Have your ever asked yourself “Why am I here?” or “What is the meaning of life?” or “Who am I?” You are not alone. I began asking those questions when I was 16 years old after the sudden death of my father. My world as I knew it was changed forever and I was on a spiritual quest to find answers to those questions.

Let’s talk about purpose and why it’s so important to have one (or several) to live a happy and fulfilled life. As human beings we need to feel needed. We want to be a part of something bigger and make a difference. It’s part of our nature and our DNA. It’s why we work so well together in a society – at least for the most part.

Without a purpose we’re just drifting through the days. We don’t have the drive or ambition to work to our fullest potential. This is true for all areas of our lives, both at home and at work. Purpose energizes us and helps us focus on what we want to do. Without it, we feel lost.

Increase Your Overall Feeling of Happiness

Having a purpose and doing something regularly to fulfill it, is one of the best way to increase your overall feeling of happiness and fulfillment. Since striving to live a happier life is on the agenda of most people out there, it makes a lot of sense to spend a little time discovering what your purpose in life is and how you can begin to fulfill it.

Boost Confidence

Living with purpose also gives us a nice boost in confidence. We notice that we’re making a real difference and have an impact on those around us. It’s a great feeling and great for your self-esteem. Think back on a time when you did something worthwhile that touched others and made their life better. It doesn’t have to be a big “live purpose” thing. Even something as simple as helping a neighbor carry in groceries or explaining a math problem to your friend will work. Do you remember how good it made you feel?

That right there is why it’s important to live a life of purpose. It’s having that feeling over and over again. It’s also about being able to look back and seeing the difference your actions made.

Having a purpose and working towards it also adds structure to your day. You can plan what you want to do and what you should be doing daily to reach your goal and begin to fulfill your purpose. This type of structure can give you a feeling of peace. You don’t have to worry about figuring things out or being afraid that you’re wasting the precious life you’ve been given. Instead, your purpose acts like a beacon guiding you on your path through the days, weeks, months, and years to come.

Improved Mental Well-Being

The result is improved mental well-being.  You have a reason to get up in the morning and receive validation from the results of pursuing your purpose. As time goes by, that purpose may adjust or even change completely, and that’s ok. By simply embracing a purpose-driven life, you’ll increase your happiness and feeling of self-satisfaction. Doesn’t that make it worth a try?
