What Were You Born to Do?

You were born with a gift, we all were. You weren’t just picked randomly and given the job to find meaning in your life, instead you were put here with a purpose.

You’re not just another human being who spends his/her time aimlessly. Instead you are the chosen one.

The one who was planted on earth to do BIG THINGS, to change lives and in return transform the world.

If you’re like most, you may have lost touch of your purpose or you may have never been acquainted with it in the first place.

Regardless of your story, it’s your job to find your purpose.

When you find your purpose, success will come easy.

You see when you find your true calling in life, you become a beast.

For instance, when Michael Jordan became acquainted with basketball, he knew he had found his calling. Hence he dominated and truly changed the game.

When Al Pacino discovered the art of acting, he knew he had discovered what he was put on this earth to do and hence he shined in every role he played.

I guess what I’m trying to say is when you find what your job on earth is; everything else will start to fall in place.

Wealth will land on your plate and you will begin to achieve great things.

Although this seems quite easy, the reason why a lot of people don’t succeed in life is because they’re not doing what they were born to do, instead they are doing something else.

By doing something else, they are robbing their chances of seeing massive success.

Think about it.

Imagine if Babe Ruth was a truck driver. Imagine if Michael Jackson was a basketball player. Imagine if Tupac Shakur was a police officer. Imagine if Oprah Winfrey was a secretary. Imagine if George Clooney was an accountant. Imagine if Richard Branson worked a 9-5.

If this was the case, we would’ve never heard of these folks. They wouldn’t have gone on to become great and the world would’ve never recognized their faces.

The reason for this is simple…

When you take on a role you’re not born to do, you’ll have a very tough time seeing success.

That’s what I think the problem with so many people is.

They chase dollar signs and hence soon find themselves to be working a job that they totally despise. Success at this endeavor is very unlikely.

The moral of this article is you have to discover what you were born to do, once you find it, lock in and perfect your craft and you will shine.

The ultimate test of life is…

Will you die having lived the life you were born to live or will you die having lived the life of someone else?

Surprisingly, a lot of people fall into the latter category. When they’re on their death bed, they soon realize that the life they lived was not the life that was intended for them.

As a result, the last emotion they feel before they pass is filled with sorrow and regret.

With that stated, if you want to avoid this fate you better wake the hell up, see things for what they really are, find yourself and find what you were born to do.

I leave you with one simple point…

It’s very hard to be a great giraffe when you were born a dog. You can try all your life, but you won’t make it. A dog can only strive to become the best dog. So with that in mind, stop chasing something that you aren’t and instead aim to become what you are destined to be.
