering for a cause. It could be something that is ancillary to your mission in life. Passions can also feed your purpose or mission.
Your purpose in life is often something that you become skilled at and eventually people seek you out for this. Take a step back and think about what problems people come to you with. And think about how easy it is for you to solve this problem. Does it take a lot of time? Can you visualize the solution before undertaking it? Sometimes the solution is a lot of work. But you have a better idea of how to solve it than the person with the problem.
Questions To Discover Your Purpose
- What am I good at? What skills do I have that are above average, if not, near exceptional?
- What do other people comment on or tell me I’m good at?
- What activities do I enjoy, even though they are challenging?
- What is the closest I’ve ever come to heavenly bliss while working?
- When was the last time I yelled out a satisfying, “Yesssssss!” after fulfilling a great task?
- What type of work could I do over and over and over again and never grow tired of it?
