When you find your life’s purpose, that thing you were born to do, you know it. There is no doubt. You are 100% certain.
If you have any doubts about whether you are doing what you were born to do, doubt is life’s way of informing you that you haven’t found your main purpose in life.
So how do you find your main purpose?
Your main purpose is revealed to you in two ways:
- Easy – Any time you try something new and right out of the gate that new thing comes easy to you, that’s the brain’s way of notifying you of an existing innate talent.
- Passion – Any time you try something new and almost immediately you love it, that’s your brain’s way of notifying you of an existing innate talent.
Those who find an innate talent and devote their lives to becoming better at it, make significantly more money, build more wealth and are infinitely happier than those who are not doing what nature intended them to do.
Unfortunately, most never find their innate talents during their lifetime and that is one of the main reasons why they eke out a living, struggle building wealth and are unhappy.
Why don’t most find their innate talents in life?
Lack of Experimentation.
Finding an innate talent requires experimentation – you must experiment with many new things before you stumble upon an innate talent. And most people do not experiment enough with new activities during their lifetimes. They might play a few different sports when they’re young or they might join a few school-related clubs, groups or organizations, while young.
But a few is not enough.
The Process to Discovering Your Innate Talents
If you truly want to figure out what innate talents you possess, no matter your age, there’s a process:
- Make a List – Make a list of 12 activities you never tried before but think you might be interested in.
- Devote One Month – Pick one activity you think you might like and spend the next month engaging in that activity every day.
- Difficulty Grading – At the end of the month, grade how hard or easy it was for you with the new activity. 1 = Hard, 10 = Very Easy.
- Passion Grading – At the end of the month, grade how much you enjoyed engaging in the activity. 1 = Hated It. 10 = Loved It.
- Rinse & Repeat – At the beginning of every new month, pick another activity and grade it when you are done.
If, after twelve months, you do not find anything that either came easy or made your heart sing, make another list of 12 activities and repeat the process over the next twelve months.
I guarantee that if you keep at this process, you will eventually stumble upon an innate talent.
When you find an innate talent that was the easiest and that you enjoyed the most, your job, for the rest of your life, is to focus on perfecting that talent.
If you work full-time, you can do this on the side.
As you become more expert at your innate talent, you can eventually turn it into a side-gig and begin making money from your innate talent. Over time, you will make more and more money. Eventually, you will be able to quit your full-time job and devote your entire life to your innate talent.
We all have innate talents but most of us never unearth them. We get stuck in jobs that we don’t like, that make us unhappy and our paychecks or net profit reflects that.
The key to finding your main purpose, which always represents some innate talent that is unique to you, is experimentation.
Finding your innate talent and perfecting it on a part-time basis will take you longer. It may take several years. But those years are going to come and go, no matter what.
Keep experimenting with new activities until you stumble upon something that comes easy to you and/or, that you enjoy doing.
When you find your innate talent and devote yourself to perfecting it, everything about your life will change for the better.
