Go Back to Your Younger Self – Finding Your Purpose

In the pursuit for personal growth and self-discovery, we often find inspiration in the wisdom of great thinkers like Plato and the unconventional wisdom of trailblazers like Mark Zuckerberg. The quote, “We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light,” serves as our guide in this article, towards understanding our purpose.

Mark Zuckerberg, during the hyper-growth phase of Facebook, famously said us to “move fast and break things.” These words illustrate fearlessness, a spirit that we must hone as we embark on the journey to find our purpose. Yet, this journey is not about breaking external barriers; it’s about breaking through the illusions and systems created by us or by others.

The main problem we face in our quest for purpose is the mistaken understanding that it exists outside us, waiting to be discovered like a hidden treasure. We often think there’s something we need to do or find to unlock our purpose, but the truth is far simpler, yet profoundly deeper—it resides within us. Our purpose is not an outside us; it’s built inside us. To find it, we must look inward.

Consider this: if you continually seek external solutions for internal challenges, you’ll find yourself perpetually chasing after something that remains elusive. Your purpose is not “out there” in the world; it’s “in here,” within your heart, your mind, your very being.

Understanding your purpose requires a shift in perspective. Instead of asking, “What must I do to find my purpose?” ask, “Who must I become to live my purpose?” This shift invites self-reflection, self-improvement, and self-acceptance. It acknowledges that we are multi-dimensional beings—spiritual, physical, and intellectual. We possess the remarkable ability to think, to imagine, and to create.

To embark on this transformative journey, consider the three facets of your being:

Spiritual: Embrace your inner essence, your core values, and the intrinsic qualities that define you. Recognize the yearning for meaning and fulfillment that resides within.

Physical: Acknowledge the importance of your body as the vessel through which you experience life. Prioritize your health and well-being, for a healthy body provides the foundation for a purposeful life.

Intellectual: Harness the power of your mind to think critically, to dream, and to ideate. Cultivate your creativity, and be open to the endless possibilities that arise from your intellectual pursuits.

The real journey to finding your purpose is not about “moving fast and breaking things” in the external world, but about delving deep into your inner self. The answers you seek are within you, waiting to be discovered through self-reflection, personal growth, and a profound understanding of your vast nature. Reconnect with your younger self, that fearless dreamer who knew no bounds, and uncover the brilliance of your true purpose, hidden in the light within.

As you embark on this journey, remember that it’s not about changing the world around you; it’s about changing yourself, for in that transformation, you will find the purpose that has always resided within you.
