My Purpose

I knew I was lost for some time.  

  • I did not know how to tell anyone "no".  In fact I was a mostly a "yes" man.  
  • One of my two highest love languages at that time was probably "Acts of Affirmation".  I lived for the few moments in busy times where someone would blow my head up.  
  • I lived to make my parents happy, my family happy, and deferred my Joy.

So at 38 years old, I set out on a journey to find my Purpose.  

Here is what I found:

Putting your purpose on paper is not as easy as what everyone thinks and says.

For a whole year, I did research to figure out how to find one’s purpose. That was roughly in the year 2012. I do have to say that the Internet was a lot easier back then. It was not as cluttered with information, scams, and information overload.

  1. After distilling information from various websites, my next steps turned into an exercise to start outlining the things that I like to do.
  2. From there, my venture got me back to listing HOW I get to the point to do those things I like to do.  

In the end, my approach as compared to all the research that I was doing helped me back into a very high-level summary, which would be my purpose.

All the things I like to do, my morals, and my values would be like a manifesto that would guide how I’ve executed tactics on my top level strategy and purpose.

Before I ramble more, I’ll simply just share with you my purpose and manifesto.

Hopefully I will be able to remember more on how I got to my purpose in an upcoming post.

Here goes:
