Your Life Role


Andrew Lawrence

Since the dawn of man, from the days of Adam and Eve, men and women have asked the mystical age-old question, “who am I ... and why am I here?”  We ask ourselves why was I born?  What am I supposed to do with my life?  What is my purpose?  What is my Life Role?

A Life Role is a special and unique something we are supposed to do in life. Something we were born to do. Our life purpose. Our destiny. It’s where we “belong”, where we “fit”. Our own role to play in life. Our Life Role.

Each of us on the planet has a Life Role. Everyone’s Life Role is different and unique to each person. One’s Life Role is customized to one’s own talents, motivations and principles. A true Life Role is not a career or standing in the family, community or society; it’s much more fundamental and deeper than any stereotypical role like mother, father, sister, brother, employee, boss, etc. Unlike the typical aptitude test which slots you into a conventional career (and thereby often jamming a round peg into a square hole) your unique and special Life Role encompasses and reflects what makes you you, the very essence of who you are and why you’re here. Your Life Role is unique and special to YOU.

Defining your Life Role and living according to your true Life Role is what gives your life spiritual meaning, and it’s how you achieve what you’ve always really wanted ... true long-term happiness and true personal fulfillment.

Do you believe that you are special? Do you believe that life has something special in mind for you? Did you ever feel that something was missing from your life? And you could never quite figure out what it was but you knew that if you had it you would be happy and your life would be more complete? Well, you were right! That missing link, what you’ve been looking for all your life, is your unique and special purpose in life, your Life Role.

How do you determine what your Life Role is? It’s a little tricky (if it was easy everyone would already know their Life Role). Think of it as the ultimate picture puzzle, where you have all the pieces but can’t figure out how the pieces go together to complete the puzzle, to get the “big picture”. Luckily, there are life purpose websites, programs and books available to help you discover your own Life Role and a number of them are reviewed at
