If you have been following up on this blog for a while, you would have definitely seen me urging and demanding that you guys get on your purpose. However, it dawned on me that a lot of you guys simply just don’t know what your purpose is or how you find your purpose. If you’re reading this and you know what exactly you were placed on this earth to do and you’re executing then I’m kindly asking for you to click off this blog and go on to another one, but if you’re stuck in a rut, hate your job, wasting time in college or just feel lost in general, tune into this we can help you with that. Firstly I need you guys to understand that the fact that you were placed on this earth and you’re alive and able, the Most High has a divine and profound plan for your life and a specific walk of life he wants you to follow. I also need you to understand that as men, the most alpha thing you can do is pursue your purpose diligently and relentlessly, for it brings you the most long term joy and self fulfillment when all is said and done. So if you feel like you’ve been reading all these self improvement books, working out, praying daily, eating clean or any other physically productive thing but you still see no progress, chances are your purpose is the missing puzzle piece to this equation. If you feel like you have no purpose or path in this life, worry no more, because I went ahead and compiled 5 WAYS YOU CAN DISCOVER YOUR GOD GIVEN PURPOSE. 

1. Figure out what you’re good at or what you like to do 

I’m not going to get all preachy here guys but for my aspiring alpha males, I need you guys to understand that God already embedded and equipped you with the right tools and skill sets to go out and pursue your purpose on this earth. These tools are made apparent in the form of talents and passion. Like have you ever heard something along the lines of “you were born with it!” or “this was made for you!” from some people? Yup that’s because they are right guys, that particular thing was made for you. Trust me guys, no talent or passion was acquired overtime, the most high instilled that in you since you were in prenatal stages. Just the fact that you are naturally tall and athletic, chances are God wanted you to become a professional athlete or if you have the IQ of Albert Einstein the Most High probably wanted you to have academic pursuits. God wouldn’t design a path in life for containing elements and environments that you’re genuinely not competent at on a basic level. Pay attention to the passions and talents you have or noticed when you were a kid, chances are, that’s what you were placed on this earth to do.

2. Try new things 

Some of you guys are sleeping on and sitting down on gifts and abilities that were simply meant for you, being in your comfort zone is never a good thing. In this case you are literally limiting yourself and potential by sitting inside all day and not going on new adventures and experiences. Take me for example, never in a million years would I have thought that I would’ve become a blogger as I had convinced myself that I hated writing since I’m mathematically inclined. So I thought at least, until I decided to try something different and picked up blogging. I soon realized that I was sitting on one of my hidden gifts which is the ability to teach and influence people in a positive direction, through clear and concise communication and teachings, whether it be through words or action, this was meant for me. I wouldn’t have known that had I not decided to give blogging a try. Sometimes it’s okay to get out of your comfort zone and try a new sport, learn a new subject or go on a new experience, you never know what hidden abilities or talents these activities would awaken inside of you. So yeah bro, you should go and try out for your school’s basketball team, you should read about biochemistry and you should go on that exciting outing with your mom, you never know there might just be something in these experiences that the most high tailor made for you.

3. Pray about it

This point right here should’ve came in at number one, as it is the most important and probably the most successful method you can implement to discover your God given purpose. The truth is, nobody knows your purpose or path better than the man above himself, your father, your creator, the Most High God. He knows you better than anybody else in this entire world, in fact, he knows you better than YOU, yup that’s right he knows you better than you know yourself. As I mentioned at the beginning of this reading, you were placed on this earth for a reason, God has a specific and unique plan that he created just for you! and he wants you to seek him for the answers, seek him for the guidance and seek him for the knowledge. The Bible says the Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. That is indeed the truth, God is in control, he is your shepherd and he will show you and reveal to you anything you ask him to reveal, you just have to be humble enough to get down and pray to him. Ask him for some wisdom and clarity to see exactly where he wants you to walk in this life. He has a sovereign will for each and everyone of us and as Alpha males we should make it our number one priority to seek that particular plan out, discover it and MOST importantly, walk it. Sometimes the best person to ask is the source himself.

4. Seek mentorship/advice 

There are some people who are just blessed with the wisdom and discernment to see and highlight just the type of person you are, your skills and talents and can even help you bring the best out of you too. My humble advice would always be to seek advice on what you’re good at or have the most potential in, from people who are much older and wiser than you. I know there are exceptions, but generally older individuals tend to have this ability because they have seen it all, they have experiences with many different types of individuals from all walks of life. Chances are they have seen someone or they themselves walked a similar path to the one you are on and that allows for them to be in a position to give advice on whatever it is you wish to partake in, from a place of knowledge and experience. It would only benefit you more to seek advice from people who fit this mold, especially if they are your close family members or associates, because they would’ve most likely seen your ability and potential from since you were a kid. As a youth, you tend to express yourself and show your worth and potential very openly, especially with those you love and the older folk who were around at that time would’ve noticed these things. Seeking mentorship or advice from experienced and successful individuals, who are where you aspire to be can also be a great way of realizing your purpose. If these people are in the positions you want to be in life, there lies a possibility that they have similar purposes to you and this will definitely aid in your quest towards seeking your purpose. Find a way to contact them or follow up on their stories for some incentive inspiration, this might be the trigger towards you finding your purpose.

5. Look within

Lastly, the fifth method you can practice to find your God given purpose, is to do some deep introspection. Sometimes you have to just stop and observe yourself from within, ask yourself these questions “What makes me feel happy?”, “What am I passionate about?” Or “What gives me the most self fulfillment?” most likely your purpose lies within the answers to these thought-provoking questions. I know this might be the most difficult method to implement as there are many external influences that do an excellent job at distracting you from your purpose and who you are as a person. So my advice is to practice the act of deep introspection regularly in an environment that is conducive to peaceful thinking. Try doing this when you wake up after you’re finished with praying. Take some time, it doesn’t have to be long, to examine yourself and figure out you as a person by asking yourself these triggering questions that I mentioned prior. Besides the Most High, nobody really and truly knows who you are and what you can become, except you!
