It’s a question people have been asking since the beginning of time, “What am I here for?”
If you’ve found yourself asking this question, you’re not alone. Everyone has wondered from time to time what their purpose is and how they can tap into their purpose to live out their full potential. But it can be hard to know exactly how to figure that out.
That’s why we’re sharing three keys to finding your purpose. Just follow these three simple steps and you’ll be on your way to living a more meaningful life.
Remember Your Childhood Passions
When you’re a kid, nothing matters except for having fun. As a kid, you have zero cares in the world and you’re able to tap into the truest version of yourself.
Did you love to draw when you were little? To dig in the dirt? To climb trees with your brothers? Remembering your passions as a kid, as silly as they might seem, will help you determine what your purpose is now.
