Study and replicate the lives of people who’ve known their purpose
Whom do you admire the most? You are urge to read biographies of these people and explore how they lived and what motivated them to stay on purpose when obstacles surfaced. Saul of Tarsus (later called St. Paul) letters and teachings are a great source of a major portion of the New Testaments. Taylor Caldwell wrote a definitive fictional account of St. Paul’s life called Great Lion of God, which inspires millions. You may also be touched by the purposeful manner in which St. Francis of Assisi lived his life as exemplified in the novel St. Francis, by Nikos Kazantzakis. Make it a point to use your free time to read about people who are models for purposeful living.
Act as if you’re living the life you were intended to live, even if you feel confused about this thing called purpose.
Invite into your life every day whatever it might be that makes you feel closer to God and brings you a sense of joy. View the events you consider obstacles as perfect opportunities to test your resolve and find your purpose. Treat everything from a broken fingernail to an illness to the loss of a job to a geographical move as an opportunity to get away from your familiar routine and move to purpose. By acting as if you’re on purpose and treating the hurdles as friendly reminders to trust in what you feel deeply within you, you’ll be fulfilling your own intention to be a purposeful person.
Meditate to stay on purpose.
