Finding your mission in life isn’t a small thing. We are all searching for meaning and most of us are actively looking for the best way for us to contribute to the world. Your mission is not a small part of your purpose. It’s one of the big driving forces behind it. In this post we share 20 journal prompts to help you find your mission in life with you to do some soul-searching.
To get started, all you need is a nice journal to write down your answers in. However, something to type on works fine too!

We hope that answering these questions will help you get clearer on what your life’s mission is!
Also, you can answer the questions in any order you like. So just start with the one that you already started answering in your head. That way you’re more likely to get into flow and the exercise will be easier to do. 6
