Have You Found Your Purpose?
I once had a dream. It was one of those dreams that you remember for the rest of your life. It was so vivid and so powerful that I knew that I finally found my purpose in life.
In my dream, the world was “saved.” The world was saved because everywhere I looked, people were fulfilled. Everywhere I looked people were engaged, happy, loving, and secure. The dream I had was a world filled with a billion people on purpose. It was filled with a billion entrepreneurs. These people were making a difference in their families, in their communities, and in their organizations. They were people from all walks of life and all ages who didn’t preach, or judge, or condemn. They simply lived their purpose; and by doing so they inspired those around them to lead great lives. Lives filled with passion, determination, fulfillment, and joy. But their lives weren’t always easy. Sometimes they had to struggle to get through an issue. Sometimes things became much more difficult, due to circumstances outside their control. Sometimes it took years and decades for them to see light at the end of the tunnel. But they persevered with their purpose and passion. They overcame. They hit milestones. They celebrated victories.
This is a world of my dreams. I am sharing this with you because I am on a mission to make this a reality and I want to encourage you to dream and to find your purpose too.
Can this dream come true? In 1962, John F. Kennedy pointed to the sky and said he wanted to put a man on the moon. Less than eight years later, his vision became a reality. Today, more than 50 years later, a small group of committed people are pointing to a world with a billion entrepreneurs, one billion people being on purpose. Can it happen? Read this quote below and you decide:
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
-by Margaret Mead
If you are reading this, you are one of the chosen ones. You are blessed with the technology that enabled you to come across this writing. You are now blessed with the notion of a world with a billion entrepreneurs. I have a question for you: What are you going to do to find your purpose, and then live a life aligned with that purpose? We believe that when one decides to live a life aligned with their purpose, providence moves.
What is your dream? Have you found your purpose?
