Purpose provides meaning. Have a purpose and a meaning behind what you’re doing. Move forward fearlessly with intention, confidence and absolute faith. Having a purpose is what moves and excites you. It’s what gives your life meaning. It’s what gets you up in the morning and gets you doing what you need to do to make things happen according to plan. Living on purpose changes everything.

You’ve got to get in the habit of being prepared for opportunity. If you’re not prepared and an opportunity presents itself, you miss out. And you never know when a golden opportunity is going to come your way. Discover what it is that will set you on fire and really make your life transition into something that’s vivid and explosive and exhilarating. Most people just go through the motions of life. Why? Because they’re afraid. That’s it in a nutshell.
Fear holds more people back than anything else. They only do more of what they’ve already done because they’re hesitant. They’re holding back their fearful of stepping out and really going for it. They retreat to the life they know, one that has only minimal requirements and they remain miserably comfortable. They keep doing the same things over and over again because that’s what they know, that’s what they’re used to, that’s what they’re comfortable in doing. Yet when you really begin question these folks about their choices, you soon realize that they are anything but happy.

There’s only going to be one of you ever and forever. Why not be all you can be? You’ve got one shot at this thing called life and you’ve got to move ahead fearlessly if you want to get the most out of your experience and make the greatest contribution to the world at large.

Figure out what it is that would make you the most fulfilled and make that your purpose. And go after it with all your heart and mind. Figure out how to integrate your purpose into what you love to do. Okay, so you want to change the world. But don’t you want to do it in a way that fulfills you, doing something you’re good at? You have many abilities and talents and you can reach your goals- no matter what they may be and no matter what difficulties or obstacles your face on the way.

You’ve got to know what you want and you’ve got to decide to get it. Then, get up every day and work at it. Work towards the dream, work towards the ultimate outcome. It’s never too late to get clear about what you really want and to begin moving towards it.

Believe in yourself. Believe in your dreams. Believe that if you don’t have what it takes right now, you’ll figure it out. Stop worrying about things and just go for it. Dreams are just that until you create a plan for making them materialize. Pay attention. Learn from the successes, failures and experiences of other people. This is an efficient way to learn that reduces the time it takes to make things happen. You’ve got to believe it’s possible or you’ll never achieve it. Belief is the number one key.

You can have a ho-hum life or you can design a life and make it a masterpiece. Don’t just settle for earning a living — that’s what everyone does. Deep down most people want to win and they want to win big. But there’s a difference between wanting and having. Everybody wants. But few get to have. Those that do have, paid the price to get it.

To have whatever life you want, you’ve got to start with a plan. You’ve got to decide on your exact future. You’ve got to determine the outcome in advance. When you become an unstoppable force in your mind, you’ll attract the people, the circumstances and the conditions to help you even more. It’s the universe stepping up to help you answer your dream. Be open and receptive and tap this boundless resource. Don’t let anything get in your way. Decide what you really want and go for it go for it with everything we’ve got. Never surrender. And the life you want will ultimately be yours, if you stick with it and everyday will be more meaningful and enjoyable.
