When You Don’t Know the Purpose of Your Life
Most of us follow other’s dreams. Some pursue their parents’ passions, some friends’, and there are some who keep switching their purpose of life in every couple of years. If you will ask to girls about their hobby, most of the girls will reply singing, dancing or cooking. If you will ask the same question to the guys, most of them will say travelling and bike riding drive them.
I wonder, there are thousands of things to do in this world, then how most of the girls and guys share so similar 3 or 5 common interests?!
Eye Opener: 5 Possible Reasons of Not Being Able to Know the Purpose of Life
Now is the time to know your own purpose of life. Identify what is stopping you from chasing your own goals.
There are 5 probable reasons that you are growing other’s dreams, not yours:
You Believe Walking in One Direction Like Sheep
Unknowingly and unfortunately you have also become a part of the Beda Move (Bhed Chaal). Remember you are an individual and have got a brain, a heart. Have confidence in yourself that if ‘you’ have chosen a direction for yourself, you have ample of strength to walk in too. Be different because yo have got different set of skills, talent and abilities than others.
You Are Not Daring Enough to Play Your Own Game
The biggest mistake that we commit in our life is- we don’t want to understand the difference between ‘being inspired’ and ‘being pursued’.
We want to play safe substantially and so follow someone else’s path who have tasted success in that field.Taking inspiration from someone is good, but if you have started copying the same and pursuing the exact path, you need to revisit your heart. Be courageous to play your own move because only this will lead to you the ultimate bliss.
Your Emotions Are Not Allowing You to See the Reality
If you are too weak emotionally, this can be your biggest weakness in life. This might be a strong reason behind not trying to know the purpose of your life. You fit in your brain from the childhood that what your parents have achieved, if you get that, you are done.
Or maybe you started walking from where your parents stopped. You are following the unfulfilled dream of your parents or grandparents to please them and make them proud. Doesn’t matter what you are capable of and in what field your talent, capacity and skills are.
Here the motto is not to oppose your beloved ones or avoiding their wills and wishes. If your skills support and you also like that stream, do go for that. But if your heart drives to somewhere else and your brain has the weight of their unfulfilled desires, you can never find peace in the war of heart and brain. Listen to your heart this time. Come out of that shell where you are weighing the weight of someone’s dream because you can’t walk long with the load of broken heart. Who knows you can do wonders and make more proud in the field of your interests.
Quote on Following Dreams: “If you are following the dreams of someone else, you are faking and fooling others and yourself.”
You are Fighting in an Uninvited War
Does the success of your cousin, friend or competitor who has been challenging you from childhood make you feel jealous and envy? Is it motivating you to follow the same path so that you can also prove yourself that you can do better than them?
If such a hidden bug is pushing you to an uninvited challenge of battle, give yourself some peace by relaxing for a sec. Brainstorm what are you doing. It is about your life which you are spoiling in pacifying your self-ego. Yes it is just the sense of ‘self’. Come on, we are not born to battle or to prove ourselves to someone else. What matter to you should be your own ‘inner being’ which suffers if we choose to live in the heat of jealous and antagonism.
You Need Some Boost and Motivation
Are you are not courageous and confident enough to walk on your own way to achieve your own dream and goals of life?
Start working on developing your self-confidence. Get some motivation from books, biographies, your own idols, parents, legends, successful personalities or from your own past. Recall your achievement of personal or professional life. It can be a small praise or complement too. Find out that source of spark that can provide you confidence and courage to lead towards the purpose of your life.
Trust me; nothing is going to work when it comes to feeling happy from soul. Only fulfilling your own dreams can give you the extreme happiness, nothing else. Do what is to be done and follow the path where your efficiency and qualities are worth.
