The purpose of life is a life of purpose. Life is a precious gift that should be treasured, not something that should be squandered or wasted. You should start off each day with a purpose and use this as a guide and a road map to where you want to end up. When your time on earth ends and you look at what you did with the life that god gave you will you be proud or ashamed? Many people spend their days aimlessly wandering, without a goal or a purpose in mind. Some of the greatest people in the past became great because they spent every waking moment pursuing a goal and fulfilling a purpose. Madame Curie, Thomas Edison, and many other famous people had purpose in their lives and this gave them the ambition and motivation to succeed. Each human being can make a difference in this world, helping others and making the world a better place for all, but only if they live a life of purpose and goodness. Don't spend your time mindlessly playing video games or surfing the Internet for funny videos, get out and do something to create change for the better so that when you look back you know your life truly mattered.
