9jaflave Soliloquy - Why Life Must Be Lived With Purpose

Last week the world woke up to the shocking news of the death Dr Myles Monroe and his wife, Ruth alongside 7 others in a fatal plane crash. I felt really sad and wondered why it had to happen this way. But on a second thought, I believe he had lived his life with purpose impacting thousands through his teachings, writings and leadership.

I personally got hooked with his writings after I read "The principles and power of Vision." in 2007. It was a borrowed copy but I was so inspired that I quickly bought mine which remains one of my most treasured books till date. In the 1st chapter he says, " While the poorest person in the world is a person without a dream, the most frustrated person in the world is the person with a dream but doesn't know how to bring it to pass". Life changing words indeed.

Most times we simply drift through life not knowing exactly what we ought to do, we sink deep in the sea of mediocrity and remain in our comfort zones. Why are we really here? What value does our presence add to humanity? Whose lives are we building? What will be our legacy? In moments like this, we have the opportunity to re-evaluate our lives and choose a new direction for our lives. Life must be lived with purpose, without which living means only existing. We must each find our life's purpose, for when we do, life will have a lot more meaning and several others may just find their voices through our own discovery.

I leave you with some of Dr Myles Monroe's words from his book. Hope you find purpose and inspiration for your life. Let us make our lives count. Cheers!!!!!!

The final season is death, where our lives become nourishment for other people's dreams in the next generation. 

If people can't receive life from the legacy you live when you die, then you really didn't live effectively. 

You should live so effectively that there won't be any need for a tombstone to mark your grave, because your life will be in the hearts and memories of those who could never forget you or what you did. 

Truly great people don't need monuments for we will always remember them.

We were born to do something in life that leaves nutrients for the seeds of the next generation to take root in and grow.
