Finding Your Purpose
How to choose the right path in the journey of life.
The inevitable question, whether its at a party or in a routine conversation with your parents, always pops up- "What do you want to do with your life?"
As a teenager, most of the time it's hard to answer the question on the spot. Over time, one's purpose is revealed, but this might not happen till later on in their life.
Fortunately, there are steps that you can take in order to make that purpose clearer.
It's super advantageous to find your purpose in these teenage years. Finding your purpose now is an advantage, because you have so much more time to actually do whatever the purpose is.
We asked motivation speaker, Sunil Robert, also the author of I Will Survive and Bound to Rise, to speak on how teens can discover their purpose and what steps they can take in order to live the most rewarding and fulfilling life possible.
We hope these tips help you figure out what exactly you want to do in life, and realign your goals in order to make that happen.
