Mission

Here is the test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: if you're alive, it isn't.
- Richard Bach

What is your mission?

Why are you here?

Ask yourself and you will discover who you are, where you will go and what you will be remembered for. Continue to wait and you will merely live out life. Passion for life is what people ultimately want. Do you want to live with passion? I sure do.

In a study of elderly hospital patients nearing death people were asked what they would do more of if they could have their lives back to be lived over again.

Over 90% said they would take more risks, take on more adventures and live life like it was their last day on earth.

I would translate that to say that they would live with an inner mission to explore, see what the world had to offer and offer back something themselves. I take that to mean they would find a reason to live.

Mission, mission, mission. What gets you out of bed in the morning?

You will never know exactly what direction your life will take you but if you stay true to your mission then it will be easy to make decisions and to live a life that is stress free. You will know what to do. You will know that ultimately you aren't ever done but with a mission your life has meaning because a mission can be left behind even though you can't.

Find out what your mission is and you will find purpose for the things you do daily, you will find passion for regular tasks and you will discover your truest self. Your mission will guide you.

Good luck on your journey.
