Because I needed to hear/read this tonight and thought that maybe you needed to read this, too:
Challenges come in the form of questions. In this case, you know the questions. They aren’t new. You’ve thought of them during some dark night, when you just couldn’t sleep.
Why are you here on earth?
What’s different about you, from anybody else?
Why are your fingerprints unlike anyone else’s on the face of the earth, or in the total course of history?
You know the questions.
And you know the answers.
Actually, it’s just one answer, and it all comes down to this: the world has never seen anyone quite like you before, and it will never see another You again.
And there is something you have to contribute to this world that the world needs from You, no matter how small or unimportant you may think you are, in the grand scheme of things.
You were born, you are breathing, you are here, because there is something you have to contribute to the world that world really really needs. At least in that place, at least in this time, at least with your style, at least with your character and stamp upon it.
Someone needs you.
Someone’s life has been, and will be, better because of you. Maybe many many “somebody”s.
Be you a health care professional, or a scientist, or engineer, or techie, or digger of ditches, it doesn’t matter. The world needs all these things, but animated specifically by your spirit, your brains, your personality, beneath and in it all.
Your purpose in life isn’t just a mattter of what kind of work you do.
It’s a matter of who you are, what kind of person you are, and whether you choose to be the best You that you can possibly be, or not.
