I saw this video on Facebook and I thought it was such a great follow up to my post “Leadership, Where Do I Start?”
Before you watch the video (If you have not already seen it) let me ask you a few very important questions… Are you passionate about anything in your life? Have you figured out what your purpose is? Why should you pursue your purpose? With those questions in mind, Take the next 6 minutes (roughly) and watch this video.

If that video struck a chord in you the same way it did me, then we can take the next step.
To answer the question “why should you pursue your purpose?”, you have to first recognize that you HAVE a purpose! To recognize that you have a purpose is to also recognize that you were MADE for a purpose. This leads us to recognize further that if we were made, then there must be a MAKER. That maker is the God who created the heavens and the Earth! That Maker, God himself, Yahweh, The Great I AM created you, knows you, loves you, and wants to do great things through you!
If you have questions about this, I’d be happy to talk with you more, just send me an e-mail or comment below.
The God of the universe loves you like no other! He also loves the people in your sphere of influence! Only you can reach those individuals. Only you can show them hope for a better tomorrow. How better to do that than to live your own life in a relentless pursuit of the passions that He placed within you? If you don’t, who will?
Just look around you. Look at all the friends and family and coworkers you see living their lives in the doldrums, busy, living paycheck-to-paycheck, just getting by, in debt up their eyeballs. Maybe that’s you today. Maybe it’s time for you to step up and lead. Maybe you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired. You can and you should make a decision TODAY to change. To take charge. To start living intentionally for excellence! Congratulations! Today is a new day! CARPE DIEM! Seize the day! Because others are counting on you! That’s why you should pursue your purpose! Now go out and DO IT!
