Excerpt from "Discovering Your Life Purpose: The Journey Within"

by Oreste “Rusty” D’Aversa, CPC


Since the beginning of humankind, after man’s search for food, lodging and procreation he/she started wondering – What am I doing here? What is the purpose of my existence? Should I being doing something in particular with my life? These questions and many more have been concerning man for eons, so why should today, in this time and this place be any different?

Your journey, should you decide to accept it, is to find your life purpose. It may be challenging at times, in so many different ways, to discover your life purpose however it is within you nonetheless. And it is truly a process of discover. It is a process of discovering your real self, your true self, the self that is you in this time and in this place.

A Little Bit of Spiritual Stuff to Help You On Your Journey

Spirituality offers many benefits to our lives. Developing your spiritual life can give you a sense of purpose and guidance. People who have taken time to develop their spiritual life are also likely to better understand their personal needs.

It’s unfortunate that there is so much misconception about spirituality. Spirituality is not religion. One may be spiritual and not religious. Is it not the purpose of this article to discuss the merits of religion as the work discussed here is meant to be “in addition to and not instead of” your current religious and/or spiritual practices.

Here are two exercises that will help you connect with your spirituality. The two exercises are Prayer and Mediation. It is said that if you want to speak to God (or your Higher Power) you pray and if you want to hear the answer to those prayers you meditate.

Your Job and Your Work – What’s the Difference?

There is a clear distinction between ones “job” and “work”. A job is a task that provides you with some type of remuneration, like a pay check or other type of compensation. Your true work is what your real purpose is in life, your calling, it brings you complete satisfaction. The ultimate scenario is to have your job and your work be one.

What’s Your Passion?

What is your passion? What do you really love to do? If someone were to say to you I will pay you a very good salary/fee for your services, what would that service be? This is a very good time to start “brainstorming” with yourself and others about what you are really passionate about. Money is no object! What makes you happy! J Give this some time and sit with this.

Your True Job – Learn How to Find It!

To find your true job there are three very important subjects that must be mastered; personal networking, the proper way to write a resume and cover letters. With market conditions being highly competitive for the foreseeable future I find most people take these three topics very lightly conversely successful people take these topics extremely seriously.

Should I be an Entrepreneur?

Running your own business can be the most rewarding experience of

your life, the freedom to do whatever you want and whenever you want to do it. It can also be the worse experience of your life, consuming every aspect of your life and all your finances. Being an entrepreneur is not for everyone and not for people that are not willing to do whatever it takes. To do things they never have done before or perform uncomfortable tasks that need to be done in order to run a successful business.

Your Life Purpose Statement – Let the World Know Who You Really Are!

Your Life Purpose Statement is similar to a company’s Mission Statement in that you are telling others what is your purpose and how they can benefit by knowing and working with you.


This is not the end but the beginning, a new beginning in your life! Remember that you are not alone and that your life is getting better and better. You have wonderful unique gifts, skills and knowledge that will help you make a difference in the lives of so many people. The world is waiting for you, so don’t keep them waiting any longer. Go out there and live your life purpose and have a happy, prosperous and fulfilled life!
