all i want for christmas is a purpose in life

giftMark Twain said the two greatest days in a person’s life are the day they’re born and the day they find out why. Seeing as the first day happens regardless of anything we do, we should focus all our earthly endeavors on the second day. This year, give yourself the ultimate Christmas gift and find out what you were born to do.

So how does a person go about unwrapping their life gifts? Our gifts only become readily apparent when we use them. Therefore, at any given moment, there are thousands of things we are capable of doing if we are willing. All it takes is for us to act.

One of the most transformational books of all time is Victor Frankl’s gut-wrenching memoir Man’s Search for Meaning. In it, Mr. Frankl quickly puts man’s search for meaning in perspective. He insists we stop asking life what its meaning is because life has already given us everything we need to begin living.

The meaning of life is a life of meaning. There’s a big difference between a life that’s achieved success and a life that’s achieved greatness. Success is measured by what a person does; greatness is measure by what a person gives. The only way to give meaning back to life is to know why you are here and then it becomes quite obvious what your purpose is.

“I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store;

For Life is just an employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have paid.”

― Jessie B. Rittenhouse
