“What is my purpose???”
You know what this question is?
It’s a meaningless fu**ing question that hippies ask to make themselves sad.
A spoon was built for a specific purpose: To get food in your mouth.
A chair was built for a specific purpose: To be sat on.
A cup was built for a specific purpose: To hold stuff.
But those are inanimate objects.
Life on the other hand was created by chance and repetition. And only life that replicates continues to survive.
That means us humans have the exact same “purpose” as dogs, fish, plankton and trees:
You exist to reproduce and assist in the survival of your species.
Hey hippies and lazy bastards of the world endlessly searching for your purpose….there it is!!! The purpose of life has been sovled!
But see, froo-froo thinkers don’t want to admit this. The real answer is obviously staring them in the face, yet they won’t acknowledge it because it’s not the easy answer they wanted to hear.
It’s like asking a successful person what “The secret to success is.” The real answer is usually “A lot of hard work.” But that’s NOT what people wanna hear! They wanna hear some magic clue that lets them shortcut their way through the hard work.
So there you have it. The purpose of life is to reproduce and assist in the survival of your species.
Here’s breaking it down further:
If your penis/vagina is in functioning order, your original purpose is to reproduce:
It’s why young people obsess over fitting in, being cool, and finding love.
If you’re no longer able to reproduce, your purpose is to assist in the survival of your species:
It’s why old people like taking care of grand kids.
It’s why people feel so good when they volunteer.
If you’re not doing things that either lead to reproduction or survival of the species, what happens? You get depressed!
It’s your brain’s way of telling you stop asking what your god damn “purpose” is and go do something that gets you ahead in life or helps your fellow humans.
I’ve seen many people endlessly ask the question “what’s my purpose” and they always tend to get a little depressed about it because they can never find it.
They’re searching for something to give them meaning…..or something to give them “drive”.
What these people need is not a “purpose”, but these two things:
1.) LITTLE GOALS (this one is required).
You will get super-depressed if you don’t have a little goal. A Little Goal can making a certain amount of money, or finishing a project, or learning something new, or being the best in your line of work, or taking a trip, or improving your living situation. Your Little Goals will constantly be changing.
2.) BIG GOALS (this one is not required, but can be searched for).
This big goal should be so big that it can’t be accomplished in your lifetime. It will vary wildly for some people. A lot of people won’t even have one, and that’s alright too. Some people will have a burning desire to end starvation in Africa or some lofty goal, and that’s alright too. If you don’t have a solid Big Goal yet….don’t dwell on it….focus on your Little Goals first and a Big Goal will materialize.
So if you’ve ever been wondering what “Your purpose in life” is. What you’re actually looking for is a GOAL.
And your goals evolve and change in different situations.
If you live in a 1st world country and have a job, maybe your short term goals are to take a trip to the beach with your friends and finally buy that new condo you’ve wanted.
But if you just got kidnapped by deadly ninjas, your new goal is probably to escape. Your beach trip and condo probably seem like pretty unimportant things.
If you live in a horrible place with no opportunity, maybe your short term goal would be to beef up your finances enough to get out, or improve your community to be more like you’d want.
Your goals will be highly affected by your environment.
Your Little Goals will be ever-evolving.
Your Big Goals will be too.
Your “purpose” in life however will remain the same: You exist to reproduce and assist in the survival of your species.
When a musician is jamming the hell out….he isn’t moping around thinking “what’s my purrrpoossee?”
His Little Goal is: rock the hell out and entertain the crowd. And he’s fully engaged in it.
When a pilot is landing a plane…..he isn’t contemplating, “maaaan what’s my purpose??”
His Little Goal is to land the plane safely. And he’s fully engaged in it.
The mom juggling kids while cooking and cleaning at the same time isn’t thinking “What’s my purpose?”
Her Little Goal is to get her kids fed. And she’s fully engaged in it.
If you don’t have a Little Goal, then MAKE one!
-Be the absolute top performer at your job.
-Aggressively learn a new skill. Piano, coding, speed reading.
-Buy my KopywritingKourse and learn how to communicate ← survival of Neville in action.
-Start making extra money for a sweet trip.
Accomplishing a bunch of Little Goals leads to you accomplishing even bigger goals.
Since the purpose of life is to reproduce and assist in the survival of your species…..
Generally anything you do to improve your own value or improve others will make you happy.
You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
