Never let another person dictate the terms for living your life.
Good reminders here!
I too can rephrase the same common sense to suit my blog.
I don't normally post self improvement sites, but this one has some very good yet simple points that everybody would do well to remember.
From the page: "Rule Seven: Purpose comes from your creative faculties.
Want to know what your purpose in life is? Simple. Hold your hands in front of you. Now look at them. There is your purpose and means to do it.
Purpose is your ability to take the creative energies you have and communicating them with the world. You and I might pick different mediums, but the act of purpose is exactly the same. You could be a manager crafting the art of dealing with people, a programmer crafting the knowledge of algorithms or an entrepreneur crafting the art of a business.
Don窶t worry if you haven窶t found the right medium. Once you feel that great purpose for your life and it comes from within, that is your greatest asset. With that belief you are the leader of your own life."
Not a bad site.
From the page: "Are you writing the story of your life, or are you letting other people and circumstances write it for you?"
