Live On Purpose!
By Lana Moline
It is never too late to try something different or finish something that you may have started years ago. Life is a journey but on that journey is it so important to gain insight and tap into your purpose. You were built a certain way for a number of reasons and inside of that lies the great impact you will have on the rest of the world. It’s not enough to know how to do something or have an expertise in a field. That’s great when we do but the job then begins when we consider how to take what we know and purposely set out to do something with it.
It is time for all of us to have a CEO mentality. It doesn’t matter what field or industry you may work in, it is extremely important for each of us to remain innovative in our thinking of ways to create wealth. Let’s face it, we have seen severe lows in unemployment in the last few years and many people with years of experience and even advanced degrees were out of work which reminds us that no one is immune to being faced with unemployment when completely employed for someone other than yourself.
What I am suggesting is that each of us take inventory of the gifts and talents that we have, sit down and write a business plan and put yourself on the path to complete self-sufficiency in the creation of wealth. Separate, in your mind, your current job and your purposed career unless of course they are one in the same. So in other words keep your job at that book store or car dealership but everyday work towards creating something that is your own, something that you can pass on to your children. I will share with you that I work in Social Services and I have for a couple of years but God ordained me to be an encouragement to others. So I seek out opportunities to write and thrive on my job because in the workshops that I facilitate I make sure that I work my plan and sow a powerful seed of encouragement that I pray will take root. My job adds fuel to my dream. Do you see where I am going? I do!
Make sure you live on purpose. There is a genius inside of you and we are all in need of what you have share with us. Remember, there is nothing wrong with employee of the month. But, the CEO is the one who makes the rules. Go for it!

Wow, you hit the nail on the head with this article everything I needed to hear. As a women with a Master's degree facing unemployment, I am discouraged, however I keep pushing on. I am the CEO of my life! Thanks.
Hold on NaTasha! This too shall pass.
My recent post Are You A Rib?
Thank you for allowing God to use you as HE sees fit. Truly encouraging and motivating. I pray all readers consider the impact and importance of becoming CEO minded and driven. Continue doing what you do! Be Blessed!
Amen Sis. Kendra! Amen! God Bless!
I am truly a believer in this!! God gave EACH of us gifts and talents that we need to share. I believe if we do that, coupled with hard work, income will follow–chase your heart and the money will follow….is my thinking. I've been home for close to nine years raising my children and am giving my self two more to figure out WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO, and get it going!! This is so hard…in the mean time I'm reading my Bible and praying for direction….this article was encouraging..I wish God would just tell me what to do…
and God hears your prayers. I was home as well for 8 years with my children. That time is priceless and a journey. You are doing the best thing you can, which is seek answer in prayer. Your answers will come. Thank you for responding and God Bless!
