What is your life purpose?
This is a question that can scare us.
It can scare us because we know it’s important, and so it can feel heavy and difficult to face.
It can also frighten us because we know that living a life without purpose doesn’t make much sense.
Do any of us want to reach the end of our lives and, looking back, feel like we don’t know what we’ve been doing?
However, perhaps we can face the question of our life purpose more lightly and simply.
Finding an answer in 5 minutes
In this TED Talk - “How to know your life purpose in 5 minutes” - Adam Leipzig presents us with a simpler way to face this question and shows us how, with just 5 simple and quick questions, we can formulate our life purpose.
It is an amazing method for its simplicity. Following his method, we just need to answer, without thinking too much, these 5 small questions:
- - “Who are you?
- - What do you do?
- - Who do you do it for?
- - What do they want or need?
- - How do they change as a result?”
I also found his explanation of the effectiveness of this method very interesting: most of the questions are not about us but others, they force us to look outside ourselves.
It is by analyzing our relationship with others and discovering what we are passionate about that we can find our life purpose.
The first thing that comes to mind may be the simplest and at the same time the most profound answer. Try it!
“What do you do?” situations
In this video, Adam Leipzig also offers us precious help to solve those situations where we are asked: “What do you do?”.
We are often left with doubts about how to respond. We wonder what the question is intended to be, what will happen if we say this or that. The solution he offers us seems excellent - watch the video to solve this problem once and for all.
I think you will like it and that it is worth trying out.
