You know, most people out there work pretty hard. I bet you do. I bet you work pretty hard. I bet you?re not the type to sit around and do nothing, to sleep in for no reason everyday, and to get by with the least possible and not get fired.

I think most of us actually do work pretty darn hard. Yea, yea, I KNOW right, there are some that do NOT work hard. They are lazy, slothful suckers that make everyone else?s jobs harder. I?m not talking about them, those kind of people are takers, users, and losers, frankly they totally suck, but, this post is not about them. It?s about you.

You; you the hard worker. The one that is really trying to get ahead in this world, you?re putting in the hours, you taking things seriously, and your honestly doing your best to try and rise above the crowd, to stand out, to make a difference.

Trouble is, as you?re looking back you?re trying to understand why it?s just not working. Why does all the hard work seem to have such low impact. Why are all my efforts not rewarded with the kind of ROI they really deserve?

Lack of Focus / Lack of Purpose.

Sure there can be other reasons, but I have found an overwhelming majority of the time, a simple lack of focus, or lack of purpose are preventing us from the life we want, preventing us from reaching the goals we set.

No one can answer it for you, no clever blog post or article is going to answer your questions for you. You are the only person that can help yourself, find your focus, find your purpose.

You need to do it, your life is moving along whether you?re ready or not? Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock. The clock doesn?t stop, doesn?t slow, doesn?t pause for a second while you bend over, raise your hand huffing and puffing and say ?hold up one second while I catch my breath.? It just KEEPS GOING, moving forward, marching on with our without your permission.

So please, PLEASE, take some time, find your calling, find your purpose, write it down, memorize it, pray about it, and get laser focused on it.

For yourself, and for the rest of us too, we need you.

We need you to do your thing, your way, in the way that only you can do.

Get to it baby.

Figure it out, and then MAKE IT COUNT.
