Find Your Purpose
The need to find purpose is not only a common topic of conversation but the foundation of people’s success in business and personal life. Many people nowadays understand that finding a purpose is important, but they still struggle with finding it. Drexwell believes that everybody has a purpose, although some people may not recognize it.
The good news is that we probably don’t need to look far for our purpose; we can find everything we need to do to fulfill it right within our reach. One way to identify your purpose is to think about the one thing you are passionate about; you go to bed every night thinking about it. This is a sign that you are onto something.
Focus on Your Passion
A lot of people would like to focus on things they enjoy and put them center-stage in their lives, but they have many other responsibilities to focus on, so they push their passions to the side. So, how do you go about not just identifying your purpose but starting to make it work for you? Drexwell says we should not put aside things we’re passionate about because these things could transform our lives.
Of course, everybody wants to make money, but this should never be the priority. Instead, everybody should be doing what they like. Too many of us work in positions we do not enjoy, so we first need to invest in what we like and take it from there. Once we do this, we often get rewarded, not only in compensation but also in making a difference in people’s lives.
Pursuing your passion may take a long time if you have a full-time job and many obligations, but you should start anyway. We keep putting things off and procrastinating, but if you do that, you will never get anywhere.
Start now, even if it means staying up in the evening and doing a second job to support your passion. This is a great strategy to give yourself a safety net before going headfirst into something you’re unsure about.
