I recently did a presentation for my team about “working on purpose” which was one of the topics debated in our company culture ambassador summit. Just being able to do the presentation for the staff meeting was a great accomplishment for me. I overcame my fear and left my comfort zone to learn the skills of public speaking.
Why do we need to find our purpose? In order to survive in this complex and ambiguous world, we need a motivation to make our lives meaningful. Regardless our age or status, we ought to search and practice our purpose to thrive.
We each have a main purpose which is to grow and give. It is imperative to find the time to improve ourselves daily. We must find what we are passionate about, do it with love, and share that passion with others.
I have found what I was born to do and I am improving myself every day and it brings me joy. I am also determined to keep that learning process ongoing. If we pay attention to the little details, life can teach us. We just have to open ourselves to the learning experience. Two months ago, I did not know anything about the blogging world, now I am embarking on that challenging adventure and I am so eager to learn and be better at it.
As the new year is approaching, let us grow and become a better version of ourselves. Let us take the time to share with our heart. Let us share quality time with our loved ones. Let us make a difference in the lives of those who need us. Let us be a great example. Let us spread joy and love around us. Let us live our lives purposefully.
Your adventure with blogging is surely exciting! I wish You the best in the upcoming year!
Thanks so much Diana. I wish you a wonderful and blessed new year!
Thanks so much for the motivation and the reminder. I truly believe in taking new challenges in life and pushing ourselves from the comfort zone. Have a wonderful day.
It is so rewarding to leave our comfort zone and try something new. Thank you so much for your comment.
This is so true. I was having a conversation with my mother about finding your purpose and all falls into place once you’ve found it. I’m still working to get there.
you are closer than you think. I wish you all the best.
Thank you for much for the motivation and what you said is absolutely true. Nice one
Thank you for reading my post and comment.
Every day I try to ask myself, “Are you better than yourself from yesterday?” I try to always make the answer to be yes, but I don’t always succeed. Continual improvement is the key.
Scott, thank you for your comment. I like that attitude. I feel like by doing that, you are keeping yourself accountable and will grow.
Loved this post! It’s so important to challenge ourselves to step outside our comfort zone and learn something new every day. Blogging is also something that is fairly new to me, but I’m loving the challenges and successes it brings. Best of luck to you : ) Excited to follow your journey.
Thank you so much, Stacey, we will rise from our challenges. I wish you a prosperous new year.
This is so true! Finding purpose in life took me WAY too long. But things got so much better after that!
No matter how long it took you, I am glad you’ve found your purpose, Tonya.

A fulfilling life is passion driven and a big part of that life derives from the work that you do. Thanks for your story.
Thank you for your comment, Tony. I agree with you, in order to be successful, you have to add passion and dedication to anything you decide to do.
Knowing your purpose is so important, I totally agree.
Once you know your purpose, it will give meaning to your life. Thanks for your comment.
This has definitely been on my mind recently. I’ve just recently joined the blogging world and the amount of positivity and love here is such a refreshing change of pace from my old internet haunts.
I wish you success in your blog venture Ray. May 2018 brings you success and happiness.
Good luck on your ventures in the next year. I know that once you have your purpose down, everything else seems to fall into place. When what we do is our passion, life is better.
Agree, David, once we are passionate about what we do, it’s easier to overcome any challenge. Happy New Year!
You have such a beautiful mindset! I am wishing you the best for what is to come 🙂

There are many things I think I could learn from you. I’m a new follower and I can’t wait to get started on your posts. I’m so happy your found your purpose. I wish I knew what it was I was born to do.
Soon you will find your purpose. Take it day by day, learn and give and make it a commitment. I wish you find your purpose and can’t read about it.
It’s so important to find something you are passionate about. And congrats on stepping out of your comfort zone, it’s not easy, but the most growth and learning tends to happen there!
I agree with you Stephanie, it is so rewarding when you leave your comfort zone and try something new with passion.
Reading this gives me motivation to keep on going with my blogging. Blogging at times can push you out of your comfort zone.
It sure does, Robyn. Let’s challenge ourselves and grow together in that blogging adventure. I can’t wait to read your post and at the end of 2018, let’s surprise ourselves with our progress.
GIRL YES!!!! I’m so proud of you. Pushing yourself out of your comfort zone can really be such a growing experience! I struggle with fear during public speaking but I also really enjoy the prep and the feeling when I’m done! I want to do more of it.
I know that feeling Lauren, and you said the key word, preparation. Any great achievement in life needs preparation, dedication, and love. Happy New Year.
Love this! Finding a purpose is so important to make us feel worthy and driven!
It sure is important Kim, we need a motivation to make our lives meaningful.
Purpose. It’s so true. I might make/call 2018 the year of purpose. For the last 3 years I’ve called them different things the year of ME, The Year of Recovery and now the Year of Purpose.
I love the idea the year of Me, sometimes, we focus on others and forget about ourselves. It’s good to take care of ourselves in other to better serves others.
This is a great post! It is so important to figure out your purpose, it sounds like you forged out yours!!
I do Angela, and every day is a beautiful journey of learning, growing, giving, and serving others.
God created us all with purpose in mind. My purpose has been for many years I feel to take care of those that can not care for themselves. Whether it be children or elderly I have wandered into many different ways to take care of many
What a great calling you have Angie, I wish you all the best. Serving and helping others are so fulfilling.
Purpose, vision, and passion are very important things. They help us overcome challenges, stay the course, and ultimately succeed!
I agree with you, Melissa. I try to do everything with passion and love.
This is a great post with perfect timing. I definitely need to focus on my purpose and the art of giving, too.
May 2018 be your year of purpose Brandi, there is joy in giving and serving others.
Purpose and passion was my focus in 2017 and will continue to be so in the new year.
That way I know you had a wonderful 2017 Jill. I wish you all the best for 2018.
I have been working out for my passion and purpose since last year and i want to work it out still. I want to have a good year this 2018.
I am certain you will have a wonderful 2018. I have learned to do everything with passion and enthusiasm, sometimes, the outcomes don’t turn out great, but they still bring joy.
I definitely whole heartedly believe in finding your purpose in life. I am 26 and still am struggling in that area, but I believe I will find it at some point. I do love making people happy through travel so maybe that is my purpose in life. Thank you for sharing this wonderful post.
That’s great Ariel, it takes a great heart to make people happy. Keep doing what you love.
This is such a great reminder no matter the season. I often make resolutions and then quickly forget about them. I need a check in throughout the year.
You should, Jennifer!
Do you find that your purpose has changed over the years? If so, in what ways?
Over the years, my purpose has definitely changed, NKem. As I am constantly growing and learning, so does my purpose. I could also say as my interests are shifting, the way I give and learn is also changing.
