#81 - Are You Running?
Release Date: 08/01/2018
You and I each have a purpose in life. We each have a race to run, based on that unique purpose. And while they stay stick to your lane, on this episode you'll discover why when all of us finish strong, everyone wins!
One dictionary defines Purpose as - The reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.
At some point in life, most people wonder what is the reason for their existence. Have you ever asked yourself that question?
Now, while I don't have a one-size-fits-all solution for how someone can find their purpose, I believe having a vision that goes beyond you can help us answer that question. Because they say no man is an island, purpose will always involve someone else, in one way or the other.
I also believe living a life of purpose is not a one-time event, but an ongoing process, that can change as we grow during the journey of life. No one can actually reveal your purpose to you except your creator. People can help you find what is already in your heart as a seed. And others can help you nurture it unto fruitfulness.
Likewise, no one can live your purpose for you. Or do your press-ups for you. And just like runners in a race, everyone has their lane, and as you and I stick to our designated lanes, we can run with faith and patience until the day we reach the finishing line.
But what matters in life is not just than winning for ourselves. What matters in life is helping others to win as well, even if it means slowing down sometimes. Today's short story (hadithi in Kiswahili) illustrates the significance of support each other, even as we run as individuals.
Because we are connected to each other when all of us finish strong everybody wins!
