When I heard Joyce Meyer say “Live on Purpose“, it really hit me. Many people are really living on accident. They live a mediocre life, hoping their heart keeps beating, and they keep their job, wife, kids, car, house, etc. by just continuing to show up and go through the barely adequate motions necessary to remain.
By choosing to do the minimum, or even the average (what everyone else does), is living in mediocrity – and no one does great things with mediocre effort. The problem is, most people don’t really feel that bad about it because they are comparing themselves to everyone else living the same way. Mediocrity IS the average – unfortunately, it’s the norm. But don’t you want to be EXCELLENT? Don’t you want to make the most out of your life?
“All good is hard. All evil is easy. Dying, losing, cheating, and mediocrity is easy. Stay away from easy.” Scott Alexander
Sure, we eat, but do we eat to LIVE – and live well? Do we eat to perform, to heal, to grow, to prevent sickness? Do we eat to have enough fuel to have the energy needed to be sharp at work, or play with our kids? Do we exercise to improve, to get stronger, to reshape our body, and to mold it into the healthiest form we possibly can to make the absolute best out of life? Do we live on purpose by choosing what is right – to do and say the right things, and live to a higher standard than is natural and comfortable? Or do we just “punch the clock” and go through the motions just to check it off our list so we can feel a little better about our mediocre effort?
Listen up peeps! We are missing out if we don’t live life with purpose. If you have been going to the gym, and doing the same routine forever, you are stuck in a mediocre fitness routine – and that’s NOT training with purpose. If you choose food by taste, without considering the fact that food is your fuel source, you are NOT eating with purpose. Make a decision to make a change. Eat, train, live – with purpose.
