Have you noticed how from industrialised nations to third world countries, the world has become an incubator of stress, frustration, depression and emptiness? We are failing today because of PURPOSELESSNESS; a situation where people fail to discover and live out Gods original purpose for their lives.
The value of life decreases and the quality of existence diminishes when a generation loses its sense of destiny and purpose.
Maybe these research findings will help to wake you up.
In a study in a U.S university, when sixty students were asked why they had attempted suicide, 85% said the reason why they had was that life seemed meaningless. More importantly, however, was that 93% percent of this student who suffered this lack of primary purpose were from socially active, achieving academically and on good terms with their families. (Richard Leider 2007).
This goes to mean that, the problem in this generation is not a means of living but a meaning to live for.
In another study in the U.K, it has been discovered that life is meaningless for three in ten young people. If this is true, then the future of our economies and nations are in serious trouble.
Recently, another research in the U.K suggests that only 30%-40% of people love what they do daily. This means that almost 60% or even more people do not love their jobs and this is a serious problem. If people do not love their job and only do it because of money or materialistic purposes, then what kind of nations or life are we building?
Note that I am not emphasising that money is not good. What I mean is there is something that comes before money; there are things money cannot buy.
The main problem is PURPOSELESSNESS. This is the kind of world you live in today whether you believe it or not. I want you to personally ask yourself sincerely this question;
- DO I LOVE WHAT I DO FOR A LIVING?
We need work and not Job. When what you do is work and not seen as a job, you do things in love before any other thing. This is why people need to locate their primary purpose as against secondary ones.
Based on various researches from Europe to America and the rest of the world, you will discover some of the reasons why this generation is failing. Some of the reasons for this rust out syndrome you will discover in this world today. I will list them for the purpose of this article but encourage readers to get hold of one of my books and get more information.
- Failure to connect with our Maker
- Change in worldview
- Faulty path reliance
- Focusing on weakness instead of strength
And much more.
To understand your purpose, one needs to also comprehend what purpose is not. What do I mean you may ask?
- Purpose is not your wishful thinking
- Purpose is not your six to six kind of job (death)
- Purpose is not manipulating people
- Purpose is not in your appointments
- Purpose is not your destiny
- Purpose is not looking for back doors when life becomes tough.
Why fail while still alive. As long as you are still breathing on this planet, you have a purpose ready to be discovered because you are missing in action until you do. To find more details to these points above, contact us or purchase a copy of the book “Alive for a Purpose.”
