Your Purpose – The Foundation

Everyone of us has a purpose for being here in this world.  There’s not a single person that just landed on earth from no where without a purpose.  We all have a reason why we were born.

What is your purpose here on earth?  Do you know?

There is a purpose for everything we say and do, everywhere we go, the people we meet… EVERYTHING!

“So what does this have to do with creating successful professionals and businesses?”  I’m glad you asked.

Organisations are set up to render a service (or a group of services) or offer a product (or a group of products).  And these services or products are created to meet a certain need.  Either of an individual, a group of people, a city, a nation, another organisation etc.  This means that every single product or service offered exists for a reason.  Which brings us to the meaning of purpose. defines purpose as the reason for which something exists or is done, made, used, etc.  Some synonyms of purpose are mission, ambition, desire, destination, goal and reason.

I know, I know – this information is very basic.  Exactly! I want to establish the basics.  I hope I’m getting it right.  What do you think so far?

Anyway, so why did I start with the purpose of an individual?  Because, the purpose of the individual determines which organisation he/she works in, what kind of business he/she creates or engages in and of course, the customers he/she attracts. Oh and one more very important thing, the people – those he/she works for and with.

An individual’s purpose is a force that determines his/her character.  “How?” you may ask.  I’ll spill that out in part 1.  And by the way, all this is original.  Oh, did I hear you say “girl, you’re good!”  Thank you very much! 😉

Ok, back to subject. again defines Personality as the visible aspect of one’s character as it impresses others.  An embodiment of a collection of qualities.  The essential character of a person.  One’s personal identity.  Some synonyms of Personality are identity, individuality, self, disposition and temperament.

“So memeh, what is the connection between purpose and personality here, I don’t get it?” Well maybe you do 😉  Still, I’m glad you asked, so here it is.

Everyone of us is born to serve and influence our world with our personality.  There is a reason why we were born to the family we were born to.  There is a reason why we were born in the city, state, nation we were born in.  There is a reason why we were born male or female.  There is a reason why we exist.  That is, there is a purpose why we were born.  Our purpose can be divided into 2:

  1. Our general purpose – which is to serve and influence the world for good with our personality
  2. Our specific purpose – which is the specific people we are created to serve and influence for good with our personality.  This is the reason why we are the way we are.

We’ll look at this in detail in later posts.

Have you ever wondered why people get frustrated working in particular organisations or doing some certain kind of business? And you might probably think they are so blessed working in that organisation or doing that business.  But they don’t feel blessed.  There’s no fulfillment.  Well, that’s because there is a mismatch.  Their personality is suffering there.  Instead of serving and influencing there, causing their organisation or business and those they work with to excel, they are trying to fit that round peg personality into a square hole purpose.

But memeh, are you saying everyone who is not happy at their job have a mismatch?  Are you saying that is not the place they should be?” Great you asked, I’ll tell you what I believe.

Not exactly.  For some people, yes it is a mismatch.  However, for some they are just having a hard time developing their personality.  This is done by impoving their character and developing their potentials.  I’ll write more on this in later posts. “oh enough of this later posts, tell me now!”  Patience, dear Reader, patience.

I’ve got a question for you.  What is your influence like?

Is your personality pitiful or powerful? – I got the ‘pitiful or powerful’ part from Joyce Meyer.

Would you want to be influenced by you… the way you are?  Think about it.

If not, you’re either not living your purpose, or you need to stop complaining or trying to run away from developing the required character to accept the place you are in, so that your personality can shine out and you can influence and serve those where you are right now with the quality of your personality.

So what do you think?


About time!

Did you ever have a lot in you to say to the world and you didn’t know how to go about getting started?

Well, I have a lot to say.  I have learnt a lot – still learning.  And I have experienced a lot – still in that process as well.

I found out, well not too recently, that a starting point is to start a blog.  So, here I am – finally!

I love writing.  I can tell a lot of stories and I do public speaking too.  So why haven’t I been writing?  I have said over and over to my family, friends, colleagues and business associates “I am going to start writing now” or “You’ll see my writings soon.”  Must sound like a broken record to some because I never seemed to start.  Well, not anymore!

As I write this post, I feel like just going on and writing.  It is almost like I found me.  I really wonder, why I haven’t been writing?  Ok, I think its getting boring! Enough of the “whys.”

On second thoughts, this post is titled “About time!” so I am allowed to repeat and repeat “Why haven’t I been writing?” or phrases that imply.

Ok, you might just be wondering “writing about what?”

There are a number of topics that interest me and that I really have a lot of interesting and educative things to say concerning, but for this blog, I will focus on creating successful professionals and businesses.  I’ll write more on this in another post but for now, I’ll just enjoy taking this first bold step out of the water and enjoy the fresh air of writing my passion.

I believe we all have an audience, we all have something inside of us to give to our world.  I know not everyone will do it in writing but there are some of us that in giving our service to our world, we have been given the gift of writing.

I might not be the best writer, I might not use all the right words or phrases.  I might not use the right structure but I do know this, I have something to say and there’s someone out there that will be my reader.

I encourage you not to wait any longer if you feel the need to write.  Just go ahead and act now!  You get better as you put in more and more practice but just go ahead and get writing or doing whatever it is you feel and have felt the need to all this while.  There’s someone waiting for you.  There’s someone who’s your audience.

Its about time!
