How to Identify What You Want in Life?

find your purpose in life

Have you ever felt lost, unsure of your place in the world or what you were meant to do with your life? If so, you’re not alone. Many people struggle to identify what they want in life, unsure about their life purpose and meaning, leaving them feeling unfulfilled and stuck in a rut. But the good news is, there are ways to identify what you want in life and lead a life that’s filled with passion, meaning, and fulfillment.

In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at why it’s so important to know what you want in life and how finding your life purpose can help with that. We’ll talk about a helpful method known as Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (QHHT) and share a true story about how it helped someone just like you.

The Conflict of Societal Expectations and Personal Desires

One common reason people often find themselves confused about what they truly want in life is due to societal expectations and pressure. For instance, society often advocates a particular success narrative: acquiring a good education, landing a high-paying job, marrying, buying a house, and raising a family.

Suppose you’re Sarah, an accomplished lawyer, who’s ticked all the ‘right’ boxes. However, you realize you aren’t fulfilled. You’ve pursued law because your parents saw it as a prestigious profession. Yet, your heart has always yearned for art and creativity. You find joy in painting, but you’ve neglected this passion due to societal and familial pressures, convincing yourself that art was just a hobby and couldn’t be a viable career.

Your confusion lies in the contrast between societal expectations (a successful law career) and personal fulfillment (creating art). The ‘wants’ defined by society aren’t necessarily what you truly desire, causing a conflict within you, leading to confusion and uncertainty about what you genuinely want in life. The journey then becomes about recognizing and honoring your authentic self and desires.

How to Identify What You Want in Life?

The key to uncovering what you truly want in life often lies in discovering your life’s purpose. This purpose is your compass, guiding you towards your deepest desires and ambitions. When you unearth and understand your life’s purpose, it illuminates your path forward, revealing what you genuinely want in life.

Your life’s purpose is more than a mere goal or a dream; it’s the deep-seated essence that fuels your passion, motivations, and ambitions. When you identify this purpose, your true desires become evident. They are no longer just vague notions or fleeting thoughts but solid, actionable objectives aligned with your purpose.

Knowing what you want in life and aligning it with your life’s purpose creates a synergy that propels you towards satisfaction, fulfillment, and joy. It offers clarity and direction, allowing you to move forward with confidence and conviction. So, by identifying your life’s purpose, you unlock the key to understanding what you truly want, setting the stage for a life lived in alignment with your deepest desires.

How Knowing Your Life Purpose Shapes Your Life?

When you identify what you truly desire, it provides you with a host of benefits that help you lead a more meaningful life. These benefits include:

  • A greater sense of meaning in life
  • The ability to live a fulfilling, purposeful life
  • Clarity in identifying your life goals
  • Confidence in making decisions with a clear sense of purpose
  • A strong sense of self-identity and purpose
  • A greater sense of connection to something beyond yourself
  • The opportunity to make a positive impact on the world and the people in your community
  • Increased fulfillment, happiness, and satisfaction with your life
  • Live the life you truly want

The Common Obstacles: Fear and Limiting Beliefs

While this journey of self-discovery can be empowering, fear and limiting beliefs can often cloud your vision. Fear may stifle your curiosity and courage, hindering you from discovering your true calling. Limiting beliefs can induce self-doubt and feelings of unworthiness, obscuring your true potential and purpose in life.

QHHT - An Effective Way to Discover Your Life Purpose

QHHT, or Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique, is a powerful technique that enables individuals to access their higher self to obtain answers to their deepest questions, including discovering their life purpose. This technique is guided by the higher self, and as a result, the message received can never be wrong (except if your ego self doubts it unknowingly). During a QHHT session, you can feel and sense if the message resonates with you and can confirm what you already know. By gaining clarity and strength to pursue your life purpose, you can be confident that it is true from inside out.

Through QHHT, you will also find guidance on how to achieve your life purpose, where and how you can find resources (if you need to) to support you in achieving your life purpose. Knowing that you are always guided and supported keeps you grounded and relaxed as you pursue your life purpose.

Case Story: How Sophie Found Her True Calling Through QHHT

Sophie was a client who came to seek help to find her life purpose after a recent divorce. She was devastated and stressed about her unknown future. After a QHHT session, she felt a huge relief as she understood why the divorce needed to happen – to move her out of her comfort zone and be herself, pursuing her life in a healthy and positive direction.

Her higher self has given her a clear direction on where she needs to focus from then on. She walked out of the session room with a bright smile on her face, knowing exactly what to do next for her new purpose in life. Her new purpose was to help divorced women win themselves back from feeling unworthy and failure in marriage so that they can move forward with clarity and strength.

Conclusion: Knowing Your Purpose

In conclusion, knowing your life purpose can transform your life, gain clarity, focus, and help you find a strong sense of self. Through techniques like QHHT, you can gain the guidance and clarity needed to discover your true calling and pursue a life filled with passion and fulfillment.

By overcoming fear and limiting beliefs and taking steps to connect with others and explore your passions, you can find your life purpose and make a positive impact on the world. So, take the time to think about what you want in life, and don’t be afraid to pursue your dreams – the benefits are truly life-changing.
