PhenomenalMAG Staff  |  Mogul Mindset

One of the most difficult questions for us as humans to try to answer is what our mission in life is.

It might be challenging to know where to turn or what choices to make without a clear sense of what your life is meant to accomplish. If you don’t, you’ll end up living according to the whims of others.

Below, we'll walk you through a step-by-step approach to help you explore your options, thoughts and feelings. By the conclusion, you should have a fairly reliable tool you can use right now to help give your life a true North Star.

Finding your life's meaning involves the following three steps:

  1. Recognizing your choice principle
  2. Developing your "common thread principle"
  3. Living according to your guiding concept

Recognizing Your Choice Principle

It takes conscious effort to decide which beliefs and ideals are most important to you.

This is what Norman Vincent Peale had to say on the influence of decision: "The ability to choose is our greatest power. It is true that you can choose to be joyful instead of wallowing in unhappiness if you have been doing so. And by working hard, propel yourself towards ecstasy. If you frequently experience fear, you can end your suffering by making the decision to be courageous. The decisions made determine the overall trend and the quality of anyone's life.”

Making a decision is the most significant mental act you can perform since it signals your desires to your subconscious mind. The subconscious mind will do whatever it takes to fulfill your wishes once it becomes aware of them. Your objective is determined by the decisions you make in life. And there is no reason why you shouldn't succeed in achieving your goals if you are serious in your pursuit of them.

On the other side, indecision can cloud the subconscious mind's perception of what you want in addition to causing aggravation and anxiety. It's crucial that you make decisions for yourself, in line with your genuine aspirations, purposes, and talents. Many of us allow others to make decisions for us or make decisions that we believe to be "right," even if it means defying our own inclinations. The only genuine way to tell whether something is right for you or not is to listen to your heart. What may be right for someone else may not be right for you.

Make a list of your interests to get started. Include things you've always liked, things that make you feel better, and things that motivate you to push through challenges. Do you enjoy engaging in creative or artistic endeavors? Are you a fan of nature? What about the sea? Do you like to assist others? Do you enjoy having a positive impact on other people's lives?

Write down your interests, then respond to the following questions:

  • What activities do you enjoy most?
  • What is it about this activity that you adore, and why?
  • How on earth did you manage to do this for a living?

Developing Your ”Common Thread Principle”

The next step is to look through your list and see if any repeating patterns emerge. Perhaps it's your want to make a positive contribution to society, your desire to receive or give love, or your desire to support your aging parents. Find the overarching theme of the activities you enjoy doing, whatever it may be, and try to distill it into a succinct phrase. This will be your personal "Mission Statement." It might even be a renowned person's remark or a school of thought that has impacted you. Obviously, as you become older, this statement might change, but its core will always be the same. Create your mission statement now.

Living According Your Guiding Concept

Identifying your ultimate purpose and starting to make changes that will help your daily life become more in line with it are the last steps in this journey. You will be able to start living this idea out every day by making some small modifications to your way of life. It can take a few days, but if you become conscious of and deliberate about this guiding principle in your life, you will undoubtedly notice a difference in your excitement for life in general. Plan your vacation if you discover that you enjoy being outside. A trip with your friends or family can be sufficient to help you regain your vitality. If you find that you enjoy assisting individuals in need, start looking for volunteer opportunities in your neighborhood. On the other hand, you might even wish to create a more mission-aligned business or seek part-time work.
