Purpose Is a Shield

There are people who never figure out what their purpose is. They exist. They survive. But they don’t ascribe any meaning to their lives. To cope with the mundaneness of living, they surrender themselves to distractions.

For the person with no sense of purpose, distractions are impossible to resist. They relieve the boredom of a life lived haphazardly. They provide something to focus on, albeit misguidedly. So many of us are obsessed with the frolics and foibles of celebrities we don’t know. We spend our free time distracted by things like social media, video games, television, and gambling. We rip and run the streets. We have no shield against all the distractions bombarding us.

Purpose is the shield. And that’s why you need to know what your purpose is. Even a humble worker bee knows exactly why it exists. How do you know there’s not a higher level for you? Or why couldn’t there be something bigger than yourself that you could build or contribute to? Maybe there’s some way you can inspire or help other people.

This is one reason why I encourage you to work out regularly. It summons intent. It focuses your mind on something constructive and helps you see what’s possible for your life. You make it happen, contrary to the passivity of being distracted. It puts you in a purposeful frame of mind.

I can’t tell you what your purpose is, but if you don’t know, it’s time for you to find it.

Sayonara until next time.
