Are you still wondering what it is that you want to do when you grow up?

You might have heard that one of the most important decisions you can make is to find something that you love and to find someone to pay you for it.

Just think about how much happier this would make you, and about how many people have built a fortune by following their passion.

The question is: How can you discover what your purpose in life is so that you can get started right away?

3 Things That You Can Stop Doing to Help You Find Your Purpose in Life

1. Being Influenced by the Opinions of Others

As Napoleon Hill, the best-selling author of “Think and Grow Rich,” said: “Opinions are the cheapest commodity on Earth.”

Everyone you meet has an opinion about what you should do with your life, what is the “right” or “wrong” course of action, what’s smart and what’s stupid, what’s safe and what’s risky … blah, blah, blah.

The problem is that most of these opinions contradict one another and all of them are being given out of someone else’s frame of reference.

If you keep listening to these, you’ll always be confused, afraid or uncertain about what you want to do with your life.

If you want to decide what you really want, the person you should be speaking with is always available: you.

2. Chasing Financial Opportunities

Money is great, and anyone who says otherwise is probably going to lie about other things too.

However, if your primary motivation behind determining what you want to do with your life is earning money, there’s a very good chance that you’ll never be happy doing it.

This unhappiness will also keep you from doing it well, which will hurt your ability to earn money doing it. So if you want to live a successful and fulfilled life, you must stop only chasing after opportunities to earn.

3. Believing in the Word “Impossible”

The only thing which can ever make your dream possible is the belief that your dream is possible. Do we really need to go over the long list of people in history who achieved things that others thought were impossible?

Thomas Edison, Walt Disney, the Wright brothers, Roger Bannister, Christopher Columbus, “the red paperclip guy”
(acquired a house in a year through a series of trades which started with a red paperclip), Henry Ford, President Roosevelt …

We could go on … but the bottom line is that if you want to accomplish something, you’re only cheating yourself by believing that it’s impossible.

3 Things to Start Doing to Find Your Purpose in Life

1. Asking Yourself What You Want

Again, if you know what you really want and how to find your purpose in life, the person you should be speaking with is always available.

Starting tonight, begin writing in a journal and write down one of two questions:

  • “What are some things which I MUST do with my life before I die?”
  • “What’s the one thing I’ve always wanted to do with my life, but never have for some reason?”

You can probably think of many other questions like these, but these alone will get your subconscious mind involved in the process of determining what you want.

Yes, it will take you some time … but the sooner you get started, the sooner you can start taking action.

2. Trying New Things Based on the Above Answers

No matter how much you ask yourself about what you really want, the real evidence will come when you start becoming actively involved in your answers.

You might end up trying a few different things before you either narrow them down to what you want, or discover a bit at a time what your heart’s desire is.

Either way, you’ll never learn just by thinking. Get physically involved in deciding what you want, and the answer will come much more quickly.

3. Looking for Needs to Fulfill

Ask yourself what you see as being the most important needs in the world, and start finding ways that you can fill them.

This is a great way to determine what is in your heart, because what you see as being the most important need will be just as much a reflection of your inner desire as it is a reality about the world around you.

Most importantly, make a copy of this article and start putting these things into practice immediately. Do it right now.
