Please don’t panic if you haven’t found your life’s purpose

In today’s hyper-connected world, it’s easy to feel like you are falling behind. Whether it’s your career status, relationship status, or social status, it’s all too common to think people are farther ahead of you.

Why can’t I seem to find my purpose…

The problem with people in this situation is that they assume their purpose will find them. As if they can wave their arms and conjure it in thin air.

Finding your purpose isn't as hard as you think

I’m working on a lot of projects at the moment. I consider being a husband and father a project, starting a business a project, taking care of my mind, body, and soul another project.

  • Millennial Type — Focused on the positives Millennials have to offer this world.
  • SHRPA — Giving others the community and accountability they need to go after their goals.
  • Being a husband and father — Wanting to help the two most important people in my life become the best versions of themselves.

How to know you’re working on the right projects

I know what some of you might be thinking, Declan, I don’t enjoy any of my “projects.” My kids are ungrateful, my job sucks, and I can’t think of anything I’m passionate about.

They are delaying gratification to do something they were meant to do.

To be honest, you’ll never know when you’re working on the right project, but that shouldn’t matter. Because your purpose doesn’t change by what you pour yourself into, it only becomes clearer.

Don’t wait around to discover your purpose

I don’t know you dear reader and can’t promise any blanket statements to guarantee you will find your purpose.
