A story is told about three people who were laying bricks. A passerby asked them what they were doing. The first one replied, “Don’t you see I am making a living?” The second one said, “Don’t you see I am laying bricks?” The third one said, “I am building a beautiful monument.” Here were three people doing the same thing who had different perspectives on what they were doing. They had three different attitudes about their work and this will definitely affect their performance. The distinguish factor is that they have their own definition of work. To be relevant, your definition must match with the real definition of work.
When you know you are not just in your workplace to either make a living or perform your normal duties, but to build lives and businesses, your approach towards what you do there may not change. This is the distinguishing factor between people. You are not just a number in your family, there is a mission you are called to accomplish. It may be that you are the one to break the limit of stronghold that have limited them for long. You may be the one to spark up the fire of relevance and recognition through the things you will do. You may neither attain nor achieve this if you don’t know your mission.
The only way you can be a plus factor in life is to know the problem you are created to correct. Many unknown people can find their way into a place and within months of active service they climb the ladder of recognition not because they are superhuman, but for the singular fact that they know why they are there. The only way you can count in life is for your life to count for something. This is the time to have a real reason for aiming high and shooting for the moon. Don’t just work to earn work to create a lasting legacy. Become a silencer! God bless you
Enjoy your day
