Today’s topic is Purpose, Lesson Two, Call to Action Two.
Have a Purpose
Having a purpose is part of survival.
The King James Version of Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish” is true for nations, families, communities, and individuals.
This verse means that without a long-range goal (vision), people have no path to follow; they wander aimlessly from here to there; they feel depressed and lost.
To have Start Over Success one must have a vision.
Do nothing until you know yours.
Fortunate is the person who has a vision.
Your purpose is what you are passionate about.
It is the problem you want to solve; the thing you can’t tolerate.
A nine year old Chinese boy, when asked what he wanted to do when he grew up, said, “I want to find a way to grow enough food so that no one in the world is hungry.”
The look on his face, in his eyes, his tone of voice, the way he held his body, told me that he meant this; this was his purpose.
He was only nine, but he knew his purpose.
My purpose is teaching the skills that make people successful. I teach English to speakers of other languages because the skill of speaking English will help my students be successful. I teach English writing skills to nine to thirteen-year old’s because writing well will help these students be successful. I teach Go Within because doing this action helps people have success. Go Within is found under Help on this website.
Call to Action
The problem in the United States is we have no national vision. We are floundering because we haven’t a national goal, a place to aim for, something we are all working towards.
The same for the people of the United States; they have no vision.
The same for individual’s: without a vision, we don’t know what to do.
To name your vision:
- step back and observe you; take notes
- ask the Cosmos; then listen deep and hard
- research on Google
And so it is.
