Living a purposeful life is to understand different hardships you face, and know it’s only there to create more order, not chaos. Even though it feels like your family is about to fall apart, or you’re about to lose your job, these situations are subconsciously caused by your inner potential because you know there’s something better.
If by some chance you’re reading this right now and there are life situations which have you questioning yourself, take some time to understand yourself. You cannot determine what someone else is going to do, or the decisions they make. Worrying about the choices of others is not living a life of purpose.
Living purposefully is one of the most effortless but enjoyable experience which you can enjoy in life. When you are living life purposefully just flows. Like flowing water, you effortless adapt to any obstacle which is placed in your path. You carve out your own way for life as you pass peacefully through. There are times when things can become turbulent, and you can fall off purpose, but with a small amount of conscious effort, you can usually guide yourself back until you are living purposefully once again. It may take a little time and effort to find your purpose, but once you do so, and you choose to live your goal, the benefits are beyond measure.

There will always be something to worry about, something going on in your life which causes you to feel less about yourself. Ignore these and continue pressing towards the sun in your life.
Signs that you are living life purposefully
You build a supportive relationship:
Traditionally, we make friendships based on proximity. Social psychology shows us that we tend to have a higher fondness for those whom we spend more time with. We often build these friendships at a young age, but as we change and our lives change, these relationships fail to improve with us. As a result, we can end up spending a great deal of time with people who no longer support our growth as human beings.
2. You take responsibility:
When you are living purposefully, you do not run away from your problems. You do not blame others for what has gone wrong in your life. You accept full responsibility for the results which you achieve. When you don’t get the results you desire, You identify the changes that you can make and put a plan in place to make those changes.
3. You are authentic:
You know who you are your purpose, your values, your principles and your goals. You dedicate your life to pursuing these. When conflict arises, or difficult decisions need to be made, you do not bow to the pressures of others. You consult your own conscience, and you take what you believe to be the best course of action. One of the mottos by which I live my life is: ‘Do what you believe to be right and accept the consequences’.
4. You don’t compete:
You pursue supportive, collaborative relationships which are aimed at achieving mutual benefits. You do not feel the need to compete with others. Success in life is not about doing better than other people, It is about being the best that you can be. When you understand this, you realise that each person is unique and there is sufficient opportunity for us all to live happy, healthy and prosperous lives. Therefore there is no need for competition, comparison or jealousy.
5. You live in your values:
Values are one of your conscience’s ways of communicating with you. They set guidelines for how you might like to behave. When you act by your benefits, you will be much happier for it. When you work in conflict with your values, you will experience inner turmoil.
Living purposefully is simple living. You become so confident of who you are and what you are trying to achieve; you can make difficult decisions with consummate ease. You feel a great deal of certainty about your life, and you trust in yourself, even during the most challenging times. Living purposefully brings meaning and joy to everything that you do and a greater sense of fulfilment upon the completion of each task.
When you take the time to live your life on purpose, you find that your life is much happier. There is no reason to struggle and be unhappy. It is merely a choice, make sure to make the right one.
