What are you living for?
What is the purpose of your life?
A purpose in life gives something to live for, something to work for and something to hope for. It is purpose in life that gives a person determination and the will to succeed.
The power of purpose is the power of love. No person can hold on to any purpose with all his heart unless he loves the cause that he is striving for.
Success does not come down on us like rain out of heaven. If we are only half serious and our purpose is only a desire, then when the sun comes down on us burning and smothering us, and we feel tired from our efforts, we will give up. But if our desire becomes a steady purpose to be successful in the thing we have undertaken, then we will not mind the sun and the heat and our weariness, but will work on with our purpose before us.
It is almost impossible to estimate the power of purpose in life. Things thought out of reason have been accomplished through purpose. Every great and noble deed that has ever been done has had for its captain and soldiers men and women of strong purpose.
"Many persons have a wrong idea of what consittues true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose." ~ Helen Keller
"The only true happiness comes from squandering ourselves for a purpose." ~ William Cowper
"I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. Henceforth will I apply ALL my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy." ~ Og Mandino
