The Life Purpose Quiz
Does it work? The only way to know is to try it ... So take out your journal, a blank notebook or a sheet of paper and ponder each of these questions.
Ask yourself each question and write down whatever comes to you, no matter how silly or off the wall. Do not be surprised if the first 10 or 20 answers are spilling back to you the things you have heard others say or you have read somewhere. Often, you have to empty out all the rote answers you were given or picked up before you get to the intuitive answers that come truly from deep inside of you.
Keep asking the questions and writing down the answers until you have at least 50 answers, you keep getting the same answer, or you keep drawing a blank.

Who can help me with my life purpose?
What else do I need to know about my life purpose?
When will I know I am done?

Working with Your Answers
Once you have answered all of the questions, go back over them and see if you have anything more to add. Yo might want to put your answers aside for a day or two and then come back and ask them again. Sometimes that gives you more clarity and a second chance to get more detailed information, especially if you were having a bad day or were stressed out.
Now, take a few minutes to read over your list of answers. Start to pick out the ones that have a common theme or resonate with you. Try to group them and rewrite them into a combined sentence that makes more sense to you.
You may have to play with this working sentence for a while to get it so it feels right and resonates with some place deep inside of you. When you are ready, ask these follow-up questions ...
Is this my life purpose?
What else do I need to know?
How can I make the sentence better, more descriptive?
What should I do with it now?
How can I start living my purpose?
What is my first step? Where do I start?
Write down all your answers and think about what they mean. If yo are not sure about what you have come up with .. that is OK. Sometimes, finding that small, still voice inside is all you need to do. Trusting it comes with experience and time.
Now, take some time to see how you feel about what you have written. Does it make you feel excited, inspired, more calm or full of energy? Does it help you make sense of your life .. what has happened so far and the path that lies in front of you? Does it make you feel better about yourself?
