here are five great benefits of living a purpose-driven life: 

Knowing your purpose gives meaning to your life. We were made to have meaning. This is why people try dubious methods, like astrology or psychics, to discover it. When life has meaning, you can bear almost anything; without it, nothing is bearable. A young man in his twenties wrote, "I feel like a failure because I'm struggling to become something, and I don't even know what it is. All I know how to do it. Someday, if I discover my purpose, I'll feel I'm beginning to live." Without God, life has no purpose, and without purpose, life has no meaning. Without meaning, life has no significance or hope. In the Bible, many different people expressed this hopelessness. Isaiah complained, "I have labored to no purpose; I have spent my strength in pain and for nothing." Job said, "My life drags by-day after hopeless day" and "I give up; I am tired of living. leave me alone. My life makes no sense." The greatest tragedy is not death, but life without purpose. Hope is as essential to your life as air and water. You need hope to cope. Dr. Bernie Siegel found he could predict which of his cancer patients would go into remission by asking, "Do you want to live to be one hundred?" Those with a deep sense of life purpose answered yes and were the ones most likely to survive. Hope comes from having a purpose. If you have felt hopeless, hold on! Wonderful changes are going to happen in your life as you begin to live it on purpose. God says, "I know what I am planning for you.... `I have good plans for you, not plans to hurt you. I will give you hope and a good future."" You may feel you are facing an impossible situation, but the Bible says, "God ... is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes." Knowing your purpose simplifies your life. It defines what you do and what you don't do. Your purpose becomes the standard you use to evaluate which activities are essential and which aren't. You simply ask, "Does this activity help me fulfill one of God's purposes for my life?" Without a clear purpose you have no foundation on which you base decisions, allocate your time, and use your resources. You will tend to make choices based on circumstances, pressures, and your mood at that moment. People who don't know their purpose try to do too much-and that 

causes stress, fatigue, and conflict.

Thank you Joseph for sharing a very nice topic !

It's like the most important  question " TO BE OR NOT TO BE ".Most of the people at least once have thought about this question " Why I am living for? " . Some have found the answer , some have pretended to find it and some gave up .  

There is a useful book "Man's Search for Meaning" by Viktor Emil Frankl , an Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist .He was the founder of Logotherapy . This book is Frankl's memories in  Auschwitz and it helped him to confirm his logotherapy idea .

We are born with a blank slate (or book). We have the opportunity to create the lives we want and in so doing discover our own meaning. Living life following someone else's dogma (rules said to be true) prevents us from discovering ourselves.

Accepting that there may be no meaning to life other than the meaning we create, is liberating.

Tall vez nuestros hikos, Joseph. Without God, life has no meaning. We have to have faith in God. I guess it is for our children. The main purpose of life is our existence. In upbringing our kids we make an extension of our life. We have a saying, (The person with children is not dead). We mean after his or her death, people say the son or daughter of that X guy. Thanks, Joseph for sharing.

The purpose of life is to live. 

Have you found your own purpose of life different from live itself? How you did it? Can you share to help others?

   I remember  reading  a book on the same  topic " Human beings  Search for Meaning "   unfortunately  , I can't recall the name  of its author  . Having a meaning propel us to enjoy our life and help to alleviate the challenges and the sufferings  . Thanks for sharing your nice  and well  written  blog with us :)

“The mystery of human existence lies not in just staying alive, but in finding something to live for.”(Fyodor Dostoyevsky)

“If you can tune into your purpose and really align with it, setting goals so that your vision is an expression of that purpose, then life flows much more easily.” (Jack Canfield)

Although everybody has a life purpose, many people remain unconscious of it during their entire lives. Those people may confuse their life purpose with worldly goals, such as career, making money, and being successful.
