How to discover your life purpose in about 20 minutes

Steve Palvina writes an excellent personal development blog. Here an example: How to discover your life purpose in about 20 minutes:

"If you want to discover your true purpose in life, you must first empty your mind of all the false purposes you’ve been taught (including the idea that you may have no purpose at all). So how to discover your purpose in life? While there are many ways to do this, some of them fairly involved, here is one of the simplest that anyone can do. The more open you are to this process, and the more you expect it to work, the faster it will work for you. But not being open to it or having doubts about it or thinking it’s an entirely idiotic and meaningless waste of time won’t prevent it from working as long as you stick with it — again, it will just take longer to converge.

Here’s what to do:
1) Take out a blank sheet of paper or open up a word processor where you can type (I prefer the latter because it’s faster).
2) Write at the top, “What is my true purpose in life?”
3) Write an answer (any answer) that pops into your head. It doesn’t have to be a complete sentence. A short phrase is fine.
4) Repeat step 3 until you write the answer that makes you cry. This is your purpose. "

Try it out.

Heh, but what if you start crying over writing down millions of options and purposes and not one makes you even shiver? Would that mean that the purpose of your life would be looking for it?

Hi Maternitus,

I would think so. Better than aimlessly waisting your life away and being pray to the allures of other people's marketing messages any day.

All the best, Mark.
