CHAPTER 1

Purpose


I have invested forty years researching people who are powerful, wealthy, celebrities, famous, millionaires, billionaires, genius, high achievers, successful, prosperous and winners. My research has concluded, purpose is a major contributing factor in them being able to accomplish what they have.

Purpose means you have a reason to get up in the morning even when you do not feel like it. Purpose means you have a reason to deal with challenges, situations, and circumstances during your day. You won't let anybody get you down for too long.

Purpose means instead of hanging out at night drinking, drugging, men chasing women or women chasing men, instead of doing that, you will be at home reading a success book, maybe taking an online college course or working on your goals, then go to bed on time at night so you can get up in the morning and continue working on your purpose.


Purpose

Each person has been created for a purpose. Once you find your purpose, your life will be more fulfilling. Your purpose is part of the universal system. Everything in the universe has purpose.

In order for our system here on earth to run effectively, everyone has to pitch in. From the person who keeps our streets clean to the person who pumps gas in your car, each one of them are fulfilling a purpose. Find your purpose.

CHAPTER 2

Find Your Purpose


To determine your purpose, here are a few things to consider:

You could do your purpose seven days a week for no pay.

You love doing your purpose and are excited about it.

You think about your purpose when you wake up in the morning, you think about your purpose during the day, and you think about your purpose when you go to bed at night.

You would pay me to do your purpose every day.

You walk your purpose, eat your purpose, breathe your purpose, and dream about your purpose.

Your purpose calls you day and night. A silent voice within you calls you to achieve your purpose.

Having a purpose each day provides you the following:

1. Increased health

2. Energy

3. Enthusiasm

4. Youthfulness

5. Positiveness

6. Success

7. Prosperity

8. Financial reward

9. Positive self-esteem

10. Positive self-image


Purpose Morning, Day and Night

To stay vibrant and energized, you need a purpose for your life each day. Not having purpose each day is a quick way to develop spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical atrophy.

People who retire and no longer have purpose, their bodies seemingly shut down. Purpose each day gives your life meaning.

Purpose. Even if it takes you ten years to get your doctorate degree, you get out of bed in the morning to go to class. Purpose. If you become discouraged, you get out of bed to accomplish your purpose.

Purpose will give you a reason to do the following:

1. Stop being an alcoholic.

2. Stop being a crack addict.

3. Stop being lazy.

4. Stop getting into trouble and help you stay out of trouble.

5. Get off welfare.

6. Get out of debt.

7. Stop being a drug addict.

8. Stop being depressed (depression).

9. Stop being suicidal.

10. Stop being homicidal.

11. Stop going to jail.

12. Be a productive, contributing member of society.

13. Stop making excuses for failure.


Purpose will give you a reason to do the following:

1. Pay your child support.

2. Take care of your family.

3. Get your college degree.

4. Start your corporation.

5. Run for a political office.

6. Become a millionaire.

7. Become a billionaire.

8. Win a gold medal in the Olympics.

9. Take off weight.

10. Look better, feel better, and do better

11. Get into shape and improve your health.

12. Go to church and pray each day.


Purpose each day will give you a reason to get up in the morning. Purpose will give you a reason to not let people get you down for too long during the daytime.

How do you find your purpose?

Find out what you would pay someone to let you do each day, or you do not have to be paid to do it. Your purpose must get you out of bed in the morning no matter how you feel, how tired you may be, or how much you would rather stay in bed.

The Law of purpose means, rules for yourself, you abide by laws like:

1. I have a reason for my time.

2. My time is an investment.

3. My time is money.

4. I do not give my time to just anybody and anything.

5. I plan my day.

6. I work my plan each day.

7. My tomorrow is my today, for my yesterday has given me my today.

8. I think, eat, sleep, read, listen to, visit, dress, walk, and talk only that which will help me to accomplish my purpose.

9. I do not allow people, places, or things to interfere with my purpose.

10. I ask myself these questions when making choices and decisions:

a. Is this going to stop me from achieving my purpose?

b. Is this person, place, vice, behavior, action, or statement going to hurt or help me to achieve or accomplish my purpose?

c. Is this choice or decision going to stop or help me achieve my purpose?


Question yourself:

a. Is what I am doing helping me to achieve my purpose?

b. Is what I am saying helping my purpose?

c. Are the choices I am making helping me achieve my purpose?

d. Are the decisions I am making helping me achieve my purpose?

e. Is this person hurting or helping my purpose?

f. Is this relationship hurting or helping my purpose?


Purpose

I do not feel like getting out of bed. Purpose will get you out of bed.

I want to take today off. Purpose will make you work that day.

I want to be paid for what I'm doing. Purpose will keep you working for no pay, seven days a week, five to ten hours a day, until you are paid, if that's part of your objective.

I do not feel like going on with this. Purpose will keep you going.

Its cold outside, icy and a lot of snow. Purpose will make you go out in the cold, ice, and snow to achieve your purpose.

It's storming outside. Purpose will make you go out in the storms and heavy rain to accomplish your purpose.

It's hot outside. Purpose will take you out in the severe heat to accomplish your purpose.

They did me wrong. Purpose in your life will help you rebound from unfair and unjust experiences with people.

They hurt me. Purpose in your life will help you heal so you can accomplish your purpose.

I feel discouraged. Purpose in your life will help you feel encouraged.

I feel suicidal. Purpose in your life will give you a reason to live.

I feel like killing someone. Purpose in your life will stop you from taking another person's life.

I have a bad credit score. Purpose in your life will help you improve your credit score.

I feel like quitting. Purpose in your life will keep you going until you finish and win.

7. Will this decision hurt or help my purpose?

16. If I drink this alcohol, will it hurt or help my purpose?

17. If I buy that item, will it hurt or help my purpose?

18. If I loan this, will it hurt or help my purpose?


If I do this, will it hurt or help me to achieve my purpose?

Purpose in your life will help you look forward to each day.

Purpose in your life will help you help yourself get out of bed in the morning.

Purpose each day will make you feel like you have something important to accomplish that day.

Purpose each day will give you a feeling of contributing to society. Even if you're a person who cleans the paper out the gutters in New York City, you have a purpose, an honest job, and are making a positive contribution to society.

How beautiful would Manhattan be if no one cleaned all the debris (trash) off the sidewalks and gutters?

I was in New York City meeting with Bert Padell, whose clients have included Joe DiMaggio, Robert De Niro, Madonna, Luther Vandross, Britney Spears, P. Diddy, and many more celebrities.

I happened to notice a street sweeper. He had a broom in one hand and an item he swept the trash in, in the other hand.

I had the opportunity to talk to this man as he swept the sidewalks and cleaned trash out the gutters in Manhattan, New York City. He was a very clean and articulate man. He had a personal happiness and contentment about himself and seemingly took pride in his career field as a professional sidewalk and gutter cleaner.

As I spoke with him, he informed me he had a wife and five children. He was a spiritual man and informed me that each morning he prayed and asked God to give him the ability to keep the streets of Manhattan clean so tourists would enjoy their stay while visiting his hometown.

The sidewalks and gutters of New York City were an extension of his home. He was a part of the overall tourist experience; he rationalized that if he did not keep his area clean, the overall New York City experience would not be a great one.

He had purpose each day. As a matter of fact, he and his family are the type of people I would invite over for dinner.

He had purpose to make your visit to Manhattan a clean experience. He also had purpose because of his wife and five children.

Find your purpose.
