There is nothing worse for a man than having no sense of purpose.
Ladies, you’ll be able to learn a few things too but this one is for the men.
Men find meaning in taming the untamable, conquering the unconquerable, defeating the undefeatable foe.
A man needs a purpose greater than himself for his life to have meaning.
For a man…
Success is knowing what you are doing and why you are getting up in the morning.
If you don’t know that, you don’t know who you are.
Men were created to take action.
If there is no meaningful action to take, there is no meaning.
Is there any wonder we have so many men wandering aimlessly through life, living with low-grade depression?
We see it manifest itself in everything from road rage to heavy drinking.
I’m sorry but earning a paycheck is not a life purpose.
Little boys want to grow up to be astronauts (leave a mark on the world), firefighters (save others), policemen (protect others), soldiers (protect their country).
Little boys know they were created for something beyond a cubicle and a paycheck.
Do you feel that emptiness in your soul? That constant aching that there is something more you were created for?
What are you working toward?
Or perhaps I can say it better: What are you living for?
What is the purpose, outside of yourself, that you are giving your life for?
Nobody had to tell the men who battled in WWII they were men. They had a purpose, they had a great enemy to overcome and they did.
There was no questioning their masculinity or their purpose.
They knew their value and they were celebrated for it.
What is your purpose?
Just because we no longer have a Nazi threat doesn’t mean there aren’t still huge problems in the world.
What gets you fired up whenever you hear about it?
What injustice offends you to your soul?
What are you doing to change it?

Meaning is found in purpose.
