“Everyone’s life is a fairy tale written by God’s fingers.” – Hans Christian Andersen
Sometimes we might feel we have a higher purpose in life but it’s often too hard to pinpoint exactly what that might be. I’ve been there; actually, I was there for many years.
I had a great job as a technical writer for over a decade but I had this nagging feeling that there was something else that I was supposed to do with my life. I ended up quitting my job and went on an inner search to uncover what was it that I really wanted to devote my life to.
Sometimes, that’s all it takes to find our purpose in life, a leap of faith, the determination to search for our purpose, or the willingness to dare to express our talents in different ways.
I was lucky enough to end up finding many ways in which to experience my purpose, this blog being one of them. Now I truly feel I’m living a fairy tale written by God’s fingers. Do you also feel you’re living a fairy tale? How can you make it happen?
The law of dharma
The beginning of a new year is the ideal time to take the initiative to find channels to express our talents and to uncover our reason to be here. We are not here to be depressed, stuck, sad, fearful, in pain, lonely, or angry. We’re here for so much more!
“Everyone has a purpose in life… a unique gift or special talent to give to others. And when we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our own spirit, which is the ultimate goal of all goals.” – Deepak Chopra
Each one of us has a special talent and a unique way in which to express this talent that no one else has. Celebrate your uniqueness by taking the following first steps towards a purposeful life. Be in silence for a few moments before starting to connect more deeply with your inner guidance.
1. Make a list of your talents.
2. Write down what things you love to do that use these talents.
3. Ask how you can serve humanity with your unique talents.
4. Move towards your purpose by acting on your talents.
Create a path for your life
Once you uncover distinctive talents and some of the ways in which you’d love to express them, create a plan to act on it. Ask yourself the following questions:
- Where am I right now in relation to using these talents?
- How do I plan on starting or continuing to express my talents?
- How far have I gotten in terms of expressing my talents?
- What’s holding me back from expressing my talents into the world?
You may ask these questions everyday to keep yourself on track.
It’ll come to a point that when you ask yourself ‘where am I now?’ the answer becomes ‘exactly where I need to be’. You’ll also shift from ‘what’s in it for me’ to ‘how can I serve humanity’.
Use the law of pure potentiality (anything is possible) to allow yourself to explore your talents and live your dharma or purpose. Have fun with exploring your uniqueness and enjoy your path!
Do you feel you live a purposeful life? In what ways can you find more purpose in your life? In what ways can you serve humanity? I’d love to hear from you.
With you always in my heart,
