Are You Living Your Life on Purpose?

That can be a scary question, especially if you think you might not be.

But it’s gotta be asked occasionally, and my dear friend B.W. Richardson asked it on his blog this past week.

Lemme share Brian with you for just a minute:

“In the first song of his valedictory album Brainwashed, George Harrison caught me up short with a line I’ve since come to realize is an old one, but it was the first time I’d heard it.

If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there.

“All of the self-help books I’ve ever encountered seem to come down to a few basic truths, and that’s one of them. Expressed more positively, it’s simply: Know where you want to be, set a goal to get there, and act on the goal. …

“We all face doubt and fear on a daily basis, and manipulative men and women encourage us to be afraid so that we will buy into their self-serving solutions. Refuse to be afraid — that is, refuse to let doubt and fear control you — and you’re on the road to freedom.”

You’ll find Brian’s original post, and lotsa other terrific, inspirational stuff, right  here. It’s always worth reading Brian in all his fullness and goodness.
