The Wisdom of Abraham Lincoln: Day 6
Everyone has a purpose and passion in life. It is that one thing that you do with complete joy and without want or need for compensation. It is that one thing that just comes naturally to you. I have spoken a few times about my experience watching Bishop T.D. Jakes speak live and his view on purpose. There are several clips on YouTube from the Lifeclass that I attended with him and I urge you to seek them out.
When you have found your purpose in life you need to put your whole heart into it and be the best 'whatever' you can be. This may mean losing so called "friends" or those who were content with what you were doing with your life. This could mean you go through some hard times trying to become the 'whatever' you were meant to be. But my favorite thing he spoke about regarding each of our purposes and deserved life on this earth is that "The Great The Digression, The Greater The Progression".
Lincoln gives us a great reminder here that no matter what tries to get in your way, once you figured out 'whatever' it is you were meant to do...DO IT and be a good one.
