I bought the book purpose of life by Dan Milman. It is explained in this book that depending on our birthdate, we all have specifique life purpose like: creation, expression etc...
Once you get over the obstacles that are between you and your purpose of life (like my case, my obstacle to accomplish creation is self confidence) You're an accomplish being. Even if my purpose is creation I can be good in other categories, but it will be less natural and easy.
Untill there, I found that interesting but there's a little part of me thinking that this concept goes in contradiction with Abraham's teaching that I realy love: THERE'S NOTHING THAT YOU CAN'T DO BE OR HAVE. I also tought that the reason why someone plays piano in a easier way than another was because of his tought pattern, interest and confidence in himself..
And on TV today, there was another guy who channeled every night. I don't remember his name.... But he wrote a book in french "message de l'au - dela". In his interview he said that if you want to have a lot of money, but to accomplish your life's purpose you need to be poor to develop a specific strenght, you won't be rich till then... Is this going against LOA? To me, this way it seem's like we must do things and not just allow....
Well my perception of this may be wrong because I feel so good when I read Abraham's teaching and even I'm not a master with LOA, I made good progess at understanding why things happened in my life!
So what do you think about this long question ;0)
We are all born with a tendency toward specific talents or competencies. Some people are good at math, others at music. These talents are wired into our genes, and while they don't determine our destiny, they do give us a path for maximum possible creative expression during our lifetime.
The difference between the person who has never seen hardship and the person who has experienced hardship and overcome it, is that the people who have overcome hardship understand what hardship is and how limitless the possibilities of life are, because they can see the contrast between poverty and abundance.
They also understand more clearly that this transformation has mostly to do with the choices people make for their own lives, not the limitations the outside world seems to impose on us. That is what the French fellow means when he talks about the strength of developing your life's purpose. People who overcome adversity are more resilient than those who don't; they accomplish more in their life because they understand the importance of making good choices and decisions.
That said, you are correct that confidence improves your abilities. Many people get this backwards, and want to be competent before they are confident; they want to understand something before they do it. Children are not like that; they do it first, then they understand it.

Everything starts with The Source. So, I think ultimately it is Source...that has "purpose" ..which is reflected thru our desires that we create/attract in our life. I think our purpose is to create, expand, evolve and "transmit" this experience or feeling back to The Source.
There is duality in all things..as above, so below.
Just think of your body. Your liver cells have purpose and function. Singularly a liver cell is insignificant (but has the same power as the whole liver), collectively these cells are quite powerful and necessary. We can substitute a heart or skin cell and get the same results. The organs work together in tandem, to support the body...which supports the brain. The brain directs the entire concerto in a very effortless way..and gets relevant feedback. All our cells working together (billions)...is the base of our physical experience.
Your purpose in life...is that something that "drives" you to do the things that you do....and to desire the things that you desire. You can't help it, to do your purpose...no different than a liver cell can do the function of a brain cell. Different programming, different purpose... even though they are of the same one source dna cell.
We live thru our body, like Source lives thru us. We (humans) are some of the cells of Source. Programed with a general purpose "To Serve Source"...just as the cells in your body serve you. The actual breakdown is almost immaterial. There has to be unlimited viewpoints (human purposes)...in order for Source to be and experience all things.

I know this to be true my friend and the discovery of that purpose means everything to the full quality of life we all desire to live.

Our purpose in life is to create, recreate, and to manifest our personal desires as we see fit, leaving no stones unturned!
