Many of us reach a point as some stage in our lives where we ask ourselves, “Why am I here? What is the point?” At this stage we begin searching for who we are and trying to determine our destiny, what it is that we are meant to do. Destiny can be defined as the sum total of everything that happens to a person during their lifetime, the end result or the cumulative impact of the sum of your experiences. While fate may place opportunities in our path it is up to each individual to determine their destiny by their choices.
What we desire our ultimate destiny to be should be driven by our purpose and it is our purpose that drives out actions. Our destiny is the long term direction, while our purpose gives us an immediate focus to direct our daily actions. While our ultimate destiny draws us to fulfill it, our purpose is the expression of our work toward fulfilling that destiny. Your purpose may change and evolve throughout your lifetime while your destiny will remain constant. To start achieving that feeling of fulfillment one must identify their purpose. What are you called to do right now? This will be a stepping stone toward your destiny.
