I believe I am not the only one who have these questions: What is the purpose of life? What am I living for? What is my purpose in life?
Judging from the millions of search results, I think pretty much everyone have asked these questions at one point of their life or another.
I think I have found the answer to this question, at least it’s what I can agree on.
I chanced upon this answer when I was searching for answers to another question: Is travel really necessary?
The thing is, my parents don’t want me to travel. They feel that traveling is a waste of my hard-earned money and it is dangerous. I understand their concerns but I still want to travel. I was confused if my desire to travel is wrong so I decided to find out. This article gave me a whole new perspective as to why traveling is overrated.
Okay, back to the original question: What is the purpose of life? I found the answer in an article:
If you think about it, it’s really true. Everyone creates, it’s just a matter of how big the scale is.
Ordinary people make small creations. We create babies, we create homes, we create families.
The millionaires and billionaires are so rich because they created something that many people needed. Bill Gates created the world’s largest software company, Steve Jobs created a better smartphone. They created solutions to problems and that it why they are so successful.
What can I create? What problems can I solve to make the world a better place?
