“Don’t let anyone prevent you from becoming and doing all that you were born to be and do.
“Nothing is truly yours until you understand it—not even yourself. Some people are born knowing what they want to do and even how to do it. The rest of us must spend hours figuring out what to do with our lives. Vague goals such as I want to be happy, I want to make the world a better place to live, or even I want to be rich are nearly useless. We must ask the primary question—Why am I here?—and reply with an unqualified answer—To be myself and to express myself fully.
Concern for doing the right thing rather than a desire to do things right must always guide you. That right thing is the purpose for which God created you and gave you breath. You are special and unique. God made you from an original mold, then threw it away when you were completed.
Check out your uniqueness and find out what differentiates you from the billions of people who inhabit this planet. Then pursue your aspiration deliberately “and consistently. Be what you are. Capitalize on the natural skills and talents with which you were born, and don’t lose them. When others belittle your special gifts and try to remake you according to their plans and purposes, refuse to yield to their domination. Don’t let anyone prevent you from becoming and doing all that you were born to be and do. Remember, if you don’t deploy yourself, others will soon employ you. Above all else, pursue purpose with a passion and experience the reason for your life.
The purposes of a man’s heart are deep waters, but a man of understanding draws them out (Proverbs 20:5).
