There are a lot of unsaid things when it comes to the question of purpose. Most people misconstrue the true meaning of purpose and are getting confused on the mission of purpose on earth. It begs the insightful question, what really is purpose and how can purpose be achieved?
Every other thing you read about purpose is just the tip or maybe half a tip and something else. Little wonder you are still stuck on the true meaning of purpose. Paul Shola Oguntade slayed this with his heavenly knowledge.
HERE IS WHAT NO ONE EVER TOLD YOU BEFORE.
Purpose connotes a deliberate, conscious, coordinated and organized action taken to ensure a precise set of outcomes. Therefore, there should not be a mention or thought of purpose if we cannot accept creation and a creator.
But this is the gist; if we are all true to ourselves and are ready to be original, we all have unique lives, interests, abilities, passions, experiences, drives, personalities etc. All of these determine how we live our lives and for what we live it; our individuality. So we have established two things; choice and individuality. This means that every human can choose the kind of life he/she wants to live within the framework of their individuality. When a man decides on how he/she wants to live and what to live for, we can say such individual is living intentionally or purposefully; this is when we say a man is living for a purpose.
There is a reason (purpose) behind mankind’s creation. If there should be any purpose any individual should be looking for or trying to discover, it should simply be the reason behind our creation. The only and next concern for every individual should now be to find out answers to a certain question: “What is my individuality?” This is to ask “how am I special and how can I align it with the purpose of my kind (Mankind)?
That’s all! There is no further mystery behind purpose, and all the ambiguities that have been created around it over the years are very unnecessary. Our concern should be in three places only:
1. God has set a pattern of how we all should live our lives and express our individuality. What is it?
2. What is my individuality or how am I special amongst all men?
3. How can these two align in all that I do in life?
So really, it is not solely about what career you choose or what job or business you are into. The idea of purpose spans beyond your career or a single activity; it extends fully into your entire existence and all the roles you play and find yourself in per time. Career and similar activities are just channels for expressing purpose, most times a major and obvious channel in our lives.
