Many people often find that they can't discover a sense of fulfillment until they hone in on their true passion in life. However, this is typically easier said than done. If your spouse has been down in the dumps about his lack of direction in life, perhaps you should encourage him to seek his destiny.
That being said, there are a couple of tips you can give him to get him on the right track. O, The Oprah Magazine recommends taking the time to identify positive traits for motivation. For instance, you can encourage your partner to think about his admirable characteristics, then jot them down in a notebook for future reference. Whenever he's feeling down about himself, he can go back to these notes for inspiration as he pursues his life mission.
Next, Entrepreneur magazine claims that envisioning the future can be an effective way to uncover hidden passions and create a sense of purpose. Have your spouse develop a list of small goals he wants to achieve within the next few months to give him a starting point.
