It’s OK if you don’t know why you are here or what you are suppose to be doing with your life. It can take years to find our true calling but if you can’t wait that long, here are some questions to help you get on the path to finding your life’s purpose.
如果你不知道,你为什么来这儿,也不知道一生该做什么?这不要紧的。因为这些问题的答案是要我们花费很多年去寻觅的。但是如果你不想在漫长的时光中等待,这里有一些问题可以帮助你找到一条道路,去寻找你人生的目标。

1. Am I doing what I love?
问题一:我是否在从事自己喜欢的职业?

Asking this question should pertain to your life as a whole. Do I love my family, friends, and work? Am I doing things outside of my job that I love like drawing, writing, or any creative art? If you are not doing what you love, look at why you haven’t been doing them and start incorporating them in your life.
回答这一问题需要你把你的生活当做一个整体来思考。我爱我的家庭、喜欢我的朋友、我的工作吗?我是否从事工作以外的的事,而这些事有是我所喜欢的,像画画、写作、或是任何创作艺术?如果你不是在做你喜欢做的事,找寻原因,为什么你没有做,然后把它们融入你的生活。

2. Am I surrounded by people that I care about?
问题二:我的身边是我在乎的人吗?

It’s important when looking for purpose in your life, you look at the people around you. Your friends, family, co workers should all be people who support you in your quest to find real purpose. Not having those types of people around you could harm your progress in finding meaning. When I pursued writing, my friends and family played an important role in encouraging me to do it. Even if I didn’t think an article I wrote was good, they still knew it made me happy to write and that type of positive reinforcement does wonders.
这一问题在你寻找人生目标时是很重要的,看看你身边的人。你的朋友、家人、同事都应该支持你寻找人生真正目标。你的身边不要存在那些在你寻找生命意义的过程中有害的朋友。在我过程中,我的家人以及朋友的鼓励我发挥了重要的作用。即使在我不觉得我写的文章不错的时候,他们依然知道习作会让我开心,而这种积极的力量创造了奇迹。

3. Am I Happy With wher I Am?
问题三:我喜欢我的工作吗?

Look at every aspect of your life. Ask if you are happy with what you have done. Are you going in the direction you want for your life. If not, what can you do to get there? It is hard not to compare our lives to our friends to measure success but try hard not to get caught up in what others have. The true measurement of happiness is are we doing what we want and happy with the journey that lies ahead.
看看你生活的各个面。问自己对自己以做到的成绩是否满意,是否在自己想要的人生方向上,如果不是,有什么可以做去达到它?不拿我们的生活去和朋友们的生活比较,从而衡量是否成功是很困难的,但是不要被别人所拥什么影响。真正衡量是否幸福的方法,是看我们是否在从事想做的事,是否对人生路途的方向满意。

4. Is there more I can do?
问题四:这里还有什么是我能做的?

You already know there is always more you can do. The real question lies in what can you do more of. Think of what you would want to contribute to society and what impact you want to have. There are tons of issues in our society that need people looking to make an impact. Think of what are some social issues that trigger you emotionally. Start there and find ways to get involved with organizations who focus on those social issues.
你是知道的,总是还有一些事是你可以做的。真正的问题在于你能做多少。想想什么是你想贡献给社会,造成什么影响。在我们的社会里,有大量的事情需要人们关注,产生影响。想想引发你情感的那些社会问题。从此处着手,寻找途径去加入关注那些社会问题的组织。

5. Do I feel satisfied?
问题五:我感到满足吗?

Most of us attribute satisfaction with work or material possessions. If we don’t like our job, we are not satisfied. If we don’t have the things like a big house, nice cars, or wealth of money we are quick to call ourselves failures. What we need to do is take a real look at what we define as success for our own lives rather than what others call it.
我们中大多数人把满足和工作或是物质财富联系在一起。如果我们不喜欢我们的工作,我们就会不满意。如果我们不拥有大房子、好车或是大量钱财,我们就会直接认为自己是个失败者。我们真正需要做的是,仔细看看我们是如何定义自己活的成功的,而不是别人定义的。

6. How do I want to be remembered?
问题六:我希望如何被铭记?

This is something I think about often when it comes to looking at my life. I often ask when my time has come, what will people remember of me? It may seem a little extreme but it puts things into perspective.
当我回顾我的人生时,这个问题就会出现在我的脑海里。我经常在我垂垂老矣时问自己,人们会如何铭记我?这看起来似乎有一些极端,但是这就是事实。

7. What makes me happy?
问题七:是什么使我开心?

If you don’ t know what makes you happy, that’s ok. A good way to start is asking yourself what makes you miserable. We know what we don’t like doing so identifying these things now is a great start to working towards the things that do make you happy.
如果你不知道什么使你开心?这也不要紧。有一个好的开始方式,可以问问你自己,什么使你痛苦?我们知道自己不喜欢什么,所以现在明确这些事物是一个良好的开始,去确定什么事物使你开心。

8. How do I look at today?
问题八:我觉得今天怎么样?

When you wake up in the morning, how do you approach the day? Your view on today affects your outlook on life. If you think negatively first thing in the morning, you will have no sense of optimism. Changing your perception will help guide you in finding purpose in your life. Ask what do I want to do today and put it into action.
当你早上醒来的时候,你怎么做的?你如何开待今天对你的人生观是有影响的。如果你在早上首先想的是消极的事,你就不是一个乐观的人。改变你的观念会指引你找寻人生目标。问自己今天我想做什么,然后将它付足于行动。

9. Can I have an impact?
问题九:我会有影响吗?

You can always have an impact if you choose to do so. But what you choose to do is a different story. You don’t have to be a visionary who creates a game changing product or a spiritual guru. Sometimes, the real measure of impact is the effect you have on a single person’s life.
你总是可以有影响,只要你选择去做。但你选择去做什么就是另一件事了。你不必做一个有有远见卓识的人,发明一种改变生产的游戏。你不必做一个精神领袖。有时候,真正衡量是否有影响,在于你对一个人生命的影响。

10. What am I waiting for?
问题十:我在等什么?
