How to Discover Purpose in Your Life and Avoid Boredom

What is true boredom?  Boredom is a familiar feeling. Feeling unsatisfied with an activity or uninterested to be active can lead to boredom. Boredom may occur when you feel energetic but have nowhere to direct your energy. It may also happen when you have difficulty focusing on a task.  If you want to avoid these feelings in your life you need to discover purpose in your life.  Purpose is the remedy to boredom.  When you have a purpose and energy you will know where to direct it.  When you have a purpose you won’t have time for inactivity you will know that what you’re doing matters to yourself and others.

Boredom is detrimental to your physical and mental health. It makes you feel unfulfilled, unhappy, and tired. It’s a fact – inactivity leads to more inaction, plus it leaves you feeling empty and miserable. The cycle becomes ongoing, and you’ve got to break its path consciously.

• If you’re feeling bored and want to get out of the slump, do something – anything! It doesn’t matter what. Just get moving. If you don’t like your chosen activity, change to something else.

Boredom and Purpose

How does boredom relate to finding your purpose? It’s simple. If you’re allowing yourself to be bored, you’re putting roadblocks in the path that will lead you to the top of your personal mountain (Purpose).  It’s essential to have a purpose because it will allow you to feel happy and give you a reason to get out of bed every day. It will keep you moving, active, and healthy.

  • Your purpose doesn’t necessarily have to be a career; it could be a hobby or a charitable cause.

It’s also important to have passion for what you’re doing. The ideal, of course, is to turn your life’s passion into a full-time career. No matter what you’re doing, if you don’t enjoy it, you constantly be looking for something else to pursue that leaves you with feelings of accomplishment and purpose.

  • Some people are able to pursue their passion during the time when they’re not functioning to make their income, because some passions may not make the best careers. For example, there are few highly paid stamp collectors.

How Do You Find Your Purpose?

How can you discover individual purpose? The answer is simple, but the process might be a challenging one. You need to open yourself to all new experiences, get out of your “rut” and do things differently. Time to ask yourself what makes you tick!

  • Exploring the world around you is a great way to discover your purpose or passion.

Whether you’re reading new books, exploring parts of your city you’ve never been to, or talking to people you’ve never met, you’ll discover new things about yourself, learn more about your surroundings, and experience new adventures.

New experiences have a lot to offer. They get you out of the same old mindset and into one where you have more passion and interest in the world. New encounters encourage you to try new things, develop new skill sets, and find out what you excel at.

• You can find purpose in the strangest places, so don’t rule out any activity. After all, if you try something and don’t like it, you don’t have to continue with it but it will still contribute to advancing you forward. 

It’s having passions, and the perseverance to pursue them, that make us stars. If you’ve been feeling like your life is empty, it’s time to fill it with some passion!
