A HEAVY ONE
This is going to be a heavy post. I’ve been jamming on this topic for the last couple of weeks and have come to a certain conclusion. This life is way to temporary to be taken advantage of.
What do I mean by this? How can you take advantage of life? This comes from my observations of the people I interact with on a day to day basis. I’ve realized that some people have gotten a grasp on what they are here for and have zeroed in on making their impact on the world. However, I also see people who are have no idea what they want to do or who they want to help, and I realize now that it’s because some of these people are in a place that doesn’t push them to figure out the answer to these questions.
Maybe it’s the community I’ve been raised in, a classic middle to upper class area. I find that most of the millennials I speak with are all wandering around looking for purpose rather than actually finding anything. At the end of the day, I ask myself that if half of these people actually found what they were “searching” for, would they actually want it? Would they actually leave their comfort zone and work hard towards achieving their purpose?
I have become fixated on figuring out why I was created and I truly believe that everyone was placed on this earth with purpose. But what happens when we have a generation of people who don’t even want purpose? Who claim that’s what they lack most but actually don’t even want it.
AS GARY WOULD SAY
It’s dangerous. A guy I follow that you’ve most likely heard of, Gary Varynerchuck, speaks out often of his biggest fear being regret at the end of the road. We are always going to have things that we wish we would have done, or wish we would have achieved, and Gary comes from a more entrepreneurial perspective by relating this to those who always wanted to start a business but never did. However, I take it deeper, I take it to the level of worrying that I’m not pushing myself as far as I can go to reach my God given potential. THAT, is scary. The gifts, the talents, the health that I’ve been blessed with, wasted because I didn’t want to leave my comfort zone.
I’ll probably continue to touch on this topic in upcoming posts, but for now I’ll leave it here.
This life is precious. It’s beautiful. Don’t take advantage of being comfortable.
