We often hear the saying that “a purposeful life is a blissful life”. Perhaps, many of us don’t get the term and its exact meaning. Meeting your essential needs every day is not the definition of a purposeful life. Deep inside, we all realize we need more meaning in life to satisfy our hearts and the inner thirst of doing something specific. Many people spend their life in welfare work even after earning money, name, and fame. You may say it’s a missing element that makes you feel unsatisfied even if your life is comfortable the way you want it.


Recognize that potential in your heart

If you are still longing to catch that spark of your passion or meaning of life. This article will surely help you. I choose the word ‘recognize’ because our potential is always instilled deep in our hearts. We need to realize it. To make it a reality, I have listed seven solutions practiced by wise influential people and luminaries that might inspire you.


1-Carpe-Diem Spirit

“Carpe-diem” means seize the day. We all have a unique drive within ourselves that persuades us to do good things for the greater good from time to time. But, only with the help of consistent efforts and day-to-day choice, we can achieve it. This is the reason that you should suck the marrow out of life. It should be your first thought when you get up in the morning. If your enthusiasm about your purpose is contagious, success will be attracted to you.

2- Go Out of Your Comfort Zone

So many people today are gripped with fear of the future. The sense of fear often fosters a resignation to riskless living. You can’t grow out of your shell or get success if you fear every possible outcome. The first fundamental of success is to go out of your comfort zone.

3 -Patience is Key to Success

We all want those big and shiny things. But then we are reminded very painfully by our ability to produce and spend. Of course, we cannot go beyond our capacity to produce. Being ignorant here would be foolish. Work hard to constantly educate and re-educate yourself about patience. Rightly said, life is a long-term growth process. Big things need time to happen.

“Stay guided by your values, not your necessities.”— Adam Braun.

4- Stop Blaming and Persevere 

It is common that whenever we see a problem or struggle, we tend to blame the time, efforts, ourselves, or others. We tend to forget the fact that struggles, hardships, and trials are inherent to life itself and a crucial element to feeling success. Be honest with yourself, never stop learning, and keep going with determination. Blaming may provide you with temporary relief but it lands you in a pit of failure in the long run.

5- Optimize Your Optimism

When we are conditioned to believe that we are victims of our situations, we lose our drive, hope, will, and determination, which makes us settle in resignation.

Remember: you are the master of your will

Pessimism ruins your passion, and cynicism and negative thoughts hold you back. The positive driving force behind your actions yields success and makes you closer to your purposeful life.

6- Priorities Make The Image Clearer

Setting priorities is one of the essential cornerstones of living a purposeful life. You want to achieve something, then you need to prioritize your goals and actions. It makes the life image clearer to see which tasks to tackle now, or later, or totally ignore. This optimizes your energies and keeps you relaxed. Peace of mind is only achieved by a person who has developed a clear sense of priorities and lives with focus and integrity.

7- Align Your Life With Your  Higher Goal

The most crucial factor is to align your life with the goal you have explored as your life’s purpose. When you know that your life has a specific purpose, align it with your beliefs and values. Spending your time on your drive may not give you a high salary, but it sure gives you happiness.


In essence, living and discovering your purpose in life are two different things. If you have not found your purpose in life yet. Think and explore what excites you. What gives you that inner fire of joy.  A purposeful life is confounded with other elements such as meaningfulness and coherence. Yes, it’s possible to live a purposeful life, work on it, and get inspired by role models who did it. Pick your own role models.
