Enlivening human potential for a better world
It seems like the question I have been asking myself my entire life is ” why am I alive” or “what is the purpose of existence.” If I were to write a book, I think it would be titled ” Finding my why.” My son is who now six as of October of 2018, always asks when I tell him to do something ” WHY? ” I always seem to respond in a frustrating manner, but I understand his question. Why do we do the things we do?
For me, I often question the reason we work, often times in jobs we don’t enjoy, only to retire never living our reason. Our dreams, our gifts, our purpose get lost in the shuffle of mundane. The lack of understanding of our very own why, leads to our kids never understanding theirs and so on and so on.. I ask this question and others because I have experienced it firsthand. From corporate work to owning an operating several businesses to competing as an athlete. What is my why? What is the reason for obtaining “success” –> what is success? Do I even want to be successful?
My hope is to help others answer this question for themselves. The question being, ” Why am I here? ” In doing so, I believe I will have answered my own question.
I believe life holds incredible potential.
I believe we are here for more then chasing a paycheck, only to retire with our dreams buried with us. I believe we are to live with passion, with love, and with light. Not just on Friday or Saturday, but everyday.
I have a belief that we are all here for a reason. I believe that each of us has a unique purpose and unique gifts. Our purpose on Earth is uncover these gifts, and share them with the world. Each of us hold answers to the problems of the world. Those answers reside in our gifts. Uncover them. Use them with love. Together, we can make the world a better place.
You are the gift,
