7 Thoughts on  Life’s Purpose

I n 2006 we worked with the Social Services in Zeist. We designed a special program to bring back into the work force people that had been unemployed between 3 to10 years. People who had lost their belief that they can work.

The most profound transformations took place in the 4 days of these trainings. These people truly opened up and started realizing how big their potential is and how much more there is to life.

I’m always speechless as I watch people go through that processes and see them totally open. Knowing that they can make a difference in their lives and in the lives of others.

To transform your life – because, let’s be honest, that’s what we’re talking about here – and to achieve success in the long-term, you need to be able to comprehend the bigger picture. When you are unable to see this bigger picture, it’s difficult to determine what direction you should pursue.

Without direction and purpose, there is no point in having goals. In the end, even if you achieve such abstract goals, there remains a feeling of pointlessness… A feeling of ‘What was the ultimate purpose behind it all anyway?’

Seven thoughts on direction, transforming your life and life’s purpose…


Without a direction you are pretty much lost. Without discovering what it is that you are here to learn and do, you are like a boat without a rudder. Lacking any set direction, sailing aimlessly in a hostile sea. Totally dependant on outside circumstances, allowing each wind and wave to control your way.

Life is your stage

Shakespeare said: ‘All the world’s a stage, and all men and women are merely players.’
This is exactly what life is all about. We are actors, directors, producers and the story makers of our own life. And each one of us has chosen a specific piece of theatre to play in.

Allow your soul to grow

The purpose of this specific play called ‘life’, is to allow our soul to grow. The choice was ultimately made in a way that allows us to learn specific subjects and to teach others what we’ve learned.

The spiritual level

It is said that we are human beings searching for a spiritual experience. But what if instead, we are actually spiritual beings having a physical experience? If that is so, then on a spiritual level we chose a specific script that will allow us to learn and grow. We were born here in order to learn specific issues, which are our life-themes. And to give and teach other topics, which is our life purpose or mission.

Your life-themes

Your life-themes, naturally, require personal and spiritual growth: coming to know yourself, learning to love, becoming aware of your connectedness with others, overcoming your blockages and limitations, expressing your potential and strengths, rising beyond your Ego, becoming whole, being creative, being joyful. To name but a few…

Your life’s purpose

Like every one of us, you also have a purpose, a mission, and a unique role to play in the world – your life’s purpose. Whatever your life purpose is, it will involve making some contribution to people, other living beings, or the planet. Once you discover your life’s mission, the doors to joy and abundance will open up to you.


Finding your life’s purpose takes daring and courage as it usually involves departing from the safety of a guaranteed money income, comfortable relationships or other benefits.

If you are a regular sufferer of the ‘Monday’s Blues’, or you feel continually drained at your workplace and unsatisfied. You watch the clock all day and you envy your friends that jump out of bed to start a new day. Then you are clearly not doing your life’s work.

It’s better to invest the time to discover what your life purpose is and follow it. Otherwise, it stands to reason, you are wasting your precious talents and the time that was given to you whilst on this earth.

If you are willing to take a risk in order to follow your passion and enthusiasm, then everything will fall into place. You will find yourself in the right place at the right time. The means of making money will come quite readily – and it will all be so enjoyable that it seems effortless.

Whatever your life’s work is, it will feel natural and right. It will feel like coming home. Your work – whether paid, unpaid or voluntary – will enable you to brilliantly express your inner self.

Have a magical day!
