Good morning y’all!
I completely got my entire existence when I first read this post so I had to share. Bishop Jakes is a man of wisdom, one I respect, and when he speaks, he speaks truth.
What is purpose? Purpose is that thing that you were put on this earth to accomplish – the thing that keeps your heart beating. People tend to get purpose and passion mixed up, thinking that because they’re passionate about something, it must be what they were born to do. While that may be true in some cases, mostly, your passion directs you to the path of purpose. Someone may love creating music and be passionate about doing so – they eat, sleep and breathe music. But that doesn’t mean they should pursue music stardom solely. Maybe in the pursuit of the passion, you find out that you’re a great teacher or speaker and you end up using your platform to inspire and speak life into a generation.
So figure out what it is you are passionate about, it will be that thing that just seems to come naturally to you. If there was only one thing you could do for the rest of your life, even if you weren’t paid for it, what would it be? There, that thing, your answer to the question is what you’re passionate about. Once you determine that, pursue it and it will lead you to your life’s purpose.
What are you most passionate about?
