What is “a mission”? Not sure about the correct English term (in German I would call it Berufung, in Russian – призвание). In my understanding a mission is an occupation in which one can apply his/her talents at the most and thus serve the humanity.
Some people say it makes life so much easier if you know your mission.
I know people who know their mission but suffer from limited possibilities to fulfil it.
I know people with plenty of possibilities and no clue about their mission…
Where is the truth?
Let’s try to figure it out:
Now, after 2 days since I posted it, let’s see the results of the poll.
First question: Do you know your mission? votes – 21
yes I do: 45%
no, I have no idea -27%
not sure – 23%
other – 5%
Second question: Do you think it is useful to know your mission in life? votes -16
yes, I believe it is very important! -53%
yes, I think it can help to choose the right occupation/profession- 24%
no, I think it is better to try many things out and not to fix oneself on one path- 12%
may be it is useful but I can do without it 0%
Conclusion: It is good to hear that almost the halth of the voters know their mission in life! Although I suspect it is not representative for the world polulation. As far as I know most of my readers are seeking for the high purpose in life, are very introspective and deep people. No wonder many have found it out already. Intrestingly, no one wanted to do without a mission 🙂
