Make your Life have a Purpose!

Make your Life have a purpose…
Are you living your life purposefully? Are you doing what you have always wanted to do? Are you living the life you want to live? Are you making a difference in other peoples’ lives? Have you found your health happiness yet?
Sometimes it takes a life-altering event in your life to make any sense or meaning out of your life. And sometimes you need to hit rock bottom before you realize the life you are living isn’t what was intended for you to live.
This statement really hits home to me and a lot of people who have gone through really tough times along their journey. Losing weight, feeling better and being more active is just one game-changer. But what happens when out of the blue, you receive devastating news in your life that is out of your control? What do you do? how do you react? How will you get through?
A Death in the family, a “Cancer” diagnosis, an illness coming on in the middle of the night, a sick child, a divorce or break-up, anyone of these scenarios could be yours or someone you know.
Being faced with anyone of these circumstances can really make you realize how you have been living your life, and what changes you need to make to live it better.
It may not happen overnight, and it may take more than one circumstance before you wake up and realize you can do better. You can be someone worth dying for and have a purpose in your life after all.
Finding that purpose is so important on your health happiness journey.
A 2010 study published in Applied Psychology2 found that individuals with high levels of well-being—which involves having a sense of purpose along with a sense of control and a feeling like what you do is worthwhile—tend to live longer. Who doesn’t want that? There’s also research that links feeling as if you have a sense of purpose to positive health outcomes such as: fewer strokes and heart attacks, better sleep, and a lower risk of dementia and some disabilities.
So, how do you find your own purpose?
“Finding your purpose” is more than just a cliché or a dream that will never be fulfilled. It’s actually a tool for a better, happier, healthier life that too few people attempt to use.
The process requires plenty of self-reflection, listening to others, and finding where your passions lie.
Finding your purpose is not something that can be done in a few days, weeks, or months. It can be a lifelong journey, and it can only be done one step at a time.
Don’t wait for unpleasant circumstances, or bad news to happen before you find your purpose. Start today and live the life you want to live. It all starts with “YOU”, so what are “YOU” waiting for?
Go Live and find your Purpose!
