About purpose

We live in a time when you can try different things and change jobs and directions of development every time you get tired, feel uncomfortable, or don’t like it. People didn’t talk about purpose, mission, or dream job. Given a job — do it; you do well; well done, do it further; If you don’t do well, they take your work and give it to someone else.

Now everything is different. People have the freedom and the opportunity to choose. “Leave your unloved job, listen to yourself, let your inner voice tell you your purpose, and go when called! Do what is destined for you, and you will finally be happy.”

The test Menteora just determines what you are destined to do. Take the test, and artificial intelligence will tell you what professions you will be happy in!

Sometimes, having taken up some occupation, people will stubbornly and diligently continue to do it until they achieve success in the classical sense (money, fame, power, recognition). And although they will say about such people, “they have found their destiny,” at the moment of their maximum flowering, careerists will probably feel that some emptiness inside them still gnaws at them. And then, they will again run away from themselves and rush into a new business.

But what if the purpose and meaning of life are in life itself and not in work? In the process. We change how we behave, the conclusions we draw, and the people we influence.

After all, if you listen to yourself and decompose the day into its parts, then at what moments do the birds sing inside? When you feel helpful. When your presence changes someone’s life.

No single profession in the world would not give me this opportunity. British scientists have declared hairdressers and cook the happiest people. Because they instantly see the result of their work: combed and well-fed grateful people. Not every profession gives such a quick and noticeable result. But any voluntary work can be done with good intentions and a sense of mission, duty, and purpose. There is a famous story about how a NASA cleaning lady, when asked if she liked her job, answered in surprise, “of course! I’m helping to send people into space.”

You can’t settle for less when you want more severe responsibility and complex tasks. The potential must be used.

Suppose we agree that the purpose of professional manifestation is fiction, that we can reach heights in entirely different areas. In that case, the anxiety disappears as if you are wasting time or missing something important.

It is not written in our horoscope that we can walk with an even step on one road; we are destined to fall and stumble on all the others. We can walk on any, and on any, we will sometimes fall and stumble. And from a change of roads, we will not fall and stumble less.

If the purpose is in life itself and not in work, then those lessons we need to learn and those people we need to meet will learn and meet through any career manifestation. Work, in this case, is the scenery for the main action — life itself. And if the secret of life satisfaction is valid, you can be helpful in any scenery.

Purpose in the context of a career as a quantitative dimension. While the destination as life, as a process, is qualitative.

One person said: I want to be a billionaire. But to measure this is not by the number of dollars I have earned but by the number of lives I have influenced. Having affected even one life, you can feel like a billion.
