I really don't know what my purpose in life is. But I feel like I am potential to make a difference in the future. My life is idle at the moment. My work is soooo far from the course I took. My social life is inactive, I can't write, I am backed up... But still I think there will come a time that sooner I am going to be useful, important and do exactly what I always wanted.

Hello my friend clouds0327 Ji, I bring out following to boost up your morale and you may find some goal in your life. SATSANG (a) ”If you can balance /stable your mind, when people around you are in un-balanced , and at the same time blaming you”. (NO-reaction) (b) “If you have belief on yourself, when others have doubt and at the same time, you strongly oppose their belief of their doubt” (c) “If you can wait for Good/Bright days without loosing patience/getting disheartened of waiting”. (d) “Everyone around you is deceiving you , whereas you are not in any way.” (e) “ Every body hates you and you do not, at the same time, you ARE not proud to be ‘good’ and ‘wise’. (f) “ If you Can dream, but do not allow them to overpower you, and you Can ‘think’ but at the same time, do not plunge into dreams of ‘thinking”. (g) “If you can welcome ‘gains’ and ‘defeat’ OR ‘profit’ & ‘loss’ with open hearts and they do not unbalance your mind”. (h) “If you can accept your own words in twisted/mutilated /distorted form, happily by ‘fools’ and they do not involve you in their bad plans”. (i)“ If you Can bear/tolerate the ‘gains’ accomplished by you ‘raise to ashes’ , for which you took whole life to build, and at the same time you can once again order your tired hands to restart making”. (J) “ If you can take one chance to reduce your gains in your life, ‘loose’ or ‘gain’ (like a great gambler) (k)“If you can, after loosing every bit in your life, get ready fresh to obtain the same with total energy from all corners of your body and mind, without uttering a single word even”. (l)“ If you Can compel your heart, mind and limbs, when they are so tired and refuse to accept any thing, except that your ‘belief’ and ‘desire’ to order them that they have to march forward and not falling back”. (m) “ If you can roam in crowds, but do not allow your ‘thoughts’ and ’abilities’ to wander stray, and you live with emperor, but do not neglect common man “. (n) “ If you are unharmed by people loving you and people hating you”. (o)“ If you Can respect everybody within the limits, but at the same time nobody”. (p)“ IF YOU CAN REMEMBER THE UN-EXCUSED MOMENT/SECOND (time) OF YOUR LIFE, AND EXPLAIN THE REASON FOR THE SAME”. Then, the whole world belongs to you only and every thing that exists on this, at the same time you fall under the category of ‘ACTUAL HUMAN BEING ’, which is greatest achievement in the life than any thing else”.

My life goal now is to make my husband, my child, and my family happy. Because the purpose of this life, I never thought about my own happiness. I have a lot to sacrifice my feelings. I want everything changed. I want to live that makes me happy without sacrificing happiness to my husband, my child, and my family. But it was not possible. Because if my happiness materialize, there would be sacrificing their happiness.

Hmmm... I'm sure you can figure out a way to make them happy and make your self happy at the same time. But I think being able to make your loved ones happy is also happiness for you. It's just how you perceive happiness. Maybe changing your view about what happiness is.. will help.. Hope you will find your happiness soon. Good luck! Happy my lotting!

I believe that each and everyone of us does have a purpose in life. I may not know what specifically it is but I think that my purpose is just to make someone happy and the people I love, to make life enjoyable. Hey, I'm just like you. I'm getting old but I really still don't know what to do with my life. I'm also not that active socially. I'm usually just at home spending most of my time with the PC. So maybe this is our purpose. . for now.

LOL.. that's a cute purpose. I don't go out that much myself. I don't have alot of friends. Not active in any group at all. But I can say that I am also always in front of the computer, surfing the net.. surfing for just anything and learning a lot from it. I feel like I am always in the search for something useful out of it.. well, I can say probably that is also one of my purpose for now. LOL.

I think I have a purpose to help people with depression to overcome it and then make something of their lives. Ever since I got to university and started to do my degree in psychology, I have realised that the pull towards that particular profession has been getting stronger and stronger. I just want to help people. I think that everyone has something in their life that they're meant to do, but it's just a question of whether they manage to find what they're meant to do or not. If you don't think you've found it, then all you need to do is carry on searching, and live in hope of finding it someday!

Hi clouds,don't be such disappointed with yourself. Telling you the purpose in my life is just having happiness time with my family. I wanna we get together, spending the last time with my parents, bringing up our babies and so on. Sounds like a little bit simple, right? I think life is different to everybody, someone has big aspiration and willing to do big things, and someone others, like me, has simple purpose is easy to be satisfied. Identify what do you want, what do you want to be, then believe yourself, believing who you are, you will be a shining star~

thanks a lot... Yes I also believe that we do have different purpose in life, it may be simple for others but having a purpose in life doesnt mean it has to be complicated. In my case I guess maybe because there's a lot of things I am hoping in my life maybe I'm already serving my purpose but Im just not aware of it, because I am thinking and expecting of a more complicated one. Thank you because I am enlightened.

Yes, I have an apparent purpose in my life obviously - To get rich and enjoy a better life. When I started my college life, then I planned to make money online. Without my own efforts, I just want to earn a living and support my family later by making fortunes on the Internet. It is difficult to do that and I will spare no effprts to put it into practice.

In order for you to know your true purpose in life, you have to look deep within yourself. That's the only place where you'll find your purpose. Another hint is, if you don't like what you're doing with your life right now, then you're not in alignment with your purpose. It's not about the course you took in college. It's not about the plans your parents are forcing on you. It's about you, your purpose, your goal, your true absolute plan with your life. If you find that purpose, you'll find prosperity. I can assure you that.

Hi there Clouds! I think that you should get to know yourself better first to be able to identify what your "calling" is. What do you like doing the most? What makes you happy? How can you contribute to the society and the Christian community? You have to do that "search" by yourself and do not just wait. I am in my third year of college and I am hoping to be a teacher soon.

Before summer started I was so motivated to make a change in our community. I ran into a lady I knew who was going through hard times, then my kids were having problems at school learning, our church needed help, etc. I felt like a woman with a new purpose in life, then I hit rock bottom. I became lazy about going forward with my plans because I felt overwhelmed by home. I just sighed, although I wanted to make a change, I became lazy. I still feel like I can do so much if I set my mind to it. My husband came home today from visiting his mom and she told him that one day I would be someone important somewhere. Kind of shook me to think that she felt that way. I ask myself why did I get lazy? What is stopping me? I need to get my battery charged.

Hi there, The same could be said for me too.I always had great ideas which i was hesitant to express due to my shyness. However, due to a change in my lifestyle my ideas became counted to many around me. I have changed alot of people's lives over the past few years, I don't know why either, I had not expressed my ideas a longtime ago. My sister-in-law could see the potential in me for a longtime, but to me it was like she was an enemy. And it is through some of her help that I was better able to see people close to me in a different light. And the changes I have made to help people in my life are amazing!! I just didn't know such things could count for so many people.

Hi, Everyone will have a goal to achieve in their life. It same goes to me. I don't say it as a purpose,but it is best to put it as my GOAL. Having a good life and happy family is the big goal that I am going to achieve for the rest of my life. I am married and I wish to have a lovely husband and cute children at my side. Having a good life means I am in any financial difficulty. To achieve my goal,of course, I have to do my role as a wife and a mother.

Hi clouds0327 How are you doing today. Yes, I do. I know sometimes you might be confused. Me too, I mean nobody has perfect life. I dont think you should give yourself a explicit purpose. That might give you more presures. Just find out what do you want, and what do yo want to do?! That's the most important thing you should understand. When you sure about that, then make a effort to achieve your dream, your purpose. Have a nice day.

I do not know what my purpose in life is other then give glory to God. I do love to sing, and I do love to write as well as to cook. ?But others can do it much better then I can, so have no idea if those are my reasons for being here. Anyway I do not worry much about it. I feel that I have a way of talking to people, in fact, I told my friends that I would probably go and talk to an axe murderer and would not have the sense of knowing that he was one.

DEFINITELY, YES! We all have a purpose in life that's why God created us. Isn't that Life is not a bed of roses? Because if it is like that, then we will not have any problem to get strength from, hardship to keep us determined and a lot more. In your statement, maybe you're just tired because of being busy in your job. If your social life in not that good, try to "activate" it. Social life is very important. Don't be too intrapersonal, for it is not good in dealing a relationship with other people. Hang out with your friends for you to feel relaxed. :) There are so many reasons on why we're existing here on earth. Just SIT BACK & RELAX, and join the journey of your life. :)

God created us with purpose just as how He created us from His own image and likeness. Its the same as what happens in the food chain, everything that is involved in the chain has a purpose. I may not know my purpose in the society now, but i believe that i am here to take care of my family when they become old or sick. I have the purpose to utilize my full potentials by engaging in activities that are helpful and productive while i exist in this world,,, ^^

I may not be a stunning example. I've had my fair share of ups and downs. But I believe I have something positive to share in how I perceive life. As life is what we make it out to be I believe the way we look at life does affect the way we live life.

God has a purpose for everyone! We are like chips off the old Block of God. Our purpose here, is to experience life in the third dimension. God is inter-dimensional and cannot experience life in the physical dimension, so he has arranged that human beings experience this dimension for Him. You are a creator (as is God) and you create your life moment by moment as you live your physical life. Even at this moment you are creating the next moment of your life! There is Nothing you cannot create, or accomplish. The world is your canvas, and your hand is holding the brush!
