Can we really find our purpose?

The reality is that we have to do our jobs to make money to put food on the table to then continue working our jobs. Nowhere in that cycle is there time for “finding” our purpose. And even if we are able to carve out time on the weekend to pursue that side project, we’re then met with the tidal wave of anxiety surrounding working on something for no pay.

That’s why on today’s episode of the Mentorbox podcast, we are discussing how to find your purpose. When we’re deciding how to live our lives, we’re often crippled by the overwhelming amount of choices. This is the root of anxiety—knowing that you can do anything, yet you’re doing the something in front of you.

So listen to today’s episode of the Mentorbox podcast to learn how to grapple with this human condition, and pursue your passion with unrelenting focus!

“When you die, what will they say about you? What will your obituary say? What did you leave behind? Why is the world better for you having lived?”

Points to Keep In Mind

  • Become world-class at something first and the passion will follow
  • If you can’t articulate your passion, then it’s likely you don’t have one yet
  • Understand that humans are goal-oriented beings, doing whatever needs to be done next
  • Reframe your purpose to be a problem you are trying to solve
  • Ask yourself: what do you do when you don’t have to do anything?
  • Recognize that defining the problem isn’t the solution
