A void that needs to be filled and the thing that we could feel is our purpose. So, how do we find our purpose? Very simple, open your heart and listen to your heart. Concluding Paragraph: The purpose of life is a life of purpose. It’s where you do things that satisfy you. After reading Road to Purpose I realized that duty and purpose is not the same. Duty is doing or rendering service to the others because they want it or because it is right. While purpose as what I have said, it is where you satisfy yourself. Joy comes from giving without expecting anything in return. Even if the only thing you get back is your own satisfaction, nothing compares with the feeling of knowing that someone else’s life is a little better because of your effort. In life it’s so hard to find the real contentment, because sometimes we never

The feeling of making someone’s day and observing the bright smile on their face definitely makes me happy. Also with my experience, doing things I want to do is what makes me happy.

There are activities for everyone out there, no matter who you are to make you happy; you just have to get out and find them.

The question of meaning in life is a problem discussed intensively in different scientific areas such as psychology, philosophy, sociology, and even anthropology. This book by Susan Wolf offers a perspective which approaches the problem from a philosophical point of view. However, her focus is not on the question of the ultimate meaning of human life, as in some previous philosophical works, but on the question of how people seek and maintain meaningful lives. This focus shifts Wolf ’s work more to the psychological point of view, because it does not ask whether the world and human life has a higher purpose; rather, it asks what are the conditions in which a person experiences that his or her life is meaningful? Or, in other words, he or she
Dat T Critical/Analytical Response Where does one’s purpose lead them when the presence of motivation is absent? Motivation is what brings forth change within individuals to pursue what they desire most, it is what defines their purpose within a society and makes them who they are. William Shakespeare in the play, Hamlet, develops the idea that without the nature of motivations expressed upon an individual, they become blinded of their own self-worth as well as their purpose towards their ambitions, which will therefore influence their future actions. When individuals are presented with ambitions that they must fulfill but not what they themselves personally desire, it binds them of moving forward. Individuals having a purpose leads them into change, often times for the better; however, when someone else’s purpose is enforced upon an individual, it removes their personal intent for their future actions hence demoralizing the individual and leading them to their demise.
Throughout the course of one’s life, there is a constant search for some form of happiness. We may not always realize we are on the quest for it, but it’s part of human nature.

The meaning of life is whatever we choose it to be. We are in control of given our life meaning, it 's all a matter of perspective. If you decided you want to live your life a certain way and that way makes you happy, then you 're given your life meaning. The meaning of life to me is just to live a healthy, happy, honest lifestyle.
