Finding the purpose

"Sometimes the people with the greatest potential often take the longest to find their path because their sensitivity is a double edged sword - it lives at the heart of their brilliance, but it also makes them more susceptible to life's pains. Good thing we aren't being penalised for handing in our purpose late. The soul doesn't know a thing about deadlines."

- Jeff Brown

Does this strike a chord with you?

Have you taken a long time to figure out your life purpose?

Were you worried that everyone around you knew what they wanted to do?

If it worries you, listen to the following song:

"Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life. The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives. Some of the most 40-year-olds I know still don't."

- Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen) by Baz Luhrmann

"You don't choose your life's purpose, you discover it. When you do, it opens up a whole new world to you."

- Sandy Gallagher 

Let me tell you something, when you discover your life purpose you wonder why you didn't discover it a long time ago.

Sandy Gallagher also says that your purpose should benefit people long after you have departed this earth.

I suppose the 'take home' from today is that you will find your purpose. It might not pop up straight away but if you keep on doing the right things, then one day your purpose will present itself. Run with it. You never know where it will take you.
