Ever wondered what the mongoose or squirrel was thinking as it crossed the highway and got hit by a car, its body laying splattered there on the road?
However, it got me thinking about something. About Life.
The roadkill’s life had come to an abrupt end. Its purpose in life was over. It probably wasn’t thinking of the risk of crossing a busy road, with other fast, big, road users.
You see, we’ve all been given 4 key inter-related things/gifts in life:
- Our Mind – to allow us to think and make choices based on our assessment of RISK
- Our Body – to execute the wishes of the mind based on our choices
- Our Spirit – to help you “see” what the mirror does not reflect
- Our Life – determined by how we utilize the other gifts (1,2 and 3).
They say, goals are very important to your success in any area in life.
Goals: Set them. Plan your work. Work your plan.
Probability of realizing the goals are improved. Its true. It works, if you follow it through. There is a difference though, between wishful thinking and goal-setting.
In addition, however, I say: have the End in Mind. Develop your FORE-SIGHT. Improved Foresight enhances INSIGHT.
I leave you with a little formula that might shed a little light in to finding your Purpose in Life:
FOCUS + FORESIGHT = INSIGHT.
No End. No Purpose. No Life.
See YOUR END (Foresight).
Find YOUR PURPOSE (Insight).
Live YOUR LIFE (Focus).
You only have one life. Its no dress rehearsal. Don’t live it like that road-kill. Find your purpose, before its too late…. Before your daily 86,400 seconds stop ticking.
Tick, tock, tick, tock. Its your life. Write your story the best way you can: with purpose.
