These are some of the big questions in life – the ones philosophers and religious leaders and all kinds of seekers spend their lives fasting and praying and searching the globe trying to answer.
In a way, I guess I’m one of those people. But I see those big questions as something else … they’re really asking something deeper …
And when you know your values and how to find your passion in life, and live accordingly, you actually turn those question marks into exclamation points!
Passions are what we want, while values are who we are and what we stand for. But how do you go about finding your passion and determining exactly what your values are in the first place?
To start, let’s define values. Basically, values describe what’s important to an individual. Your values are your compass. They can be ethical or moral values, political or religious values, social values, or even one of my personal favorites, aesthetic values.
Where values are who you are, passions are what you want – which makes them kind of like values on steroids. They’re the things that make you jump out of bed in the morning and keep you up way longer than you should be at night. And finding your passion also offers a big, big clue as to what makes you you.
That doesn’t mean we all think about our passions all that often. Some people think that these beautiful obsessions are “indulgent” and just go through their day doing what they think they’re supposed to in a robotic, going-through-the-motions approach to life.
Others, especially people who are feeling lost, or depressed, or down, can lose touch with these deep longings, sometimes without even realizing it. Without them, you’re missing a big part of yourself. Lose your passions, and you lose who you are. Your life force just goes away.
But what’s even more important than these very deep desires? It’s your life purpose. I believe we all have deep-seated passions in our life, but more than that we have a purpose … do you know what yours is? We weren’t put on this earth to struggle, or even just survive. We were given one unique strength, and that uniqueness IS our purpose.
But finding out why you’re here and what you’re supposed to do with your life isn’t about the finding-part, but creating your life. When you ask yourself, “What is my purpose?” you’re asking, “Who do I want to be and how can I make a difference?”
So if you feel like something’s missing in life, but you can’t put your finger on it … if you’re looking to move beyond basic survival and comfort and into making a difference while you’re here on this earth … then join our community where you’ll learn your own unique message to the world, your own natural energy … and find the purpose-infused life that you’re meant to live!
