Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.Tony Robbins
Definiteness of purpose is the starting point of all achievement.W. Clement Stone
The Philosopher’s Corner
Have you ever been lost? Felt not seen… heard… or even acknowledged?
We have all felt that way. In fact anyone who has ever survived adolescence… that tumultuous time when everything that was known somehow became unknown, and life as we knew it somehow flip flopped upon its very essence, as childhood reveries transitioned to adult life, knows exactly the feelings I speak of in this passage.
This form of existence is not meant for the unpopular alone; nor the popular alike. It is non-discriminatory, and gnaws at the essence of our being. This loneliness, this existential angst, the ontological form of questioning, forms the very foundation for everything that is great to come. Like the seedling sprouts towards its life giving force found in the sun, these questions lead us to a higher plane of reasoning; one which fosters all future growth forward. However, the tumultuous pull of this maturational journey shakes many to their very foundation, causing the seedling of the the soul that has sprouted to sink back upon itself towards a less mature, nurtured state of being.
To define purpose is to define and create value. As Mr. Robbins, a personal favorite author of mine alludes to, goals are a first step into turning those invisible (dream elements) into a visible reality. W. Clement Stone mirrors this philosophy when he states that all achievement is found in our capacity to define a definiteness of purpose.
Got Dreams? Define them, and then see that definiteness, beauty, and simple complexity of life emerge from its non-material essence.
Prayers and Blessings my friends during this time of intrigue. May you Believe… Achieve… Advance Confidently in the Direction of Your Dreams.
