Discovering ourselves is one of the hardest tasks we must endure as we mature throughout our lives, and everyday we inch a little closer to what we are destined to become.
Part of being young is getting your hands on everything possible, so we can learn what we enjoy best…and most importantly, what we accomplish with such high remarks that we leave our competitors in a distant second place.
No matter what your end result is in life, you must figure out for yourself what it is that you wish to accomplish. How do you want to be seen 5, 10, 20 years from now, and what is it that you want to be known for in the end? What kind of legacy do you want to leave for your children, and your children’s children.
You cannot live this life simply for yourself, for no matter how much you have, you will never be completely satisfied. The total accumulation of any subject matter is meaningless without the company of someone to share your greatest achievements.
For many people, they wander, and look to people to solve this timeless riddle for them. It cannot be done this way. We all must be the masters of our domain, hold ourselves accountable, and create the world in which we live.
Most people are good at many things, and every single individual is great at something else. It is your duty to find what you excel at exponentially, and focus on your strengths to the point where you must compete with the best in the business in order to propel yourself to a higher level.
What gives you a sense of purpose, and more importantly, what provides you with such focus that no matter what disturbances, noise, or ill-council sent your way will not permit you stray away for your objective.
When you have found this you have not only found your purpose, for you have given yourself direction, and you have given yourself an objective.
Remember this – failures are not the ones that fail. Failures are the ones that fail, and refuse to get up and try again.
