Reading Time: 4 Minutes.  

 

Why is it that we allow confusion and frustration enter into our alignment?

 

If your life is not as passionate as you would have liked it to be, if you lack the motivation and energy for living, it is because of the lack of an underlying principle around which one’s life should be organized.

 

The process of discovering this underlying principle may be the most powerful thing you will ever do yourself, because it will give your life a direction, a purpose. It will provide you with the clarity and focus, that could awaken the unbelievable forces hidden deep inside you.

 

This article discusses the concept of life and its underlying principle. We will be going through a step by step procedure, exploring your feelings and options, and by the end of this article, you should have a fairly solid tool you could immediately employ in your life, to give it a meaningful direction.

 

There are three steps to the process of discovering the purpose of your life:

 

Understanding the Principle of Choice

Creating your Underlying Principle

Aligning your life with the Underlying Principle

 

 

Understanding the Principle of Choice

 

Norman Vincent Peale has this to say about the power of choice. “The greatest power we have is the power of choice. It is a fact, that if you have been groping under unhappiness, you can choose to be joyous, instead. And, by effort, lift yourself into joy.

 

If you tend to be fearful, you can overcome that misery by choosing to have courage. The whole trend and the quality of anyone’s life is determined by the choices that are made”.

 

Choosing is the most important activity of your mind, because by making a choice, you are proclaiming your desires to your subconscious mind.

 

Once the subconscious mind gets to know your desires, it is going to do anything to manifest them in your life. The choices you make in your life become your goal. And, if you are sincere in pursuing them, there is no reason why you should not accomplish them.

 

Indecision, on the other hand, not only creates frustration and anxiety, but can also confuse the subconscious mind about what you want. It is important that the choices you make are made by you, in accordance with your true desires, purposes and aptitude.

 

A lot us of let others make choices for us, or make our choices according to what we think is ‘correct’, even if that means that we go against our wishes. What is right for someone is may not be right for you, and the way to know this is listening to what your heart says.

 

Begin by making a list of things which interest you; things which you have always enjoyed, which make you feel better, which inspire you to surge ahead, no matter what obstacles you face.

 

Do you like doing something creative, or something artistic? Do you enjoy nature, do you like the sea? Do you enjoy helping others? Do you get pleasure out of making a difference in other people’s life?

 

What ever it is that interests you, go ahead and make a list under the following headlines:

 

Things I love to do: 

 

Pick your most important interest from the list above and answer the following:

 

What is it that I love about this thing?

 

How do I feel when I do this thing?

 

 

 

Creating Your Underlying Principle:

 

The next step is to examine the list you just made and find out if there is any recurring theme. Maybe, it is the contribution that keeps coming up, or an effect to seek or give love, or helping your parents cope with old age.

 

Whatever it is, try to identify the central them of the things you love to do, and try to put it in a short and precise statement.

 

This will be your ‘Mission Statement’. It may even be a quote by a famous person, or a philosophy that has influenced you.

 

Of course, as you grow up, this statement could evolve, but its soul will remain the same. Now, write down your Mission Statement.

 

 

 

Aligning your LIFE with the Underlying Principle:

 

The final step in this journey is to map your path to your ultimate purpose. Make the little changes in your lifestyle that would accommodate this principle in your life.

 

LIVE this principle each and every day. It might take a few days, but you will certainly feel the difference in your enthusiasm for life. If you realize that you love being amidst nature, plan out your holiday.

 

Maybe an outing with your children could be enough to realign your energy. On the other hand, you might even want to change your job, or start a new business, that is more in line with your mission.

 

Remember – “Do what you love, and money will follow”.
