The meaning of life is to find your gift, and use it to create a meaningful impact in the world. If you haven’t found your gift yet, think of who you wanted to be as a child. Allowing yourself new experiences helps you see your unique talents more clearly. It is never too late to know how to find your gift.
God has big plans for you that you don’t even know about yet. That’s why he has given you certain gifts. Maybe you are lucky enough to have found your gifts already. But what if you haven’t discovered them yet?
How to find your gift: look inward
No one on this planet is one-dimensional. God has given each of us a lot of gifts. When you were a kid, chances are you had a clear idea of who you wanted to be when you grew up. Who you wanted to become then has so much to say about your gifts.
Children tend to do many things just for the experience they would gain from doing them. But as you grow up, you stop trying new things, and it becomes harder to identify what you excel at.
Things to think about to find your gifts:
- What did you want to be when you were a child?
- What excited you the most when you were young?
- What dreams did you tell yourself were “too far-fetched”?
- When was the last time you did something simply for the experience as an adult?
- What are you passionate about today?
The meaning of life is to find your gift: Find your unique talents
God has given us all gifts and wants us to use them in ways we can’t even imagine. Once you start using your talents to find your purpose and serve others, many doors start opening for you. Your gifts can never be taken away from you. They simply evolve with you.
What if you are going through adversity and feel like you’ve lost your gift as a result of that? Know that our gifts can never be stripped away from us. Even amidst the greatest adversity, the fibers of your being remain the same. Of course, you go through some changes, but you never lose your abilities as a professional.
Ultimately, your gifts are there to shine a light on others. Even if you don’t know what your gift is, think of what you loved to do as a kid. Don’t worry about the “how,” just go do it. It might turn out to be your legacy on this planet.
