"What is my purpose in life?" That is a pretty heavy question that all of us have asked ourselves at some point in life. In fact, some people never quite figure it out, which is OK. The YouTube channel SoulPancake asked 100 individuals from all walks of life, ages 0-100, what their purpose in life is. You may be surprised by their answers.
Recurring themes with these participants were helping others and coming together to inspire those who don't have anyone there for them. One participant put it briefly in saying “I’m here to inspire other people to live life to their fullest potential,” which is what we consider our purpose in life. Our mission is to enable youth to develop positive relationships with caring adults who empower them to reach their full potential through mentorship. This is our mission, because you never know the impact you can have on someone's life until you spend time with them. You should never underestimate your ability to connect with another person, especially a child, because an encouraging presence is sometimes all it takes to make a lasting difference.
Watch the video for yourself and explore what your own purpose in life is. If you think a part of your purpose is helping youths reach their full potential, visit our Get Involved section to learn more about our programs and how you can be involved with Be A Mentor.
