Purpose

Monday, November 16th, 2009

Purpose Inspirational Quotes may inspire us to value ourselves more.  We live in times when it is easy to forget purpose, and live more in survival.  Purpose however reminds us of our True Self.  Purpose serves as a beacon calling us towards the highest and best in ourselves.

Bruce Barton’s inspirational quote on our purpose, our calling, reminds us once again of the divine spark that ignites the divine design with each of us.  Trust that very soft calling.  Your purpose never leaves.  Your purpose never dies.  The sputtering of the flame is just our own inability to see it and hear it.

Take deep breaths, listen quietly, and trust that you will receive an answer.  Let the following inspirational quotes about purpose gently breathe inside you.  Answers and more questions will follow.

“The purpose of our life is to add value to the people of this generation and those that follow.”

-Buckminster Fuller

“When you have a sense of your own calling you have the means to overcome obstacles and work through menial takes with a sense of purpose. You may even find the obstacles themselves, and your reaction to them are another source of satisfaction in your life. Even better, your calling will naturally incorporate the people and things that are most important to you, so you can move beyond linking your sense of well-being to how happy your mother or your spouse is. There is an infinite source of gratification right in front of your face; you just have to reach out and grab it.”

-Addie Johnson

“It may or may not lead me to someone else’s definition of success, but following my passion elicits a sense of fulfillment that can never dull.”

-Addie Johnson

“You’re ready to find your calling, something that’s fulfilling now and grows into something just as fulfilling later. Your conscious mind could never predict what that calling is and what your future life will look like. It cannot map out every step that will get you there. If you tried, your map would be by a series of to-do’s, and no matter how much imagination you put into them, there would always be something missing. So ease up on the control pedal, and feel the exhilaration of the unknown.”

“If you have anything really valuable to contribute to the world, it will come through the expression of your own personality – that single spark of divinity that sets you off and makes you different from every other living creature.”

Bruce Barton (quoted by Joe Vitale)

“Until a man is old enough to loose the idea that the purpose of life is self-entertainment, until he quits trying to entertain himself and begins trying to entertain other people, he is bound to be restless and unhappy. You must forget yourself in order to please yourself.”

-Bruce Barton, On The Up and Up, 1929
