As children, we are often asked what we want to do when we grow up, and very seldom do we actually know the answer with certainty.
In Asia, children often want to grow up to be doctors, engineers, and lawyers because they are conditioned to believe that these careers are the surest pathways to success. Learn more about Vijay Eswaran: http://interview.net/vijay-eswaran/ and https://www.facebook.com/DatoSriVijayEswaran/
Unfortunately, as a result of this, many children will begin to give up on their own interests and talents and as a society, we lose the next great musicians, or artists, and perhaps marine biologists. When a person develops a passion for a particular occupation, something internal begins to develop and blossom.
In order to find out your purpose in life, it is important to continue seeking that pathway, as life continues to grow through progress and forward movement. The mental shackles that we develop in our lifetimes are possibly the biggest prohibitions that we encounter on our journeys.

As humans, we are designed to move forward in every sense of the word. Even when you consider our physical bodies as human beings, we tend to lose our balance and our perception of the world can become distorted by moving backward. We often tend to regress to the past because it is familiar, but discovering our life purpose will propel us toward the future that we desire.
When looking to the future, it is imperative that you maintain sight of the happenings around you. While having tunnel vision is important to create focus when attempting to achieve a goal, keeping the blinders on that accompany tunnel vision can often cause you to miss out on the actions around you.
This can lead to many missed opportunities. It is important to utilize tunnel vision only at the proper times, specifically when goals are involved, but relying on this type of sight at all times can begin to inhibit your progress and growth because of the things that you will miss.
