Consider this thought-provoking question: What purpose is served by investing in extravagant items such as an expensive car, perhaps a Ferrari, without a specific destination in mind? Similarly, why would one acquire a pricey designer suit without a significant occasion to wear it to? Furthermore, what value is there in purchasing a luxurious yacht if there are no plans to explore the vast open seas? Just as these examples highlight the importance of purpose, the same principle applies to your education, certificates, and training—they become futile without a clear and defined mission statement.
The bottleneck that often hinders talent is purpose. Countless individuals possess remarkable abilities, yet their potential goes to waste due to a lack of clarity regarding their mission. It is not a matter of insufficient effort but rather the absence of a clear sense of direction. Many people believe that acquiring more certificates and skills will compensate for the real problem: blindness and lameness, but the reality quickly dawns on them that this is not a matter of how educated you are. Your talents, your education and training requires an objective. You need to develop a mission statement you can work with.
Investing time in refining one’s mission and determining the right path, while also recognizing what paths to avoid, is always a worthwhile endeavor. Such dedicated effort is never in vain and yields invaluable returns in the journey of personal growth and achievement. Driving a fast car is no use when the destination is unclear. The easiest way to fix this problem is to prayerfully copy the mission statement of anyone or organization that resonates with your heart. While studying others’ clear mission statements and thinking about them and their work. You will gain a better understanding of your own interests and clarify your mission.
