One of the most asked questions in life is finding purpose. Discovering where your talents and passions are is a good way to discover the answer. If that does not help, look at the reasons you feel stagnant and unfulfilled to start the process.

Basing your life and schedule watching Netflix while stuffing your face will not provide answers—period.

Sometimes you need to get off the perch and do something, anything to get out of the rut. I don’t care how old you are there will be times where you question the road you are traveling on.

Life can really suck, and to put it nicely make one feel like they are screwed.

No one is exempt, even if daddy padded your accounts. Designer shoes will take one so far, and we need to make a choice if we will rise above circumstances, and find a new purpose. Fear of opinions and failure can cripple all of us, so use it to benefit you.

I know someone who was told at as they and their parents are not making it, and were given a proposal to buy their house! That really impacted them, and they were ruled by people and afraid of failure and success. Yuck!

Guess what, they went against the grain, and used that anger to motivate them to do something positive—today they are a success.

“Resentment always hurts you more than it does the person you resent. While your offender has probably forgotten the offense and gone on with life, you continue to stew in your pain, perpetuating the past. Listen: those who hurt you in the past cannot continue to hurt you now unless you hold on to the pain through resentment, " wrote pastor Rick Warren of The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here for?

"Your past is past! Nothing will change it. You are only hurting yourself with your bitterness. For your own sake, learn from it, and then let it go."

Again, use hurts to you're advantage, let it go.

If you want to get fit, or find a new career, look into it, and do it. Who cares what people think, they are going to have judgments, regardless.

Don’t make the mistake there is only one calling or purpose. Even if you don’t now 100 percent of where you’re going, get moving. You can find many resources to help you remain motivated outside of family and friends.

Try a new course to develop a skill set, or read books on staying focused to help along the way. 

Don't become discouraged if you can’t exactly find what your purpose is, it’s a journey.
