Form your purpose by asking for counsel,
then carry it out using all the help you can get.
To gain understanding of your purpose, you will need to have good mentors and counselors.
When I first received the commission to build a movement to resurrect authentic manhood, I felt impressed to “focus upon men’s purposes, and they will cast off the things that constrain him.” When a man gains understanding of his purposes, his life becomes a passionate pursuit of authentic manhood.
During an interview today, I was asked, “If you could have breakfast or lunch with three people from history, excluding someone from the Bible, who would you choose?”
My answer surprised my interviewer—I responded, “I have done that through reading biographies and books that men have written. I can have breakfast with the great investor, Warren Buffett. I can have lunch with Bill Gates. I can have dinner with the late, Steve Jobs.”
Amazingly, I can do that for very little money. A few dollars, I can purchase their books. I can gain the highlight of their entire life experience with very little exchange on my part. I don’t have to know them personally to receive the best that they offer — that is their life lessons.
If you’re going to fulfill your purpose, you will need counsel.
Get all of the help that you can.
