What is My Life Purpose?

Written by Jo Ball


Why am I here?

If you havent already asked this question, Im sure you will. Sooner or later most of us do.

Its not an easy question to answer. Its broad in terms of possibility.

Right now you might be a go-getter inrepparttar city; but you could just as easily be a procrastinator in a suburb. Same question, different perception.

But whatever were searching for in life, be it a bigger home, a wonderful relationship, a new car, top job with a superb salary, loving children or just a little peace in our hearts, its clear to see we are all united in our search for one thing. But what is that thing?

Its a simple thing. Its atrepparttar 145868 heart of all of our decisions, yet it often passes us by too easily, too often. When we do catch it, it is a marvelous experience.

I believe were all searching for happiness and I believerepparttar 145869 reason why we miss it so often is because of how we search for it. What do I mean?

Weve been conditioned to want. Wanting creates doing. We desire possessions and money and careers so that we feel or look good so we dorepparttar 145870 things that bring this to us. We attach our happiness to these objects and then somehow feel empty when we have them.

This is why so many people fell disillusioned, lost or confused about their path. This is why so many people are asking or will ask, Why am I here?

I asked this question too. Many times, several years ago, I looked up torepparttar 145871 sky and asked it. Im not sure what I expected perhaps a bolt of lightening strikingrepparttar 145872 pavement before me or a boulder falling fromrepparttar 145873 sky withrepparttar 145874 details engraved on it?

It didnt happen. Then I asked a more powerful question. How do I discover why I am here?

SOCIAL NETWORKING FOR SHY PEOPLE

Written by Regina Stevens


Social networking is not easy for shy people. Social networking in a group setting requires you to "work a room" and "sell yourself" and your qualifications. If you are good at selling yourself, social networking is a cinch. Well, I am one ofrepparttar shy people. I hated attending these networking meetings because they made me feel uncomfortable. Not once did I find a contact to help me find a job either. I do know of people who have found jobs this way, and social networking is extremely important in Atlanta, Georgia. I, for one, am not comfortable, so I had to let it go. Finding a job is stressful enough, why force yourself to do something that makes you feel awkward.

Not everyone hasrepparttar 145848 "gift of gab" or hasrepparttar 145849 personality to win people over. This is unfortunate for people who have wonderful skills to offer an employer. Trust me, you are notrepparttar 145850 only one losing out because of your shyness. There is a company out there who needs your skills, but since you are shy, they may never know unless you find another way to introduce yourself to them.

I learned early that I was not good at "working a room" at these networking meetings so I decided to find other ways to network. Some of my methods are common, but some of them are not so common, but effective. I started out using my methods to solely find a job, but during my networking I found friends and business partners.
