Recently I was watching a UFC Main Event – Ultimate Fighter. The two combatants entered the square circle and were announced both standing with extreme confidence. What caught my attention was that one of the fighters was fighting for the very first time in the UFC. The announcer went on to say that this young man has been working for this opportunity for the last ten years. Wow, I thought to myself, that is a young man who has found his passion, purpose and was willing to sacrifice with patience, persistence and perseverance to live his dream.
Dandapani summed it up best: “When you know your purpose in life it will define your priorities in life. Knowing your priorities allows you to know what to focus on. How to live your life. Who to spend time with. Who not to spend time with. What to invest your energy in. What not to invest your energy in. Know your purpose defines how you should live your life.”
This had me thinking deeply about my own life’s purpose and a quote from Winston Churchill who said: “It’s not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something.”
So, have your defined your something?
