Life Purpose - Exactly Whose Purpose Are You Living?

Your Personal Compass and a Life of Purpose

Life has targets and distractions. The clearer you are about what and where your targets are, the better shot you have at hitting them. Likewise, the sharper your awareness of any distractions in or around your life, the easier it is to avoid them.

Living a life of purpose and on purpose means forming a clear definition of your primary life target: Your Life Purpose. It’s knowing who you are, why you’re here, and what it is you’re to do with this life of yours. Your life purpose becomes your personal compass which gives your life direction, and thereby creates a purposeful life.

People who don’t know their life purpose often find themselves chasing the dreams of others, or doing what they think others think they should do. This is referred to as an inherited purpose. Such people live a life based on assumption, presumptionPsychology Articles, and old programming. These are all distractions from one’s true self; and being distracted results in an unfulfilled life full of co-dependent relationships and unsatisfactory career paths. Essentially this means you’re living according to other people’s values and purpose.

So let me ask you – are you living according to other people's values and purpose or YOUR OWN???
