Many a time we don’t get to the next phase in life/business/career simply because we have so conditioned ourselves as motivation driven being, and that nothing works without an atom of it. Get it right, I am not saying that motivation is a bad idea but the orientation behind it is bad; that’s why motivation doesn’t create a lasting impact on us.
“Humans” says Aristotle “are teleogical being”—meaning purpose driven. Nothing exist on earth without purpose. Purpose is the reason for your existence; the true meaning of life. Your life doesn’t count based on motivation but rather on purpose. Wisdom is discovering who you are and striving to become that you. Outside purpose, everything is secondary.
The first step to a great future is purpose discovery. Have you ever asked yourself Who am I? And why am I here? If you haven’t, why not take a minute or two to ponder over it.
Those who put their feet and write their name in the sands of time are those who live purpose. The history of the world is nothing but biography of great men who discovered their purpose of existence and followed it through. Purpose is the mitochondria of greatness. You don’t need motivation now. All you need is to find your purpose. As Jennifer Mualin rightly puts it, “To live without purpose is to render your life meaningless”. Motivation in a life devoid of purpose has a very short half – life.
Purpose triggers passion. Purpose is the reason for passion and passion itself is the greatest motivation of all.
Purpose is the reason for
With all these, we can fulfil purpose.
I will end on this note with the words of the Legendary Founder of Apple Computers, Steve Jobs.
“Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I love what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t find it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle for less. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Keep looking until you find your purpose. Don’t settle. You’re more than this”.
I say to you;
YOU ARE MORE THAN THIS!
