Concentration of Purpose (#PowerandPurpose)

A purpose allows you to focus your life.  It gives you a track to run on.    I often find that I don't have enough time to do everything I want to do.  This is because I fall for the lie of the world which says  “You can have it all!”

You can’t have it all.  It’s not true.  You cannot have it all.  Selection is the name of the game and you have to choose what you’re going to build your life around.  Don’t try to have it all.  You can’t do everything in life.  The Good News is God doesn’t expect you to do everything in life.  And on top of that, there’s only a few things worth doing in the first place.  When you get a purpose,  it allows you to focus, to concentrate your life.  Because when you develop a purpose statement for your life, it defines not only what you do but what you don’t do.  It eliminates a bunch of the trivia.    I have discovered that most people don’t intend to waste their life.  They don’t intentionally mess up.  They don’t intentionally sabotage their own life.  They don’t intentionally blow it.  But they do it because they get distracted.  They get distracted from what’s really important.  We’re going to talk about that next week, helping you to clarify what are your own values that are really important to you.

If you want to make a difference in your life and you want to find fulfillment, you must be a focused person.
