Ripples #572: On Purpose!
Monday, May 10, 2010
The Ripples Project is a tribe of 25,309
who believe tiny actions create big possibilities
Find a purpose in life so big it will
challenge every capacity to be at your best.
-David O. McKay, submitted by Linn W., Milwaukee WI
Keep on beginning and failing.
Each time you fail, start all over again,
and you will grow stronger until
you have accomplished a purpose;
not the one you began with perhaps,
but one you’ll be glad to remember.
-Anne Sullivan, submitted by Terry H., Oak Creek WI
Several hundred Ripplers will graduate from high school or college in the
coming weeks (including my niece—you go, Jamie, YOU GO!) and while some of
the have determined their next steps, others are pondering, “What’s next?”
Defining a purpose for your life provides a direction for your journey, and
that direction is useful even though you may eventually alter the course.
Whether we’ll be wearing a cap and gown or not, perhaps we can all pause
and reflect on our dreams and ambitions to ensure our actions are helping us
to live a life ON PURPOSE!
