What is Life About?

Post on Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

There is nothing more important than to discover and to live your life’s purpose. It is what you were put here on earth to do.

“When a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind.” Seneca

Discovering and living your purpose is where you will find the greatest joy in life. It is in this place where your decisions will be guided and where you will find your most meaningful relationships.

Discovering and living your life’s purpose is hard work. It means that you need to dive deep inside of yourself to uncover who you are. What is it that makes you tick?

“He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.” Friedrich Nietzsche

We all have a purpose in life, a purpose deep inside of each of us that calls us and knocks on our hearts to fulfill, something that we are uniquely called to do.

The greatest gift we are all given is the power to make a difference and to give back. Living a life with purpose and passion is to give back. This is what life is all about.

“To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.” Emily Dickinson

Life is about making a positive difference in the world, giving back to our community, to our family, to our friends, and to the natural world in which we are apart.

Life is about giving back to society in a meaningful way, in a way that has no agenda tied to it other than to give back and to make a difference without an expectation of anything in return.

“Life has meaning only if one barters it day by day for something other than itself.”

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Giving back has the power to help you reach your dreams. You can go anywhere you want to go in your life if you are willing to work hard enough to get it. Giving back is a good place to start.

“Life is like a coin.  You can spend it any way you wish, but you only spend it once.”

Lillian Dickson
