Our purpose in life versus our need in life.
The cool thing about our purpose in life is that it’s a much more expansive and interesting concept than need. Need is pretty limited, as it’s focused around survival. Purpose is a much broader concept than that, frees you from the limits of working on survival goals. Ideally, your purpose in life will be found within the overlap between your passion and your talents.
I find that the concept works better than the concept of need in several ways.
Here is why
This makes it pretty clear to me that knowing the why in your life is crucial. In my experience, if you don’t have a purpose in life, you’re stuck working only within the concept of need, which means that your life is only about physical and emotional survival.
However, when you know your purpose you have a new and more powerful construct for goal setting.
If you don’t yet know your purpose, it’s worthwhile to take the time to discover it, so you can get past the dull need concept and start working on some far more interesting purpose-driven goals congruent with your deepest passion and your greatest talents.
If you can't figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose.
