Greetings to our amiable people of Rivers State and welcome to another episode of RivEthics on Radio, our character-building weekend show. Please remember that the purpose of life is to live a life of purpose. This episode is titled, “Purposeful Living”
Living a life of purpose can motivate you to get up in the morning and put your full energy into your day. Having purpose in your life can help you feel as though your routines and habits are meaningful and important to you, and to those around you. You can live a life of purpose by following your passions and by setting goals. You may also find purpose in life by giving back to others and by living a more balanced life, where you appreciate what you have and savour every moment of your day.
Steps in living a life of purpose include, firstly identifying your passions. A big part of living a life of purpose is having passions and living them. Start by thinking about what you are passionate about. Write down your passions, being as descriptive as possible. Ask yourself, “What do I love to do? What makes me happy?” Identifying your passions will help you realize what is important to you in life. For example, you may be passionate about providing for your family, being an avid reader, or owning a home of your own. After you have identified your passions, speak them out loud every day to remind yourself.
Secondly, integrate your passions into your everyday life. Take your passions and put them into action. Try to integrate them into your everyday life, even if it is just in small ways. Put more of your passion into bonding with your family, as you realize you are passionate about having strong connections to your family members. Or set aside more time to do hobbies you are passionate about, such as painting, singing, reading or writing.
Thirdly, Set goals and work to achieve them. Having goals in your life can also help you feel you are living a purposeful life. Set clear goals around your passion and work to achieve them so you can feel you are accomplishing what you want in life. Write down your goals and post them somewhere you can see them. Refer to them often and check them off as you achieve them. This can help you feel you are living with purpose and motivate you to embrace every day as another opportunity to achieve your goals.
There are so many strategies to living a purposeful life, as we shall now hear from our guest speaker. He is Mr. Ajani Ahmed Olanrewaju, an accomplished school teacher and administrator. He will be sharing his insights on the subject. Please enjoy the episode.
Our distinguished people of Rivers State, don’t forget to always let your manners speak for you.
God bless and keep you and your families and God bless Rivers State.
