This is the question that has perplexed mankind since the dawn of time. It also brings the corresponding questions into mind like how did we originate, who am I and why am I here? Philosophers have struggled with this and offered up their explanations and versions. Actually only you can answer these questions as you are unique in your own way.
“If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion.” Bishop T. D. Jakes addressed in my upcoming book is a quick answer (excerpt in magazine). Steve Jobs also addresses the fact that you can’t connect the dots looking forward only looking back so you have to trust in something. “There’s no greater gift you can give or receive than to honor your calling. It’s why you were born and how you become truly alive.” Oprah Winfrey.
Michael J Fox said, “I believe a purpose is something for which one is responsible; not just divinely designed.” Perhaps the best advice comes from Martha Beck “If your life is cloudy and you’re far, far off course you may have to go on faith for a while, but eventually you’ll learn that every time you trust your internal navigational system, you end up closer to your right life.” “You change your life by changing your heart.” Max Lucado.
