purpose

A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on excellence, purpose, life skills, and making a difference

He should sweep streets so well that all the host of heaven and earth will pause to say, 'Here lives a great street-sweeper who did his job well'.

A Quote by Fred Kofman on business and purpose

…business doesn't have a purpose. it purposes a goal for those who accept to play by its rules. In business, a simple statement of the goal is "to make money today and in the future"–or more complicatedly, to maximize the value of the enterprise by maximizing the present value of its future cash flows. This is the point of the game. Each business organization (analogous to a sports team) tries to carry on operations such as invention, production, distribution, marketing and sales of goods and services at a (long-term) profit. There are some aspects of business that are like tennis; for instance, you compete against the producers of substitute products for market share. Some aspects are more like golf; for instance, you try to make the most (present-valued) money, regardless of who you are "playing" with. On the other hand, as opposed to tennis, golf or football, business is not a finite game. It doesn't have well defined spatial boundaries. The playing field of business is the world, (and potentially outer space); business is transacted anywhere and everywhere human beings live.

A Quote by Yvonne P. Morris on greatness, divinity, love, self esteem, self-acceptance, purpose, potential, and vision

I AM GOD's GREAT IDEA, AND I AM READY TO UNFOLD MY GREATNESS! I take this bold statement of Truth with me every day, and I allow it to become my reality.  I have dared to envision a preferable future.  I get excited just thinking that no matter what I want for myself, it is only a tiny glimpse of what God has in store for me.

A Quote by unknown on jesus, faith, commitment, love, life, sacrifice, disciple, popularity, praise, dreams, fellowship, meaning, purpose, death, healing, and eternal

"I'm a part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have Holy Spirit Power. The dye has been cast. I have stepped over the line the decision has been made. I am a disciple of His. I won't look back, let up, slow down, back away or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. I'm finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tame visions, worldly talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals. I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions, platitudes or popularity. I don't have to be right, first recognized, praised, regarded or rewarded. I now live by faith lean on His presence, walk by patience, am lifted up by prayer and labor by power. My face is set, my gate is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way rough, my companions few, my guide reliable, my mission clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I won't give up, shut up, let up until I've stayed up. I am disciple of Jesus. I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till all know, work till He stops me, and when He comes for His own, He'll have no problem recognizing me at all!"

It isn't about what I have, it's about where I'm going - it's about the people I'm trying to help get there.
