The ultimate purpose of our life
Purpose of Life is the goal set in your student life. Goals set in school will give you an advantage in this competitive world. In the 21st century, if you can strictly follow some routine during student life to pursue your defined Purpose of Life, you are sure to get success.
What is the purpose of life?
We have asked this question to thousands of young students in both graduate and post-graduate levels - both girls and boys. Our intent is to know how they plan to employ their precious time and energy for future goals to fulfill the purpose of life. Our team is a bit frustrated. Not because we do not get the expected answer. But because, most young students, both girls and boys, do not have any direction, they are rudderless. Of course, we must confess that the brilliant girls and boys in every batch have shown signs determined purpose of life, be it professional career or academic research. But, on the whole, mediocrity has grasped the whole society everywhere- villages and towns. All of them are loitering away precious youth. Costly Mobile Phones have been spoiling the girls and boys from early school life. It is worse than drugs because it is legally and socially permitted. In the absence of any sex education in developing countries, Mobile Phones are making millions of young students sexually perverts. As a result, girls in their own class or lower classes are becoming easy prey for the pervert boys. They have become patients of pleasure principles. Their life has become spoiled, and they are spoiling many innocent lives.
What about the purpose of the good students?
Only a few of them have determined destination- either higher education and research, or higher skill development, or sports, or music. Most of them come from middle-class families; some take bank loans for studies. They eventually leave the place of their birth. In the 21st century, “Mobility” is “success”. In the old world, people used to die where they were born. In the 21st century, the whole world belongs to an intelligent, educated and skilled person. They do not have a nationality. Only politicians have. Even Capital does not have any nationality. Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, Ronald Wayne, TATA, Sundar Pichai, Satya Nadella, Arvind Krishna, Ambani, Lionel Messi, Ravi Shankar and such others are everywhere. They are in China, in India, in Europe, in Africa, of course in the USA, and everywhere. The fools think and fight for nations. Business giants do not. Politicians maximize votes. These young brilliant students we came across do not waste time at the cost of career and life.
What makes these mature young people different?
They must be having higher DNA (having higher intelligence levels by birth), or better family background, or lucky to have better friends or teachers at the beginning. If you do not set your purpose of life before the school leaving the stage, you will lead to nowhere, and doomed to self-destruction and frustration. So, the cause of your birth remains unfulfilled. And your parents who show you the light of the day will be hurt the most. Keep in mind, life is very short. Before us, billions of people have come and left the world silently. Only some have left behind them indelible marks so that we still remember after two and three millenniums. You have the right to your work, not to the fruits. So, go on searching. Let us continue.
How to determine your course of life?
The easiest answer is to first judge your born talent and skills. Your parents and teachers as well as good friends can help you detect your special skills at an early stage. You should know it better. When you come to know this, dedicate every moment of time, every bit of energy on your purpose. Alongside, you have to maintain good health, practice Yoga, eat good food, maintain good relationships, choose good hobbies and use your leisure productively. Keep in mind: life is a journey, no more, no less. If you observe the life of your grandparents and parents or your neighbors, you will easily perceive the lessons of life. Of course, you also learn it from Autobiographies of the greatest people who were born on this planet irrespective of nationality. If you do the above, Almighty Nature will be at your side. You cannot change the world, but you can change your life. Gautam Buddha, Jesus Christ, Krishna, Gandhi have failed to change the world. So, get ready to take the challenge called “Life”.
What is then the purpose of life?
In a nutshell, the purpose of life is to complete the journey you have in a dream here in this life. In order to do this, you need to have a dynamic view of life depending on your vision and ability.
What is your dream journey?
It depends on lots of factors. You may want to become a teacher or an engineer, or a doctor, or a computer expert, or a scientist, or an artist, or an author, or an agriculturist, or a musician, or a sports person, or a business person, or an industrialist. But you have to choose a single path, and devote your time and energy into the profession. However, in order to complete the journey of life through your chosen trajectory, you need to maintain good health. Because, in this world, competition is too tough. So, you have to devote wholeheartedly without any compromise. Youth is the time when if you choose something scientifically, you can pursue it. Otherwise, it is almost impossible to get success in life.
