“A man without a definite major purpose is as helpless as a ship without a compass.” – Napoleon Hill
What if you had 10 million dollars in your bank account, right now? What would you be doing differently today. And, by today, I don’t mean generally today, I mean right now. This very hour, the second after you read the next word. What would you do? Never thought about it? Have you ever stopped to ponder what your life would be like if you had already acquired the riches you are now seeking?
If you cannot see the end of the journey, you cannot plot the course to that destination.
Your life’s purpose and mission is important. Every person is here for a reason. We all have something to say to the world around us and something we need to accomplish. Yet, so many people simply wander through life, from job to job, relationship to relationship, and never reach their goals. Too many people lie on their death bed filled with regrets of all the things they never accomplished. Most won’t say it out loud, yet the thoughts are there in their mind as they lie helpless with no way of getting back up and striving toward them.
So, what is your Life’s Mission? What is the number one purpose in your life? Why are you here? What are the most important accomplishments you desire? And what are you willing to give in return for them?
Imagine you were about to die. I know its morbid and no-one wants to have such thoughts. But, we will all die at some point. What things would you regret the most if you don’t accomplish them by this point? In other words, if you were on your deathbed today, what would you be wishing you had achieved? Make a list. NOW!
You cannot answer these very important questions without establishing a Definite Major Purpose for your life. Not only is it important to answer these questions; write down the answers; make a plan with deadlines to accomplish your goals; But, realize you live at a time in history when you can reach heights of success like never before in the history of mankind.
Dreamers today have access to more information and technology than ever before in the history of the world. Are you willing to realize the opportunities that exist and use them to your advantage? You must be open-minded. You must be willing to embrace new ideas. You cannot be afraid of change. Never before has there been a more favorable time to be a pioneer than now, today! Before you there is a vast and varied landscape of opportunity, waiting for another willing participant to join the party.
So, what is your Purpose, your Definite Major Purpose? And what is your plan to fulfill that purpose? Will you back those plans with a Burning Desire? Are you willing to sacrifice to gain what your heart yearns for? Don’t be like the masses and keep wandering through life. Plot your course to reach that destination that the Mighty Creator has planted in your heart. Discover who you are and why you are here. Its time! Do it Now! For some there will be no tomorrow. Make sure you use today to its fullest.
