I hope you are enjoying and getting something out of this series. Please give me some feedback to let me know your thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Okay, this post might be a little rough so hold on. Here goes…
Generally, when it comes to having a direction in life, there are really only three kinds of people:
- People who don’t know what they would like to do – They are often confused and lack a strong sense of purpose. If they are growing, they are unfocused about it. They dabble and drift. They are unable to reach their potential because they have no idea what to shoot for.
- People who know what they would like to do but don’t do it – They are usually frustrated. Often they experience the gap between where they are and where they want to be. Sometimes the reason is because they worry due to other responsibilities or they are not willing to take the risk to move closer to where they want to be. Other times fear prevents them from changing course to pursue their passion. Regardless, they miss their potential.
- People who know what they would like to do and do it – The third kind of people know themselves, possess a strong sense of passion, are focused on purpose, grow in areas the help them move closer to their purpose, and do what they were created to do. The word to described them best is, Fulfilled.
The key is that a person needs to know who they are in order to grow in their potential. However, a person grows in their potential by knowing who they are. That starts by learning our passions and wiring. Right now, I’m throwing a lot at you. Take this in. More to come in the next part. Shoot me your questions.
