“Living life with a purpose” although an important concept, is easier said than done. Yes, many of us want to live to our fullest potential, but what does living a purposeful life mean to you?
In order to become a “better” you and live life with a purpose, you must look at yourself and see what values are important to you. If being kind is something you want to manifest then starting to practice random acts of kindness will bring you closer to accomplish that goal. But, random acts of kindness must start with compassion and gentleness towards yourself, first. Making a decision, followed by action, will allow you to live a purposeful / goal oriented life.
Learning to live life to your fullest potential is easier said than done, learning from your mistakes while forgiving yourself is a good start to practice self-love, kindness, and compassion. Not allowing mistakes (or rather life lessons) bring you down; better yet hold you down from reaching your fullest potential. You are in charge of your future, how you decide to navigate through your life is up to you.
To live a purposeful life, you must start by setting realistic goals for your future and what you want for yourself. Visualize what you want your life to look like and how you want to see yourself tomorrow will inadvertently allow you to take the necessary steps to achieve a life that’s full of purpose and determination.
Remember, your past is important, but it does not have to define you today, nor control your future. Set a goal today to live your life with a purpose, perseverance and drive!
