We are all born for a purpose. When you were conceived God said I need you here, born at this location, from these parents to live and learn with me and to develop these gifts so you can solve this problem. The thing is, the world will not help you to find what you were born to do. It will push you to try and get a high paying job to get the things you want. When we follow the world’s view to our lives, we may end up with money to buy everything we want, but it will not be satisfying and no matter what you do you will feel you are not successful enough. Which leaves you empty and always searching for more.
The only way to have a fulfilling future and to live the life you dream of is to find out who you are, what you are here to accomplish and how and where you are going to do it. Your time is now. Our creator gave us the who and the what and our passions and experiences tells us the where and the how.
Now we at The School of Influence want you to answer these questions now, because school and life will get you so busy you may forget and bury the dreams and passions you have for your life in the world. We had lived 20 to 50 years before we found these 12 questions. We were living normal lives being happy and having fun, but inside we were basically lost or searching for something, and knew there was more to life. We just didn’t know what it was until now. And now that we know, life has LIFE. We thought we were living before. Man! We are living now!
Let me give you a different approach. If you don't know your purpose... Emotions will guide your life. You will not be fulfilled. Small things will be big things and results could lead to more trouble in your life. Any boy or girl will do and when that doesn’t work out you’ll quit and move on, so painful. Following the crowd is your only option.
You have so much potential you can have the life you dream about and to be you no matter where you were born, what your family is like, how many friends you have, what choices you have or have not had made until now, or even what your grades or money situations are like. These question will start your path to your vision for your life. Answer them. Go ahead. We are here to help you. Unlock your potential. Start LIVING!
