Ignore What Anyone Else Tells You About Your Purpose
Regardless of what anyone might say to you, the truth about your feeling purposeful is that only you can know it, and if you don’t feel it in that inner place where a burning desire resides, it isn’t your purpose. Your relatives and friends may attempt to convince you that what they feel is your destiny. They may see talents that they think will help you make a great living, or they may want you to follow in their footsteps because they think you’ll be happy doing what they’ve done for a lifetime. Your skill at mathematics or decorating or fixing electronic equipment might indicate a high aptitude for a given pursuit, but in the end, if you don’t feel it, nothing can make it resonate with you.
Your purpose is between you and your Source, and the closer you get to what that field of intention looks and acts like, the more you’ll know that you’re being purposefully guided. You might have zero measurable aptitudes and skills in a given area, yet feel inwardly drawn to doing it. Forget the aptitude test results, forgot the absence of skills or know-how, and most importantly, ignore the opinions of others and listen to your heart.
