12 unmistakable signs you’re on the brink of finding your life’s purpose

Most people struggle with finding their life’s purpose. Until very recently, I was certainly one of them. 

I hated almost every minute of my job, the city I lived in, the people I hung out with, and of my life in general. 

So, it’s safe to say that uncovering your life’s meaning and direction is no easy feat. Still, there may be unmistakable signs you’re on the brink of finding your life’s purpose.

Keep on reading to find out why that’s important and what these signs are.  

1) You wake up excited

Now that I’ve finally found my purpose, I’m waking up excited and ready to start the day. I’m not dreading Mondays anymore and am, in fact, excited for them because I get to implement my ideas again.

If you’re on the brink of finding your life’s purpose, you, too, wake up with a purpose, looking forward to the day’s opportunities and challenges. 

You’re eager to engage with the world versus wanting to get back to bed and not face people and/or work.

2) It doesn’t feel like work

This goes beyond the idea that you love your job. It’s about feeling like what you do is an extension of who you are and that your work isn’t just a way to pay the bills. 

It’s not just a career; it’s a calling. 

What’s more, work doesn’t drain you. Instead, it energizes and fulfills you on a profound level. Your work and your identity have become inseparable.

That’s why the challenges you face aren’t obstacles you must overcome reluctantly. They’re opportunities to learn and grow, and you even see the tough moments as part of the grand adventure, not as setbacks.

Now compare that to your old job, where you felt like a drone and like you lived to work instead of working to live. 

3) You’re making a difference

When you find or are close to finding your life’s purpose, you feel your actions have a positive impact on the world around you. 

Whether it’s in your professional life, personal projects, or volunteer work, you see that what you’re doing matters and contributes to the improvement of other people’s lives.

I know firsthand the consequences of not finding your purpose in life. They include a general sense of frustration, lethargy, dissatisfaction, and a sense of not being connected with your inner self.

It’s difficult to find purpose when you’re not feeling in sync.

I learned about the power of purpose from watching this video by Justin Brown.

Justin used to be addicted to the self-help industry and New Age gurus, who sold him on visualization and positive thinking. He, too, felt lost and confused.

That’s why he traveled to Brazil to meet the renowned shaman Rudá Iandê, who taught him a life-changing new way to find your purpose and use it to transform your life and everything around you. 

After watching the video, I discovered my purpose in life, and it’s no exaggeration to say it was a turning point in my life.  

It was also one of the things that helped me become more focused on my work and be much more frequently in a state of flow. 

4) You’re in the flow

Ever had those moments when you’re so engrossed in something that time just slips away? That’s what it’s like being in the zone. You’re doing something that feels just right like it was made for you. 

The hours go by without you even noticing, and it feels as easy as breathing.

When you love doing something, you have a clear, unwavering focus. You know your purpose so well that when decisions come your way, you can quickly tell if they fit or not. 

It’s like having a clear roadmap in your mind, making your choices feel like stepping stones toward your goals.

5) You set meaningful goals

Speaking of goals, when you’re on the brink of finding purpose, your goals aren’t just tasks to check off; they’re signposts on your journey to living your purpose. 

These goals are in sync with what you’re passionate about and what truly matters to you, and they’re keeping you motivated and heading in the right direction.

For example, if you deeply value helping those in need, a goal might be to volunteer regularly at a local shelter or food bank.

And if you’re a high school science teacher, a meaningful goal is to inspire a deeper understanding of science and critical thinking by combining real-world applications and hands-on experiments into the curriculum.

6) You’re constantly curious

When you’re close to finding your purpose, your curiosity is insatiable. You have a burning desire to learn, not because you have to but because you want to

I’m always on the lookout for anything that can feed my hunger for knowledge. I dive into topics that resonate with what I love doing. 

I’m always excited to dig deeper and uncover more about the things that truly light me up.

These days, that’s all about YouTube and growing channels by making compelling videos that educate and entertain people. 

But there’s still one thing I need to achieve. And that’s this:

7) You’re a source of inspiration

People around you look up to you and draw inspiration from your journey once you find your purpose. 

Your enthusiasm and dedication motivate others to pursue their own passions. And that’s how you help them find their purpose too. 

You move from being a student to being a teacher and mentor. And that’s one of the beauties of platforms like Hack Spirit and YouTube. 

They let you share your passion and what you do and know best with millions of people worldwide. 

8) You have an unwavering belief

You might have moments of uncertainty and self-doubt along the way, which is completely normal. 

But deep down, you hold onto a strong belief in yourself and your capability to make your dreams a reality. 

This belief acts like an inner anchor, helping you stay resilient and push through even the toughest of obstacles. 

It’s this uncompromising faith in yourself that keeps you going, no matter what hurdles come your way.

And that’s what separates people who have found their life’s purpose and those who haven’t. 

Think about that for a moment. 

9) You embrace change

Instead of fearing or avoiding change, you see it as a chance for personal growth. You realize that life is a book, and change is the next exciting chapter

You don’t just adapt to change; you welcome it because it often brings new opportunities and fresh paths to explore within your life’s purpose. 

It’s like looking forward to an adventurous journey where every twist and turn is a chance to learn, grow, and become a better version of yourself.

Plus, when you’re on the verge of finding your life’s purpose, you’re not too cautious but ready to take well-thought-out risks in pursuit of your purpose. 

But have you thought about the following benefit?

10) You’re surrounded by like-minded people

Let me ask you this: is your crew made up of people who get you? Do they not only have your back but also share the same fire for what you’re passionate about? 

If that’s so, count yourself lucky because these relationships aren’t just about support. 

They’re about having buddies who lift you up, inspire you, and make you feel at home as you chase after what really matters to you.

If that’s not the case, you might be going after your life’s purpose all wrong. Maybe try sharing your journey with others or actively seek out people who are on a similar path and are able to understand you much better than your current gang. 

11) You don’t compare yourself

You understand that everyone’s path is unique. Instead of constantly comparing yourself to others and feeling the pressure to keep up, you focus on your own goals and what truly matters to you. 

You’re no longer burdened by the pressure to conform to someone else’s definition of success or fulfillment. Think – your parents, friends, peers, partner, and so on. 

They all have or had expectations of how your life would look like. But now that you know what you need to do, you don’t care what everyone else thinks. 

Plus, seeing others find their success and/or purpose doesn’t make you feel bad inside anymore. 

12) You prioritize your well-being

When you’ve discovered your life’s purpose, you’re more likely to understand the importance of maintaining a healthy and balanced life.

When you’re passionate about something, this passion provides a strong motivation to take care of yourself because you want to be in the best possible condition to continue your journey.

But more importantly, finding your life’s purpose often leads to a more significant, long-term perspective. 

You’re thinking about the legacy you want to leave and how your work contributes to the greater good. 

This perspective encourages you to take care of your well-being to uphold your contributions over the years.

Why it’s so hard to find your life’s purpose?

There’s often a lot of pressure to discover a single, all-encompassing purpose that defines your life. 

This expectation is overwhelming and unrealistic, making the process even more challenging, as does overanalyzing and overthinking the search. 

Sometimes, it’s a matter of “feeling” your way rather than thinking it out logically.

Financial obligations, societal pressures, or family expectations also make it difficult to focus on pursuing your purpose.

It’s tough to stay on course when life throws you curveballs.

While finding your life’s purpose is challenging, you need to understand that it’s a process, not a destination. 

It’s okay to have multiple passions and for your sense of purpose to evolve. The journey itself, with its ups and downs, is also incredibly valuable for personal growth and self-discovery.
