“Work for a cause, not for applause. Live life to express, not to impress. Don’t strive to make your presence noticed just make your absence felt.” ~ Unknown
THANKFUL today for purpose, for not only discovering that purpose, but having the courage to pursue and no longer run from it. Purpose can be a scary and tricky thing, but rest assured, it is a divine order and when you chase your purpose you discover your truest self and fulfill your every dream. Tell me that isn’t something to be THANKFUL for!
Challenging each of you to discover your purpose, what you have been designed and built for and then go after it with everything in you. You owe it to yourself to live out your dreams and live life to the fullest and ultimately, to be happy and THANKFUL for all that comes along with a life lived on purpose.
It is a double entendre when you really think about it. If you are living a life on purpose then you are (1.) living the life you were destined to achieve and what was meant for you since conception; and (2.) if you are living your life on purpose, you are intentionally making strives towards greatness, to discovering what life has to offer, and making a concerted effort to be all that you are supposed to be. Again, is a purpose driven life not something to be THANKFUL for!
Let your purpose in life define you and not life define your purpose. What you do in this world should make an impact, leave a mark, change at least one life for the better, and someone should be that more THANKFUL for having known you. Purpose can have three different meanings – to do something with determination, to have an aim or goal, or having a function, role or use. As you continue to live your life on purpose, it should encompass them all. Be determined to reach your goals as you aim for greatness while being used to enrich the lives of others.
Be THANKFUL for your purpose and watch everything around you blossom.
The time is here and now! There is no better time than the present and you already have everything you need. God has blessed you with a plan and a purpose. What are you waiting for? “Perfection paralyzes potential,” as I heard a wise man state and if you’re waiting for the perfect timing, perfect situation, perfect person, then you’re only prohibiting the possibilities and prolonging a self-imposed purgatory.
That job you’re seeking, go for it! The relationship you desire, pursue it! The changes you want in your life, start making them happen. The only thing holding you back is YOU. All the excuses and doubts are no longer. The only thing that matters is reaching your goals and the actions needed to bring those goals to fruition. You are powerful beyond measure and your life’s experiences have prepared you for this moment. You are ready, so please get out of your own way.
The only moment we will ever have is the present moment. Don’t waste or forsake it and don’t wait for another moment that may never come. There are three things in life that once they are gone, you can never get back – words, opportunity, and time. Don’t waste any of them. Let your words be the blueprint that answers opportunity’s knock right on time. There are also three things in life that never fail – belief, determination, and love. Believe in yourself and be determined enough to pursue the love burning inside you NOW!
