I really believe every single one of us has a specific purpose in life, a reason why we are here. Our purpose is that thing within us that not only keeps us going every day, but it’s what drives us to be better, work harder, and do what we feel is right. It’s a feeling deep down of what we’re most passionate about and most fulfilled by. Our purposes are at the core of who we are. They’re fueled by our hopes, dreams and desires. Our purposes are the why behind everything we do. .
There’s a lot more that I don’t know than what I do know. But, something I do know is that I have a purpose. Every day I strive my very best to live my purpose. Most days I fail (to my standards). But, as I look back at my life, I can see the many ways my purpose has been fulfilled and it has fulfilled me. .
Years ago, when I played in an indie rock band - a girl came up to us and said, “your song saved my life.” She proceeded to tell us how she was contemplating suicide, but when she heard our song, it gave her hope for the future. I felt my purpose being fulfilled in that moment. .
Later on, when I served as a missionary for my Church, I was able to witness countless lives touched by the Gospel. People who I hold near to my heart. I felt my purpose being fulfilled more than ever, then. .
More recently, I married my sweetheart. It was a incredible and special moment. Now, we are raising a family - we have a son, and a baby girl on the way. We are also building businesses with the goal of helping people. I feel my purpose being fulfilled daily through this. .
Moving forward, I believe there is yet more within my life’s mission to be fulfilled. I believe I am here for a purpose and I am stoked for what the future brings. .
Remember, you are here for a reason and whatever your purpose is: find it, go for it and live it. .
