At first, we have looked three questions of purpose. To fulfill your purpose here on earth and to live on the best side of life, you need to constantly ask yourself positive questions. No one can make your life better than what you do to make your own life better. The first question is "Am I Committed to Personal Growth?" and the second question is "Am I Enjoying What I Do?". The third question is Am I willing to serve others"? You should read them if you haven't.Read More »
In addition to the two questions of purpose already asked, you need to constantly ask yourself, "Am I willing to serve others"? To fulfill your purpose here on earth and to live on the best side of life, you need to constantly ask yourself positive questions. No one can make your life better than what you do to make your own life better. The first question is "Am I Committed to Personal Growth?" and the second question is "Am I Enjoying What I Do?".

Few days ago, I asked a question which is, "Am I Committed to Personal Growth?". Please, do check it out. That is the first question in these series of questions of your purpose I will be asking. I'll also be looking forward to your feedback on it. The next "purpose question" is about what you do. Do you enjoy what you do? Ask yourself, Am I really enjoying what I do? I wouldn't want you to jump right into an answer. That's because the answer you give very fast to this is from a defensive part of human nature. Take a moment to think on this question. Look indepth into what you do and give an honest answer.
You see, you'll never fulfill your purpose or your destiny doing something you don't enjoy. Passion lies at the core of true success and fulfillment. You can't be passionate about doing what you don't enjoy. Even if doing it provides your daily meal. You don't have to keep doing what you don't enjoy simply because it provides your daily meal. Life requires you to sometimes go hungry in order to find what you enjoy doing and do them. If you don't sacrifice what you don't enjoy and the meal it provides, you may never find what you enjoy doing and may never be a provider of meals for other people. You are not just a consumer, you are made a provider.
Don't lose your passion by doing what you don't enjoy. You need your passion to fulfill your purpose. You need it to fulfill your destiny. Passion is the spark for your fuse. It energizes you when others around you grow tired of pursuing their purpose. Passion helps you come up with answers when others cease to have creative ideas. Passion gives you courage to take risks into the unknown when others crave for security in their present situation.
Keep pursuing excellence. That's what life expects from you. Don't jeopardize your integrity. You need integrity to live on the best side of life. Live your life by doing what you enjoy and enjoying what you do. You have one life to live here on earth. Don't be tempted to take shortcuts and compromise by settling for less than God intended for you. God made you with the best material so as to live on the best side of life. That means, you don't have to keep doing what you don't enjoy. You can have what you enjoying doing and you can do them in order to fulfill your purpose and destiny.
Few days ago, I watched a movie titled Ragamuffin. I'll say this movie is classified as the best movie I've seen in 2014. It's based on the life of Rich Mullins, a musical prodigy who rose to Christian music fame and fortune only to walk away from it and live in a local reservation. Rich is known for so many popular songs, one of which is Awesome God
He was raised by a somewhat callous father and a loving mother. In short, he didn't experience true love from his father. Later on, that experience affected him in discovering the true love of God towards him.
Rich Mullins really loved Jesus but was a rebel in church and towards Christian music business. But he never let his own experience while growing up to affect his purpose and love towards God.
In all this, he decided to live a life of honesty and reckless faith amidst a culture of religion and conformity to the ways of the world.
I learned a big lesson from this movie. Actually, I know the lessons before but this true story helped me reassure my faith in God. I was reassured that, no matter what happens to me in this world, God's love for me never change. I was also re-assured that, Christianity is all about learning how to love Jesus. Do you really believe in God's love for you?
I'm sure you too will learn lots of lesson if you can find and watch this film. It will help you reassure and re-access your walk with God and how to make changes.
Below is a trailer of the movie.
No matter what you going through now, God got a bigger plan for you. You need to find and follow it with all you've got. That's where you greatness lies and God is waiting to receive all the glory.
