How Do I Know What is my Mission in Life? (II)

Question:

I've seen it written in the name of the Sages of Israel that since the beginning of time a "piece of the world" has been waiting for a particular soul to purify and repair it; that our souls come down to this world to find this piece and thus carry out this mission. How am I to know which piece is mine to repair and elevate?

Answer:

We never know exactly what our mission in this world is. Sometimes something seemingly inconsequential can have very important and far yielding results. So our approach to all positive things has to be—perhaps I was created just for this! Meaning, that when an opportunity to do something good comes our way, we should never dismiss it as "insignificant"; but rather, our reaction should be, "who knows if I was created for this very moment!" Imagine if we would all live with such thoughts all the time, what a wonderful place our world would become!
