★List of human qualities to help you find your purpose in life

There are exercises we can do to help us find our individual true purpose in life. The exercises I’ve seen require that you do some work identifying your qualities. I haven’t been able to find a really good list on the net so I am trying to create one here. If you think of more qualities please add them to this thread and I will encorporate them into the master list in this post. The idea is to find words that resonate with YOU! I think this is profoundly important, and yet as I write this I haven’t yet done the exercise. I think I am a little afraid, I think my comfort zone doesn’t like the idea of being rattled. Knowing your purpose can take away your excuse for inaction by removing the comfort zone’s weapon of second guessing. Second guessing myself has held me back for so long. It has kept me from committing to a path for fear of making a mistake or going down the wrong path. “If I take this path, what wonderful things am I gonna’ be missing out on on the other path?” It’s important to remember that you can have anything you want, but it is just as important to know that you can’t have EVERYTHING you want! We only have so much time on this planet. Identifying your purpose and what you want should allow us to eliminate many distractions that keep us from getting what we want. Knowing what your life purpose is makes it much easier to identify what you REALLY want; what your true self wants. Wants can and do change over time, but your purpose doesn’t. Evaluate your life, look over it, what have you always done? What is it you are best at? What do you like doing? When we examine our lives we get clues that will help us find our purpose.

This link takes you to another thread with an exercise that can help you find your purpose.:
