Does Discovering Your Soul’s Purpose Need to Be Hard?
Searching for your soul’s purpose in life may seem elusive and a daunting task. If you are feeling like something hasn’t clicked yet, ask yourself the questions below.
This morning on Facebook, I ran across this very apt quote:
“Stop trying hard, and start doing easy.” ~ Paul Piotrowski
(Thanks Paul! I loved this!)
Does discovering your soul’s purpose for this lifetime seem harder than it needs to be? Are you trying hard to do things or learn things that really do not resonate, because you think you have to? What if your true life’s purpose wasn’t work at all, or at least not to you? What one person finds hard to do can be another person’s core strength.
Many times I get the impression that we think what we are put on this Earth to accomplish in this lifetime will be hard, unpleasant, or just no fun. After all, that is what many of us have been taught since childhood.
In reality however, our soul’s purpose for this incarnation is usually something that comes so incredibly easy for us that we may totally overlook or dismiss it because it is just a part of who we are day to day.
How to Discover Your Soul Purpose
Get out a piece of paper and write down 3-5 answers for each of the following:
- What are things that others have told you that you do well? What have you been complimented on?
- What do you consider your greatest gifts and talents?
- What do you naturally excel at?
- What are some things you have really enjoyed doing, even if it has been years ago?
- If money were not an issue, what would you actually do on a day to day basis?
When you are done, take a look at what you wrote. Is there a recurring theme in what you do well?
Perhaps you are quite organized or love talking to people. For example, your life purpose may involve a lot of direct communication with others, where you have daily contact via phone or in person. It could be that you have an innate ability to analyze a situation or a desire to heal others. Perhaps you have been complimented on your cooking or are a great listener.
No Wrong Answers
The thing is, there are really no wrong answers. Are you making it harder than necessary on yourself because you might be afraid of making the wrong choice?
There is no one out there that is saying that once you choose a particular path, you have to do that path with no deviations for the rest of your life. Our days here on Earth are supposed to have variety. The things that you find easy to do are a signal of your core traits and gifts.
Use them as a starting point to hone in on what really brings you the most joy. Your life is about experimenting and experiencing those traits in many different ways. Start with your answers from the questions and begin to build and expand on them until you get a short list of 2-3 good possibilities and than start exploring.
