The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for a newer and richer experience.” Eleanor Roosevelt

life is full of challenges, problems, and also opportunities. The cycle of happiness and sorrow will continue. Economic difficulties, serious illnesses, family problems, and political unrest plague people on a daily basis. This is the law of nature. How a person faces each challenge that comes their way, however, says much about their character, who they are on the inside.

We all make mistakes. It’s not a bed of roses, and you have to work real hard at it.

So I think, we are developing our mindset accordingly and changing our behavior. Which is inspiring us to do so. So, we have to believe life is a great gift.

I would like to share some food of thoughts and experiences with you.

So what subject is in your thoughts today?

I hope you’ll be excited to know about today’s subject.

Today I would like to talk about one of the most important subjects in the journey of self-discovery and becoming a better person. Today's post is the first post of my new series “ Become A Better Version of Yourself”.

In this post, I’ll discuss what is our life purpose and how much its important for us for a happy life. Many people don’t know “ what is the mission of human life?” So, the mission of human life is;

The mission of human life is to end the miseries of material existence and attain a blissful life. We are constantly searching for happiness, but we often fail in our pursuit. We may get a glimpse of happiness, but it does not last forever. We do not want miseries, but we cannot avoid them.

Let me put it in my way.

I would like to answer the closely related question from my own personal point of view, which I will do after I address the question to you directly.

Why do we seek to find a purpose in life?

I think a lot of us tend to confuse meaning and purpose when it comes to this question. actually, It’s a hard question with no simple answer. Many times when we ask the question we’re asking, we really are asking is what is the meaning of life and purpose of life?

The purpose of life is to keep this question alive.

I have many other questions. Because I don’t know other’s personal circumstances, I can't give other the most meaningful reply to your personal situation, or suggest what might be the purpose of their life, because that is all tied up in who they are, what they have suffered, what experiences have drawn them to ask this question, why they are asking it, or suggest exact steps there might take, can take, should be willing to take to discover their own answers to these questions, because only they can do so the purpose of their life is something they need to personally investigate with care and discover!

“It’s not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something.” Winston S. Churchill

So, now that I have answered, to the best of my ability, their personal questions with questions of my own, I will answer their questions according to my own personal beliefs.

Life has a billion dimensions and purposes. Every organism on earth has a purpose and that purpose is unique to that organism. More than e seven billion people live on the earth, they are all different and each individual might have different life purposes.

All other organisms discover their purposes as soon as they’re born, except humans. Humans are not designed to discover their purposes automatically. They’re designed to use their unique, highly intelligent brains to discover their purposes. For this, they have to struggle all their lives to discover their purposes. Some people discover that purpose early. Others discover that purpose much later in life. Some people pursue what they think is their purpose only to discover later that they were fulfilling other people’s purposes.

Why do we need life's purpose?

What is its importance in our life?

Let us make one thing clear because People usually get confused about the difference between the purpose of life and life’s goal.

Can you know the difference between them?

Let me elaborate.

Purpose of life is the most controversial term and Purpose is different from life goals. Whereas a life goal is what you pursue your own passion, career, or interests, the purpose is what you were designed to do.

People have different life goals sometimes they have some common goals in their life. But when they reach their goals eventually, they feel void rather than they feel satisfied. Why do they feel void even though they attain what they want? Because they do not pursue what is essential ‘value’ in their life.

“People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.” Dalai Lama

Sometimes you discover your purpose by sheer accident. Sometimes you discover your purpose after a long struggle. Sometimes you don’t. Sometimes people spend all their lives fulfilling other people’s purposes. Sometimes people die without ever discovering their purposes.

Definiteness of purpose is the starting point of all achievement.” W. Clement Stone

We’re constantly searching for our life’s purpose whether we know it or not. We are a confused bunch. Nobody knows what they really want. we don’t know what is the purpose of life but I know this is not what I thought about my life. But the main thing is how we live our life with problems how we react and how we are living.

“The heart of human excellence often begins to beat when you discover a pursuit that absorbs you, frees you, challenges you, or gives you a sense of meaning, joy, or passion.” Terry Orlick

The True purpose of life is achieving human completion. The mind is the master. And all material things are just means and tools for living. Since the human mind is incomplete, we need to know the true purpose of life. We are living our daily lives while expecting to have a better life in the future.

“To begin to think with purpose, is to enter the ranks of those strong ones who only recognize failure as one of the pathways to attainment.” James Allen

First, we need to change the false mind to the true mind through meditation in order to become complete. If you discard your false mind, you can find Truth. When Truth exists within you and the land of Truth exists within you, you can find true happiness. It is unconditional and endless love and blessings. All the problems will be resolved automatically. You will live the best life with true wisdom.

“True happiness… is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.” Helen Keller

Here I would like to share my experiences how I found my purpose in life.

For last year, I would wake up and ask myself.

“What is my purpose?”

“What am I meant to do?”

“What is the meaning of my life?”

I was desperate to find the answers.

I started reading some philosophy and self-development books, article and I spent hours watching TedTalks and other videos on life and the meaning of it all and trying to find the answers.

And guess what?

This went on for the next few months and I didn’t find them. Until one day, I had watched one Pakistani TV serials where I learned a very important lesson that changed everything.

“No one knows what the purpose in life is. And that is what makes life beautiful. You are free. Go live your life, try to do the best you can, and discover what purpose means to you.”

At the end of the day, no one knows what the purpose in life is. No one knows why we are here, what we are meant to do, or what is the meaning of it all.

And that’s beautiful.

So life in my opinion is all about experiencing and learning.

Final Thoughts:

We’re different people with different mindsets and personalities so we have different opinions and experiences. In my opinion, The purpose of life is to grow into the best possible version of ourselves and it’s also to reduce the gap between the person you are, and the person you can become one day and do some good along the way while enjoying life. Once we discover our purpose, fulfilling it is not easy, but we have to start from somewhere.

One thing to realize is that we’re not here on earth by accident.

We’re here for a purpose, a mission…

Once we discover that purpose, we’ll be satisfied and happy and our life will never be the same again.

To do everything in your power, day in, day out, to become better, so you can do better, for yourself, people close to you, and everyone else in the world.

if you want to find the true purpose of your life,

everyone wants to be happy. Happiness is preached as the single most important goal of life.

verily good deeds do away with evil deeds.

And that is a reminder for those who remember.

Be patient with yourself. And Keep learning!!

I will be calmer, I will spread love as long as I can, I will live a spiritual life, I would do what I please no matter what and I would prove my theories.

Always start your day by renewing your intention that everything you do for yourself and your community, whether it be your acts of worship or daily chores. It all has to be merely for the sake of Allah (SWT) and Also, I ask Allah (SWT) to make my work dedicated only to him and forgiveness from Allah (SWT), if I have got anything wrong. It is He who is the Hearing, the knowing.

Finally, İ pray Allah to benefit those who read this article and others, grant me truthfulness in what I say and do, preserve my thoughts and my pen from deviation and guide me in all my affairs.

And all praise and thanks are due to Allah, without Whose help and guidance nothing can be accomplished. May Allah bless and protect you and your faith Ameen.
