A night full of dreams can lead to a day filled with purpose. Find your purpose and fulfill your dreams. Either way you look at this having a dream and a purpose are two major pieces to the life puzzle.
Purpose is your calling. Your gift to society. Your responsibility to yourself and those around you. Find your purpose and you’ll find your life.
Dream is that elusive thought that brings an ultimate meaning to your life. That far off distant goal that you don’t have the slightest clue how to reach. It’s the end of the rainbow that some how never appears or is in reach. Don’t lose your dream, build a plan to make it a reality.
Your purpose is the path to your dream. How you get there is the challenge. If this path is paved before you with strict walls, and few obstacles, the chances are you’re living someone elses dream. I challenge you to create your own. Those in your life will have an impact (positive or negative), but this is your life. A new path will not always be clear, and as you travel down it the dream may change, your purpose may shift. Once you’ve found both of them once, you’ll know the power of finding, defining, and refining them again. It’s the practice of life. Wrestling with the emotions that go along with it is all part of the process.
Be deligent with your dreams and purpose, and be flexible with the plan. If you stick with your calling and keep your dreams on the horizon, all that will stand between you and those are the plan. I cannot create your plan for you. I can support you and help you develop a plan. Coach you in sticking to your plan, assist you in modifying your plan should the need arise.
It all starts with you taking action. Don’t wait any longer. Lets get started!
