We need to have complete certainty that things will work out, not because we are righteous or wise, but because of the time, the effort, the prayers, and the tools we are using. From the moment we are given awareness about some bigger picture or mission, we have to have complete focus on what to do to get to that place.
~ Yehuda Berg
Each of us is born great but many of us choose to live small for all sorts of reasons or excuses. Fortunately, there are people around you who are great but may not be famous or rich if you just take a look right now or take a moment to look within you. All the popular great people in history that we know about or those in our communities have lived for a strong purpose. It may be religious, environmental, economic, political, for civil rights, or for any cause. Living for a higher purpose goes beyond insulating yourself from the numerous challenges of life, it gives you a reason to be passionate about life, a reason to get up in the morning. It gives you something to contribute to the world and something that gives you immense satisfaction. To live a more satisfying life is not just about making the world a better place. Living for a cause makes your life better. There is a concept in personal development called finding your “true north.” It means identifying with certain values, beliefs or behaviors that come from within that are going to remain constant regardless of what turbulence is going on around you in life. It keeps you grounded even when you are having issues with relationships, career, money or anything else. Find your true North today, for some of us it is Reflections on Adinkra and the Adinkrahene Organisation adopting orphanages across Africa and promoting Agile, Agility (Scrum). Remember, consistency is the evidence of belief. Keep smiling at the person in the mirror.
Dreams don’t have deadlines. I’m thinking of doing bigger and better things and having more fun with it.
