Live Your Life With Respect For Purpose
Live Your Life With Respect For Purpose.
Purpose guide our life’s decisions, influence our behavior, shape goals, offer a sense of direction, and create meaning. For some people, purpose is connected to vocation—meaningful, satisfying work. For others, their purpose lies in their responsibilities to their family or friends. Others seek meaning through spirituality or religious beliefs. Some people may find their purpose clearly expressed in all these aspects of life.
But we cannot become refined if we lack the direction of purpose, this is because every man who is being celebrated for being successful always have a reason for their existence, and why they must fulfil it.
I have come to understand in this generation or age we are now, many persons have little or no time to give attention to things that matters to their purpose. Either in career, business, education and family in order to reach their destination.

“Every direction leads to nowhere! And if you must live a life to become worthy of achievement, you must respect your purpose” – Beloved Desmond
This is to say, when people lack purpose they lack:
- They lack respect for direction
- They lack respect to aim and focus
- They follow every direction that leads to now where
- They want follow shortcut to the top
- They waste their times on social things with no value and to invest in things that would not improve their future.
- They want to be everywhere it happening, and ignore where it matters to destiny and purpose.
This is because most times we are influence by the outcome achievement of some other persons long input of their purpose.
Take for instance, many parents would encourage their children to become a music artist because of the notion they could rise to fame if they go into commercial music, and earn big money from music, even when it is not in their calling or purpose. But because they believe if this young man can make it in music, then my child can.
They forget that everyone has a calling that serve for a specific time and even in same purpose, everyone has a specific area at which they’ll become prosperous if they follow their own purpose, not trying to what is not your destiny.
So, this could be why people abuse their purpose. They want to be at the top in a flash light. They want to get fame and wealth at a short period, comparing those who have gone ahead. They would rather abandon their purpose and follow someone else purpose because they feel this thing pays more than what I am going for.
But the true fact is this, your purpose should be your drive for living, and not for the financial benefit you gain. And if you follow a purpose because you feel it has much financial benefit to meet your wants and desire, you only have a lesser idea of direction why you do what you do.
Today, I want to discuss with you respecting your purpose in life
What defines respect?
Respect is a positive feeling or action shown towards someone or something considered important, or held in high esteem or regard; it conveys a sense of admiration for good or valuable qualities; and it is also the process of honoring someone by exhibiting care, concern, or consideration for their needs or feelings.
A Sense For Purpose
A 2016 study published in the Journal of Research in Personality found that people who felt a sense of purpose accumulated more wealth than those who feel as though their lives lack meaning.
The researchers discovered that individuals with a sense of purpose have a higher income and a bigger net worth than those who feel as though their lives lack meaning.
Even when they controlled for known factors that predict financial success–like demographics and personality–they found a sense of purpose made a big difference in a person’s financial life.
And the difference in wealth seemed to span the test of time. Over the course of 10 years, people with a sense of purpose continued to have higher incomes and bigger nest eggs than other people. The researchers suspect people who feel their lives have meaning are goal-oriented. Looking at their long-term goals likely motivates them to develop better financial habits.
What Is Your Purpose?
Instead of living for the weekends, or counting down the years until retirement, you need a reason to get out of bed every day. And that reason needs to stem beyond money. After all, what are you going to do with the money you earn? You need purpose beyond accumulating wealth just for the sake of it.
The good news is, you don’t have to set out to change the world to have a meaningful life. Maybe your purpose is to brighten people’s day at the store where you work. Or maybe your purpose is to cut people’s hair so they can look and feel their best.
If you aren’t sure what your purpose is, spend a little time reflecting on what you want your legacy to be. When you’re 90 years and you look back on your life, what will you want to think about?
Not only will a sense of purpose help you live a more fulfilling life, it could also provide you with some added economic benefits. This is to say; every purpose has its price you must pay to fulfill it. It has it’s sacrifices to be made in it, it has its challenges, but also has its glory. You shouldn’t run from it.
I was praying for clarity of purpose. I never wanted to become a Teacher of the Bible, when He told me in a vision, He told me plus 3-other things, and I despised the Teacher part, because I thought it was a boring ministry gift and not important. I wanted to begin as a Prophet. But you see, I realized that every man is only given a ministry or an office his make-up already carries. God built your personality with the gifts of the purposes He wants you to walk in.
I already was crazy about knowledge. I would spend hours studying about a subject. I just can’t settle with any surface information. I would find out things about people, why they are the way they are. I’ll ask questions and follow my inner hunger. I’ll discuss somethings with someone, and we’ll part ways, but they’ll forget what we talked about, but I’ll go back and get into google.
Crazy, crazy for knowledge, crazy to know, crazy to find out why. Sometimes, I looked into my past experiences and would research why, how, when about them. It drove me into a lot of areas I shouldn’t study on and I had learnt about the depths of subjects before I knew it. Coupled with my challenges which just opens me up more.
But it was clear there was no better deal for me than this. Then I’ll speak with people, and they’ll say you’re inspiring, you’re vast. But the truth is; “This is my purpose.”
Your purpose may not be widely appreciated, even when you begin it, but if you were built with that set of power, you cannot stop it. You shouldn’t curse it, you shouldn’t despise it, you should first like Paul did, Magnify your office. You’re the one to make others respect it and get blessed by it.
It is your love for it that brings you respect from it. Never despise your purpose. Others may, but let it not be you. You may despise it in your mind, but don’t stay thinking despise for too long. It’s part of the growth process.
Today, I encourage you to have a deep love for going after your purpose. That is how God would only bless you to have good success and go far in your career. A diligent man can only become successful in following God mandate and not what people or the society decide.
If you feel you have been on the wrong path, then now you realize you have been living someone dreams. Struggling to find passion in something means it’s not your calling now change your orientation and pray to God for direction to live your life he His purpose for you.
I see you succeeding! Keep winning, cheer and don’t give up.
I am still your Friend and Brother, Beloved Desmond.
