Finding your life purpose isn’t easy. But it’s easier than you think! The key is to take advantage of the opportunities in front of you. And get out of your comfort zone.

Purpose is a word we typically associate with a clear career path and a set of responsibilities.

But finding your life purpose is about so much more than a job. It’s about finding the reason behind the work you do every day. The reason you get out of bed in the morning. It’s about finding what you were put on this Earth to do.

Here are 5 unexpected ways to find your life purpose: to move past the self-imposed barriers, push past your comfort zone, build new relationships, explore your interests, and find meaning in the work you already do!

1) Smash self-imposed barriers to smithereens

(aka Doing Something New)

You’ve probably heard the saying, “If you’re not growing, you’re dying.” This couldn’t be more true when it comes to finding your life purpose.

But the purpose is there, all the time. You must only push yourself out of your comfort zone and try new things, and this is the natural way to discover your life purpose.

Do you remember the first time you stepped outside your comfort zone?

It probably felt really scary. But it was one of the best things you ever did in hindsight.

The first time you try something new, it’s always the hardest. But with time and practice, you become more comfortable. This is how we build our skills. This is how we gain new experiences. And this is how become more confident.

We often fear the unknown. So, we stay in our comfort zones. The problem is that this keeps us from exploring new opportunities and learning new skills.

But the more we push past our comfort zones, the more we grow and the more opportunities we’ll discover.

So how do we get past our comfort zones and do something new?
