The Journey (AKA Struggle) to Find Life Purpose

il_570xN.726574153_n6am

Knowing what we want for life is something human race struggle with. What do you want to study? What kind of person do you want to marry? Do you even want to marry? Do you want to have kids? What is your religion? What car do you want to buy? A house or an apartment? Mac or PC?

It may sound simple, and for some people, it really is.

But some of us have a hard time doing it.

Every year I fail at my goals. But every year I reflect about it and keep on trying to find a new approach or method that can make me more successful on that matter. But as I was making my list of goals for 2016, I asked myself if any of those things would made me feel proud and good about myself ten years later. And the answer was: very few of them.

Aside from reading X books and donating blood, nothing would have a great impact in the world, or even my life in the long term.

Then, the million dollar question comes to mind:

What do I want from life?

It really may be the million dollar question. I don’t know. You don’t know. You may be saconds away from having the greatest new idea, and making a business out of it.

I really want to do something meaningful, for me and for the world. But how do I start. Am I too old to be thinking about changing people’s lives with ideas? Am I too old to start all over again? Am I too snobbish for thinking that my life has a bigger purpose, even when I don’t know what it is?

What now? What if I never find it? Oh, I will. It’s gonna take some time and a lot of reflection and evaluation. But I surely will find it.

Have you found yours yet? If so, please share with us. If you, as I am, is just taking your first steps into the unknown, please share as well. I would LOVE to hear your insights.
