If you do not know your purpose, you will be busy doing nothing.

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” 
― Eleanor Roosevelt

Identifying your purpose

 In addition, these are some of the pointers that influence you in finding your purpose

For instance Socialization, what drives you, entitlement.

For instance The greater danger for most of us isn’t that our aim is too high and miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.
– Michelangelo

Socialization

For instance, your environment has a lot to do with how you view things. Socialization influences what you believe to be normal behavior.

Your biggest influence will come from your 

  1. Family
  2. School
  3. Media
  4. Friends
  5. Work 
  6. Church

For example, the family is the first place you begin to adapt to your behavior. Children really do live what they learn. 

For instance, if you tell a child to” work hard and you will be successful”; but you are lazy. The child is more likely to follow you than listen to you.

So we must teach them how to find their passion from an early age. Show them how to develop good work ethics by doing it.

And choosing the right friends can make a big difference in knowing what is your purpose in life. Friends who want to see you succeed will push you to make something of your life. Choose wisely

“You were put on this earth to achieve your greatest self, to live out your purpose, and to do it courageously.” 
― Steve Maraboli,

Whenever you have the entitlement syndrome; you will not achieve your goals in life. Because you believe that the world owes you something.

However, get this THE WORLD OWES YOU NOTHING.  Socialization plays a big role in us feeling that peoples owe us something.

Feeling entitled leads to a lot of excuses, because we are always expecting someone to present the opportunity we need. 

Find your purpose in life and KICK DOWN DOORS TO ACHIEVE IT. Work hard for what you want in life and you will be successful.
