The Infinite Power Of Purpose – Are You Using It?
Well, 2016 has begun…
Have you set out what you are going to do with the next year of your life? What it is that you want to achieve in this timeline?
Have you decided how much you are willing to sacrifice to achieve your goal?
Have you ever even asked yourself that question? I have been asking myself that a lot lately.
I was starting to feel too comfortable… So I have made some new commitments for myself. (translate as BIGGER Goals)
It is very important that you identify your willingness and commitment to reach your dream before starting to pursue it. It is critical to your goal setting program. Decide right now how much you are willing to give in order to get your goals.
Vince Lombardi, one of the greatest football coaches of all time, once said, “The difference between a successful person and others is usually not a lack of strength, nor a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will!”
Oh, hold on a minute. Let’s back up a bit.
First let me ask, “Do you have a Dream?” Is there purpose in your life? Have you made any real commitments to yourself?
When things get tougher, and they will (they always do), the thing that most distinguishes a successful person than others is the level of ‘WILL’ he has.
That determination to follow through with your proactive first creation that was decided in advance, and does not succumb to how you feel at any given moment. Your will is reinforced by the power of your purpose. Your purpose unleashes your passion for living and creates meaning for your life.
Are you living a meaningful life? If you are, then, “That’s AWESOME!” If not, why not? And . . . why not start right now?
When you are passionate about something really big, you will have the will to overcome just about any the difficulties that will confront you.
If you are missing a clear purpose in life, then your willpower won’t be by your side, working for you, when you really need it. If you are living a dull life, your will won’t be of much benefit to you. Your power will be weak.
You need a strong will to blast past some of life’s challenges, and to gain that will, you must follow your own unique path and do what you are meant to do in this life. Then your power increases exponentially.
The more you are committed, the more you are determined, and the more you are persistent, the more you will succeed. Purpose is necessary to develop this kind of real willpower.
Before we achieve massive success, we usually pass by moments of desperation and failure. Those who rise again, those who have the will, and those who persist no matter what, are the clear winners.
We all face obstacles in our journey to achieve something that is great and worthy. The true winners are those who have the will to overcome those obstacles and are most passionate about their dreams.
Remember then what Vince Lombardi said, “The difference between a successful person and others is usually not a lack of strength, nor a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will!”
So, practice and strengthen your will power habit.
Set out your purpose in big bold lettering and bond with it! Feel the power, allow it to strengthen your resolve and take some action right now.
Let’s make 2016 the year we all bust loose!
Go for it! I certainly am… 🙂
