The meaning of life is to find your gift and the purpose is to give it away.
How often have you found yourself pondering over your existence and purpose of life?
Every individual must have asked this question about life and its overall existence. Every day when I get up in the morning, I am positive about things, which is why my quick affirmation about life is that I am good at balancing my time.
We, of all the species ever known on earth, are the most gifted. I think we have all many gifts to offer to the world. It is a primitive part of human nature to ask questions, try to make sense out of things, i.e- the ability to reason and we all humans are born with consciousness, the ability to acknowledge our own existence and the things we are gifted with.
If you go deeper into it, here’s what life is all about:
The meaning of life is to find your gift
There is something you need to invest for yourself, as you owe it to yourself and the world to find your gift. Some people are blessed with always knowing their gift, others require some soul searching time to find their gifts. Finding that one thing, which no one else has as you do, is the meaning of your life.
Your gift can change a life, fulfil a dream, inspire a new point of view or spark a new talent. Think about what you’re the best at. What is it that you think is your greatest strength. Think about how can you benefit from it. Most of us live unconsciously. The daily routine of work keeps our mind busy. There’s always the next vacation or party to look forward to. However, there are many who found their meaning, in their busy schedule.
The purpose of life is to give away your gift
Living life with an external purpose can be quite satisfying, but it’s not so straight forward to come up with a fixed purpose by which you define your life. Most people come up with a purpose just for the heck of it, and then they find out that they are not passionate about it in the first place. However, the true purpose of life, is to give away your gift to someone, who carries it forward just like you do.
In the totality of life, there is no purpose that is too small or too big. Even a street sweeper’s life has a meaning and a purpose. Even if you work in a small firm with a not-very-important job profile, yet working with full dedication, you are fulfilling a purpose of your life.
