Having Purpose. Let’s talk about purpose. Today a friend of mine on Facebook tagged me about this article he saw that made him think of me. It was about a Japanese term called EKOGUY.I didn’t fully understand it, but he felt it was me. Once I started to read over it, it was the thought that you wake up every morning happy because you finally realize you have a sense of purpose. You aren’t driven by material things. They are driven by their purpose. I thought yes, that is really kind of how I feel about my life right now. I feel like I have purpose.
Do you have the same feelings of need for having purpose?
It is 5:30 am, eastern time, how are you addressing today? Are you like, dammit, it’s another day, another dollar. Crap, I have to go to work. Oh My Gosh, I have to go to school today! How are you addressing your day? Is there any purpose to it? Are you looking at it as though, ugh I don’t want to get up. I don’t want to go to my job or go to school. I just don’t want to do my life today! I advise you to completely flip what is going on in your mind. You have to go, you need to. You have to go to your job, you have to go to school, you have to look at your life as if whatever you’re doing today has a purpose. If it is your “dead-end” job, there is someone there that you need to speak to. There is someone there that needs an encouraging word from you or just needs to see you work effectively and efficiently, so that you can be an example to them. Whatever your job is, whatever you do is making the world run. I don’t care what you do. You are making the world run in some form or fashion. If you do that with all your heart and all your might, there is something gratifying that comes from knowing that you have done a job and you have done it well. If you are going to school today, stop feeling like you are learning stuff that you are never going to use. It is always a catapult to something else which catapults you to something else. My English 101 class in seventh grade didn’t really help me as a Physical Therapist, but it certainly is helping me with my communication right now. Everything you do in life has to be transcended into a purpose and then it makes life more manageable. Today I woke up 10 minutes before the alarm. I was smiling because I knew today I had purpose. I know I am going to my office today, I know I am going to treat patients, I know what I am going to do. I know this is my situation, not everyone is like that, but even me getting on this and talking to you all, I got excited. I knew I needed to get on here and do this because I knew you needed to hear it. Find purpose in your life. Whatever you are going to do today, you have to do it. Just find purpose in it. Find some drive and go get it.
