You have a Special GIFT
Employing it is your Purpose
Applying it to a vision is how you make a difference
and the process of discovering, employing, and applying your GIFT is called TRANSFORMATION.
Many people wander through life with no idea of why they were created. It is amazing that most aren’t even looking for the answer. That’s why I’m excited you are reading this. You are one of the few that has decided to quit drifting and to live with purpose. The great news is that you have one…everybody does.
Do you want to find your Purpose?
Then you need to discover your GIFT!
“Purpose is the reason a thing is created.”
This implies you cannot give yourself a purpose, since you didn’t create yourself. So you have to discover what is already there. To find your purpose it really helps to find what the Creator had in mind when He created you. Here’s what He has to say on the matter:
“As each one has a special gift, employ it serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace (unmerited favor) of God.”
So here is my practical definition of Purpose:
Your Purpose is to
Employ Your Special GIFT
In order to find your Purpose, you will need to answer three questions.
1. What do you want?
Believe it or not, most people don’t know what they really want. They don’t know their purpose or what will really make them happy. The result is a life without Passion. On the other hand…when you know what you want, are passionate about it, and are gifted to accomplish it, you would be amazed at what doors open for you.
2. What is your GIFT?
It is not possible to know what you want without first knowing your GIFT. It is the one talent that you can develop to greatness as determined by the very unique way you think. The desire of your heart is directly tied to the thing you are GIFTed to do. Everyone has a GIFT.
3. Who are you, really?
The foundation for determining your GIFT and what you want is discovering who you really are. You may be masking your real identity for a variety of reasons, often to the point that you don’t allow the real you to come out. The good news is that the real you is perfectly suited for your gift, and for getting what you really want.
Maybe you are looking for better relationships. Maybe you want to make a difference with your life. But the truth is that most people just want more income. No matter what you are seeking, your GIFT can provide it.
Your income is directly related to how much you use your GIFT
So, how have you tried to increase your income?
Have you tried:
- More education
- Degrees- bachelor, MBA, a doctorate
- Certificates- for IT, LEAN, six sigma, etc
- Change careers
- Start a business
- Work overtime
- Both family members work
- Second job
- Cut back/saving
None of these solve the real problem.
The REAL PROBLEM is that you are trying to make income the wrong way.
What if you found that employing your GIFT could actually lead to increasing your income? What if you found out that your God-given GIFT was actually the means for you to live the abundant life you have always wanted?
