Destined for Greatness :Your Tuesday morning Inspiration with Gerald Chinogara 

The enemy to living a great and successful life is lack of purpose. Lack of purpose is the main reason why so many people have become victims of mediocrity and this has led multitudes to accept poverty and despair as their portion in life. To know your purpose you need to know the answer to what you were put here on earth to do. That's a mind-blowing question, because most people don't know the answer. Lots of folks get up, pick up their mobile phone to go on social media, do some work, eat, sit in front of the television and retire to bed. That sums up the activities of one’s day, and that certainly cannot be anyone's purpose in life. 

Today I'm here to sound the wake-up call since you probably don't know any better way to extricate yourself out of your current quandary.  It is highly possible that  this is how your  parents lived each day and because it’s the way you have been brought up you believe this is all life has to offer. There's a great lesson I drew from a movie I once watched called “The Matrix". This was from a scene between Morpheus, a mentor, and Neo, his student. Neo has just woken up and discovered that what he thought was reality was just a world that had been pulled over his eyes to shield him from the truth. Morpheus wants Neo to let go of what he used to think of as "reality," his mundane, day-to-day existence, where his true purpose was neither recognized nor realized. I want you to create a new world, a new reality, where you recognize that you have a purpose for being on this planet, and realize that your purpose is waiting for you to figure it out.

If you don't know your purpose, then your first purpose is to get a purpose. When you look at the lives of the most successful people who ever lived, you can see that they had a definite purpose and they knew it. Some examples include Jesus Christ, his purpose was spiritual, and stated in John 10:10, which reads: "I have come that you might have life, and that you might have it more abundantly." Henry Ford's purpose was to mass produce, mass distribute and have cars mass consumed whilst Mother Teresa's purpose was to care for and comfort the poor, sick and needy all over the world.

I don't want you to confuse a purpose with a goal. Goals are great and I believe setting goals is crucial to achieving any kind of success. But goals alone, left by themselves, can be indiscriminate and undirected. You can have hundreds of goals and I hope you do, but you may have only one purpose that you work for your entire life. That purpose should be the underlying core that gives your goals direction and meaning.

Discovering your purpose will put your life into a crystal-clear perspective. Your life should not be another statistic that adds to the sad story of the graveyard.  Graveyards are filled with books that were never written, songs that were never sung, words that were never spoken, and things that were never done.  Make a commitment to make sure that you empty yourself with all that you have been endowed with before you leave this planet.

You have talents and gifts that no one else can offer. There are things you can do that no one else is capable of doing quite the way you can do them. Don't rob this earth of your purpose by taking it to the grave with you. You see, we all have a purpose, a reason for living, breathing and existing. We all have unique talents and gifts that were created and given to us to be shared. Our task is to understand this and figure out what our purpose is. We owe it to the universe and to ourselves. Finding your purpose is preeminent to your greatness.
