Many people spend years at a job that they absolutely can't stand. As the years go by the person thinks, well maybe this year I will figure out what my purpose is and then go do that instead. Well, what that person doesn't know is that they already know what their purpose is, but just haven't been listening to their inner guide that tells them what they are good at. We are all meant to do something and no matter what direction in life we go, our true purpose will always pop back up and it is what we are naturally draw toward. Some roles that we naturally take on without realizing are teachers, listeners, problem solvers, innovators, protectors or creators. The role that we naturally take on in life is the guide to our true purpose. For myself, it was always being a problem solver no matter where I was. Just be aware and don't ignore your potential, as it was given to you for a reason. Once you realize what that purpose is, take the steps to explore it further, but don't let your natural gifts be suppressed. Your purpose has always been there, you just need to follow it.
