“What Is Your Purpose”


“The two most important days of your life – the day that you’re born, and the day that you figure out why you were born.

Everyone has a purpose in life.  Everyone has unique and specific talents, abilities, and interests that help guide them toward fulfilling their purpose.

What is your purpose in life?  What are you going to do to help improve the lives of others?  What are you going to do to make the world a better place?

The single most important thing you can do in life is to figure out what your purpose is.  The second most important thing you can do is to help other people figure out what is theirs.”     (Coach Frank DiCocco)



“A hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in the bank … but the world may be a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child.”    (Forest Witcraft)



“The courage of life is often a less dramatic spectacle than the courage of a final moment; but it is no less that a magnificent mixture of triumph and tragedy.  A man does what he must — in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures — and that is the basis of all human morality.”    (John Fitzgerald Kennedy)



“Maybe there is more to a person than a body and a mind.  Maybe something else figures into the mix— not a soul, exactly, but a spirit that hints you might one day be greater, stronger than you are now.  A promise; a potential.”     (Jodi Picoult, Keeping Faith)



“God isn’t going to ask you how he created the earth.  He already knows.  He’s going to ask, ‘What did you do with what I created?’  If we’re leaving a footprint that destroys the earth, we’ve failed to be good stewards.”     (Rich Cizik)



“If not you … then who?”    (Marianne Williamson)
