What is personal life purpose?
Life without a purpose resembles biological existence driven by instinctive impulses of survival and procreation. This existence appears to be at mercy of innumerable external forces that causing it to be dwell regularly in the mental state of reaction.
Many human beings with capacity to think and being self-aware exist without a personal life purpose that gives life a psycho-spiritual dimension. Life without purpose is like a ship without a compass: it has a precious value on board, its sails are set, but the course of travel is absent and a captain doesn't know where in the vast ocean the vessel is and which direction to steer it.
Many people have tendency of unexamined approach to this life. Some live by assumption that fate is governing their lives and they have no input into the outcome. They might even believe that their personal life purpose is going to be revealed to them by the Higher Source without asking.
They usually live in reaction to choices made for them by others, mistakenly believing that it is their "lot" in life. They usually remain with de-activated personal power of responsibility and don't remember the cause for the effect they experience. Unexamined life absent of personal life purpose revolves in a circle and it keeps manifesting through various degrees of misfortune, disadvantage and suffering.
Others treat personal life purpose like sort of a fantasy that one day will come true, and passing time as if this life is a rehearsal before the real thing. There is that type of element of wishing for "real life" to begin only when all the preferred components will be assembled in order to launch it.

How To Discover Personal Life Purpose?
Finding purpose in life is an act and is not something that will appear to you with a clear label, an indicator of some predictable results or a "placement" for career. It will most likely appear in a shape of an ordinary first step, which might be frightening due to being unknown, which you would have to consciously take by faith.
Attaining purpose of life is intricately connected to your inner vision of life.
Life vision is a consciously created narrative, a blueprint for life with meaning and purpose which generates energy to pursue direction of unfolding path. Faith is the energy bridge between your heart's deepest wish and action that manifests personal life purpose.
It encompasses a whole journey of life that comprises many individual action steps, large and small, but it has a very important one — a departure. It is like taking a cross-country night trip in a car: you see only a little distance illuminated by headlights at a time. But as you move on the road you constantly see more of the road ahead of you, a next step.
Most successful individuals that are aligned with their life's purpose commonly enjoy what they are doing, whether it is a service or creativity they exchange with others.
To determine your life purpose, you need courage to listen to your heart's desire, open wide your curiosity and let your mind dwell in a positive state of possibilities arising from awareness of who you are.
Attaining purpose of life could begin with a reversal of an instinct of limiting self-absorption, an impulse of wanting and taking into decision to give service or value to others of what you already have: your knowledge, your inspiration and your passion, something you do that adds more meaning and freedom to life. Initiate the outflow of energy of your talents.
Travel with intention could be very helpful in recognition of personal life purpose. Traveling for meaning has a way of exposing deeper aspects of your inner life. When you are on the road, there is a unique chance of being removed from routine of daily busy-ness; and in silence you may begin to listen to what is really important. You can hear more clearly what your heart is yearning for.
