How old were you when you found your mission in life?

For those who found it, what got you there and what has it been like since?

This question is intended to help those who feel they don't have a mission in life, can't find one, or don't care.

tynamite's avatar I was writing a really long answer that was 20 paragraphs but I decided to post a succinct answer instead.

When did I find my mission in life?

I found my mission in life when I was eventually forced to become an adult at 16. The introduction of responsibility and expectations into my life, had stopped me living a carefree life as a drifter. I was at the crossroads, where the grades I was studying to get, would determine my whether I got into university or not - it would dictate my whole future.

From then onwards, I had to do something with my life.

There becomes a time in everyone's life, where they have to do something in their life, when they can no longer get away with doing nothing.

What is my mission in life, and how has it changed my life?

My mission in life is to be more influential.

Life is unfair, because not everyone is able to attain opportunities. I want to be in the right place at the right time, so that opportunities fall from the sky right in front in my face. I had a long think, about how I could get to the destination of opportunities. I figured that the only way to be in the right place at the right time, so I can have opportunities, is to be influential.

And that's why I everything I do is to influence people. Every action I make, takes me closer to that destination. More opportunities present themselves to me, the closer I get. It's a painstakingly long and painful process.

I was going to expand on this, to explain what my life has been like since, and how exactly trying to influence people works, but I decided not to, to save your attention span.

All I'll say is that some people seek attention, and some people seek influence. They both sound similar, but they manifest themselves different ways.

Last year I spent 4 months living on £10, and still managed to blag £350, from a freelance client, lying about having experience when I didn't. Life is hard.

It's a painstakingly long and painful process.

This week I'll be pursuing other things, elsewhere online and in real life.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
