"I Can't Wait Any Longer"  


Purpose is the springboard to fulfillment. In the same way that necessity precipitates many inventions, the purpose inside of you should facilitate your desire to do something. It may even lead you to invent something to meet a need. The reason that your purpose is so important is because it often allows you to see something in society in a way that no one or very few people can. This means you can see a solution where others don’t even recognize a problem. Until you release your purpose, which can come in the form of an invention, a book, a business, a ministry, or some other creation, you will likely never feel fulfilled in life. Don’t stifle your happiness by being afraid to unleash your purpose.


They say there’s no time like the present. While that is true, our motivation to accomplish our goals needs to be done decently and in order. Motivation doesn’t mean just get it done – it means plan well so it’s done correctly. There is a tendency of some companies to invent something and then when that has issues, invent another invention to fix the issues caused by the original invention. It’s important to be motivated but we have to make sure that the proper reigns are placed on our eagerness to complete our assignment.


Sometimes life can hit us and we can lose sight of why we were motivated in the first place. If your purpose is to empower young people, there are many factors that can hinder your motivation. It is in these moments that you have to remember the passion you had when you finally discovered your “why.” Why did you feel compelled to be the change agent in their lives? If your purpose is to build a business, what gap did you first see that motivated you to fill that niche? If the need was present then, how much more necessary is it now?


What thoughts are compelling you to take action even if you’ve been slow to do so? Don’t allow fear or uncertainty to delay the delivery of the purpose that is inside you. Necessity is the mother of invention. So what invention are you carrying in your belly that the world is waiting on? Author Leo Buscaglia said, “Your talent is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God.”
