I believe what goes on inside our mind has as much to do with our lifespan. The will to keep living our own way and a sense of purpose are what gets us out of bed every morning. Money doesn’t always do it and family doesn’t always do it either.
So what keeps us moving forward and gives our lives meaning is purpose. All of us need purpose. It could be something noble, difficult or possibly something much bigger than ourselves. Something that pushes our limits. That test us and ultimately make us a better being.
What are the things you always wanted to do? Sometimes it can be the things you feel called to do? Or the things that could impact a positive difference in you and those you cared for.
To me, it is our healthy inspirational discontent inside us that matters most. It doesn’t matter if your purpose aligns with the goals, dreams or wishes of others. Your purpose is your purpose. You have to listen and serve that voice inside you. And there is no need to worry about what others think or make of you.
Purpose defines the vast empty space of our lives. It lends shape and color to our days and a driving force. It is an activity that we will overcome all obstacles to do it. And propels us to move confidently and proudly in the direction of our choice.
However, you can deny the need for purpose in your own life but, something else will fill that vast empty space of your life. I mean; rage, denial and possibly the sad conviction that this is all there is – you have outlived your usefulness and the rest of the days are just merely an exercise in not dying,
What you say to yourself does matter. What we say to ourselves can make the difference between us living small or walking tall. The images we hold in our mind not only influence how we feel but will also what happen next in our real world. Your point of view can change the most drastic circumstances into the most powerful of positive experience. So if the things you have always wanted are held back from you, please don’t fix the blame on others because it have everything to do with your attitude and altitude.
