I don't know what my purpose is as a human being, but as a Christian it is to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.

For me, it has been a long journey. With God as a friend to give all my tensions to, I found my purpose in life as a perfect daughter to my parents by topping throughout my career and setytling down with the match they found for me. Having got the dream man, I got the purpose of being a perfect wife, a perfect editor and a perfect daughter-in-law. Now that I am a mother, I feel that raising a kid is such a sweet purpose that rewards you immensely as your child smiles at you.

When I was still young I didn't actually know the purpose of my existence. I just live life according to what makes me happy. But now that I have my family, it gives me the purpose to live life to the fullest. I can say my children most specially give me the reason to strive hard, to tackle all the difficulties, to make every effort possible for them to have a better, comfortable life. I know that our life is but temporary but I am so thankful to God for giving me the chance to experience what is it like to be happy together with my ever loved family.

I guess everything on mission, vision and purpose in life can be well explained in the 7Habits of Effective People. A good book that would help you understand your existence and how to know your purpose in life. For me, I know that my purpose in life is to convince people to value education and grow by enrolling into Continuing Education after years of studies. I have influenced a lot by experiential sharing and I am so happy that people listened and valued education. Hey, Cathya! I'm not a professor, I'm just an ordinary employee :-)

I do not know my real purpose in life, is it to make mistakes and find out that was not my purpose in life? Is it to procreate and make as many children like me? Is it to make money and make many people miserable? Who knows? Cheers!!

Hi there Cathya! I can say that my purpose is to raise my son and be a good wife and friend to my husband. Another one is to give support to my loved ones. Also, to be a teacher and touch the lives of my future students.
