Today we have audio of Myles Munroe speaking on how to discover your purpose and activate your greatness.

How to Find Your Life Purpose: An Unconventional Approach

Let’s say you’re feeling unmotivated, unsure of yourself, aimless, can’t find your passion, directionless, not clear on what your purpose in life is.

You’re in good company — most people are in the same boat.

Now, there are about a million things online telling you how to find your passion in life, and that’s a good thing. It’s a search worth undergoing.

I’m not going to give you a fool-proof method, or a 5-step method, nor share my passion manifesto with you today.

I’m going to give you a one-step method.

However, that one step is a doozy and it will definitely help you discover your purpose.

It’s simply this: learn to get outside your personal bubble.

Your personal bubble is the small world you live in (we all have one), where you are the center of the universe. You are concerned with your wellbeing, with not wanting to look bad, with succeeding in life, with your personal pleasure (good food, good music, good sex, etc.).

This is the bubble we all live in most of the time and people who say they don’t are trying to prove something.

When someone tells you that you look fat, this only hurts because you’re in your personal bubble. You take that statement (a colleague who says you look fat) and believe that it’s about you, and feel the pain or embarrassment of how the statement affects you. It matters a lot, because in your bubble, what matters most is how everything affects you personally.

I’m the same way, and so is everyone else.

Some other problems caused by this personal bubble:

Actually, pretty much all our problems are caused by this bubble.

Including the difficulty in finding our life purpose. But more on that in a minute — I ask for your patience here, because this is important.

If we can learn to get outside this personal bubble and see things from a less self-centered approach, we can see some amazing things:

We become less self-centered and begin to have a wider view. Everything changes, from letting go of fear and anger and procrastination, to changing our habits and finding work that matters.

Once we get out of the bubble and see things with a wider view, we can start a journey along a path like this:

In this path, it doesn’t matter what specific actions you take or skills you learn to make people’s lives better. What career you choose is not important — what matters is the bigger purpose. You can always change your career and learn new skills later, as you learn other ways to fulfill this purpose. You’ll learn over time.

What matters is becoming bigger than yourself. Once you do, you learn that you have a purpose in life.

Sounds great, but getting outside this personal bubble isn’t as easy as just saying, “Let it be so.” It takes work.

First, you must see when you’re stuck in the bubble. Whenever you’re angry, frustrated, irritated, fearful, anxious, procrastinating, feeling hurt, wishing people would be different … you’re in the bubble. These are signs. You are at the center of your universe, and everything is relating to you and your feelings. When you can’t stick to habits, or have a hard time with a diet, you’re in the bubble. Your momentary pleasure is what matters in this bubble. Outside the bubble, they’re just little events (sensations of desire, urges) that can be let go of.

Second, when you notice that you’re in the bubble, expand your mind and heart. See the bigger picture. Feel what others must be feeling. Try to understand rather than condemning. See how little and petty your concerns and fears have been. Realize that if others treat you badly, it’s not about you, but about their suffering.

Third, wish others well. Genuinely want their happiness, just as you want your own happiness. See their suffering and wish for it to end or lessen.

Repeat this process multiple times a day, and you’ll get better at it.

You’ll learn to be bigger than yourself. You’ll learn that the life we’ve been given is a gift, and we must make the most of it, and not waste a second. You’ll learn that there is nothing more fulfilling than making the lives of others a little better.

These Are 5 Powerful Ways To Discover Your Life Purpose

This question plagues many at various points in their lives. It is a question that cuts to the core of a person’s being. Finding an answer seems overwhelming and induces loads of anxiety.

If you do these five things, you’ll find that although you may not find your purpose right away, you’ll feel much better while you figure things out.

This is huge. Consciously decide to take a break from having to know where your life is going and what your purpose is.

It’s OK not to know and it’s OK if it’s taking more time than you hoped to find it. Surrender yourself to the unknown and find peace in giving up the battle to know and control everything.

Many spend a lot of time searching the internet for the perfect career that will fix everything. A magic career pill that will solve their search for meaning.

The truth is, your purpose might be in something that isn’t compensated monetarily. Realizing this will broaden your horizons and greatly expand the experiences you can have.

Most of us spend our days lost in thought. If you are worried about finding your purpose, your thoughts might be plagued with regrets about the past and worries about the future.

Mindfulness exercises, like meditation and yoga, help you stay more present in the moment. When you are in the moment, finding a grand, overall purpose seems far less daunting — and less important in helping you discover your purpose!

This oft given piece of advice is harder to follow than to receive. However, the results of following your heart can be tremendous.

Without the pressures of outside expectations, you’ll be free to follow whatever passion or interest sparks life in you. And therein might lie your purpose.

It’s hard to find people to talk about these deep issues. Even with close family and friends, you might they won’t understand. However, when you start opening up, you’ll find that many share the same struggle. Finding purpose is a common endeavor to all of humanity.

You may also find that many have very helpful suggestions on how to move forward. You’re not alone in your existential crisis.
