You could say that life is filled with unimaginable sense that we understand or create for ourrselfs. This is an epic journey from cradle to grave and we are bound to enjoy it.
There is a deep-rooted idea of purpose in every man. When people know their purpose, they possess an irresistible force. It all starts with the realization that your purpose in life is not something static – it can be changed according to your wishes. As Heraclitus said: „You never step into the same river twice, because neither river is the same nor the man.“
Check out these 15 questions you need to ask yourself in order to find the right direction in your life:
What gives me energy?
Activities that coincide with your life purpose will give you energy. On the other hand, activities that diverge will suck much of the energy. Be careful and use your energy levels as an indicator.
What inspires me?
This is a better version of the question, „What is my passion?“. Inspiration is something that everyone should enjoy. The funny thing is that you can find out what is your passion, if you realize the moments in which you are inspired.
What ideas come to me under the shower?
