In his book, Perfectly Yourself; 9 Lessons for Enduring Happiness, author Matthew Kelly names mission as one of the keys to enduring happiness. "I don't know anybody who is experiencing enduring happiness who does not have some sense of mission in his or her life."
The words Kelly uses to describe the benefits for those who know and live their mission include
Unfortunately, we live in a time where few people know their mission. Fewer still live it. Kelly notes
"Seventy percent of American workers wish they had more meaningful work."
"Young people seem incredibly unable to even get their minds around the insanity of spending 86,400 hours doing something they are not passionate about."
"Many people in their teens and twenties, and even in their thirties, are disillusioned about their futures."
"They (teens and twenties) demonstrate little motivation or drive toward building their futures."
So if that mission is really as important as Kelly says, (I for one believe he's right)
Why don't we do whatever it takes to seek them?
Why don't our educational systems require them?
Why don't our churches instill them?
Why don't parents refuse to let their college age kids graduate without them?
OK, so let us be the generation who made mission central to our nation, to our education and to our spirituality. www.JeffCaliguire.com
