How to Find Passion & Purpose 

In the quest for a fulfilling life, we often find ourselves on a journey to uncover our passion and purpose. These intertwined concepts guide us toward a life that feels meaningful and aligned with our values. But how do we find our purpose?  Where does passion intersect? In this blog post, we explore more on this on this subject. 

Finding Purpose

What impact do we want to have on the world? What brings you joy and happiness? What are the values that guide my decision-making and actions?  What skills and talents come naturally to me? What brings me the greatest joy and fulfillment in life?  Are passion and purpose the same? These are the type of reflective questions one must ask oneself. Finding purpose is a profound journey of self-discovery, where we seek to uncover the impact we want to make in the world. To find purpose, we must reflect on our values, interest, and strengths and where our unique abilities can shine. Passion and purpose are related but distinct concepts, passion being the flame and purpose the broader sense of meaning and direction in life. 

When Passion Leads The Way 

Passion is the burning flame that ignites our desires to embrace each day with purpose and enthusiasm. It’s that awesome feeling of getting fully immersed in an activity, where time seems to slip away because were so captivated by what were doing. As I’ve personally discovered passion acts as our own internal compass, pointing us towards our true purpose in life. The stronger our unwavering motivation becomes and the more we feel our deep sense of purpose while engaged, the more we know that passion is leading the way. 

Where Passion Meets Purpose

When our passion and purpose collide, remarkable things happen. One of those things is that we are inspired to take all the bold action needed to overcome any obstacles. Once you do, everything becomes attainable, driven by a deep sense of meaning. This collision of passion and purpose is what gives us the strength to pursue our dreams and make a real difference in the world.  When passion and purpose are aligned we become unstoppable. Passion and purpose are not mutually exclusive, instead, they reinforce each other. Their impact is amplified, and their enthusiasm is contagious. Passion and purpose extend to all aspects of life.

Using Life’s Events to Steer Your Path

“For I know the plans I have for you” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you, and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

Life’s events, both positive and negative can serve as guiding lights on our journey. They provide an opportunity to reflect, learn and reassess our passion and purpose. Even detours and unexpected turns can lead us to new insights and reveal new hidden passions. Embracing these experiences allows us to adjust our course and stay true to our evolving purpose.
