“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”
Some people are blessed to learn the reason why they were born at a relatively young age. For others, it might take years. Given that our time on earth is finite, perhaps the two most important questions you can ever ask yourself are, “Why am I here?” And “What am I going to do about it?”
- Do you know why you were born? How much time, effort, and energy are you devoting to answering this “why” question? If you don’t know, then you aren’t investing enough.
- Once you have an answer to the first question, the focus changes to; “how much time, effort, and energy are you devoting to living a life fully and completely aligned with your “why?” If it is less than 100%, you will never be able to live a fulfilled life.
I can guarantee this. Not one of us was born to go to school, work for forty years, retire, and then die. Those are the transactional elements of life. They are not the reason. All of us were born for a purpose, and we have to figure out what it is. Otherwise, the transactions don’t matter.
