When you discover your purpose, no one can encourage you before you start pursuing it.
Life is a business. You must be serious with your life. Luke 19:11
These are five factors that hinder purpose:
If your environment does not support your purpose, change or leave it. Indications to right environment: Availability of opportunities to express your purpose. Confidence to express yourself. Your purpose is making impact.
- LACK OF PERSONAL GROWTH
Know more about your purpose. Learn more about your profession. Have knowledge about things that will support your purpose. Learn from successful people around you. Attend seminar, go for training. Read books that support your purpose.
- LACK OF DISCIPLINE
There are some sacrifices you need to make in order to fulfill your purpose.
Pay now, play later. Or play now, pay later. Either way, you must pay.
- WRONG ASSOCIATION
Who are your friends? Evil communication corrupt good manner.
- INSTANT GRATIFICATION
If you want to fulfill purpose, you have to be patient. Believe in process, don’t rush. Be ready to pay the price, the short cut will short cut you.
