Oh hello, Monday! Today, I am going to make you my biotch! We continue to talk today about purpose. I really do believe that every single person on this planet has a purpose to uncover. In fact, I am 100% certain of it. I believe that God put every one on this earth to be able to make mankind better. I believe that everyone has talents that were also given by God that can shape the world in a positive way a little bit different than the rest of mankind. I believe that every one of us at one time or another will be given an opportunity to change the world. I believe that every single person on this planet has a purpose to uncover, and when they uncover it, they will change their lives and the lives of many others. “Every person must look within to discover his or her purpose.”
John C says there are three questions you can ask yourself to find your why:
1. What do you cry about? “The first question asks you to look inside yourself and think about what breaks your heart. What disturbs you? What inflicts emotional pain? What causes you so much discomfort that you are motivated to take action and do something to bring healing to that situation?” I think this is a fantastic question to ask yourself. Let me tell you what hurts my soul. Watching men and women that are just getting out of high school wasting their lives away and not understanding their true potential. What else hurts me is thinking of my kids doing anything less than finding their purpose and dominating the hell out of it. The last thing that hurts my soul is thinking of me standing at the judgement of God and having him say, “I gave you so much talent. Why didn’t you maximize it more?” And because of those same fears, and those same pains, and those same things that hurt my soul, are the reasons that I have a motivation that can’t be stopped.
As I have said before, every time I talk about my purpose, I get emotional. It is at the forefront of my mind with every decision that I made. I had a really hard time getting up this morning. I sat at the edge of my bed for a good 5 minutes, contemplating getting back in my warm covers. And you know what got me up and got me going? Thinking of all the people I am trying to teach the importance of early morning self-development. And asking myself how I could preach with complete conviction if I did not get my ass off my bed when I was struggling the most. And so I did. My purpose was stronger than my problem.
