“Why were put on this earth?”
To ask the question why you were put on this earth is quite odd because we all know why were placed on this earth. Your father’s sperm and your mother’s egg; and in 9 months you were brought into existence. No, no, no, I am referring to why you wake up every single day. So many people wake up in the morning, just to exist until the next day. I heard a quote once that stated if you’re living for Friday and dreading Monday, you’re not living. Then what should you be doing? It’s easy to say what you shouldn’t do. But how many people have the skills and know how to go out into the world and be who they should be.
Note that I said should be instead of what everyone else wants from you. Because what you expect from you is who you should be, but other people will tell you to do this or that. But how dare they! How dare they assume they know something about you: you strengths, your weaknesses, your skills, your intellect. They don’t know you, that’s why it’s called self-awareness. You must have a sense of self so when people make assumptions you can correct them.Yet self awareness comes with a lot of time knowing yourself. I guess it’s why I have stayed single for so long so I am not determined by way of the relationship that I am in.
But all of this still leaves questions as to what is our purpose on this earth. Well, once you understand your self worth and become aware, then you can define your purpose. And that purpose can be to educate, to learn, to feed people, to fight tyranny, to prophesied, and/or to lead. Note that I didn’t include to earn money. Understand that making an income is good for surviving in the world. But when your purpose for existence is to work, there could be some downsides to this. For instance, if you shall ever lose your job, your reason for existence diminishes as well. So your purpose has to be something outside of your career.
In the end, you have to figure out what is it you are here to do. What is sad is that most people will never find their purpose. They will live their whole lives not knowing why they were here. And that is a fear of mine. Which is why I took it upon myself to work at my purpose. Now, I have not started yet, but I know to a degree that purpose.
