To realize your purpose, try the following tips
Craft a Personal Mission Statement
If you don’t have a sense of purpose, how do you find it? Articulating your personal mission statement can be a good start. Begin by answering this question in a single, memorable sentence: Why do you get up in the morning? Consider what you’re passionate about, how you enjoy using your talents, and what is truly important to you.
Find a Partner
Find someone to whom you can communicate your life purpose, along with a plan for realizing it. It can be a friend, a family member, a spouse, a colleague—as long as it’s someone who can help you honestly assess your plan and your successes.
Learn Something New
Take up a musical instrument or learn a new language. Both activities are among the most powerful things you can do to preserve your mental sharpness."
