I Feel As If I'm Meant To Do Something Great

Everyday for months on end now I feel as if I'm meant to do more in this life then what I'm doing now. As I sit and think the feeling grows over whelming. I get this annxious feeling like I need to be out there doing it but how can you do something that you don't even know what it is. I've only ever told one person about these feelings because I'm afriad to be judged and called a freak or a fake. Call it delusions of granduer or whatever I know what I feel. The one person I've ever told said that he thought I'm meant to be a leader. I have the confidence of dirt. I just wanted to see if any one was like me or could give me some answers cause I can't find any.

i am ment for something more, i have been waiting all my life to be recoginised for my skills. i can learn anything that can be tought. i can approach any situation emotionlessles, as a tool. i can completle any task and generate a plausable awnser to any question. i know they have been watching me. i just dont know what they are waiting to see...

It was nice to come across this message board. I am 30 years old and have fought this feeling my entire life. Sometimes to the point that it overwhelms me. I am meant for something more. I am meant to change to the world. I dont care if it is directly or indirectly. I tried to talk to others about this but no one understands. I have searched my whole life. I went into the military young. Got a law degree, went back to school to study astrophysics and now archaeology and nothing comes close to satisfying this gut feeling. I am in a sense glad that others feel this way but on the other hand I do not have any envy because it is a hard thing to deal with as you go through life. I hope anyone who reads this finds their answer and does not carry the same burden that I do.

I'm 13 I'm a guy and there's just something I can't explain like I'm special I can do much more I've been feeling for a quite some time now that I'm important and waiting for something I thought I'm just weird but when I seen this the 13 year old part Thats when I started feeling this way I'm glad I'm not the only one

Searching the internet for... I don't ever know anymore. Found this post by chance (or fate?) I don't know about "Do Something Great", but I do know that I am supposed to "do something special" at some point in my life.

I have come to a standstill - it's been slowing down, over the last couple of years, and I am now just waiting for "something". I guess that "same something" you are all talking about - I can see that I'm not alone (86 responses).

I noticed that many write that this happened to them them at the age of 13. And guess what... at 13 I knew I was "special". Very sensitive and emotional deepthinker. Always knew things before I was told, and things explained to me always just seemed logic beforehand, and had that feeling like; "I already knew that dude... somehow". Very strange. I am now 36, have been through depression, suicideattempt, angst etc. etc. I am searching, still, for the answer, but I am getting tired as the years go by. Either I will soon find the answer, cause I "feel" like I am getting closer. Or I will give up and sell the house, cars and what not, leave the wife and kids, and go life a simple life i the woods and stop worrying.

I have always feeled enlightened - allthough I did not know what it was/is that I knew/know (makes no sense, right?).
If I am chosen to "do something special", by God (or whatever) show me the path allready.

you are me, i am now 24. everything you wrote is an exact depiction of my life. can this just be delusions/mental illness they cant even diagnose me every phyc tells me a different story....

I was wondering if you've found out what it is you were destined to do as it's been over 3 years since the post. I have been feeling exactly the same and i'm looking for others who still do to - Please get in touch if you get this. Look me up on Facebook, Lynsey Richards-Castellini

Hi .is so refreshing to see that there are other people out there that have the same feelings as me. I have this overwhelming feeling that something great is gonna happen,but I don't know what.i find myself searching the internet for hours at time ,hoping that there will find something that will spark on idea or an opportunity .but I don't know why. I don't look for anything in particular . Sometimes I feel demotivated or distracted from getting things done or pursuing things ,because I feel that something is gonna happen anyway.i thought of seeing a psychic ,but I am scared that it could predict something bad to happen comparing with the great ,empowering feeling I have .
Thanks God I am not the only one at least!

I have had this feeling since I was a very small child, it's one one the few things I actually remember thinking as I grew up. I have had enough of sitting around and waiting for what is it I'm suppose to do and I'm hoping to find others who feel the same, to see if myself and other can finally figure it out, just what it is we're suppose to do. If interested, please look me up on Facebook, Lynsey Richards-Castellini.

Wow. That put into words what I've been feeling for months. I've tried talking to people about it and I feel like they don't understand what I mean.

This might sound kinda of flaky but the only time I have felt some guidance is when I have reflected on my soul. This can be through means of prayer or meditation or whatever you want to call it but believe me it helps. It does not cure the feeling. I still sit here anxiously all the time but when I start asking the universe (or god or subconscious, ect ect) to lead me, there is a huge weight lifted and things are clearer for a time. Give it shot, what do you have to lose?

Also I found this post and this article at the same time and its a great read - The 17 Habits of People Who Change the World

To all hear: I may not know all about the circumstances you're in, or what all is going on in the life you live; but you're not alone. I've survived brain cancer with no treatment, battled severe depression for six years, nearly died from medical conditions that couldn't be treated, been hit by a two ton truck, and many more, yet I am only sixteen. Having survived and not quite thrived through all of it, there is something so much more than this so called "life" that society offers. I'm searching for what is out there, to pursue what's in my heart and to not let that desire die. In no way do I want to sound like I am angrily venting or treating this like a therapy page, I just wanted to know and let you know that even though we're all sitting behind a screen, we're in a similar boat together. I agree with the first person saying it may be some delusion of grandeur, or whatever it may be-who knows? But to any and all who may be doubting themselves, sometime you may not see the full talents you have since you live in your own skin everyday, and you see your flaws. I know for sure and certain I always see mine, I doubt myself a lot. But individually you have something unique to offer this world, and only you can bring it. Hang in there. Strength doesn't always come from success; it comes from enduring hardships. To wrap it all up, you're not alone, there's something more than this life, so find God or what means the most to you in life, pursue your dreams, develop your talents, love life, and be yourself. I hope I didn't make this sound like a rant because that's not my heart; the intent was to maybe inspire one person or many, so if you got something from this, more power to you. Live a good life, friends. You're not the only one on this battlefield.

Ive been reading through quite a few of people's responses and there seems to be a large connection between what everyones feeling, its all quite similar. Personally ive felt it my whole life (as of yet ;P ) and have always had these 'vision' type things which turn out to be what actually happens to me in the future... Exactly... Ive told people but they just think im crazy... And believe me I know that I sound crazy.. But I cant help the truth, not like I see anything useful anyway, its just really random stuff...
Anyway... Ive always been a shy person until recently when I had a vision of me standing on a stage at a concert or something... Im not saying that that is gonna happen (I often have an over active imagination). Suprised at thinking that shy little ol' me could ever even begin to achieve that, I began to think, and with a bit of coaxing ive come to realise things, and even though im still shy, ive also become confident at the same time, and although I have no idea what it is that this amazing thing is that im meant to do, or how im gonna get there... Or even whether im ever gonna get there at all, im confident that this thing exists.
A few people have asked whether theres a Facebook group or anything, so ive gone ahead and set one up, seeing as no-one else is.. Id appreciate it if you mention the group if you comment here so that it doesnt get lost. Ive set it to secret, so you can post in confidence, it would be great for everyone to just be able to put how they feel about this! Who knows what could happen!
See you there! (sorry for all the writing :D )
Facebook group:

Feel like there is something that you need to do with your life? So do we!

If you cant find it just message me and I'll add you,

Yours in trust ;)

You're not alone I have felt the same since about a week before my eighteenth birthday that there's something more I should be doing something bigger, maybe something I should be doing that would actually change the world. I'm 22 now and nothing's changed but I have been researching other people that feel the same so we're not alone. I've been trying to reach out and see if we could come to a conclusion as a collective. But I understand now after research universal design or as people say that we have belief in something greater in life because we unhappy with our selves or even fate these are the many opinions given. I have also only told one person how I feel because of the of ridicule and they told me that I have a heart of a hero. If you would to discuss more then please contact me and the same for anyone else that feels the same, we're not freaks or delusional we are people that understand the importance of being better than we can be.

Wow... Really inspired to have found this page... We all have one thing in common... That thing is that we chose to search this feeling into a search, which is a step... Ive had this feeling since I was from the earliest age I can remember 7... Crazy I know... What I am saying is from this feeling, I feel I have been putting the pieces together bit by bit... The solution I have found so far is that what ever you do... Be the change you want to see in society/the world. You can interpret that in what ever way you want... No way is right.. No way is wrong... I have my own ambitions I always ask questions.. I always seek and from seeking I give... Thats an important one.... Ive started on that journey... The question is have you?

I also feel like this. I feel like I'm meant to be something great something extraordinary. A lot of times when I meet someone new I feel like I've meet them before and know the and have for along time

i know exactly how you feel. The annxious feeling suddenly becomes very overwhelming and you feel like the entire weight of the world is on your shoulders but you don't know what to do about it. i've told a couple of people but still no headway on the matter.

I have dreams that come true... I feel like I was put here to do great things and no matter what I do I can never seem to concur this feeling inside me. I feel as tho I was meant to lead. I follow the routines and regular life but each day I feel like I was meant for more like something is calling to me.

We seen to all have the same thing. We are ment to do something great, we can feel it in our bones to the center of our soul. Since we were young we felt different, we had the feeling we are ment for greatness. I also see 111 1111 114 411 and a few other spiritual numbers. Friends we will understand our mission soon enough. We left our place of peace to return to this physical existence to complete our objectives...Do you feel like a wolf amongst sheep? Or a wolf in sheeps clothing? There is a reason for the way you feel.

I FEEL THE SAME WAY :D LOL
or was until I realized I was like a car that has full fuel but no place I wanted to go. You should really find an outlet to express that drive because i think that thing can get you far :D
we should make a group or something :D here's my fb acc if ur interested

I love singing singing is like my passion i don't know if i'm a good singer or not. I feel as if i am meant to be a singer. But how do i fufill my dream and passion?

Has any one formed a group please Let me know I feel the same

Ever since i was little i felt like i was meant for something great. A higher purpose. When i was young i had many dreams of flying above the sky. After the dream i always waked up happy, free and full of energy. I think it meant something. Like the guy above i feel like i belong on stage or in the spotlight in hollywood or just simply inspire people. However i come from a poor and broken family, fear always held me back. As i become older my destiny seems further away and i don't know what to do with it. I like movies and music. I am a big fan of michael jackson, bob marley, bruce lee. they all have something in commen, they are all legends and had their own perspective on life. I don't have a great voice neither can dance however i recently signed up for the filmacedemie, i hope something good comes out of it so i can help my family and live a normal life. Like they say" as much as you want to plan your life, it has a way of suprising you with unexpected things that will make you happier than you originally planned". My advice to you is follow your heart. Do what you always wanted to do, follow your dream, stay focused and believe in yourself. It's the only way to be free!

Love god.

How do u find out wat it is

I am 13 my name is shane. Ok so I know everyone is going to think I am crazy but I have dreams that come true I have told few people this only about 2 and they call me the see'er god has not answered my pleading and I don't know who to turn to I just can feel something deep inside of me telling me I am ment to do something great and extreamly important.

see'er what do you mean by that?

Hi ,
i am also 13. I have not had dreams or any spiritual experiences. I am different to most of my friends. I see things in a different way, i am not an angry person , i am pretty much always happy , i have a joy for life , i see beauty in everything , i love the rain and new experiences. I am stuck in life and i feel i need to do something amazing , that i can achieve it , that we all can achieve it. I want an opportunity , i want to make a change. I want to be known for great things... What are the Facebook page names ?
lets be important and great because we obviously feel this way for a reason

i am in the same boat, i dont no if it is deslousion or what but i feel like am meant to perform on stage, its an overwhelming feeling of belong, i am very very very shy but if i ever was in a school play or dance performance i felt so much sercuity and felt very much right at home i wasnt nervous i was the most confident up there, problem is now ive put of loads of weight (no one wants to see everything wobble) lol! and my voice is not good enough to be noticed that makes me sad, if am not meant to be a performer why does it feel so right and over whelming

Trust me I feel the exact same. I've felt it for 7 years now. I also can't find what it is I'm meant to do. I've never asked or told anyway that I can recall. I joined the army thinking that was it. However, I feel like I'm meant for even more. It's killing me and I can't get passed it. It kills me on the inside.

Thanxxxxxxxxx god i am not alone........

I'm only 14 but I get the feeling too. When I see all these young people making a difference in the world, it just makes me think "what am I doing?" I don't know. I feel like I should do something. I don't know what though. It's a very confusing feeling.

u r not alone... i made page for that join it.. maybe we all together do something
