We all have this inner sense of importance, this desire to be great. Each person has a purpose for their life, a job to do and do well while here on earth. So what is it?
Luke warm is stagnant and unmoving. Think of any "great" you can. I will guarantee you that their movies are action movies. John C. Maxwell teaches that commitment is tested by action. You can go back to my favorite book, the Bible, and see where action holds importance. An example that Jesus gives to his followers was that of a father who asks his two sons to go and do some chores. One son says yes, then does't go, while the other says no, but decides later to go ahead and go do the work. Jesus asks them which son do they think the father was pleased with. What do you think?
What are you willing to die for?
What do you have to do to perfection or else it eats you up, even is no one else would notice? What in life can you simply not do? There is something that rattles your chains, boils your blood, or draws forth some sort of emotion. Pay attention to your surroundings, the conversations or even the attitudes that light your fire. Those are the things that you are passionate about. Those are things in which you need to step in to. Your passion fuels your purpose. You may not have found them yet, but I guarantee you that what you do on a daily basis is pushing you towards those things. Be mindful. Every decision you make is important. You are creating you. And you have a purpose to serve this world.
