Motivation is a battle for the heart, not just an appeal to the mind. Passion is always an expression of the soul. Patrick Dixon, Building a Better Business (2005), p. 159
Lately, I have realized that the greatest thing that can motivate a person is not your personal dreams but dreams that could change the world. I may have been laid back, but something shook my soul and awaken me.
I used to pass by a funeral place along the highway on my way to school. The facade of the building says:
I pray that your loneliness will lead you to find something to live for, great enough to die for.
Purpose is the original intention of the One who made us. The Maker already knew what roles we are to play in the wide and complicated universe. We are made for something great. I pray that all of us will find and capture our original assignment on earth and live a life of purpose.
