Day #258:On Finding Your Purpose

There is a general notion about finding your purpose in life that makes us think there is a blackboard somewhere in the sky where it is written: IYIOLA ABRAHAM , very handsome man, born in Nigeria and destined to be ——-. You can insert your name and what you imagine you were meant to be suppose you believe there is this blackboard existing somewhere in the sky written by God and all you needed to do was ask God and fill in the blanks.

However, there is no blackboard.There is no hidden destined purpose you are suppose to find and fill in the blanks. Your purpose is what you say it is. No one is going to question you for choosing a path in life and committing to giving yourself 100 percent to that path which you have chosen.If it is what you love and what makes you come alive.

In the words of Howard Thurman: ‘Ask not what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive… then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive’.

So, stop wasting your time thinking one day you will receive a massive revelation about what your purpose is.As Steve Jobs puts it: ‘You’ve got to find what you love…..If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it’.

This I think is the key to finding your purpose.

  1. Hey eSZ, yes I did find my purpose. My purpose is to help people and organisations reach their full potentials. Thats what I currently do. It is the reason I wake up every morning.
