Reason for being

Abstract watercolor painted background

Something opens our wings. Something makes boredom and heart disappear. Someone fills the cup in front of us. We taste only sacredness.— Rumi

You were born into this world for a reason. You are here for a nobler purpose than just to eat, sleep, produce offspring, and die. You are here to make a difference. You are here to shine your light and leave the world in better shape then you received it. You are here to display the gifts you have been blessed with. You are here to use those gifts to make a contribution and create significance.

There is no one like you in this world. No one in this world can match your smile, style, or DNA. No one in this world can speak like you or think like you. You are unique, gifted, and special. Your gifts are tied to your purpose. Discover them and use them fully. When you do things you were born to do and use your innate gifts to make a difference, you are living and working with purpose.

When you live with purpose, you are energised and focused and have a sense of direction. Life Balance becomes easier because you are concentrating on things that are important to you and not wasting time on unimportant things. Your life has meaning, direction, and focus, and you are able to pay attention to your work, family, and spirituality.

Questions to Ponder: 

   Do you know the meaning of a purposeful life, and do you stay in this big picture?

   Do you have a clear, consistent and internalised blueprint for your life?

   Do you live an energetic life?

   Do you focus on your goals, or on your obstacles?

   Do you compromise your values and principles in pursuit of your purpose?

   Do you act on your dreams?

   Are you living a pretentious life or a purposeful and authentic one?
