"You didn't create yourself, so there is no way you can tell yourself what you were created for!  If I handed you an invention you had never seen before, you wouldn't know its purpose, and the invention itself wouldn't be able to tell you either.  Only the creator or the owner's manual could reveal its purpose...

Without a purpose, life is motion without meaning, activity without direction, and events without reason.

Knowing your purpose simplifies your life.  It defines what you do and what you don't do.  Your purpose becomes the standard you use to evaluate which activities are essential and which aren't.  People who don't know their purpose try to do too much - and that causes stress, fatigue, and conflict.  It concentrates your effort and energy on what's important.  You become effective by being selective.  It motivates your life.  It prepares you for eternity...

Life is a test, life is a trust, life is a temporary assignment.  God didn't give you your abilities for selfish purposes.  They were given to benefit others, just as others were given abilities for your benefit."


-Rick Warren





We all want to be happy, rich, beautiful, important, and successful.  Sometimes we may think that spending on material goods, living in a mansion, marrying rich, getting a nose job done or dating a model are the answers and will make us satisfied; they do, but only temporarily, because that is not what a human being needs for eternal peace.  We may be rich, but not happy.  We may be pretty, but not successful.  We may be important, but not for the right reasons.

We get so lost in surviving our day-to-day life that we forget to think about what life is all about.  We can’t prioritize and balance the important components our life is composed of because we become slaves to the world we are born in.  By following and pleasing those we surround ourselves by, we not only weaken ourselves but also end up living in a box that results in the narrowness of our minds.  Our level of tolerance, patience, and trust touches the extreme lows.  We forget the purpose and the meaning of life… we forget the basics…  we forget ourselves! 

One thing we all can try to do, however, is change the way we think and all it takes to change the way we think is wisdom.  Wisdom comes by educating ourselves on what life is all about… the logic of life... and when we become wise, everything falls in its place by itself.  The next best thing we can try to do is educate our children... the future generation of our community, society, nation, and the world.

The way we think is the way we live.
The way we live determines the quality of our life.  As they say‚Ķ start at home.
Start early!
