The Pursuit of ‘PURPOSE’

The-Pursuit-of-Purpose

It is end of December again and with year-end comes the reality of setting goals and planning for the upcoming year and beyond.   I have come to accept that writing goals is fundamental to me but converting dreams to actions and ultimately results could be a challenging task.

I have a dream, and the dream is to live a ‘purpose driven life’ but that comes with fully understanding the true definition of ‘purpose’ and embracing mine.  The other day, I read a profound quote which stated: “if you lack wisdom, go on your knees and if you lack knowledge, go to school” thus I picked up a book to increase my knowledge about the pursuit of purpose.

"You and I will never be fully successful in being what we were never born to be.  Your mother or father probably told you that you could be anything you want to be if you put your mind to it.  I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news, but in your opinion, do you think Jack can be a dog if he puts his mind to it?”

Too many of us have given up our perfect, intended selves to become a cheap imitation of others – and yet without any fulfillment.  Who is the real you that has never existed in the world that you have created?  When you know who you are, you won’t try to be what you were not meant to be.  You might be asking, ‘so how do I decide who I am meant to be, given the plethora of choices that are available?’.  The answer is simple: know your purpose".  Excerpt "from Dreaming to Becoming" by Dr. Phinehas Kinuthia.

I am learning that the journey to fulfilling my purpose is a process.  It begins with a commitment to embrace transformation of the inward being and managing my perception-gauge.  My journey to purpose and developing my leadership skills has been transformational because I am learning great lessons and the most valuable of them all is that “great leaders invest in personal, professional, emotional and Spiritual growth because they understand that ‘growth and development is the highest calling of purpose’.

Becoming A Person of Influence!

Becoming-A-Person-of-Influen_20171023-045123_1

Even though there are many ways to finish the sentence ‘Leadership is….’, today, I want to focus on one profound definition – “Leadership is Influence”, nothing more, nothing less!  I am learning that “everyone is (created with natural abilities to be) an influencer of other people” and if we want to accomplish our goals in life, be better leaders and make an impact in our world, we “can do so faster, be more effective, and the contribution we make can be longer lasting if we learn how to ‘be a person of influence’”.   

The fourth quarter presents a new challenge to me.  I am already looking into the future and making commitments to invest in self-development to take my ‘influence’ and ultimately my ‘leadership’ to higher heights.  But wait! did I just say “invest”?  Yes, I sure did; because I received revelation knowledge that “The road to successful leadership (becoming a person of influence) has several toll booths.  People who keep depositing, sacrificing and paying at this toll road get the reward of great leadership skills”.

In January 2017, we will begin our series of Mastermind sessions and it is not a co-incident that we will be digesting the greatest book of all time “Becoming A Person of Influence – how to POSITIVELY IMPACT the LIVES of OTHERSWhat a great way to begin the New Year!
