“Purpose is the discovery of a reason for your existence and is defined as the original intent for the creation of a thing. Every human being was created for a specific purpose, and when that purpose is discovered, then a leader is born” – Dr Myles Munroe (The Spirit of Leadership)

Who are you? It’s a question that a lot of people fail to ask so they strive to become everyone else. What truly defines us? Our values, character and attitude are the qualities that distinguish us from each other and make us want to join a cause or start one. We are humans made in the image and likeness of our Creator with a flesh and with awesome supernatural tendencies through our Spirit. It leads us out of the natural to something more distinct and unseen that most of what we hope to receive is received by faith. We are being transformed in our minds by the renewal of our Spirit which always connects us to our Source – God. We are all the same being, unique with different gifts, talents, dreams and purpose. The primary purpose of God towards us is to manifest His glory here on earth, so when you choose to become someone else you waste what you have been created to become. Everyone has a purpose but you will have to do some work discovering that which you have been created to be.

Unfortunately a lot of people with tremendous gifts and resources have allowed other people to run their lives.  They tell you what to do with your lives and they become the primary reason for doing it. There is no room for mistake and they will want you to be perfect. You fail them then you are adjudged to have failed completely. You become frustrated, depressed and disconnected from what you truly want to become. The reason for doing anything should come from you, you must discover those reasons for yourself or else you will not be happy doing it. Let their voices be the last you will consider which is after making your decisions based on your gifts and calling in life. However, in life there is never a perfect path to success until you take the first steps in achieving your purpose. If you must choose that path you must ensure that it aligns with the purpose of God for your life to make whatever He has placed in your hands to manifest His glory.

The only thing that can keep us from becoming all we have been created to be is our heart that is why the Word of God asked us to guard our hearts for out of it comes the issues of life. The enemy is within you, in your heart that is where you win or lose any battle. Regardless of the fact that there is a lot of evil in the world today, you must guard your heart not to be like them but to be as God made you to be. The evil around makes you believe that you are worthless, valueless and hated. It makes you aware of the wrong things going on around you that if you cannot beat the world system, you will have to join them by becoming like them. It lies to you that you are a lesser being and nothing good can come out of you while you are much more. It tells you to give up even though you have been given the capacity to walk through the unending waves. It always gives you a bad meaning of life that we cannot enjoy life and keeps you poor minded. It often gives us a bad song when all we need is a whisper of good rhythms of life.

However, it is hard to see the goodness in the world because it seems evil has sabotaged the effort of that goodness, but goodness still strives. Evil is always perpetrated and it triumphs because we have failed to identify who we are. A corrupt self breeds a corrupt system.

Who are you? Are you that person that strives be different, conquer evil with generosity, love, gratitude, understanding and wisdom? Are you that person that seeks to see the good in others, appreciate them even when they are not at their best? Are you that person who seeks to be more , pursue what is right, possess the right character, attitude and value to build a good system within you and it will rub on everyone around you.

In you is a new dance, you could rock the world.

In you is a new book, it could become a bestseller.

In you is an invention, you could build an innovative system.

In you is a leader, you could bring awesome change to the world.

In you is a teacher, you could lead generations towards a path to greatness.

In you is a renowned speaker, you could inspire and motivate a new generation of leaders to begin to make a difference.

In you is a song, you could win a Grammy.

In you is a word that could change your world.

It would not matter whether you have the resources or not, what matters is that you have a dream that can transform the world. No matter your disability you can become great, what matters is that drive inside that will get you fired up. You can conquer and rise above circumstances surrounding you right now to become more. The odds might be against you but you have to play even and not sit around doing nothing. Keep dreaming, do what you really love doing, educate yourself and pursue a cause.

  2. Thanks for writing this great article, may God bless you. Pls what steps must i take to discover my purpose in this life? Reply pls.

    • Hi Judith, I am so glad you took the time to read this post and willing to discover your purpose in life. A lot of people are finding it quite hard to discover what they’ve been created to be but it’s not really hard as we think. The steps you must take to discover your purpose are:

      1. Knowing God: Who He is and why He loves you and wants you to succeed. You can know God by reading and understanding the Bible. His promises never fails. You will know what He has called you to be. You were created in His image and likeness.

      2.Discover Yourself (Know your potential) :You need to realize that God has placed something inside of you. Those dreams He has placed inside of you. You have the potential to become something great, something better. There is a saying that God has placed a gift inside each of us and what we do with it is our gift to the world. You need to stir up your gifts, talents, dreams and desires – the potential within you. Maybe these qualities and traits are buried beneath depression and discouragement, negative voices of people telling you that you can’t; beneath weaknesses, failures or fears. The good things God has placed in you are still there. Now you’ve got to start digging them out by doing your part.

      3. Have the passion to pursue: After you’ve discovered your potential you need to create the drive by making sure you talk about it, walk it, do it and live it. What is in front of you is far more important than what is behind you. Whatever challenges you will be facing you’ll look at it in the face and say “YOU CAN’T STOP ME”.

      4. Change your thoughts: Those thoughts that tell you, you cannot do it. Tells you about your background and tells you that you are not good enough will only keep you from not realizing what the purpose of God is for your life. It’s time you change your thoughts. Speak powerful and lovely words to yourself by making affirmations like “I AM CREATIVE, I AM TALENTED, I AM VALUABLE, MY FUTURE IS BRIGHT AND I AM COMING OUT STRONGER AND GETTING BETTER”. Create a vision for your life: A vision is the picture of the future that is better than the present and noble than the past. Your passion is what gives birth to vision.

      Lastly your last question was How do you know if your purpose is God given.

      Whatever it is you should be

      1. Adding value
      2. Show genuine acts of love
      3. Gives people hope.
      4. Willing to live the servant lifestyle.
      5. Manifesting the glory of God in your life.

      Today do something different that no one had ever done before. There are problems everywhere that needs you to create solutions to them. Today choose a vocation and pursue a cause. You might want to change the way business is done, create a business that gives hope to people. In your school you could help people realize their dreams as you realize yours too. In your place of work you can help people become effective and better doing the job.

      Looking forward to hear from you. Add me up on facebook
