We like to think that the Universe is not random and that we were placed here with some mission to accomplish before we die. We want to know that our lives held meaning and that in some small way we changed the Universe for the better. We want to be reaffirmed. Isaac Newton once said “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.” Our descendants will stand on our shoulders and carry the torch of humanity even farther than we have. But what is it that we should be doing?
Asking yourself these questions may raise your vibration, and open up an entirely new world (based on how you answer them…)
What Makes You Happy?
This is a pretty simple question though it is sometimes hard to answer. What is it that makes us happy when we do it? Does our current job make us happy? Or does it simply keep us housed and fed?
What Do You Want To Do?
Is there something you have been wanting to do but don’t think you can make it happen? Is there something else you would rather be doing? What would you do if money were no issue?
What Would You Try If You Could Not Fail?
If there was no way you could possibly screw up what would you try to do? Most of us convince ourselves that we are going to fail even before we try. We tell ourselves that something is impossible or impractical. We fail before we even try. But what if you couldn’t fail?
What Makes You Lose Track Of Time?
What is the thing you enjoy so much that the hours just fly by and you never have enough time to invest in that activity? When you enjoy something so much time ceases to exist. You lose yourself in the work. This can ultimately bring about a change in your mental, and physical worlds.
What Are You Good At?
If you are good at something wouldn’t it be a waste if you didn’t do that thing full time? What is it that seems to come easily to you? Are you a leader? A good speaker? Are you really good at math? Ask yourself what you are best at. Is there something you really excel at doing? Finding this can create the shift you’ve been looking for.
If You Died What Would You Regret Not Doing?
If you found out today that you were going to die tomorrow what would have wanted to accomplish before you died? Is there something that you feel you have left unfinished?
What Do People Ask You For Help Doing?
Maybe the thing you are really good at is in high demand. Is there something people are always asking your help with because you are so darn good at it? Maybe they are subtly telling you what it is you should be doing with your life.
What Are Your Values?
Is there a cause that aligns with your values and beliefs? Maybe you feel that something important has been overlooked by everyone else. Perhaps there is injustice in the world and you would like to change that. Maybe homelessness, poverty, inequality, famine, war, hunger, or human trafficking are things you wish you could end as you find your truest calling.
What Are You Willing To Fight For?
What do you care so much about that you are willing to expend your limited time on this earth fighting to solve or rid humanity of. Are you willing to meet the challenges and obstacles head on and overcome them with perseverance and determination?
What Are You Willing To Sacrifice For?
Are you willing to give up recreational time for a greater purpose? Personal relationships? Kids? Money? What do you feel about so passionately that you are willing to sacrifice to achieve your goals? Knowing how far you’re willing to go for what you believe in can change your whole life, and the lives of those around you.
What Is Holding Me Back?
What is it that is keeping you from following your dreams? Is it just fear? What is it that is keeping you from committing completely to achieve your life’s purpose?
How Do You Want To Be Remembered?
Most of us will live and die in obscurity and that is ok. We will not be remembered past our kids or grand-kids. But if you are remembered by society and history how do you want the collective memory of humanity to remember you? Your purpose is closely linked with how you want to be remembered. If you want to be remembered as the person who cured cancer or ended world hunger then those things should illuminate your purpose. That purpose is out there and is waiting for you to take it and run with it.
