Are your courageous efforts getting you where you want to be in life? If not, maybe it’s because you lack purpose and direction.
John F. Kennedy once said, “Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.”Without these, there is no fuel behind your actions to create what you want in life.
How do you discover your purpose and direction in life?If you’re asking yourself, “What should I do with my life? What is my purpose? What am I good at?”, it helps to tap into your own knowing about what is true for you.

When you think about what you are doing every day, do you feel passionate about it, or is it merely a survival game? If you want to enjoy life and get ahead, it is essential to have a passion for the work you are doing.
What kind of things bring you passion and make you feel alive as if time doesn’t exist? Are they hobbies, favorite pastimes, some kind of work that you are a natural at?
Even if it doesn’t seem possible.
Note how you feel when you imagine yourself in each possible position in your future. Just close your eyes and imagine what each would look and feel like.
Even if you aren’t sure what that would look like in job-form.
See yourself joyfully doing this work. Feel how amazing it feels. Does it bring you a feeling of passion, purpose, and direction?
Now that you know how to find your purpose, happiness comes after.
Jennifer Krause once told Oprah that, “As long as you keep letting life ask you another question — and reveal that there is always more for you to be and do — you are unstoppable.”When you discover your life purpose and begin moving in its direction, there are unlimited possibilities that will evolve to take you beyond living your wildest dreams.
As you continue asking yourself more questions, like the ones above and tapping into your own knowing, it will keep you aligned with your true passion every step of the way and leads to a happy life.And living your dream life is soooo worth it!
