Strengthening Sense of Purpose

     The purpose is the driving force that gives our lives meaning and keeps us motivated and engaged. It gives us a reason to persevere in the things we want to achieve. The stronger the sense of purpose we have, the higher the chance we are more likely to overcome obstacles and make positive contributions to the world around us.

     Take some time this week to consider what gives your life meaning and purpose. Consider your values, goals, and passions and how you can align your actions with them. You could also look for ways to make a difference in your community or the world at large. People with a sense of purpose work hard because of a true interest in their goal, rather than because they have to. Having a sense of purpose in life gives us the courage to overcome obstacles that may arise as we pursue our goals. As we progress through life, the sense of purpose we have from the beginning gradually changes, molding it to be better.

     Remember that a strong sense of purpose does not have to come from lofty, world-changing goals. It can also come from small, everyday actions that add meaning to your life and the lives of those around you. A strong sense of purpose can give individuals a sense of direction and motivation in life, giving us a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment in our daily activities. So, take the time this week to strengthen your sense of purpose and observe how it affects your daily life and overall well-being. Let me end the Value of the Week entitled Strengthening Sense of Purpose by leaving you a question: “What’s true about you today that would make your 8-year-old self cry?”
