You can look into the world and try to find motivation.
You can view the entire world through the lens of your purpose and let that motivate you.
The first perspective will leave you frustrated. It's passive. It says what you need is out there.
The second perspective means you already have everything you need. Your passion influences your actions. It's a big giant why for when things get hard.
I want everyone who knows me to know they have everything need to live out their potential. Not that it's easy--that it's possible.
It breaks my heart when people don't realize how much potential they have to improve their lives, to influence their situations positively, that it can always get better. I want people to know there is still a step they can take.
In my work, it means I must create a company where people not only love to work but that they also grow as a result of working there. That they are challenged and supported, high expectations combined with a high level of care for others.
I need to do a better job. I get distracted. I forget about it. When things get hard, I get down. I get trapped in my own head. I start feeling like life is happening to me.
I write every day so that I can stay connected my passion and purpose. It's the reason I am sharing more on my blog. This daily discipline keeps me connected with what makes me tick.
