[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Two of the most important questions you can ever ask yourself are ‘Who am I?’ and ‘What is the purpose of my life?’ Reflecting on these questions and finding answers to them is the starting point for self-awareness and the foundation of a life of self-esteem, meaning and productivity. The process of making sense of these questions is the journey of a lifetime and one which will always call you back to your true Self. Regularly reflecting on your unique design and the purpose for which you’ve been called into being will keep you focused and help you to use your life as consciously as possible.
Your life is a precious gift that should not to be taken lightly. Getting to know yourself and who you’re here to become is the main responsibility as well as the greatest privilege of your life. Remember that, no matter how many people have lived on earth before you and no matter how many will live after you, there will never again, ever, be anyone just like you. You and your life are as unique as your fingerprints.
The implications of your unique life and purpose are that only you can make your particular contribution to the world. You are perfectly designed to be who you are and to do all that you need to do. It may appear that others are smarter or quicker or louder (or whatever) than you but nobody else is better equipped than you to live your own life and to manifest your particular attributes and talents. Your life is your particular assignment and you need to use all your energy and attention to live this as best as you can.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]It therefore follows that if you get distracted by what other people are doing and copying others’ opinions and values and beliefs without thinking for yourself and deciding what is right and meaningful for you, you could miss the whole purpose of your own life.
Imitating others instead of living your own authentic life is one of the reasons that so many people feel empty, lonely, unfulfilled and purposeless. They feel they lack self-esteem because they haven’t yet understood what the ‘Self’ in ‘self-esteem’ means. By reflecting on the questions: ‘Who am I?’ and ‘What is the purpose of my life?’ you’ll be able to build a life of satisfaction, meaning and joy.
No new car or handbag or sexual conquest or expensive bottle of wine or pair of designer shoes can ever give you the sustainable joy which you’ll get from knowing your true Self and the individual purpose through which this is most faithfully expressed. Nothing else can ever match up to this or make you feel ‘right’ and happy and secure. When you know yourself and your purpose it feels like coming home because that is what it is. You’re coming home to yourself.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
