Why is it so difficult to find your life purpose?

We make our choices and create our life path based on well-meaning guidance of parents, teachers, peers, media and society, we rarely make decisions based on who we really are or what we really want to do in life and as a result we live a life through a lens based on other people’s Ideas for us!


Yes really.

And guess where they get their ideas from?


Now do you see the problem? And to add to this mess we add superstitions and beliefs that are not even our own to the mix and BOOM disaster!!

Not letting go of ideas and beliefs that are put on us, you don’t get to recognize who you truly are, your authentic self, your values, desires and fullness of your love, generosity and empathy is also another reason that contributes to you not finding your purpose.

The truth is, your purpose comes from God. You were designed and made for a purpose, that’s your reason for living. You were made to be unique and set apart from everyone else to do what you were meant to do!


Why does it matter to find your life purpose anyway?

It matters because you do. Your happiness, fulfilment,  peace, clarity and direction, making a difference in the world and freedom depends on your living your purpose. When you find your life purpose you realize you are here for a reason and that’s enough to exist.

In this post, you will find outlined the necessary ingredients for finding and living a life of meaning & purpose, a life that is right for you, after all, YOU are unique.


1. Knowing God Has Given You a Purpose

William Barclay says, “There are two great days in a person’s life—the day we are born and the day we discover why.” Our Why is what gives us an understanding of our mission in life. You are here to serve and use your unique gifts and abilities for others. No one person is the same as the next, we all have out individual purpose and destiny in life, some will find it some won’t. Ask God for the wisdom to reveal what your purpose is like I did in my conversation with God.

Watch the video below which emphasises my points so far:



For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.  Jeremiah 29:11-13 ESV





The next 2 points reveal 3 things that God has placed withing you so you can at least have a clue about what you were truly are and what you’re meant to discover and use to live with purpose. These are your values + strengths + passions. I call these your Happy Triggers.


2. Your Values

We have talked about this before and the importance of finding out what your values are. They are the reason you do what you do and the decision you make are based on what values you are running your life. It doesn’t matter if they are not what your true values are but you live by these anyway.

What I mean is even if you have not taken the time to find out what your values are; you live by a random set anyway.

So the key is to identify your values that come from who you really are so you can begin to live your life how you truthfully want to, making decisions based on what you stand for and what you want to do not what someone else has forced told you to. Values are what keep you staying true to yourself.

3. Strengths & Passions

When you find your strengths and passions and find a way to make a living doing what you love ‘work’ is no longer work at all. You will wake up each day energized, fulfilled, satisfied and living with purpose.

To find your strengths take either of these tests:

They are free and you may be surprised at you results!


Ask other people what your strengths are or what you are good at, again you may be surprised.





4. Taking Action –Goals

Your life purpose involves taking action towards some kind of devoted cause; your WHY for doing what you devote your life to keeps you going.

Setting goals and reaching them allows you to keep moving forward with purpose. You know where you are going and you have put plans in place to ensure you get there.

In this guide, you can learn all about how to do this effectively. Actually, the guide is pretty hot and exciting to do! (+ also comes with a downloadable workbook)


In short other components include:

  • Meaningful relationships
  • Work that matters (as discussed comes from strengths/passions)
  • Elimination of fear


But let me also ask you this killer question that will give you something to think about, and even might end the search for your reason for being:

If you had all the money in the world what would you be doing? (Apart from spending it) Think about that!

This One question should bring you closer to find your life purpose.
