23 Powerful Questions To Detox Your Mindset & Re-Awaken Your Passion For Life

“When you have passion for something you find a way to make it happen—this is the key to success”Zig Ziglar

Inside each and every one of us lies a thread. A thread that connects us to our innermost desires, and is uniquely ours and ours alone. This thread never leaves you as it is a part of you. It follows you each step of the way, as you move through every phase and chapter of your life. Many of us feel disconnected from life, from who we are, and from what we are made of at the core of our being – our deepest and most authentic passion and purpose in life. 

We all yearn for something so fulfilling that excites us so much, that we cannot wait to get up in the morning and never tire. The truth is, it’s not so easy to find that spark. In fact, turn on the news and you will find every reason to want to give up. We are so used to ideas of what our lives “should” look like, or be like, that we tend to conform to societal expectations, and other people’s opinions, to the point that most people don’t allow themselves to live out God’s purpose for their lives. 

God has given us all great purpose! Our purpose in life is the very meaning of our existence, and without knowing this, we can suffer the ignorance of our own significance. We may fall prey to the belief that our lives don’t matter and that we have no connection or impact on the world around us. But the Bible offers many insights into man’s purpose on Earth, and why we must live intentionally with a meaningful mission.

Here are five inspirational bible verses for guidance in God’s purpose for your life!


  1. “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.” (1 Peter 2:9)
  1. “For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.” (Colossians 1:16)
  1. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)
  1. “The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out.” (Proverbs 20:5)
  1. “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:10)

23 Questions to help you reconnect to God’s purpose for your life

Let the following 23 questions inspire you and help you reconnect to your deepest core. Feel within and find out what truly makes your heart sing and your soul dance.


That one thing you absolutely can’t live without. What will your life be like once you find it? How will you feel? Who will you be with and what will you do? Most of all: who will you become? Feel within. What is your instinctive response? Not what you think you should say, but what your gut is telling you.

Let the answers come to you. It may take a few days—or you might know the answer right away. Either way, have fun with it!


This is your life, and it’s meant to be an exciting adventure. An exploration of your spirit man! The parts you didn’t even know you had.


It might bring out a whole new you, a whole new mind—and a different life.


How would you feel about that?


Watch your body’s responses. They will be much more accurate than the comments from your mind which is trained to parrot “proper” answers—not how you truly feel.

You might even feel some fear along with dread and apprehension, mixed with excitement. What a cocktail of emotions! Don’t fret—that’s an interesting part of the exploration as well.


This little exercise is about opening up your mind, letting your soul fly free and enjoying the ride!

We’re about to have a heck of a ride actually—are you ready? To be surprised, shocked and maybe even astounded?

Then here we go:
