How To Discover Your Divine Destiny by Ebonygeek(f): 12:45pm On Jun 15
As a person growing and living in the 21st century, making the right decisions and knowing the right path to follow at all times may not always be easy.

Most of the time, actions that are considered 'normal' may not often seem 'correct' when you view them from a different perspective. One of such actions is romance scam, popularly called 'yahoo yahoo' or 'keyboarding' in Nigeria.

The perpetrators usually create fake online profiles, locate foreign clients, befriend them, and find ways to convince them to transfer their savings to stipulated bank accounts.

Although the culprits often end up with large amounts of money to buy whatever they want, their victims are always left devastated and sometimes suicidal when they discover that they've been tricked. In addition, the culprits hardly ever amount to anything in life.

Many get trapped in an endless loop of duping people, spending all the money on frivolous things, and going back to square one, where they start searching for new people to trick. This is just one out of numerous 'normal' behaviours that don't seem correct when you analyze them from other viewpoints.

So, the million dollar question is, "How can an individual know what ‘correct’ behaviour is, as well as determine which path will lead to the best possible outcome for their life?"

In this article, we'll go over ways to know correct behaviour and steps any young person can follow to become their best self and achieve whatever purpose they were sent here to accomplish.

Right and Wrong: Knowing the Difference

An excellent way to know whether your actions are right or wrong is by examining their effects on other people. For instance, when speaking to someone, you can determine whether it's okay to use certain words with them by paying attention to their facial expressions or body language. If you notice that they react negatively when you use certain words, that's an indication that you aren't using ‘correct’ words.

You can apply the same technique to your other actions and behaviours. It's important to avoid deliberately hurting people as doing so can keep you from creating value and achieving anything meaningful in your lifetime.

Other ways to differentiate right and wrong behaviour is by examining the constitution or laws guiding your area of residence or by relying on holy books to guide your actions.

Finding Purpose

A wise man once said, “What our deepest self craves is not mere enjoyment, but some supreme purpose that will enlist all our powers and will give unity and direction to our life. We can never know the profoundest joy without a conviction that our life is significant-not a meaningless episode.”

If you want to add more meaning to your life or figure out a new direction to follow, consider following the steps below:

Rely on a Higher Power for Guidance

Though many people nowadays identify as atheists, agnostics, and so on, it is worthwhile to note that millions of people around the world have reported finding meaning and purpose in life, when they started relying on a higher power.

Whether or not you have a university degree or impressive skills, connecting to something greater than yourself can open your eyes to previously unseen pathways.

Moreso, throughout the Scriptures, God is portrayed as a guiding light who leads His people through life's challenges. So, whether it's huge life choices or daily decisions, seeking and recognising God's counsel can be crucial for a life connected with purpose.

Figure Out What Excites You

Everyone has something that makes them happy when they talk to others about it. To find yours, you can ask yourself questions such as, "What do I truly enjoy doing?" or "What are the things I like talking about, reading about, or posting about on my social networking sites?" These can be hints towards a route that will be satisfying and worthwhile for you.

Consider Your Educational and Training Background

Although your purpose might lead you towards a completely different path from anything you've done before, you may find that there is a way to blend your passion with abilities you've already acquired. Identify any specialized skills you've gained in your current job, certificates or degrees you've obtained, or any additional education that could be relevant as you decide which path to follow.

What Changes Would You Like to See Around You?

When you're browsing the news or scrolling through social media, focus on those issues that touch your heart. If anything makes you particularly dissatisfied or angry, you may find meaning in assisting others who are dealing with the same problem.

Think of Your Life as a Novel and Picture the Ending

Imagine that your life is a novel and you're the main character in it. Think about how you want your story to end. If you're unhappy with the outcome, think about which ending might make you more satisfied. This can be a huge determiner of your destiny.

Start to Set Small Goals

As you think about your best abilities and passions and start to see the kind of future you want, evaluate the steps you could take to get started. They don't have to be enormous, life-changing modifications, especially at the beginning. Start where you are today and build your way towards your desires from there.

Write Down Your Desires

Sometimes accomplishing your goals takes a while, and it can be difficult to remain motivated. But if you pen down the targets you want to achieve and place it where you'll see it frequently, it could assist in keeping you on track—particularly as you start making progress.

Don't Let People's Opinions Faze You

Whatever you choose to pursue, it should be your choice. If you're truly determined, don't allow anyone to convince you that you aren't talented or smart enough, or that the road ahead would be too difficult. Remember, it is merely their opinion. You're the only person who can determine your destiny.

Be Patient

Discovering your purpose in life can be a lifelong journey, so don't anticipate an answer right away, and don't stress about hurrying the process. Simply search for ways to make tiny improvements that can bring you nearer to feeling like you are accomplishing your life's purpose.

Be Consistent

If you are truly convinced that you have discovered the right path for you, it will be worthwhile to persevere regardless of the challenges that arise. If you've got a positive mindset, are patient, and committed to putting in the work, you will most likely achieve your goals in time.

Bottom Line

Finding a life purpose can be a bit challenging in this day and age because many people no longer distinguish between right and wrong behaviours when choosing a life or career path to follow. They simply copy the norms of those around them.

However, choosing which direction to follow doesn't have to be so difficult. By following the steps outlined above, you'll be sure to receive some clarity on the pathway to take.
