This is a question that gets asked a lot. People make it more complicated than it needs to be. Knowing your purpose isn’t revealed by adding more to the equation; like income or accolades. It is by stripping every thing down to what you are compelled to do.
Usually we have the raw materials around us in living our purpose. For example someone who lives in a land locked area would not easily be a sea captain. It can happen but usually the Universe will be more realistic. Some of the greatest influences in sports, the arts and humanities, were introduced to their craft at a very young age.
Here is some help. Remove the fear of failing. Remove the need to make a living. Take away all diminishing thoughts of unworthiness. Take away playing it safe or having a plan B. Evaporate all the wants and hopes of your parents or spouse. Ask yourself the following questions:
What are you naturally good at?
What are you compelled to do?
What would you still do even if you were a millionaire?
Who/what do you love?
What would you be doing if you didn’t care about what others thought?
Since living our purpose is such a dynamic concept, we make it overwhelming in our minds. It is in actuality as simple as doing what we love to do and doing it without fear or interference. The more we do what we love, the more the Universe will make it part of our mainstay. It will get to the point where our purpose is really about being in a loving center and pouring that out into the world on a continuous basis.
