You have all likely heard the phrase “Live with purpose”. It is a noble idea and great in theory, but if you don’t know what your purpose is or which purpose you are meant to live by, then how is “it” supposed to govern your life?

Those of you who are fortunate enough to know what your life purpose is know it is an underlying force that guides you into the actions you take. It is the voice in your head that tells you which way to go when you reach a fork in the road. It is the feeling you get in your body when you know something good, or something bad is imminently unfolding.

If you are trying to identify your soul purpose or align your life more deeply with a purpose, it is wise to begin by exploring the basics. Consider why you are here as a soul living a life in the first place.


The one thing all human beings have in common is that we are here to learn and grow on the soul level. Each of us has a more specific reason for being, but as you are exploring what your reason for being is, it is helpful to remember that all purposeful roads lead back to soul growth.

If the name of the game is to grow, think about all of the skills and talents you have developed over the course of your life. These talents represent successful achievement of personal and soul growth. Pay close attention to which of these skills brings joy and satisfaction into your life.

It is especially important to periodically evaluate your progress based on the idea that you are a soul intending to grow by means of your physical existence when you are unearthing your soul purpose. Whether or not you have connected fully with the details of your specific purpose, there is benefit to asking the following questions of yourself on your journey of discovery: “Does what I am doing promote the growth of my soul? Is there something else I could choose to do that better supports my growth? Is there another course that will allow me to use the talents that bring me joy to honor my purpose?”

Thoughtful answers to these simple questions will help you gain clarity on your specific purpose and how to best incorporate it in your life.

While it may take some effort to set yourself on a course to live with purpose and honor your life to the highest degree, any efforts you make will speak to the big reason you are here; to grow.
