How to find your path, calling and purpose in life?

Life is too short to do things you don't like, to sleep with a girl you don't like, and to do things you don't feel like doing. Everyone wants to find their purpose in life, realize opportunities and fulfill their innermost dreams.

In youth, we chose the place of study, work, in life, almost at random. We were advised by friends, parents or led by fate. But often we made the wrong choice, the results of which we reap 10 or more years later.

If you are unhappy, then you are definitely going to the wrong place where you want and what you deserve. You can get excellent results and become happy only when you have found your true path. But it's not that easy.

How to find your path, calling and purpose in life?

1. Draw your dream life

What should your dream life look like? Make a list of 20-30 items that highlight key points. What do you want to do, how to live and what to do? This list includes all desires: material, physical, psychological, spiritual. This is the initial sketch of your dream life.

2. Make a list of what you do not like at all

What you definitely do not want to do, how to look and what to surround? It can be your life today, in which you have an unloved and low-paid job, a gray life and the absence of a soulmate. This is what you definitely do not want to have in a year or two, if you have it now. It's time to get out of the hole!

3. Find the most important points

Choose 8-10 most important things from the list and mark them with a separate marker. What are your dreams? To what extent are dreams achievable and really desirable? Are they yours, and not just stereotyped desires only to have a lot of money?

4. Make plans

Now start analyzing and making plans for your future life. How to achieve these 10 most important points and what needs to be done to achieve this? How do you spend your free time? What should you do today, tomorrow? Make a plan for the coming months and even years.

5. Take at least one step every day

Do your actions make you closer to your dreams and goals, or maybe only delay this time? All your actions go to plus or minus dreams. When you clearly know what you want, opportunities appear. Take at least one step forward each day. This is the minimum program. But it's better to do two or three. You don't want to die before you're happy, do you?

When you find your way, you have no further doubts. Everything becomes clear, easy and understandable. Life is filled with meaning, and a smile appears on the face. On “your” path, everything always turns out easier, and you seem to soar.

Life is short not to find your way, calling and destiny…
