Purpose

How many people go through life just doing what they think they should? Following along without thinking about what exactly it is they are doing. School to job, and then to family with kids, and so on and so on. The epitomy of the "rat race" that so many people just don't believe they are a part of. Why does this happen to so much of the population?

Blue suits, grim outlooks, and then in a final frustrated demeanor, a life dedicated to blaming others for their own plight. Gas prices are brutal, the government should do this and that, my boss is out to get me, and any other cacophony of worthless and impossible situations brought on by none other than themselves. Look around you, these people not only exist, they are the majority. Why?

Because they haven't got a purpose.

Purpose is the most powerful motivator in the world. Bar none.

Take the blue suits and look at them in the hobbies they have found they enjoy. Stamp collecting, train spotting, bird watching, or physical exercise. Their hollow eyes are lit up with fire and energy. Their souls are light and their worlds are fresh and vibrant. A purpose has over taken those moments in time.

Get that hard to find English stamp, spot train number 234567, get a glimpse of a yellow bellied heron, or feel the adrenalin after a great bike ride. All things that the mind contends are worthy purposes.

"Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart give yourself to it."
-Buddha

A worthy purpose is the only way that one must live their life. Make your job a part of your personal purpose and this will be a better world to live in.

Today is the first day of a life filled with joy and happiness because today is the day you stop, think for a few minutes, move yourself out from the "rat race" you are caught in, and discover your purpose for being here on God's green earth.

We'd love to hear what you come up with and what you think. What great things will you accomplish by following the call of your purpose. We want to see you shine, succeed and grow...

...because you live with a strong sense of purpose.
