So I first heard this line and dropped it into a blog back in early September. Since then I’ve said it out loud to more than a few people and I can’t tell you how many times the reaction is exactly the same as mine…”Wow”. Not only do they tell me it resonates with them, but they feel it in their heart.
Of the countless things I have listened to and read in the past year on the topics of self-improvement, growth, goals, finding your purpose, pursuing your dream… this one still sits at the top of the list. You can’t read or listen to that line and not pause for at least for a moment and think. Thinking is a good thing, especially when it focuses on the inside — who you are, what you want and who you are supposed to be. Figure that out and life takes on a whole new meaning. It’s an answer unique to YOU, since you are unique, you have talents and treasures which might still be hidden, but realize you have a purpose and can make incredible things happen, if you can keep it simple and figure out WHY.
It’s up to you, and it’s a matter of some serious thought. Think about it, then write it down. Goals and dreams which exist only in your mind are like marbles rolling around in your head, you need to put it down on paper. Write it, read it, live it. Show all of us what you are made of, everyone deserves to shine.
Read it again, out loud this time: “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born…and the day you find out why.”
Fifty-percent of the battle is won, you’re here, now go find out why.
Until next time, thanks for taking the time.
