Many people take this for granted but I believe knowing your purpose in life is the most important thing one should know. Without it, it is like driving a car without knowing where you will go. Just like what the Cheshire Cat said to Alice, “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there.”
We are not aware of this because everyday, we are busy with something. We feel we are going somewhere. If you have a full-time job, it pretty much occupies most of your time. An 8 to 5 job would also need an additional 4 hours of time. This would cover activities like taking a bath, dressing up, travel to the office and going back home. If this is your routine, you are left with roughly 2 to 3 hours a day of free time. Others would just spend this to rest because by the time they arrive home, they are exhausted.
Don’t get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with having a full-time job. I believe the reason why many people don’t know their purpose in life is because they don’t take the time off and seek for it.
If you don’t take time off to know your purpose, you will be like a spinning top, spending a lot of energy but doesn’t really go anywhere.
You will never find anything unless you seek for it.
Be smart. Disrupt your routine. Take a leave. Ask questions. Seek and you will find your purpose.
