The Wisdom of Nelson Mandela: Day 3
No matter what circumstances are thrown at you, you can achieve greatness and success. You were meant for greatness and success. This is very similar to my favorite Bishop TD Jakes lesson regarding the bow and arrow, "the greater the digression the greater the progression." An arrow has to be pulled back in order to be thrust forward. When life pulls you back it is simply getting ready to push you into the greatness you deserve.
And when finding your purpose in life or when aiming for success it is your passion that drives it. It would be hard to find someone who has achieved success without struggle, setbacks, and bumps in the road. But what kept them going was passion. If you remain focused on the thing that burns the passion inside of you and stay determined that no matter what it will happen, then you will achieve that which you aim for.
Find and recognize your passion and that will lead you to your purpose which will lead you to success.
