Accepting Your Purpose #EdwardSnowden #HelenKeller #NewThought

Helen Keller said: “Life is either a great adventure, or nothing at all!” She didn’t say to life and to God, “I’m deaf, dumb, and blind, and I have nothing more to feel but pity for myself. No, she learned to speak and became a profound orator. Edward Snowden has made his purpose perfectly clear to the world. His moxie and poise about his recent desire to expose undercover operations in the US, in my estimation, is the meaning of defined purpose. What exactly is keeping you from your Dynamic Purpose today?

Before you lay a panacea of opportunity, adventure, and love, just waiting for you to accept the challenge with open arms. More importantly, though, you must step forward into the next moment of your life with faith that God and Spirit are on your side, helping you to find to your life’s purpose. Otherwise, why else would we be here on this earth?

When I look around me at the crime, the problems, the killing of innocent people and children, the tsunamis and world disasters, I quickly understand that life isn’t about the ephemeral. What isn’t permanent passes away as soon as it manifests. Life must have a greater meaning. For that reason, I press on to my next day and my next moment, knowing my heart will lead me to life’s ultimate goals and purposes—for me.

I don’t know if each of our lives holds one great purpose. For me, life has been many small purposes. Maybe, one day, all of these small purposes will lead me to a greater purpose. I’m comfortable, however, with being spoon-fed through the tough moments and being given what I have today to the world and to the people led to my life.

I believe you have to be open to your life’s purpose, too, to make the most out of your life. If you’re a garbage collector, then make sure you listen for the call of Spirit to lead you to be the perfect and most affable garbage collector you can be. Maybe, some day soon, you will rise above the position and look back at your days of collecting garbage with a metaphor about life only you could share.

Most people are interested in getting their work into the hands of a large companies and publishers to create the biggest impact. I was, too, for a long time. Then, one day, I realized that for most of my life, I have sat on my gifts and kept them hidden on a nested folder on my laptop. No one gets the benefit of all my hard work as a writer, if 2/3 of my work is lying dormant on my computer, just because some big publisher didn’t think I had a big enough platform to make an impact for their company.

Maybe I’m not supposed to make a big splash now. Maybe I’m supposed to start with a small ripple. That ripple will move out into the ocean of life and become a wave. That wave may someday splash onto the shore of life with a large impact in God’s perfect timing. But, what’s important is that I decide my purpose. What is in mind, manifests in kind.

If you believe you have nothing to share with the world, you will share nothing. If you believe that God created you with an individual talent and special cause, you will some day manifest that cause in a way that is meant for whomever God intended it. Yes, we cannot make people believe in our causes, buy our products, books, CDs, and art. But we can continue to create and speak and believe, because we are made in the image of Creator God. Therefore, we are meant to manifest in this world and wonderful and adventurous ways.

Now, go out and be who you are meant to be today!

Finding Your True Purpose

Most of us spend our entire lives working, making enough money to pay the bills, supporting the children, paying the rent, making money for food, and satisfying personal needs; yet, very few of us truly find our purpose in life. Only 20% of us find a job that really brings joy to our hearts and lives daily.

The Business Insider online says that in 2010, 80% of people “hated” their job—not just dislike—hated! That makes me crazy. How can that be?

I had a client who had aspirations of being a country singer and songwriter. He came to Nashville, met a woman simultaneously, ended up getting married. Soon after, his wife became pregnant.

He began writing and working a part-time job, while his naïve wife told him she would work, while he pursued his dream. Soon, of course, she was unable to work because of the infant. They couldn’t afford daycare. He ended forced to take a job in construction, he didn’t really enjoy. He especially hated the job when it would rain, and he would have no income for the day. The job would be postponed because of weather. It was now essential he came home with a certain amount of money, as he had the responsibility of child and wife and a home.

To make the matters worse, in the next three years, the couple had two more children—unplanned. Now he had to step up his game and create a construction company of his own. He then worked 10-12-hour days, six days a week, and hadn’t written a song or had sung a song in four years.

He was depressed and could barely get out of bed in the morning. But when three children jumped on top of him and screamed, “Daddy, Daddy, I’m hungry!” and Mom had left because of Dad’s depression, there was little to do but get up and spend the rest of the day being the dutiful father.

This man now has the money for daycare, but really no time to even enjoy his children. He wants his life back and wants a job that brings joy to his life. I certainly understand, but wonder exactly what a life coach can do at this point in the game.

I suggested carving out time just for him. He looked at me with a quizzical stare. Really? When? Where?

I asked if he had someone he could trust to run the business for him, when he wasn’t in charge. He, again, looked at me like I was a crazy man.

I told him the first order of business, then, was to begin to farm out some of his responsibilities to people he trusted. He had to find someone he could hire to help him; otherwise, he could never get out from under the water. He was drowning.

So, after the first week, he interviewed a few people, and discovered that one of his cousins was interested in helping out one day a week for extra money. I told him to pay his cousin a fair wage and to take the day off. Keep the children in daycare or school. Use the day to write music or watch television or just sleep.

He took my advice, wasn’t out that much money, and actually enjoyed one day of fun. The next week he began to look forward to the time off. Soon, he was making plans to write with old songwriter friends. Eventually, he did get a cut with a major artist, which led him to be able to take two days off a week. Eventually, he got a few more cuts. Soon he sold his construction business to his cousin and now writes music fulltime.

You have to make a plan and stick to it to get what you need out of life. There are ways. Yes, you may have to sacrifice the BMW for a couple years. But, trust me, you will be much happier driving the Honda to art class than you will the BMW, if art is what your soul desires.

We are made in the image of Creator God. That means, we all have the deep desire to create something special from our lives. We have Spiritual DNA that is compassionate, loving, prosperous, and all-knowing. Within each of us is not only the desire to find purpose, but the will to get it done at any cost.

Find that power within you. It’s there. It may be buried deep inside your 100 personal daily duties. But it’s there.
