Man Without A Mission
Jun 4 2011

What is a man or woman without a mission?  Bored? Annoyed? Anxious? Lazy? Happy? Sad? Relieved?  Ecstatic? Depressed?  It probably depends on the person.  I think most of us…especially the entrepreneurial types…need/want a mission and something to believe in.  We want a calling of sorts whether it be parenthood, religion, work, volunteering, etc.  We want to make a difference.  We want something new to fix or figure out.  What happens when for some time nothing inspires you and you wander aimlessly in search of something and/or someone to believe in?  Someone to believe in you? It’s exhausting.

Some people just give up the search and settle for the mundane or just decide they are comfortable where they are and say to themselves ‘what more could I ask for?’  I sometimes envy those people because life might be easier.  But then again it is probably harder in many ways to pretend and be someone you are not.

    I’ve personally found you cannot rely upon outside influences to continuously inspire you…you have to create that from within.

    And wow, that sure can be tiring too……

    @Barbara Ling – Yes, that’s true…inspiration must eventually come from within and be maintained within. But I’ve found since humans are such social animals, it’s hard to be inspired within if you aren’t exposing yourself to potential sparks from others.
