Our purpose


I recently did a presentation for my team about “working on purpose” which was one of the topics debated in our company culture ambassador summit.  Just being able to do the presentation for the staff meeting was a great accomplishment for me.  I overcame my fear and left my comfort zone to learn the skills of public speaking.

Why do we need to find our purpose? In order to survive in this complex and ambiguous world, we need a motivation to make our lives meaningful.  Regardless our age or status, we ought to search and practice our purpose to thrive.

Living on purpose

We each have a main purpose which is to grow and give.  It is imperative to find the time to improve ourselves daily.  We must find what we are passionate about, do it with love, and share that passion with others.

I have found what I was born to do and I am improving myself every day and it brings me joy.  I am also determined to keep that learning process ongoing.  If we pay attention to the little details, life can teach us.  We just have to open ourselves to the learning experience. Two months ago, I did not know anything about the blogging world, now I am embarking on that challenging adventure and I am so eager to learn and be better at it.

As the new year is approaching, let us grow and become a better version of ourselves.  Let us take the time to share with our heart.  Let us share quality time with our loved ones.  Let us make a difference in the lives of those who need us.  Let us be a great example.  Let us spread joy and love around us. Let us live our lives purposefully.
