Definiteness of purpose is the starting point of all achievement.– W. Clement Stone
The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity.– Amelia Earhart
A Father’s Guide to Wisdom
How do we define purpose? Yes, we are going to take a journey through existentialism here, so that we may find a beginning point from which to answer those big questions that seemingly have straightforward answers, yet remain extremely difficult to define.
Let us engage in an exercise here. For one minute, make-believe the answer for your purpose is there. Envision it occurring right here, right now. What do you see yourself doing, and with whom are you associating? How do you feel? Do you see yourself in the past, present, or future perspective? Where on earth are you in this moment of meditative contemplation?
By engaging in this brief meditation, you began to open your psyche to a world of possibility. You began to dream life forward consciously. You actively imagined your future, and hopefully, you arrived at a vision. Congratulations, you took the first step towards ultimate success and defined an image for a better you.
In today’s quotes of inspiration, W. Clement Stone and Amelia Earhart remind us of two key ingredients needed to define our life’s purpose. One is the definition of such an endeavor. The other is the hard work and tenacity required to pursue its end.
We never come to the definition by happenstance. We ultimately define purpose through a vision that aligns with our values. In turn, this vision creates the road-map by which all achievement will unfold upon itself. But to traverse this road is to work hard for what your dream entails, and that is where a little tenacity can help along the journey.
What is your definiteness of purpose? What road will you choose to act upon? Namaste my friends. May prayers and blessings find you along your journey to believe, achieve, and advance confidently in the direction of your dreams.
