What is Your Purpose?

"Life is what you make it. Always was and always will  be." Grandma Moses

Hum, great quote from an awesome artist. But honestly, it speaks so much truth.  Yet, we sometimes do not know what life is about and what is the purpose of our life.

"Purpose is a broad 'mission statement' of life. It can be as simple as the phrase: 'Make those around me happy.' No one can give you your purpose. Purpose is something you discover and embrace; it is not thrust upon you. Purpose should not be confused with goals. the purpose is the end; goals are the means to that end. Purpose in life is not overcoming weaknesses, or even using our skills well. Great athletes, writers or scientists can struggle as much as anyone else in finding purpose. Purpose is discovered in how you define your life's meaning; the goals you set to fulfill that meaning; and how you use your skills to achieve those goals. Once life's purpose is discovered, it rarely changes. Goals are achieved or adjusted for new circumstances, but purpose generally remains constant." (Christopher News Note 528)

Once you really know within the depths of your being what your purpose is, you will find a change in what you used to think would make you happy.

Why would I use these quotes on purpose for networking? Well, actually, this could and should apply to all people, not just networkers.  And seriously, Life is what you make it! So, start making your life something you can put your heart in.  Something of value.
