Motivational Quote - Here’s the test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: if you’re alive, it isn’t.

SparkPeople's Comments

That’s the great thing about being involved in something that’s bigger and more important than yourself – you’ll never run out of meaningful things to do! The unimportant stuff can be checked off or forgotten about once it’s done. A personal mission or purpose is so key to your being that it’s impossible to forget or put down for very long. What that purpose is can be different for each of us, and can change over time. Maybe it’s related to family, work, a cause or your community. If you don’t know what yours is, don’t believe for a minute that you don’t have one. Everyone does. To figure out what it is, the first step is to be honest – honest with yourself, honest with your loved ones and honest in an effort to match your life with your values. Your mission is already inside you. What would bring the most meaning to your life?

If your purpose is unclear to you right now, it may be you have not yet met the person you will greatly influence. Perhaps the event you will play a major role in has not happen yet. You have a purpose. Each and everyday you influence people and events. Your influence may be so small you don't even notice the effect you have. Maybe it was a smile to a person at the store or a donation to someone in need. You may never know how much your life has affected others. Just know that it has.

I often find a provoking thought will change my mindset and give it new momentum in a more positive direction.
where I am going is not necessarily where I started out to go; but then I've always been one to follow the sun as it peeks through the clouds.

I do agree, this is indeed a thought provoking quote. Sometimes I think our purpose, may be to bring meaning to someone else's life.

At times our missions might appear unknown to us. These times are no less important! Not every life we touch is visible to us.what appears minor to us might be the very foundation & support needed for something or someone amazing.
