Purpose in life decreases risk of death, and have positive health outcomes. People with determination have better sleep, risk for diseases like dementia, strokes and heart attack and premature death reduce. In another study it was concluded that people with purpose in life have 15 per cent less risk to die than those who are directionless.

Islam gave us purpose of life. As mentioned in Quran
“Whoever works righteousness whether male or female while he (or she) is a true believer (of Islamic Monotheism) verily, to him We will give a good life (in this world with respect, contentment, and lawful provision), and We shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do (i.e. Paradise in the Hereafter)”

Having purpose in professional life is good, However we should do good deeds, helping others and meaningful activities to make life purposeful and satisfied.
