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 feel just like you do , sometimes I feel like I'm special,Different to everyone else and i feel like I'm meant to do something big I have many theories and thoughts and I need to get them out there

I feel the exact same way! I'm 17 and I feel like I am meant to BE something bigger then what I am. When I think about it it makes me think of something in the supernatural sense. I am not sure if it's just because I have an interest in supernatural novel that has diluted my feelings or not but I really feel like i am not supposed to be... I feel like I'm crazy..

Your not crazy I feel the same way , I feel that there are certain people in the world that are different and unique but we don't know what to do about it I always have weird visions of me saving the world

I'm a young kid and I'm really starting to think that a time will come where I have to be a hero I feel like I'm special and different from others I feel like God gave me somthing and that I'm idk a chosen one of some sort I've been having some incredible cowinsendences I feel like there signs but j have no idea what I'm supposed to do I feel like an incredible disaster is coming and a certain amount of people are gonna be Heros and I feel like I'm one of them

Omg I thought I was the only one i feel the same way I don't know what to do about it tho

Omg..I feel the same exact way and I also only told 1 person .everyday I get that same feeling for a long time now I just feel lost like I'm meant to do something big but I just can't figure it out .

Hello,
My name is Edward Waldron. I'm twenty six years old and single father of two children. Also possess a bachelors degree in science( mainly in design). I have also have this feeling to this day and into the past of earliest memories. From what I can perceive and have read and complied. All information taken strictly as opinion in order to maintain the truth of what I'm supposed to do and expected there might be more of the like. From the gathering I have only come up with the first part of this riddle in our heads. Which is, we are all connected, some more than others. With each other and the cosmic energy of the universe. It is in my belief that the balance of the universe has been thrown off. So there will be a cleansing of sorts and there are a select few of mankind will know of this and are already prepared. It's the wait that makes it seem like your going mad. Like the feeling of knowing you are going to the zoo as a kid but have wait. Because it wasn't time yet and the park was closed. Those are my views, on another note I get random people that tell me their deep secrets and what they hide behind a mask. Have also been told of a past life and that I was an indigo. Hope this helps you and all others who seek the truth. Have a wonderful day.

One more thing I forgot in my post and hopefully someone replies :) but I feel like lately it's been getting more intense, and its probably felt like this for the past year idk just wondering if anyone else gets that feeling

I am completely new to this "experience project". In fact, I rarely get on blogs and chat rooms. I am 41 years old and have also felt this way for as long as I remember. Even back in high school, I felt like i was destined to do great things. Yet, even at 41, I am nowhere near accomplishing anything that makes me feel truly fulfilled in life. I still don't even have a career that I am proud of. Sure, i have a job, but it is unfulfilling, as are most "jobs". I don't even tell people what i do because it is so boring and insignificant. I also feel like i have let down myself because i have not accomplished anything significant to be proud of. I see people that I always thought I was smarter than and had more going for me than them doing seriously well in life, whether they have a high paying career or are doing what they love and are meant to be doing. It fills me up with jealousy because I am so far away from where I thought I would be in life. This empty feeling nags at me more every day because I know the clock is ticking and the battle to succeed is becoming more uphill the more time drags on. I wish I knew what my true purpose is, as a person who is living a life of discontent.

I feel the same way

So how do you find your passion and make it compatible with your goals?

I'm still looking I try a lil of this and a lil of that but so far I haven't found it and I just feel like I'm wasting my time and the older I get the worst it gets

It's so amazing to see that other people feel this way. I've always wanted to ask people if they ever felt like this but it is truly hard to explain. I'm 31 and as long as I can remember I've always felt this way. I'm always trying to figure out what makes me feel like this. I know I'm not crazy but it's a feeling I can't shake. Hopefully one day I'll figure it out :)

I'm only 12 and I feel the same way. It's like a need and want that you need to satisfy but with school getting in the way it's hard to cope with.

I feel the same and people are just attracted toward me. Like strangers come up to me and tell me im different and going to do somethin great and they can sense it. But also alot of messed up people like murders and people with anger problems and excons cause they just say i feel i can trust you and your nice and can help me.

I couldn't agree more with everyone that responded. It's an unexplainable feeling. It's like I come to work, and you know, act normal, (one of my skills, I can fit in to almost any social situation). I just watch everyone, and wonder how they're so satisfied with such simplicity, every once in a while I kinda wish I had that, but then it fades, as my mind wanders, and I know I'll never be able to accept such simplicity as my reality, and it tears me up inside that in all actuality...it is

Wow I know EXACTLY how you feel

I feel the exact same way and I have to say reading your post had made me feel better that I'm not alone with this feeling :)

Well at least I am not crazy. I get the exact same feeling. Also if you have the confidence of dirt...I have the confidence of a door mat.

Friend,
I am only 14 as I write this response, and I feel the exact same. I have this nagging feeling that somebody's gonna dig themself, and others, into a massive hole, and my brains, logic, and skills are gonna be what saves them, whoever they may be. I just feel like there's more...
Well, maybe I just play too many video games. I have a family, friends, even a girlfriend, yet I feel like I'm just waiting for the big shoe to drop. So, I know that feel. I just hope I- no, I hope that all of us aren't wrong, that we will do something great for everybody.

Hi there! I have this exact feeling every day, I am only 17 but I have this feeling every day and I have done for about 7/8 years. I am always made the leader of the group in projects, I captain the teams I'm in and generally I lead. I know I am no different to every one else but I feel as if I'm meant to do something great just like all of you guys! I just don't know what...HSP (highly sensitive person) is an extremely interesting concept and when I go to Uni, I'm doing psychology in an attempt to find out if I can find out why I (and all you guys) have this feeling.

I am so so glad I'm not alone!

Idk about you but I am extremely creative (can write novels and entire plays), very good with people and make friends with anyone I try to but I struggle with things like maths and things that require a lot of memory. I hate loud noises and I notice things in my surrounding environment that none of my other peers seem to. I live by a main road which makes studying nigh-on impossible due to the fact that I constantly hear noise e.g. birdsong, cars and people. In class I will always hear noises that no one else seems to such as paper rustling, making my friends joke I have ADHD due to the fact that I'm always looking around and unfocused.

I hate confiding to society's norms because I, like you, know I'm destined for something more than the rat race and I think together we can figure it out. If you feel the same as me, reply or drop a message.

I have ADHD and feel a lot of the same things you feel thats pretty cool. You couldn't have put it more spot on "I hate confiding to society's norms because I, like you, know I'm destined for something more than the rat race."

I know how you feel when I was in school I had the same problems even with math so you aren't alone

I know this was years ago but it's nice to see some comments from this year. I'm 19, and especially recently I've had a stronger urge to do more. Knowing there are THIS many that have the feeling is intriguing. Perhaps it is just human instinct to do more.. or perhaps something will happen and we are actually a minority who are meant to be able to handle what is coming.

The world is constantly changing, and new problems arise everyday, but considering the ages from some people, perhaps the ages are there for a reason - because it's in the next decade and those people would have much more capability. It's an interesting thought to go on, and I think it's too deep to just be some delusional thing.

Thats a cool thought, Im 21 in college and I'm thinking now about what I want to do with my life. I love music, beaches, sports, snowboarding and much more. If it were easy enough to right now move to Colorado, snowboard everyday possible, and live a great life while accomplishing all my goals and aspirations, I would. Anyway I have always good at math. Im studying engineering but unfortunately i'm a terrible student. Still, I love to learn and when I enjoy something I give 200% percent of my effort every time. I can ace my tests but i'll get a 20% on my homework average which will drop my grade tremendously. The point is that I have never liked the education system and as you say the world is turning. New problems arise and I hope that everyone here that believes they are destined for something greater can help change whatever it is they believe will need change in the next few decades. Hopefully by the time we all graduate from college, we make all the right decisions, and seize every opportunity so by the time those changes are to be made we can have the power and resources at our disposal.

I just feel like I'm meant for something more like I look around me and think is this all I'm meant for? And it makes me sad because I don't want to be another person who pays bills, works then dies. I want something more

You hit every thought, and feeling right to the t. It's something not easily explained. The best way I can describe it, is actually when the feeling hits me most often...when I'm driving a less familiar road, and reach my destination, not because the destination is wrong in any way, but for the simple fact that I dint want to stop, I just want to keep going. It puts me at a loss for words, which doesn't happen often

I need to know who you are.

I'm the same way! I'm not religious or really spiritual nor am I arrogant but deep down I just have this strong feeling that I'm destined for great things. Just explaining it to other people who have never had the feeling is hard and makes us look crazy lol

Ok, lots of people feel this way but I can't agree with the whole idea of being a leader. Of being bigger. Of a lifestyle change. I mean, YES, to a certain extent I agree, but NO! I don't know what it is but that's not what's calling us. It's bigger. It's way, way ******* bigger than being an advocate for human rights, animals, politics etc. This is different. Way different.

I don't know what it is exactly. I have dreams, but they're always different, and more unexplainable each time.
Embrace the unknown and let your mind wander. Nice knowing we're not alone right?

I wrote something above due to reading some comments about leadership, but you just took this to another level and I couldn't agree more. We see eye to eye my friend

Again, 100% agreed

Hey don't swe it I'm the same way I feel like I'm ment for more but I also know I'm not the only one there are a hole group of people out there that are ment for more too we just have to wait to find out what we need to do!!

I have the same feeling in all honesty. its not like an ego boosting feeling like i should be important its more like i feel I'm meant for a purpose yet its like my brain is to primitive to comprehend what it is. like someone else previously stated "something beyond what is known to exist"

It only matters if you have the courage to act upon that feeling. As someone who has been feeling this way for a while and acting on it i have noticed a 180 turn around in my life in a matter of months. I physically seen myself grow stronger more confident and more intelligent, but only because I have actively searched for opportunites to grow myself everyday. Looking back I could never return to the way I used to be because it was a lesser version of myself. I have started to view ever expirience as an opportunity to work on a skill or habbit. As Bruce Lee once said "knowing is not enough we must apply. Willing is not enough we must do." Take action today by promising yourself to better the yesterday, and then repeat everyday.

That is very inspiring I may have to take a page out of your book :)

Let me say I have had this feeling for a long time and that's saying a lot since I'm only 14 but I g
Have had this feeling for a long time probably since 3 rd grade I would always dream of ppl like me breaking in my class and do something the thing is I don't know what I want to talk to someone about this if u feel the same way please respond

Me too!

I understand

I find it kind of hard to put words on feelings, but I feel exactly the same way as you and all other guys here. I feel like I'm destined for something els, something bigger. I often feel like everything I do seems pointless. I feel like I'm ready to do something about it but quoting you "how can you chase after something you don't know what it is?".

I think that i somewhere within myself, I know what it is I'm chasing after, and it's really obvious, but I just can't see it right now.

I've felt this way too. What society offers is only a surface and doesn't seem meaningful. I get that anxious feeling like I need to survive and move constantly. I've started to train myself in kick boxing because Ifeel like my body is the only weapon i'll ever truly have and it must be prepared, for what? I do not know. But my instinct is telling me to be ready mind, body and soul. I feel like a "higher" version of who I used to be or more aware...

Add a response...

I don't know what this feeling is but I too have the feeling. But mine is a bit different than others. I feel like I need save up as much as I can, leave my loved ones behind and travel the world in search for answers. I also want to train my mind, body and soul through extremely rigorous training, adapting to any living condition and deep meditation. After this stage of my transformation, I feel like things will become clearer to me and my purpose in life will become clear. This could well be nothing but a hoax and something I may even someday regret, but if I don't atleast attempt this, I will not rest in peace in my after life. I don't tell anybody of these feelings, this is the first time I have revealed my true ambitions to anybody and I intend on following through with this plan.

Your plan sounds amazing. This is also the first time I've ever talked about this. I hope you succeed in all of your plans

Thank you, I will make it a reality. Good luck to you and whatever it is you have planned for yourself.

This is the closest explanation I've found to these same feelings! I have all of these traits and the same "symptoms" as all of you here. It sounds crazy but I really do. No other way to describe it then what's been said here.

Thank you for the link to indigo adult. I have read about indigo children...

Its 1:38 am and im going insane trying to put in my words and search for answers of how i am feeling. Im glad im not the only one. What i feel is intense and it judt hit me for about 8months now and its getting stronger and stronger. I can feel so many new things theres no words made to describe it.i feel like i am of the many chosen one. Please email me if you feel the same way i would like to seek help and find out more about this feeling im feeling. Please email me at serligee @. Ya hoo . Come

If you feel your meant to do something start doing all the things you've always wanted to do. And somewhere along the way, youll figure out what it is and it will all make sense x Good Luck

READ THIS: i feel the exact same way as most of you, the thing you think you seek or extraordinary feeling you get inside of you is actually probably somthing called gradiosity, Grandiosity refers to an unrealistic sense of superiority. try to google it and se this feeling is not so much supernatural as you thougth. ;)

I know the feeling.. I feel like I'm meant to do something.. I feel like I'm meant to do something big, like discover something in space.. I'm really interested in astronomy so I feel like I'm meant to do something in space.

I

I know how u feel I am the same as u

So what is it I am meant to do then as I feel it is something beyond what is known to exist

Its amazing coming across this site and finding out so many people feel the same way I do. If I would try to have a conversation with any of my day to day friends about this, they would look at me like they're trying to understand, but I know they don't. I also do not want to seem as though I'm a "special" person, but I also feel more enlightened than most that I come across. One thing I recently came across is that I would definitely fit into the category of a person who is an HSP (highly sensitive person), anyone interested should look this up. It would be interesting to see if anyone else having these feelings falls into this category as well. I have previously felt an extreme sense of heightened awareness as well, but have since pushed that away, as it is not something I felt comfortable with, I started to feel more and more distant from what we would define as societal norms. So I just tried to stop feeling "different" and focus on school, work, son, becoming an educated and normal person. However, the feeling has returned again, an overwhelming sensation that I am not just an average person and that I am meant to do something great and shine. I have since quit my job that I was tired of, have separated from some so called friends(and feel lighter), have focused my main energies on God, church, helping friends, family and homeless(I have so much empathy for the lost and forgotten it hurts) and am desperately seeking to fulfill my purpose in life. Although I know I have had a significant impact already in people's lives since I was a very young child. I have also been touched by some wise and valuable people and experiences in my life. I would love to gather with everyone here and talk with each other about our life experiences and our "feelings" to hopefully get a deeper understanding of what they could be stemming from. I wish everyone well on their journey in life, God Bless All of You, and may God reveal his purpose for all of us in a real and tangible way!

I have been having the feeling for all my life like I'm here for a reason, like I'm here for something really big. One thing I find very strange, creepy is about a year ago a random guy stopped me on the road and said " I know your going to do something really big" he also proceed to say "when your in your office just remember me when I come there". Another thing that I find really weird is that he handed me money and said " take this anytime you want money or anything just come to me cause I know you'll make it and when I see him always say what's up". I find this really strange btw I see the guy more often and sometime he tries to hand me money and I would refuse but, he would force me to take it. That my experience on the feeling or greatness

wow that's pretty interesting.

So more people feel like this than i thought....maybe im not crazy, or maybe we all are. Either way, if something does happen i feel like im ready, and still have no idea for what.

i've shared this feeling for around 8-10 years now. Sometimes its more intense, other times its very dormant. My family is very spiritual and claim they've seen spirits and such, and so i was spiritual as well as a child. Unlike them however i have never been able to see spirits, or anything special like that. It kind of felt like i was trying to make myself see or feel things when i never really did so i discounted the whole thing. Even though i tried to just ignore the whole spiritual thing, i still get this feeling of being something else. Maybe its just the feeling of not wanting to live a mediocre life, the thought of just working day in and out kills me, but i pray everyday that this feeling will actually lead to something out of the ordinary. I dream and day dream all day of what might happen to change this world. i know this response isnt as uplifting as others. But i am starting to lose hope after 8 some years of waiting, and waiting. Im also starting to think this feeling might just be something dumb like depression or something. But still something keeps me going.. waiting for whatever it is WE are waiting for. And if the thing we are waiting for does involve all of us collectively, i pray you all succeed and i see you all there at the end. sorry, now im getting all cheesy and ahead of myself.

I usually stay up past when my wife and kids go to bed as my job has done that to me. I have been watching a great deal of historical and scientific television.
While I couldn't imagine doing anything greater than being an amazing husband and father, I feel like a certain HUGE restlessness has developed over the past 6 months. Like my physical being knows something much larger than myself has plans for me that are coming soon, but never seem to manifest. Or perhaps the proximity to my actual point in time is farther than I think.
I would love to think that it is just boredom, since that is easily remedied, but these thoughts have permeated my thinking while at work, at home, having fun or doing whatever. If anyone had the answer, I suppose I could just google it. But something inside me knows it's coming and is restless enough to not allow me to miss it. I know I will know it when it comes, something in my very being will be immensely satisfied.
When it does happen, I will let you know. Thank you for listening.

Av had this feeling my hole life, i love history and ancient battles, feel angry pain feeling of los. There is a answer.

I have been having all of these same feelings and I don't know what they mean. I will pray and meditate for guidance but it's very hard waiting and wondering what I'm supposed to do. I guess only time will tell.

Curious how quite a few people with a feeling of destiny at the same time claim to have some form of a lack in social skills.<br />
<br />
I have found that one thing that obsesses me, and am now in the process of turning it into something great. Whether or not it will succeed, as of this moment I haven't got a clue. Even though in my mind, it has already succeeded; in practice, it will take the bigger part of my life still to finish. It has however become big enough for me to decide to completely drop a big part of what people consider the 'normal life' (social events, travelling, having children, etc.), and instead use that extra time to work on my goals. I work under the assumption that with great power, comes great responsibility; and to achieve great power, requires great sacrifice.<br /><br />Seems like spiderman was right all along.

I am a person who still needs to learn a lot about the world and everything in it, but I'll just share what I learned already:
- It is true that a group of people can perform a lot better than a person alone. As some other people here have said, if you don't know where you're heading yet, try to make sure you're not going there alone.
- Find out what types of people you can trust. For that matter, since it is different for everyone, find out what 'trust' means to you.
- There will never be a point in your life where you have learned enough to keep going without learning more.
- You will keep running into things that seem impossible. Just keep in mind that "impossibility" doesn't exist. It means nothing more than that chances are very low, and you have to find a way to improve those chances.
- Never try to find something or someone to blame. Just focus on finding a solution and get on with it.
- Nobody will truly believe in you to do something great until you have actually done something great (no matter what they say). The only person capable of truly believing in you is you.

I agree with everything you said

Yh I feel the same thing but only stronger like I can't explain it with words it something big... Bigger than anything oh my god I want to know what this feeling is I feel this like everyday in my life someone said its indigo children but I don't understand what the hell is this feeling please help and tell me?!!!!!!!!!!!!

U put in to words how I'm feeling at this point in time, feels really strange. Did u ever find your purpose to the feelings?

Not yet though I have decided to go down the path of becoming a teacher. I don't know why, but it feels like the right thing for me to do. I'm going to teach history, because I believe it's important and I have a passion for it.

I've had the same feeling as all of you for as long as I can remember. We can all sense something big is coming. Something the world has never seen before. Life doesn't happen in a neat packaged form like in the movies. The callings we are meant for will find us, but in the meantime get ready. Get your life in order, and be prepared for anything. Get in shape, do the things you want to now, and enjoy everyday. For the past two years, I've felt as if the world is going to experience loss and suffering greater than we've ever seen before, and it's people like us that will need to rise to the occasion when everyone else is paralyzed from fear and uncertainty. The people who are satisfied with the mediocrity that exists today will need leaders and guides. We are those people. So stop letting your purpose deflate you. Use it instead to fuel you. Prepare your body and mind for what's to come, because now is the only time we have to get ready. Most importantly, love people and form meaningful relationships. We cannot accomplish our purposes alone. Only together can we hope to achieve greatness.

I agree I fell as if something big like that is going to happen and we will be the people leading them and helping them.

U are right av felt the same thing for years, but i hope i don't live though whats coming.

You are not alone.
I have doubted the feeling for a long time since i could never tell if it was the societal pressure of achieving 'success' getting to my head, whether it was a grandiose delusion my ego loved to play with, or whether it actually was fate i was staring straight into the eyes of.. All i know now is that i must tune in to things i cant see but are manifested metapysically, in my mind or by what you call collective conscious energies. I feel as if there always has been one path for me.. Because i never saw an alternative in the first place.. I never actively went out my way for spirituality or anything remotely close but now im pretty sure that it's the only way i can answer these questions i have for my existence.. If this is how you feel, rest assured, you are not alone.

I as everyone else so far have this feeling too. I'm 14 and feel as if I'm destined to do great things. Schooling has failed me in my life, I feel as if the path I am walking is not mine too many people have walked it and it's my time to change. When I think of God I don't think of Christianity, Islam, Judaism or Buddhism I think of god as a being that cares for me and people like me I feel as if God has created this for me and I'm meant to do great things. We as a group a growing in numbers. We are going to be the next generation of scientists and visionaries we are going to change the world but only if we join together. I have special abilities I have an extremely fast response time and when moving through an obstacle I'm able to identify and avoid anything dangerous. When I dream I dream of changing from me into a form of light, a light so blinding that I'm brighter than the sun. Our time is coming... Get ready

What are we supposed to do though? ive been focusing on that lately and i need an answer soon. I feel like we are meant to figure that out on our own, but i need to be pointed in the right direction or something because i have no idea where to start looking for where i belong and what imeant to be doing.

I'm a 17 year old High School student and I've been experiencing the same things. For a few 8 years or so I've been having the feeling that I'm destined to do something BIG, something beyond the "normal life". I'm quite good at studies, especially foreign languages and math, my social skills are very low, my intrests in things are quite low too. Feels like the "normal" things that excite ordinary people don't exite me. And it's not that I feel like I'm better than others, infact I' m kinda shy and a bit on my own because I see that everyone around me (the persons i label as ordinary (not in an offensive way)) has a purpose or a passion (often I get the feeling that these "ordinary people" can't see beyond the life the society put out for them (just like in the matrix)). And I get the feeling I should be doing something incredible and helping others or save the world! The feeling is getting stronger and stronger and it's depressing me in a way because others around me are happy with the society life, but i am not. I can't live an ordinary life just work, eat, sleep. There must be something greater. Something like an adventure almost magical (not that I believe in magic or stuff like that). I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking like this. I've asked some friends of mine what they think about life and they say it satisfies them. They think I'm spoiled by the way I think. But im not. I can't watch superhero movies too because it stresses me out. Seeing how their calling gets satisfied and still I'm waiting and going crazy because I begin to doubt my feelings.

I'm feelings the same as everyone here, lately these feelings are overwhelming and keeping me awake, maybe it's finally our time to.do whatever it is that we are ment to.

OH MY GOSH I FEEL LIKE THIS TOO

I feel like I could take a few dollars from each and turn them into millions. Not in a bad way... I mean if I could, I'll make sure you get paid back through the interest. If you're keen, I'm ready to start or join the long awaited group

Life sucks. God or no god, after a short period you're dead and gone. We all try to make sense of and justify our lives. I don't think that justification exists. That's no reason to not enjoy life for what it is. Look at the pretty things, revel in the good times and in the bad realize that someone somewhere has it worse. Just live. **** everything else.

Like most everyone here, I have had this feeling too. For as long as I can remember I've felt buried by the restrictions placed upon us in this world. Not in an arrogant fashion, but I've always felt better than everyone else, like I'm meant for something while they're just following footsteps on path meant for nothing. I've never been that keen on doing well in school for that same reason, I feel like I need to be walking a different path than everyone else. That's not to say I'm unintelligent though, I've always felt intelligent on a more intellectual level, even though I'm not the best a say, math or chem. I can even relate to all the posts by people saying they have visions of the future. I can't remember my dreams much anymore but when I could, I saw the future all the time. And then to those of you who have mentioned seeing themselves on a stage or feeling like you should become actors, I had never felt the same until just a few days ago. In fact it was just after I saw The Amazing Spider-Man 2. For the past week it's all I've been thinking about, I can't get Spider-Man out of my head, I can't get rid of the idea of Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. I've been this anxious, half-depressed mess since I saw the depressing film. I kind of think it's some extreme case of envy of Andrew, or an overwhelming urge to save lives. I always thought I was the only one that felt this greatness building up inside but if there are others like me I really think we should get together! I think we have traits to offer the world that are serpressed by the standards we're forced to live under. I think we're meant for something bigger, something greater. I haven't checked any of the Facebook pages yet, but I personally think it would be better to get a group chat going on our phones, considering I don't really even use facebook anymore. I don't want to just through my phone number on the internet without a little caution but if anyone is iterated please respond to this.

Feelings more than mutual. When I read what you said about spider-man 2 I almost **** myself. I came here because I was thinking about spider-man 2 and the feelings I had after that and throughout my life. That movie really resonated with me because you know Parker and Garfield are both living to their fullest potential. And I'm just sitting here. I don't know what the greatest thing to do is, but for now I don't think about that. I just think about what I can do, and that will eventually lead me to where I'm suppose to go. I'd love to get into contact with you. Idk how but I know other people on a personal level that are on the same path, and were trying to figure it out. There are no coincidences

I feel this feeling too, maybe not exactly the same but who is? Anyhow I've felt it even stronger lately. Maybe we are due for change. Maybe it's the places maybe it's people. Good hell maybe it's the things. Change is good. Don't ever let them keep your change.

Well, I'm glad to know it's not just me. I've found that I've had this same feeling for as long as I can remember. As well as the feeling, I have a lot of the same abilities/traits/experiences described here: Strong Intuition, rapid learning of ANYTHING I want to learn (but also rapid loss of interest in everything after a short while as well), always being far more mature than others my age or far older people, coming by a high level awakening naturally (wouldn't go so far as to say enlightenment), my life slowing and grinding to a halt (almost as if I'm being forced to wait for something). Like many of the other responses, as well, it's not a matter of thought, but feeling. I don't have much self esteem, and logically the feeling seems stupid, but it's too overwhelming to ignore or disbelieve. I have to wonder now, though, with so many of us, what it is we are meant for, and when our time will come. I've begun feeling lately a little anxious lately, too, like I'm about to step in front of my grade 8 class and read a speech. I think our time may be coming.

I am turning 16 day after but i already feel a 100 year old and yet i think that not one thing i did in my life has been good enough. I dont know what justifies my life. I believe in god and have always believed he has a purpose but i cant reason out his idea of making me... Its not tht i am useless, i am quite good in studies, music dance and art, etc, quite a star student but i cant pinpoint any one thing in which i a REALLY good at and the thing i like. I feel lifeless or omnipresent sometimes, i always have these intuitions befor something happens which are usually (always) right. I feel i am meant to do something and until i do it, i wont be in peace. I tried to focus my energy to what my fanily liked but i failed miserably which makes me think something is not right and i am not on the right path. Thanks for letting it out. I welcome all suggestions.

I'm 15 years old and at some time in my life I've realized that I'm good at lots of stuff. Like dancing and singing; numbers and quemistry; analyzing and construction; even writing and drawing. Only thing is that I'm naturally cold hearted and pretty emotionless. My social skills are actually non-existent. I feel like I'm meant for something great. Maybe it's just childish dreaming to make myself feel better; but I can't help thinking it's true.Nothing satisfies me. Everything is just so... easy? Unfulfilling? Maybe I'm meant to almost not feel anything. But, there has to be something that fills me, right? Something fulfilling that will help me feel anxiousness, even exitement. Something SPECIAL. even if it leads to a lonely life, I want to feel the thrill of wanting something, that longing that's so clear on each of my friends' faces. I wish to experience that. :) thank you for giving me the opportunity of letting that out.

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.

I don't think we need to wait much longer. Along with the rest of it, an anxiety has been washing over me lately (not bad anxiety, more like excitement mixed with stage fright). It feels like I've been waiting forever for this, and now my name is next to be called to read my class speech. It's as powerful as the destiny feeling sometimes. I definitely believe we'll get the answers we've been waiting for and be set on our path very soon, maybe by the end of the year, maybe sooner.

Steff, I felt the same exact way for years. I also knew I was different. At times I would even consider myself depressed at times. I took a chance and succeeded. People like us are adrenaline seekers. We are not content with the basics in life because we were meant to accomplish more. You need to be great. This world needs you to accomplish something amazing. So do it. Do it! You can be or do anything, it just takes a lot of time and effort. The greatest people in the works didn't become great overnight. Some of them it took a lifetime to accomplish. You're a star. Be what you were out on his earth to be.

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
