Life Purpose: Are You A Human Doing, A Human Having, Or A Human Being?
By: Paul Saver
"What is my life purpose?" is a question that most of us have pondered at some point in our lives. If you take the time to cruise around the websites that are owned by successful business entrepreneurs you will notice a common refrain that goes something like this: "And you too my friend can have your cake and get to eat it as well. In other words, you can be, do and have to your heart's content"
Like a man with a mission, I give my unabashed thumbs up, to the above call to action. The dictates of my conscience tells me to fulfil my life purpose like there is no tomorrow. In other words, be, do and have to my heart's content. However, one nagging question is begging for an answer. Are the calls to be, do and have all of equal value or should I be giving some priority somewhere?
What if I get carried away with traveling the world and doing lots of cool things, and this is what is most important to me?
Or what if, I amassed lots of wealth beyond my expectations that enables me to acquire lots of the best things that money can buy, and this is what is most important to me?
What if, my monetary riches opened the door to a position of power and influence and this became a consuming passion of mine?
On the other hand, what if I decided that being the ideal person became my guiding passion and in doing so I came to befriend like minded people so that I came to experience deep and meaningful relationships on many levels and this became what was most important to me?
As I reflect on my life purpose, the more I come to realize that the intangible things in life, namely: love, trust, respect, compassion, generosity or good health are really the most important by a long shot.
As you decide to fulfil your life purpose your whole life could go pear shaped. The money you acquired could be lost in an instant. Technology could turn you into a dinosaur. Your body could give up the ghost at any moment.
However, the kind of person you become can never be taken away. Your mindset remains as your unchanging asset. Remember too, that people will truly come to love you for the quality of person that you are, not for what you have got or what you can do.
