What do I wish to contribute to the world?

“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” – Mark Twain

This powerful quote by Mark Twain highlights the significance of discovering your purpose in life. The moment of understanding your “why” is transformative, offering a sense of direction, meaning, and fulfillment. It’s a call to introspection and self-discovery, encouraging each of us to go deeper into our passions, strengths, and the impact we wish to make in the world. This journey of finding out why we were born is as crucial as the gift of life itself because it shapes our decisions, influences our paths, and defines our legacy.

Suggested Action: Spend some time in quiet reflection or journaling to explore what truly brings you joy, fulfillment, and a sense of purpose. Ask yourself: What am I passionate about? What strengths do I possess that can serve others? How do I wish to leave an impact on the world around me? Allow these questions to guide you toward a deeper understanding of your purpose. Remember, it’s a journey, not a destination, so embrace the exploration with an open heart and mind.
