A lot of people ask, “What am I supposed to do with my life?” The better question to ask is, “What direction is best for me in light of my talents, interests, and circumstances?”
I’ve heard other motivational gurus claim they can help you discover your destiny or find your purpose. In all honesty, they’d have something close to a god to know your purpose or destiny.
Still, other gurus talk a great deal about goals. They talk a lot about goal-setting and achievement. Those things are important, but when it comes to your life, you want a DIRECTION, not a GOAL.
Setting a Direction for Your Life
So, all this talk about destiny, purpose, life goals can be intimidating. For example, if you have to consult with other people about what your destiny or purpose is, then you know you’re dealing with useless information.
There’s a better way work out your life, but it begins with three simple premises:
- Don’t search for a destiny, choose a destination.
- Don’t wonder about your purpose, develop your talents.
- Don’t focus on a goal, set a direction.
The direction I set for my life is based upon an honest assessment of my talents, interests, and circumstances, and then I create a direction and strategy for how I’ll work out my life. The power of this is that my direction is created by the development of my abilities and character.
The Obligation You Have to Yourself
You have an obligation to yourself to develop and maximize all that you are, and all that you can do.
- You don’t wait for life to work things out for you.
- You don’t just choose a goal.
- You work out your life by developing your abilities in areas of interests that don’t jeopardize your present circumstances.
