The reason for which something exists or is done, made, used, etc.
An intended or desired result; end; aim; goal.
Why is this so powerful, because we all have a purpose, and that purpose is not based on our zip code, family background, or other people’s opinions (can those things have influence? Sure!! But it does not have the authority to determine it, unless we relinquish our rights to it.)
So many of us are in different stages of understanding our purpose, but no matter if you are sure of what your are here to do or you still on the journey of discovering it and creating the path that will lead to fulling your greatest self, The truth is something we all have in common is each of us has a purpose.
We all have purpose and its not determined by our current view, or situation, that is great, but we also need to understand we are filled with promise.
Promise means: a declaration that something will or will not be done, given, etc., by one:
However, today I just want to focus on our prospective… How are you thinking? What are you saying? In turn that is what you believe. ” Out of the heart, the Mouth speaks”- Luke 6:45
If we base our future by looking at NOW, many of us would be in trouble. We have to work hard to see ourselves where we will be and not rely on what we do not already have. Enjoy the ride the ride and the scenery where you are right now, the present is a gift that will not return. Trust me, it only prepares you for the future. Don’t get so caught up in reaching the peak that you miss the milestones and the beauty of the climb..
About the promise … we are the promise, the promise of a better future, the promise of a better life, the promise of better opportunities. We are the promise, so whatever your pain is, you have the ability to make it better, you are the promise that was born for such a time as this. Stop looking for solutions in others, when what you need is birthing inside of you, yes others will provide guidance and assistance, but you are the one. Know that and walk in that truth.
Why is to so good, well I am one of faith, and I understand that I have promises that are made for me and they are coming to me, from my God, I have an inheritance, I have a legacy and so do you.
What promises did you make and how do you keep them? Not only in the business world, but also in life . I believe that everything is connected like a circle.
Do you keep your promise to other people, to your family, at your job, at your place of worship, with your friends? Your answer is probable YES, you keep your word to other people. Now ask yourself, do you keep your word, your promises that you make to yourself? Unfortunately, most people answers to that is NO.
What promises have you made to yourself that you have not kept?
- I am going to invest in myself
- I am going to make healthy decisions
- I am going to start my business
- I am going to write that book
- I am going to spend less and save more
- I am going to work on my personal relationships
- I am going back to school
- I am… I am… and so on….
In order to live and discover your purpose the first step is keeping your promises that you made to yourself, as you are taking care of you , you are in the right space to take care of others. You may even find, as you are keeping your promises you will have time to SEE your purpose. When you are so busy with others, saying YES to them, you have no time for yourselves and that sometime clouds our vision.
Your promise and purpose are linked.. so if you don’t remember anything I wrote , please remember that you must keep the promises you make to yourself, you are worth and deserve it. Actually, it’s more than you think because other people benefit from your purpose, your service, your product or your speech. Whatever it is, it is bigger than you. So you own it to not just yourself but others that need what you possess.
I have a assignment, I want you to work on. Write down at least three promises that you have to fulfill for yourself, also in the sheet, you have to write a statement of purpose with that promise, so you can go back and monitor if you are fulfilling the promises you yourself.
Promise :I will invest in training for my business
Statements/ Goals to accomplish the promise
1) I have will registered for a business focus Mastermind group
2) I will listen to the coaching session each week
3) I will write down one thing that I got from each session
4) I will apply at least one teaching to my life in ——— (Blank) area
Also on the sheet write down what is your purpose? Some may not know and that is ok, write down what you enjoy doing, and also write down what you are skillful at. Keep this sheet it may adjust as you go along, but it’s important that you are actively thinking about what is your purpose? What is your goal?
Lastly, I want to say this. and please take in the spirit in which it is intended. and that is personal growth.
You are NOT in reading this to be given anything, you are here to GET something, they are to totally different mindsets.
When someone gives you something, they have done all the work. Its takes no real effort for you but to hear, or take and hopefully be grateful . And sometimes when something is given to you there is normally no buy in, and its temporary. No change has happen, no perspective is shifted.
When I looked up a definition for the word GET :
1.succeed in attaining, achieving, or experiencing; obtain
2.acquire (knowledge) by study; learn.
You reading this because you came to GET something, you are intentional about yourself and your business. You understand that where you are going is going to take your commitment as well. So when you GET something, you come ready with the MIND to received, you don’t just hear, but you are listening for what you need to receive. There is buy-in from you, your mindset is expecting greatness therefore you get it. You are looking for information, and you will find it. – When the mind seeks it will find. When the heart is ready it will do!
So people of Purpose and Promise, come and GET what belongs to you because what you getting now will prepare you for the future.
Your purpose & promise Awaits!! Go Get It!
