The Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries restaurant is a simple, retro-style burger joint. The Five Guys goal is simple: To sell burgers of the best possible quality at all times. All they sell are burgers and fries. They are focused on one thing. That’s their purpose.
Here are three steps to discovering your life’s purpose.
Serve a higher good.
No greater purpose in life exists than to serve God. In fact, your life’s purpose to be truly meaningful must always have a God-component. We were created not to eat, breathe, then die. Or, to go to school, go to work, then go to a retirement home. We were created to serve God.
Discover your talents, gifts, passion, and personality to excel in what you were created to do.
Success often follows when a person gives themselves to the purpose for which they were created. Have you ever seen an Olympic gold medal winning gymnast also take the gold medal in the shot put; or the mechanic at the auto shop who also moonlights as an oral surgeon? It doesn’t happen. Everyone has a race he is created to run. Some run the 220; others excel in the marathon, while others do better in the sprints.
Consider this simple formula: Dream Big, Start Small, Get Going. At some point, we have to take action. One day a man hit a golf ball in the rough and several ants went scrambling. When the hacker attempted to hit the ball, he swung several times missing the ball. One of the ants, said to the other: “If we don’t get on the ball, we’re going to die.” If you and I don’t get on the ball we, too, will not find our life’s purpose
When we discover our life’s purpose, we will experience intense satisfaction and pleasure—the best of all feelings.
