I don’t have time to die is a pretty arrogant statement. But think about how awesome it would be to have that much purpose in our lives, and to truly believe that even a very full and long life is not enough time to get done all the good things that we want to get done. Imagine being so driven by what we do that we rush pass the Reaper every time that he glances our way.
My Granddaddy once told me that I would find true happiness once I found my purpose in life. That purpose in life gives us that sought after untapped hidden energy that gets us out of bed every morning and drives us to work late through the evening every night. When we find something that makes us want to do this early/late thing long-term we will finally have a chance at changing this world for the better.
There are a lot of people out there to positively influence through working wholeheartedly for the next hundred years. Hey, what can I say! This is the only way to change lives in the kind of numbers that we really want; and dying doesn’t fit into this equation on our timeline, no matter how old we are.
Come on… let’s just do it… Think about it for a moment… Moses did not know as a teen that he would lead the Jews out of slavery in Egypt and into the desert on the way to Canaan. He did not know that he was going to live to 120 years old and still not accomplish all that he was put on the planet to do. He also did not know the magnitude of the legacy that he would leave.
Now teens, go learn, lead, and lay the way to a better world for all of us. Remember to find your purpose in life and then become so busy achieving it that you don’t have time to die, or even slow down. And once again, thanks in advance for all that you do, and all that you will do…
