Your mission does not have to be something huge. It does not have to end world hunger or change life as we know it. Rather, your mission is something inherent, something intimately yours. You could even say your mission is what God gifted you with, blessing your life with a probable course of action.
Your mission may be to give good advice. Your mission can be to do great makeup. There are so many options!
Yet, how do you know you’ve discovered your mission? Though there are different signs, the most obvious one is your enthusiasm.
- If you wake up early full of energy, if you just cannot wait for Monday, you can be certain you’ve discovered your life’s purpose.
- If people seek you out, asking you to do something for them quite often, that very thing may also be your mission. My friend, for instance, is a psychologist. However, people don’t reach out for advice. No. They ask her to do their hair. She’s the most talented hair stylist I’ve ever seen–and, yet, she doesn’t even realize it.
- If doing something makes you happy, if you have peak experiences, as Maslow called them, you can rest assured that’s your mission!
- If you enjoy doing it, it’s your mission.
- If you do it better and faster than others, it’s your mission.
- If you find jobs related to it, it’s your mission.
- If people appreciate you for doing it, it’s your mission.
- If people want to pay you for this, it’s your mission.
Have you discovered your mission yet? If not, reflect on your natural proclivities. Remember your childhood impulses. Recall your deepest curiosities. Understand what talents run in your family. Talents, as weird as this may be, are often genetic.
