What in the World are You Doing?
Here is the typical life - typical, though not everybody does it this way. But for the most part, lives generally go something like this:
That's the basic life, isn't it? Don't email me. I know there is more to it, but that is about it for most people. I have one question:
What in the world are you doing?
I mean, what are you doing besides the typical "enjoying yourself while you are waiting to die" scenario?
What I believe sets the successful apart is that they don't just live the average life. They don't just pass time. They have something compelling in their life that drives them - something that gives them an answer when they are asked that question:
What in the world are you doing?
I'm helping children.
I'm creating a business that supports many families.
I lead a church.
I am defending our liberties.
I am raising great children.
I'm teaching others to improve their lives.
I help people have fun.
I create memories for people.
In other words, successful people always come down to this: I help other people by (fill in your purpose here).
What in the world are you doing? If you want to be successful, you need to be able to answer that by describing how you help others. Because if you aren't helping others - if you aren't making a difference - you are just taking up space, eating food, and waiting to die.
Here's the question for you to answer this week and what to do with your answer:
What in the world are you doing?
If you know, then you are good to go - live it and make a difference!
If you don't know, then maybe you need to give some reflection on what you are doing, what your life is about, and how you can burst out of the mundane bubble you live in!
After all, don't you want to know what in the world you are doing here?
