The Purpose Of Life

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

To achieve your purpose in your life, your purpose has to be your own. Do not waste your time pursuing other people’s dreams. It won’t work.

No matter how hard, you must keep going. You must not give up on yourself. You must pursue your own purpose, but do not lose yourself. Do not forget why you are pursuing your dream. Because if you do not know why you are doing something, then that thing is not yours. Again, your mission in life has to be your mission. If not, why are you chasing it?

You Cannot Be All Things To All People

Hermann Hesse famously said, “A man cannot live intensely except at the cost of the self.” You cannot live your life on the road. You need to rest. Take time to reconnect with yourself. You need it. The world will continue without you. Your work will continue without you. If you want to enjoy yourself, you must stop running. You must stop being all things to all people.

Life is precious. Don’t abuse your life. You are here to live, not to exist. Until you take care of yourself, you will never have the chance to enjoy your life.
