Tune in to serious work on yourself. To find meaning in life, you need to be honest with yourself and throw away all stereotypes. What can bring satisfaction to one person will be completely insignificant to another. Therefore, do not be guided by the values accepted in society.
Imagine yourself in a few years…
5 or 10. Imagine what surrounds you, what kind of person you’ve become, what you do. What you draw in your subconscious in the first place may be the most important thing for you. Try to develop this idea and find your way of life. For example, you presented yourself as a professional in a certain field. Then you should pay attention to this sphere and develop in it. Let’s say you didn’t immediately think about your work, but introduced yourself next to your own family and children. Then pay attention to your personal life and define a goal related to this aspect.
The main condition and at the same time an undoubted advantage of this method is a free flow of thoughts. Disconnect internal criticism and release your own imagination. Prepare a piece of paper and a pen. Relax, calm down, and then quickly begin to list all that you care about, what you think is important in life. Don’t think about whether or not you are writing correctly and how viable your list is. Once the ideas are over, look at your list and find out what you think is most important in your life.
Try yourself in different roles.
Some people find their way by trial and error. You can do the same. Develop in several directions. Set different tasks. Maybe you can find your true purpose by feeling. At first glance it may seem that this method is quite primitive and ineffective, but it is not. The fact is that as soon as you distract from the fixation on finding a goal in life and start to act, your subconscious will be activated and your intuition will show you the right way.
Think about the activities that bring you true pleasure
Make a whole list of the things you like to do. Now highlight those items that benefit you or others at the same time. Maybe you should dedicate yourself to the cause, because the goal of the person should be what brings joy and grace to others.
Think about which categories are most important to you in life.
Maybe you think it’s all about making a lot of money. Then determine why you need wealth. Move so deeply into each answer and you will reach the essence of your life. Think about whether the achievement of this particular good will make you a happy man, or you need something else. It is possible to combine several aspects into one, then the overall goal of life will be a little different.
