Why am I Doing This and What’s the Purpose?
I have been undergoing some serious introspection and asking this question, “Why am I doing this?” and “What is my purpose?” These two questions have helped me put things into perspective.
Recently, I have had several Facebook friends say, “I’m done. I’m not going to be posting anymore on Facebook because …” The excuses vary but generally, it’s because of some negative feedback they received on a post they made.
I’ve read some of the posts in question, and they were right, the persons responding were rude; however, I had to ask the question, “Why did the original poster they post that? What were they hoping to accomplish with that post?”
As I was reading these posts, I realized these are good questions to ask/share with you and to pose the question, “Why are you doing what you are doing and for what purpose?” This question applies to all aspects of your life because I think you should be questioning why you so you can understand it yourself.
The process of self-improvement is a continuous development and should never end. These questions help in defining who you are and what you are hoping to accomplish. Start asking yourself these questions like,
- Why do you drive the way you do?
- What do you hope to accomplish with your parenting?
- Why are you posting that post?
- What do you hope to accomplish by making that post?
As you gain a greater understanding, you will improve your communication, connection and love for those with whom you have influence. You will be more purposeful in your actions, which will lead to a more fulfilling life with higher value.
Start implementing these two questions in your life today and see what difference it makes.
You’re amazing, believe it!
