Finding purpose

What’s your purpose in life? We can see that question as fundamental to the human condition. Feeling you have a purpose in life, perhaps a meaningful job, can have a huge impact on our mental well-being. But how can you find your purpose? And how can you ensure you don’t lose sight of it through everyday distractions?


The importance of finding meaning in life


Finding purpose involves identifying the values, passions, and goals that ignite your inner fire and give meaning to your actions. It’s the driving force behind your decisions and actions, guiding you towards a life that resonates with your authentic self. Purpose is not a destination; it’s an evolving journey of self-discovery.


Challenges You May Have in Finding Purpose

  • “I want to do more of what makes me happy”
  • “What do I find important (at this point) in my life?”
  • “I feel stuck and want to make changes in my life, but where do I start?”


The Connection Between Purpose and Well-Being 

In a nutshell, purpose leads to a more fulfilling and meaningful life. Finding purpose fuels your well-being and brings depth to your experiences.


Having a clear sense of purpose provides direction and motivation, reducing feelings of aimlessness and discontent. It enhances your resilience in the face of challenges and fosters a deeper sense of fulfilment, joy, and overall well-being.
