Our effectiveness in life is premise on the right understanding of what our true assignment is in life. Your assignment defines your area of influence in life. Failure to get this right is functioning out of your place. When this happens, you are signing in for disappointments and frustrations. We shall be looking at key areas that enhance effectiveness in our life. Identify your purpose in life; your area of influence. What were you born to solve in life? When your purpose is known it prevents abuse from setting in. Dr Myles Munroe says that when the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable. The number one priority to effective living is knowing the essence of your existence.
There are lots of people living for survival, enduring life and not purposefully. These categories of people live far below their potentials and they end up never utilizing nor maximizing their God-given gifts, talents and endowment. What a shame, what a waste! It’s been said that the richest place on earth is not the diamond fields of South Africa, but the cemetery. This is because in the cemetery is a place where you find ideas that never became reality, dreams that never left the realm of dreams, inventions that were never invented, stars that never shone. It is where the greatest writers, poets, scientists, medical doctors, that never became who God created them to be are buried, never to be given a second chance in life. Imagine such colossal waste, imagine the impact the world would have experienced if these people had lived on purpose. Please don’t join the statistics.
When you zero into your purpose, it concentrate your resources – physical, financial, spiritual, into achieving that great feat that will alter the course of destiny for good. In the absence of this, you are open to a lot of distractions which dissipates your energy, waste your resources and ultimately lead to a negative impact to the society.
Understanding your purpose places a responsibility on you to document the details of your assignment and sticking to the “how” of realizing it. It’s been said that anybody with a vision or purpose in life has a responsibility of documentation. Write the vision down and position it where you will be seeing it every day. There is the story of Florence Chadwick who wanted to swim from Catalina Island to the mainland of California. After swimming for 15hours, dead tire and cold to the bones, she insisted that she should be taken out of the water. On being pulled up, she realized that the finishing point was just half a mile away, less than 1 hour swimming. She later confessed that if she had seen the distance that was left, she would have been able to make it no matter how tired she was. Realizing your purpose requires that you keep the big picture in view where you will see it every day. This will spur you on, no matter what you face in life.
