Do you think your purpose evolves or changes over time?

Cody U.
A person’s purpose changes over time, like a purpose of a child is to survive long enough to reproduce, then young adults will reproduce and let the children grow. But at the end of the day, everyone’s purpose is to survive and reproduce. That is what all organisms are designed for. We are no different
Diana N.
Absolutely. Or at least, it should. Over time we grow and take more responsibility or less and our focus needs to change to adapt. Now that my kids are grown I am able to focus more on growing spiritually and personally. Before my focus was my children and I didn’t give time to bettering myself.
Erique P.
I believe my purpose evolves. The fact that I get to know more people that push me towards attaining my set long term goals. Also I'm able to control my anger and impulsiveness which has been an issue to me over the years. I'm glad I'm helpful to people I meet and discuss with. I'm also grateful for my life partner plus the current challenges which are coaching me patience and calmness in all life situations!
Neka N.
Yes, I do; I feel like as people we grow and within that growth, we change in many different ways, and our purpose also expands or gets smaller base on who and where we are in our journey.
Nadia N.
I think it absolutely can. Purpose is something internal – it’s based on our individual assessment of who we are and what we can do. That assessment is an ongoing, lifelong task – we need to regularly check in on these points with ourselves as our lives evolve and change. Sometimes, external circumstances force a change in purpose, and that’s okay too. Sometimes, our purpose itself doesn’t change, but the avenue we pursue in fulfilling it changes. The important thing to note is that, as with everything else in life, we have to find the right balance between being steadfast and flexible in conceptualizing and fulfilling our purpose. We need to be resilient in our mindset so we always have a purpose and a way forward.
Atticus P.
Yes it can do. Trying out new thing's every day or every week you may find new passions and goals to strive for. But always remember where it all started.
Nourhan G.
I think my purpose should evolve and I can also change things that I’m not happy with in life but my life purpose should continue to evolve on day at at time to become more confident, and more comfortable with myself and in my own skin, finding my purpose will help me achieve many goals I set for myself and get them down properly because I gave myself time to reflect on all the things I wanna change in life and excel in things that are in the process already.
Naomi Q.
I think it's a union of both. As our purpose evolves, our life experiences can adding new things, so the purpose can change too, even if it's just a little bit.
Dorina G.
I really think so. It is evolving just like our mind, body and soul.:)
I have heard someone said that if you have the same thoughts and beliefs like you had when you were 20 years old when you are 50 now, you threw out 30 years of your life.
Maria C.
Sometimes yhe circumstances may change the purpose but at the end the main purpose or goal is the same but the ways of making it are different
Livio Q.
i was trying so hard to follow all the rules for my daily challenge but i got bored or couldn’t followed as the time passed by. It didn’t even last for a week so i want to try all over again and hopefully i can make it this time
Onata Z.
Hmm…..yes and not. It depends on what it is, how big the purpose is, and who is backing me. Also, you have to stay motivated. Sometimes I'm not like that, unfortunately. Buy I strive to fight for a better, drama free, friends galore, activity full life!
Fns I.
Yeah I do think it does evolves depending on what your going and it will change because we’re human we do what we love what we feel makes us happ
Lya U.
I think it does. With more information becoming available and more avenues being explored. You slowly work out what is closer to what you want to pursue. Trying what you thought was it then realising it wasn't as you imagined can help close the door on different pathways. This process can be disappointing but it is less overwhelming having so many choices in front of you. Over time the excess may dwindle but where your passion truly lies will shine brighter.
Kim N.
Remembering what you are grateful for not what you haven’t got.
I do believe our purpose is forever changing & readjusting to our situations.
He seems this is why we are forever evolving and learn to be the best we can be and to make a difference were we can and most importantly just be present because at times this is the most important
Maria C.
So in the morning when I wake up I do a little mediation which helps get started and ready for the day then followed by that I do a quick 10 minute stretch course on this app that gets the body all flexible and stretched out. To the question above I believe my purpose will actually not only change over time but evolve significantly because these habits will form something special that I’ll be able to perform day in and day out with ease and feel good about myself. And I’ll continue to challenge myself also setting new habits and whatnot.
Sally S.
Of corse it is because when you grow up you must will change your mind and that'll make your goals and purpose wiser than before
Honey Z.
Yes it does evolve. Cause over time you gain in perspectives, new understanding and knowledge. Some of which make you realise that what you thought was your purpose was someone else words or pool in more knowledge on how to frame what you think your purpose is.
Albenise Z.
No, I think that who you fundamentally are doesn't change. You just discover or lose yourself along your life journey, more than once. So your purpose exists from the moment you exist. Its just not always clear to you what it is.
Carrie P.
Yes I believe it changes and evolves with me my life my family in general life itself brings changes so hopefully that could help with your question have a blessed day
Elna Z.
That’s actually a great question that can be answered many ways in my opinion. Someone’s purpose can evolve just by giving life and creating a family, someone’s purpose can evolve just by making someone feel good if you ask me. I feel my purpose evolve due to how much people appreciate me and can just think about me when bringing up great times due to me being a great person towards them, to me, my purpose evolves everyday.
Jay Z.
Depending on the person, and the task at hand, someone's purpose can change.
Or perhaps not. It is something that I too would like to know.
William R.
Of course it does. Whether planned or by surprise, your life changes day to day. Something significant enough can change your entire life and your purpose should change with it.
Rob G.
I had the same question recently when reading a passage from Choose Yourself by James Altucher:

"The fear that comes from not knowing what to do with our lives is a great source of stress. Yet there’s no reason to worry: some of the world’s most successful people didn’t find their true purpose until much later in life." in Choose Yourself – James Altucher on Blinkist

This suggests that stressing over your “purpose” is quite pointless. Indeed, some people never find their purpose. For that reason, it’s far more important to enjoy yourself and your life and do whatever work pleases you." – Choose Yourself by James Altucher on Blinkist

This makes sense, but is it possible that these “successful people” always had a conscious purpose driving them, but it shifted with time?

Sara N.
No I don't think your purpose change over time (it is what it is )and it does evolve. However your purpose gets affected by what you see feel, hear and experience that causes you to drift away from your purpose
