When you know the purpose for which you were born, it gives you a favorable disposition in life. Are you living your purpose, or a life of mediocrity? Your identity and purpose is your gift to the world. Our purpose is that deepest dimension within us that tells us who we are, where we came from, why we’re here, and where we’re going. Purpose fills us with passion, drive and direction. When all else seems unsettled, uncertain, or impermanent, purpose gives us the will not just to live, but to live long and well. It’s not a grand concept reserved for a gifted few, but something each one of us possesses, needing only to be discovered. I want to challenge you to walk in the most powerful principle in life and that's your purpose!

Purpose what does it all mean. Purpose is the thing that inspires you to get up every morning. It keeps you focused on the end result and not the obstacles you face. It makes you do the necessary things to improve and grow as a person. It drives you daily to become more than just average. It motivates you to become extraordinary and effective in all your endeavors. Purpose is the driving force that makes all successful people reach their goals in life. Purpose means intentionally and by design. You can truely design the life that you want and are well able to pull that life off.

As the The Purpose Planner I am always looking for purposeful living lessons to share with my audiences. Floyd Money Mayweather has taught me a great lesson this week. His team and fans were yelling Hard Work, Dedication, Hard Work, Dedication, Hard Work, Dedication at the post fight interview. Floyd Mayweather had just beaten an undefeated fighter named Canelo. Floyd has continuely said that there is a big difference betweeen being a talented fighter and being a gifted fighter. Floyd Money Mayweather is the World Champion, 45 have tried, and 45 have failed to beat him. Why? I believe that Floyd Money Mayweather discovered he had a gift to fight. Because of the gift he discovered that fighting is his purpose in life. The lesson I learned from hearing his story I will never forget.

Once you have discovered your purpose in life, it does not stop there. It will take Hard Work and Dedication to fulfill that purpose on a high level. For this lesson I learned from Floyd Mayweather I am internally grateful . I will teach others this same lesson in my presentations. What your gifted to do is your purpose in life, you must commit to Hard work and Dedication in order to fulfill that purpose on a high level. Once you have discovered your purpose in life, begin to say to yourself daily. For me to be successful on a high level it will take Hard Work and Dedication, Hard Work and Dedication, Hard Work and Dedication.

Then commit to putting in that Hard work and Dedication to becoming your best Self you can become. Living up to your full potential. There is nothing like discovering your purpose in life. Then impacting the lives of others with that purpose. Discovering your purpose is that thing that makes us feel like our life matters. Your purpose can add not only years to your life but life to your years. When it comes to your purpose in life, success won't just happen, remember it will also take Hard Work and Dedication.
