Succeed On Purpose
It hadn't occured to me until I thought about it, that success doesn't just happen. It has to be based on something. Forget all the stuff you've heard about hard work, focus, determination, discipline and all the other ingredients or catalysts for success. All those things are nothing, if you don't have a PURPOSE.
I looked up the synonyms for the word purpose and found out that one of the synonyms is the word "aim". I looked up the meaning of the word aim and found this; as a verb, it means to have the intention of achieving. As a noun, it means a desired outcome.
Success therefore is a function of purpose. Without a purpose, it means you wake up every day and just walk or run around like a headless chicken, with no particular desired outcome in mind. Without a purpose, one sees no reason for discipline. Without a purpose, it is very unlikely that someone will have determination to do anything, or have the focus to do anything. But when one has a purpose, they have a reason to wake up early in the morning; they have a reason to acquire discipline - discipline in time management, discipline in being proactive, discipline in being focused, etc.
Living life without a purpose is like playing football without goalposts; what's the aim?
Find your purpose today, then succeed in your purpose on purpose!
