Finding Your Life’s Purpose


Tom Corley boats - crop

When you find your life’s purpose, that thing you were meant to do, born to do, you know it. There is no doubt. You are 100% certain. If you have any doubts about whether you are pursuing a career that is your life’s purpose, you are not. Doubts are life’s way of informing you that you haven’t found your main purpose in life.

So how do you find your main purpose? Your main purpose is revealed any time you try something new and right out of the gate that new thing comes easy. Being a quick study at something or a natural at something is just life’s way of informing you that you have some unique talent. It then becomes your job to perfect that talent. When you find your unique talent, your main purpose, and pursue it for the rest of your life, the rewards are financial and emotional. You will make more money because you will want to engage in your main purpose 24/7. The more you repetitively practice any skill, the better you get and the more expert you become. The world rewards experts with higher compensation because true expertise is a rare and valuable resource.

We all have innate talents but most of us never unearth our unique talents. We get stuck in jobs that we don’t like, that make us unhappy and our paychecks or net profit reflects that. The key to finding a main purpose, a hidden talent, that can become your life’s profession is to engage in new skill-based activities. Explore various professions full time while you’re young for at most two months until you find something that comes easy. If you’re not young, your time is limited to mornings, nights and weekends. Finding your main purpose on a part-time basis will take you longer. It may take as long as six months for each new activity. If the new activity does not come easy and is actually harder for you than others, move on. You don’t have an innate talent for it. Keep experimenting with new, skill-based activities until you stumble upon something that comes easy to you. When you find your main purpose in life everything about your life will change. Happy hunting.
