A chaotic life that lacks purpose is a lot of trouble for nothing. Imagine walking and never reaching any specified destination. Leading life coach Vinod Adani, emphasizes that a purposeless life that lacks balance is much the same. All individuals desire purpose and balance, and with expert input from Mr. Adani, one can achieve purpose and balance in life. Read further to know more. 

Balance and Purpose Are Consequential to Each Other 

When looking for balance and an end to the chaos that is symptomatic of your daily routine, it is important to understand that balance and purpose are consequential to each other. According to Mr Adani, the lack of purpose in life leads to a chaotic and aimless lifestyle. To find balance, one must find one purpose. Having a purpose is often all the motivation we require to maintain balance and remain grounded.

Your purpose decides the roadmap of your life. Your purpose determines the direction you take towards achieving said purpose, be it professional, personal, or spiritual goals. The key to finding balance in your life is finding your purpose. Bearing the same in mind, let’s explore ways to tap into our purpose in life while finding the balance to achieve said purpose. 

What is a Purposeful Life?  

Surely, purposeful living cannot mean the mindless pursuit of money and a career. In many interactions with young and upcoming professionals from all walks of life, Mr. Adani has flagged a common theme of disillusionment and a lack of purpose and balance despite high-flying careers guaranteeing significant financial rewards and professional perks. Simply put, one can safely assume that one’s job or finances do not necessarily facilitate balance or lead to a sense of purpose. So, what is purposeful living?

When asking yourself this very question, it is imperative to understand what a purposeful life means. For Vinod Adani, life coach and motivational speaker, purposeful life is about contentment and finding meaning while preserving one’s true self and core values. Moreover, a purposeful life accounts for the well-being of others and the efforts required to learn and grow with each passing day.

What is Not a Purposeful Life? 

A purposeful life is not about career aspirations and achievements. Living with purpose is not about hoarding material wealth or chasing superficial gains. In a dog-eat-dog world, having the ideal job and pursuing career and financial gains is survival. Working, earning, and meeting one’s needs through the same is the essence of survival. Prehistoric men did the same, and so did hunter-gatherers. For people living a life immersed in the pursuit of career and financial gains, chaos and disillusionment are symptomatic of daily living.

On the other hand, and as stated previously, a purposeful life accounts for bringing about healthy and holistic growth in one’s life and those of others. Purposeful living aligns with your passions and deeply held values and is the key to transitioning from merely existing to truly thriving. A deeper understanding of purpose is required to live a purposeful life truly, and it is worth noting that making money and having a job are requirements of life and not intrinsic purpose. 

Take Your First Steps towards Purposeful Living 

According to notable motivational speaker Vinod Adani, taking your first steps towards purposeful living does not require divine enlightenment. Purposeful living requires self-introspection. When seeking purpose within yourself, you must question who you are and what you value. 

Who Are You? 

Leading life coach Vinod Adani emphasizes that limited awareness of oneself is the prime reason for purposeless, chaotic living. Balance and purpose come from deep self-awareness, and self-awareness requires significant introspection into oneself.

Understand who you are and what motivates and inspires you. Turn the mirror to yourself, and look within to identify your life choices and habits and the motivation behind the same. A proper understanding of yourself as you are, allows you to start working towards who you wish to be. Deep introspection into oneself will enable us to understand our flaws and shortcomings and work towards improving ourselves. Self-introspection and course correction are at the core of purposeful living. 

What are Your Values?

One can never find purpose and balance while compromising one’s values. External factors such as the desire to live up to societal expectations and the opinions of others, alongside the pursuit of material wealth, often spells death for true purpose and balance in life. A life that aligns with our values gives a sense of meaning and balance to what can otherwise be a purposeless and chaotic existence.

Living a life that aligns with our values, be it family, relationships, belief systems, creative expression, or personal passions, defines living with purpose. Aligning one’s values with one’s daily life takes effort. One must align one’s actions in life with one’s values to discover purposeful living.

Leading life coach Vinod Adani sums up purposeful living and balance by emphasizing a deeper understanding of oneself and one’s values. Aligning oneself with the same is purposeful living while living a life guided by one’s core values is the definition of a life balance that allows you to thrive instead of merely existing.
