Do you feel lost and unfulfilled in life despite having achieved considerable success in life? Success is different from fulfillment. The PURPOSE of life is that you GROW & CONTRIBUTE something unique. If you never contribute in a meaningful way, life is going to feel like one piece of a boring pie. Fulfillment is the spice of life. It is an art, not a science. It is an inward journey of self-awareness.
Every human being deserves a life mission/ purpose in order to feel a sense of fulfillment in life. Mission/ Purpose has nothing to do with your career so don’t get it twisted. Differentiate between MEANS and the END. Education and career are both means to the goal of the mission in life. The problem is that we pursue meaningless means and get excited for some time then burnout because we don’t have a strong WHY ( MISSION).
What you need is not another job but a strong mission. Because human beings don’t really make changes unless there is a strong reason to do so, life has a way of driving us to the realization of how empty our lives can be without a purpose. It doesn’t matter how good your job is or if you are jobless. Without a purpose, you are all in the same boat. As a matter of fact, your job can be the good that keeps you from the best.
It doesn’t matter how good your relationships are or whatever situation in life, what I am certain of is that life will cook you alive if you keep running around purposelessly.
Have you ever imagined yourself lying in bed, surrounded by your loved ones at the end of your life? Can you imagine yourself having only a few hours left to live, and it’s time to look back on your life and reminisce. Are you satisfied with how you lived your life? Or do you wish you could start over, doing things a little differently this time? Maybe there are only a few key decisions or choices you regret.
Bronnie Ware is an Australian nurse who spent several years working in palliative care, caring for patients in the last ten weeks of their lives. Out of the many conversations with the dying, she came up with a book titled The Top Five Regrets of the Dying. Where she shares on the most common regrets of the dying, and among the top ones is “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me”?
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Almost everything–all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure–these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.
Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” -Steve Jobs
