LEADERS, KNOW THIS – LIFE IS ABOUT PURPOSE

BOSIRE ONYI. | NO IMPOSSIBILITIES, ONLY OPPORTUNITIES

When we perceive failure, we need to understand that its life trying to push us to a better direction. The key to life is to develop an internal moral emotional GPS that tells you which better way to go. The morals that sets the standards for the actions that define you. They create a measure with which people understand you, and look into you.

The challenge of life is to build a resume that doesn’t simply tell a story about what you want to be but about a story of who you want to be. Its a resume that tells not only what you want to accomplish but why, A story that is not just a collection of titles and positions but a story really about your purpose, because, when you inevitably stumble and find yourself stuck in a whole, that’s the story that will get you out.

The possibilities that come with being youthful are enormous. But it brings its fair share of challenges too that often either discredit our abilities or further our experiences in life. It’s only normal to wake up in the morning and realize all you’ve been dwelling on so much can simply be vanity. Just in a second. That moment when you’re seated and evaluating your actions only to realize a prank that you pulled on yourself – yet the prank worked for you! It’s all uncertain but the faithful, hopeful and optimists make it.

As the people who carry the energy of nations, we should forever endeavour to live by purpose. Simply, what’s your purpose?… And purpose is all about exchanging your kindness with fellow human beings when you can, from where you’re seated, with your talent, skill, time and even money if you have it. Because it takes kindness to grow humanity and it’s upon humanity that our beautiful big stature, unshakable future and that great personality is built on. When you do that, that’s when your story really gets good!

Sometimes, it’s not all clear, don’t expect to know your purpose there and then , but you ought to engage in something constructive, something to help you remain in the steering wheel, something to invest your energy in and help you sharpen your claws to manage a strong grip on your purpose once you find it.

Oprah Winfrey knows it when she says about her purpose, that” I am here to use television but not be used by it!!” Just realize that your leisure can be your treasure, your hobby can be a goldmine. So don’t get to comfort because indeed, that comfort signifies someone’s toil. It’s never a time to receive, greatness is built on a get and take, receive and give.

We should all have the basic skills of creating a better personality out of us. When you learn, teach. When you get, give. That my friends is what gives your story purpose.

The common denominator that unites all human beings, is the need to feel important. We want to be validated. We want to be understood. Let’s make sure that the speed and distance and anonymity of our world doesn’t cause us to lose the ability to stand in somebody else’s shoes, and recognize all that we share as human beings. This is imperative for us to Move forward as a nation and a continent.

Whether you call it soul or spirit or higher inner intelligence, I believe, there is a light inside of us that illuminates your very human being-ness if you let it do so, because being yourself is easier than trying to be somebody else.

As we live in this world with high expectations from both within and without, we will face challenges and shortcomings but if you only have one goal, To fulfil the highest, most truthful expression of yourself as a human being, you want to max out your humanity by using your energy to lift yourself up, your family and the people around you.

Don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do that because what the world needs is people who have come alive. Sometimes when you lose who you once were, it gives an opportunity to become who you want to be. We will all be sad, but we might not know this, I have faith that we will all be okay. We just don’t know that yet. We might not always know it, or see it or hear it or feel it in our daily lives… But I know it’ll be all okay. We shall all be okay.

I have faith because of that 5 year old who can’t afford a meal a day. Or decent education, I have faith because of that jobless young man seated in a corner smoking hard drugs, I have faith because of that old lady or man who can’t afford the medical bills… These are the reasons why my effort is still needed in the world, this is why your effort is needed in this world. Until your true purpose is satisfactorily achieved, both from within you and the people who feel you.s
