Book Notes | Be Clear Why You’re Here: Success Principle No. 2
This chapter challenged me to think about why I am here on earth. What is my purpose of living? As told by Brian Tracy, you need to decide your major definite purpose in life and then organize all your activities around it. The book suggested that everything we do must be an expression of our purpose. If an activity doesn’t fit the criteria, we should not work on it. Our purpose would act like a compass to guide us, our goals and action plans in life. It is definitely not advisable to climb a ladder and realized later that the ladder is leaning against the wrong wall. Our purpose will serve as our guide map as we walk this life.
One thing I learn from this chapter is learning to recognize the amount of joy we experience in an activity or task. The things that give us greatest joy are in alignment with our purpose. The joy we experience in a task or activity serves as our inner guidance system to determine if it’s connected to our purpose.
