We exist in a vast, perplexing world, and it's easy to get disoriented in it. Can you find it difficult to make progress? Are you unsure of where you're going? Do you have a hard time deciding where to begin? If you have any questions about what you're supposed to be doing in your life? Have you ever felt that making a change is too difficult, or like you've been putting it off for just too long?

This is not the case, as I have said outright. Whatever stage of life you're at or what you've gone through, you can make a difference. All you have to do now is find out what your life goal is so you can begin enjoying the life you've always desired and deserve.

According to Jack Canfield, "I agree that each of us was born with a life intent." As a consequence, I have a question for you: Do you know what yours is? It can be difficult to work out what you're going to do with your life at times. Journaling, on the other hand, is a fantastic method for achieving clarity. If you're on a quest for self-discovery or want to find out what truly matters about your life, it's time to start journaling.

I've put together a list of seven different prompts to help you get started on your adventure.

With this list, you'll be able to accomplish the following:

  • Connect with the innate sense of awe and curiosity that children have.
  • Move over other people's opinions and thoughts.
  • Find out what one-of-a-kind presents you have to share with the world.
  • That isn't it, however.

While you work your way through these journal prompts, you'll develop a deeper picture of yourself, helping you to express your true life purpose. 

Journaling Will Assist You in Discovering Your True Purpose

Journaling will help you figure out who you are, what you want, and what you're meant to do.

Additionally, maintaining a journal can help your physical, mental, and moral well-being in a multitude of ways, such as strengthening your immune cells, reducing fatigue, and even assisting you in finding your destiny.

Writing down your thoughts and emotions will help you connect with yourself on a deeper level whether you're still feeling lost or confused. It will help you figure out who you are and what is important to you.


Writing is a healthy way to express yourself and let go of your thoughts and emotions, allowing you to be more involved in your everyday life. Instead of rushing through the motions of your day, become more aware of the surroundings so that you can recall the little things. Take the time to consider your life and the things that offer you happiness.

Spending time writing in your journal will engage your logical left brain, freeing up your right brain to construct and feel profoundly. The process of writing helps to break down mental walls, freeing your mind to focus on learning more about yourself.

So, before you start writing, make sure you're in a calm environment where you can relax and let your creativity and imagination flow freely. You may want to consider meditating before you start writing. And, no matter what happens, don't miss writing!

These prompts may be used in any order, but this one should be the first one that comes to mind. 

Make a List of All the Qualities You Value About Yourself

The bond you have with yourself is the most important one you have in your life. What some people think makes no difference. Your happiness comes from inside, so dig deep and discover what it is about yourself that you enjoy.

Since your life goal is special to you, this is an important factor when deciding it. You can't explain your passions, ambitions, or dreams depending on what other people think. You can't compare your life to that of another person because we're both special.

Self-love can be difficult to come by, but think about what you wish you liked if you're having trouble deciding what you want. This will help you release whatever internal pain you've been holding within your body. When you concentrate on defining yourself and your purpose, you'll be more focused on meeting your goals. 

My Life is Perfect When

This is a fill-in-the-blank exercise in which you must complete the sentence with a verb.

Make an attempt to complete the sentence at least ten times, but keep writing if you have anything to say!

This is your chance to let your imagination run wild. May you want to move to a different part of the country? Alternatively, maybe you can look for a job that helps you to explore the world?


Think of all that can make your life exactly as you want it to be, but bear in mind that you must be realistic.

The following are some examples:

  • My life is great when I feel loved by my family.
  • My life is complete when I am able to help someone.
  • My life is complete when I can spend time doing the things I like.

When going on this prompt, try to be as precise as possible. You would be able to imagine how you want your life to be better if you have more detail.

Once you've made a list of at least ten things, start ranking your comments to help you narrow down what's most valuable to you. The prompt that follows will help you pay attention to all of the questions you're asking yourself. 

Make a List of the Questions You're Looking for Answers

What is it in which you are intrigued or uncertain? What is it that you can't seem to take your thoughts away from? These constant questions will reveal a great deal of what you value and what makes your life meaning.

You make a conscious effort not to worry about the things that make you sad, and your mind automatically gravitates toward the things that make you happier.

Perhaps you're thinking about things like:

  • What do I do to cheer up my friends and family members?
  • Why is it that no one has the potential to lead in the workplace?
  • What are the most significant aspects of my life?
  • Is it required that I resign from my current position?

The questions in which your mind concentrates expose your subconscious desires. You will use the answers to those questions to learn more about yourself. It's also possible to benefit from looking back in time. 

When I Was Child, I Loved To

Complete this sentence as many times as it seems necessary. Don't be ashamed to reflect on your past experiences to help you find out what you want to do with your life.

Returning to things you loved as a child will help you remember what you most love and care for. Were you already holding a pencil and a piece of paper? Having your parents to help you in the kitchen? Are you working on something in the house that needs to be fixed?

As an infant, there are no social pressures to do or be something, and no responsibilities.

Simply put, you're more free-spirited and inventive. This prompt encourages you to rediscover your sense of wonder from your childhood.

Additionally, as a result of this, you would be able to exclude capital from the equation. It's difficult to picture what you'd want to do even though you weren't paying for it, but having a child's mentality makes it better when children don't have to struggle for a living!

I used to assert that I will heal my sick stuffed animals. Then, one day, I learned that my true life's purpose was to heal, something I now do on a regular basis as a Reiki Master.

Reiki is a divine therapy practice that can assist you in opening your eyes and seeing the path you need to take to live the life you were meant to live. In the next prompt, you'll consider all of the places you stand out. 

What Characteristics Do I Possess That Are Different From Others?

Every person on this planet is one-of-a-kind in some way, shape, or type. The Law of Dharma states that you should do at least one thing differently than anyone else on the planet.

Here are few more questions to keep your mind working:

  • What sets you apart from the rest of the crowd?
  • What are some of the things that you seem to be naturally good at?
  • Can you have a reputation for being the one to call when something goes wrong?

When making this list, remember to look on the bright side of stuff.

This prompt has a dual purpose

It allows you to see that you can make a difference in the world while still helping you to learn more about yourself.

When you can pinpoint what makes you special, your life starts to take on more significance.

Whatever unique qualities you possess, they are important to the world, and you should use them to fulfill your true calling.

Regardless of who you are, you are special, important, and stunning. I recognize that recognizing your positive qualities can be challenging, but the following prompt is intended to assist you in improving your self-esteem. 

What Do I Lose Myself In?

There are a few things you can do to make time feel like it's moving at a snail's rate. And then there are those times when you lose track of time and forget you've wasted the whole day doing something you want.

What activities do you find yourself so engrossed in that you lose track of time? What habits make it difficult for you to remember to eat lunch? What is it about you that has you so absorbed that nothing else appears to matter?

You could have been through a time in your life where the clock appeared to be stopped and you couldn't manage to get out fast enough, such as a poor career or a period in school. You've already seen an operation during which there never seems to be enough time! The old adage goes, "Time flies when you're having a good time!" What is it about you that makes the time seem to pass too quickly? 

How Can I Use My Knowledge and Abilities to Help Humanity?

Keep in mind that this planet is bigger than you or me, and that we are all interconnected.

Serving others is essentially self-serving. You become one with the world, one with everything that is, as you bind to your higher consciousness.


There are so many issues and injustices in the world that you have a lot of chances to make a difference. All you have to do now is find out how to get your interests and your mission together.

This is a question on which you can seek inner advice. Allow your heart to lead you until you've discovered what you're really supposed to do. Whether you want to help feed the hungry, rescue animals, or heal the sick, the passions will guide you in the right direction.
