Find someone... anyone... who needs your help. I believe that one great purpose in life is to help others get through this world as easily as possible. Life can be difficult, and we're not given instruction manuals when we're born. But if we spend all of our time wondering what our purpose is, it is all too easy to fall into self-pity. Get outside your head for at least a little while every day. I find the best way for me to do this is to help others.
Seek and you shall find - ask and you shall receive - try to do a good deed every day and put a smile on at least one face and perhaps yours -- other than that -- welcome to my world and like me -- i need to find a life too - just as you -- good lick/love and luck in all your endeavors -- put your head up and keep on keeping on ..
Why not start a support group in your area with people who question their purpose just like you. That alone will give you an important purpose for your existence. Maybe start with a social network on line.
Ask Jesus into your heart. God made us for Himself. If you don't have Christ then you are incomplete. He completes us, He saves our souls and He gives us hope. He has offered each and every one of us salvation and purpose; all we've got to do is accept it. I never found purpose until I gave my heart and life to Christ.
every life on earth have a purpose even clouds even animals... try to find wisdom in simple things and concentrate on your work what soever and who soever comes in your life treat that well every situation every person because that is only for you and that is your purpose of life actually.. set your dreams and goals and try to achieve them too.... so a lot more u can do with a purposeful life.......
Experiment. I know that sounds broad, and it is. You just have to get out there in the world and do whatever you haven't done or do something that you'd never do. And you are probably thinking sexually, but I'm talking about much more such as spiritually, motivationally, occupationally (if that's even a word), etc. It's a terrible feeling when you're at a fork in the road and don't know whether to turn left or right. Just have a "to hell with it" attitude. Think about the present, not the past or the future. Live in the "NOW", not the "later". I hope I helped. You can't really find your calling using a search engine. You have to go out there and do it yourself. Good luck!
Google my name - Del Hendrixson - also Bajito Onda - also Tucsonweekly.com and my name - also a story called - Purpose driven life - I used to be like you - and i gave up on life because i had no purpose. I was going to kill a lot of people just so i could go back to prison where i lost myself entirely and was never able to come back from. At the second I was going to leave & kill innocent persons with an Uzi in my left hand and my right one on the doorknob I heard a voice tell me not to do it. The voice told me - You listened to man and ended up in prison – Listen to ‘me’ and see where ‘I’ lead you. I have never been back to prison - i've helped people all over the world and in turn it has led me to places I would have never been and met so many lives that were just like me - lost in this world without a purpose. Listen. Listen. - don't Look. But it was good of you to ask! Religion is not the path trust me - it is of man. I have lived in Brasil, Mexico, been to Africa, worked with gangs in dallas for many years, and now living in Tucson, Az - a great place. its been a great life.... just 'listening' and walking the vision. Blessings...
I don't know, but when you find out, please let me know. I do believe everyone does have a purpose, but we may never know it. You could have helped someone years ago and that could have been your purpose, but you might never know that. I just know that when you help someone in need out of the goodness of your heart, that is a purpose and the best way to feel good about yourself. Best of luck!

Life proposed is about chooses Good bad or indifferent After you are born you are faced with many chooses The most important chose is how you feel, Do you choose to be happy or depressed with the problems of life? Here a joke about chooses – You walk into the devil’s office The devil looks up for the desk a point to the left Where a door reads “damned if you do” then he points to the right Where a door Reads “damned if you dont” And In a commanding voice the devil says “You must choose a door!” The answer to this command is that there are always more chooses than what you see in front of you, because you can chose the door you came in. So make your chose and choose to be --------!
Does a sunflower doubt it ever being one?Does a petunia lament about its destiny? Does a dog dream and wish to be a tiger? We ARE here for a purpose and it is in our mind and soul.
Came across Astrology. Studied it to disprove it only to find Masters Degrees had been written on it; an astronomer eventually studied the science and wrote a book on its validity and famous persons around the world consulted astrologers. (Reagan, Princess Diana, rulers, kings, queens, etc.)
No accident you are here. It is environment, external temptations, wrong thinking that side tract us our original plan. religion simply states this in a different way. Forget about the blurbs in newspapers and magazines.
W are given many amazing gifts and talents ;the charts define them. There is a time for everything. It is time science and religion merge.Seek a competent, long practicing Astrologer to start. And yes, I agree with other responders; we find ourselves by giving to others. Seek what is in your heart. I fell in love with this amazing cosmic science, and my life bloomed through my practice as I have helped many.
the best way to find purpose in life is to live your life outside of yourself . By this I mean live your life for other people . you are surrounded by need in this world . Those of you who pointed this person to the church good for you . In addition I would say follow the teachings of Christ in living your life for other people . In doing so you will find true purpose and meaning in your own life . I run is small electrical service company . We help people by providing electrical services for them . It is a humble job . But when I enjoy . Don't discount the fact that during your occupation you serve other people . Just because you are getting paid does not mean that you cannot use this opportunity to serve others .
