What is the purpose of your life?

 
Swami Vivekananda once said : "Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success."
If you think of any successful person (whosoever you consider as "successful"), you would realize that they all followed what Swami Vivekananda said, whether you talk of Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Thomas Edison, Bill Gates, Michael Phelps, Michael Jackson or any one else. They all focused on one thing and devoted their entire life towards fulfilling that idea or dream or passion. They focused so much on that single objective that they forgot any other ideas in life and this focus helped them become the best in their own areas.
Most of us may not have even identified that dream of our life right now, which is completely fine. There is no need to worry or panic. There is no need to even get surprised that how could you live so many years of life without chasing any single goal or dream. It is never too late. You will be lucky if you get this realization that you must have one mission of your life, and you would be luckier if you are able to actually identify one and pursue the same. 
Trust me, and i am telling you by my own experience, that it is not easy to find your mission of life. It takes time. It takes enormous efforts in most cases. It takes lot of internal thinking, discussion and debate with your own self. It takes going wide, and trying multiple things quickly in life (and perhaps failing in most of them) until you can narrow down on one thing that brings happiness and cheer to your inner self. 
How would you know whether you have found your mission of life? It will always strike through your inner voice immediately. You will not have to think twice. You will know it immediately. You will get the feeling of bliss and the satisfaction of having found that idea that you have been looking for so many years, through your unconscious mind.
And once you have that idea or dream finalized and crystallized in your mind and heart, then you will start seeing the magic. You can, then, safely divide your entire life span into two parts: "Life before your dream" and "Life after your dream". These two lives are going to be absolutely different. While earlier you were driven by circumstances, you would now be driving the circumstances and situations. This one dream will change everything within you and around you. Your family and friends will see the difference in how you talk, work, walk and behave. You will see yourself as a more confident person in every aspect of life. You would start enjoying discussing your dream with others, and also wanting to know what other people are dreaming about. You will attract things and situations in your life that would help you chase your dream.
I was blessed to have realized my mission of life at the age of 32. It took a few months to crystallize the same  and i have been pursuing that for the last 8 years. Financial Freedom was my means to go and freely pursue the ultimate mission of my life. Having achieved that, i am now a "free man" - free to think, free to decide, free to work, free to do what i truly want to do in life, free to pursue my passion without worrying about the money.
So, here you are at the crossroad of your life. You may read this article, may be you would like it as well, and then you might flip over to see what is next on Facebook or what is the next blog you should read. Few lucky ones would halt here, take a deep breath and take a decision to find a mission for their life before they move ahead. They will start working on it everyday till they are able to find one. As with other good things in life, the choice will always be in "your hands".
So, If you still haven't got that mission of your life, it is still not too late !! Go and find it, and then forget everything else....& then go and chase your dream...
Every moment of your life would be worth living only after that !!
Cheers
