Making Impacts: The Essential Asset To Living A Purposeful Life..
"When you love people and have that desire to make a profound and positive impact upon the world, then you will have accomplished the meaning and purpose of your living"
While reading the book " Go suck a lemon", an emotional intelligence recommended piece of masterclass written by Michael Cornwall, I noticed that the end of each chapters, the author was always writing "it will take the force of will to do that."
I never completely understood this statement until I got to chapter 12 which was talking about happiness. It will take a force of will to be happy, too..? I reasoned...
However, I came to the conclusion that what the author meant by "force of will" is forcing a good thing to happen whether or not your feelings agree to it at first.
Most times, our initial feeling don't give us the opportunity to do something productive but after forcing it, we will later be grateful we did such thing.
Basically, it will take the force of will to pray, to read, or even to write as a writer, and without doing so, one literally can't make impacts.
As humans, you won't always feel like doing something productive or valuable but using the force of will is the first step to being successful.
Determination could also mean applying a force of will. Determine to be productive and successful whether or not you feel like it and you will end up feeling like it. This way, make sure you are making an impact with your determination.
Juxtaposing this, to the definition of Impacts, which is the action of one object coming forcibly into contact with another, I couldn't help but believe how essential it is to make a meaningful and more fufilled posts
Sometimes ago, I was asking some sets of people what they would rather pursue first between wealth, impact, and fame. A lot of people picked fame and wealth but only few people picked impact then it dawned on me that not many people understand the principles of making impact while fulfilling purpose.
I had to patiently explain to them that the first on the list should be to make impact before allowing fame and wealth to come into the picture.
Does that mean that fame and wealth is a bad thing even while fulfilling purpose?
No! Hang on!
Being wealthy and famous while fulfilling purpose is totally fine but that shouldn't be your top most priority. You shouldn't seek to make fame or wealth when you've not made impact at all.
Your first priority should be to please God and to make impacts and every other thing like fame and wealth shall be added unto it.
Just a quick reminder:
You won't always make the impact that you are meant to make if you pursue fame and wealth on the journey to fulfilling your purpose.
Got value..? Let me know in the comment section.
