During a dinner party recently, someone asked, "How do we know what our purpose is?"
So you know, at any of Lynnette's dinner parties, philosphopical conversations are encouraged.
I answered "We don't. However isn't it fun to find out we like, or don't like art, or we don't want to be an auto mechanic or landscaper?
By trialing careers, relationships, locations to live, or even friends we can tell if that something feels good, right...or wrong, meaning you'll need try again.
I like to think, that some however DO have knowledge of what they SHOULD do, an instinct...like people who have a talent for music, or ability to complete complex mathematical equations, etc.
What about people who have a desire to become something?
Ah desire, where did that come from?
Perhaps I have a desire to become a doctor? To become a doctor, I will need to complete high school, then go on to university, study specific subjects, graduate, intern and practice in a speciality. A desire requires learning, and a lot of luck!
I have a desire to make movies or television shows...one day I will.
