“The heart of human excellence often begins to beat when you discover a pursuit that absorbs you, frees you, challenges you, or gives you a sense of meaning, joy, or passion.” This quote by Canadian author Terry Orlick rings true to those treading on the path of finding their purpose. As per Gino Fracchiolla, “when you discover the purpose of your life, you cease to accept the idea of mere existence. Rather, your every move is intended to reach the zenith of your potential and to do things that are important to not just you but to others as well.”
People spend years and decades to find the true purpose of their lives; however, the idea is to get started. Gino shares three ways to take the first step on this quest and live a life that’s totally worth it:
Support a Cause
Find a cause that you want to support wholeheartedly, something that pounds your heart when you talk about it in your close circle or on social media platforms. The next thing is to volunteer. “Be it joining a non-profit organization or contributing solo towards that cause, volunteering adds meaning to your life and creates a sense of purpose,” adds Gino.
Explore a Hobby
Explore hobbies that give you a sense of fulfillment. It could be gardening, painting, working towards saving the environment, and so on. Now turn this hobby into something more fulfilling by helping others develop it. As per Gino Fracchiolla, “You’ll uncover talents that are born out of your passion and purpose for life. Besides, you would not only hone your skills but also connect with like-minded people.”
Listen to Others
We indefinitely keep doing great things without realizing the difference they’re making to others’ lives. “It’s crucial to keep our ears open to the appreciation we receive from others and analyze if we can do it for a greater good,” adds Gino Fracchiolla. So, next time someone compliments you for a skill or thanks you for your help, observe and figure out how you can take it to the next level.
