Definite Purpose
by Joe Bonura , CSP

Record Breaker

A few weeks ago, I watched Peyton Manning tie and break Brett Favre's record for the most touchdown passes in the National Football League. Three years ago, it was doubtful that Manning would ever play again. It was only through courage, tenacity, and definite purpose that Peyton was able to accomplish such an awesome feat.

From Surgery To Success

Peyton had surgery on a neck injury that he sustained, and his NFL future was touch and go. Thanks to his burning desire and love for the game, after being released by the Indianapolis Colts, Denver Bronco fans saw Peyton take the Broncos to the Super Bowl last year. While they did not win, just getting there was a major accomplishment. Before extensive rehab, he was barely able to throw the football, and yet today, he is back to the Peyton that football fans all know and love.

Super Bowl Here He Comes

Peyton's love for the game and his leadership skills just might take Denver back to the Super Bowl this year. Not only does he inspire himself, but he also inspires those around him to be the best that they can be. His passion is contagious and he is now on his way to breaking Drew Brees' record for throwing a touchdown in the most consecutive games.

Your Inner Guidance System

Definite purpose and defining your goals can make all of the difference. It is like having an inner guidance system set to take you wherever you want to go, but you must program your guidance system with the needed information and passion.

Hip, Hip Hoorah!

My brother-in-law, Ty Yokum, works in the headquarters of Chick-fil-A in Atlanta. He had a hip replacement recently, and he resolved that he would be walking without aid three weeks after surgery. He walked without aid in 1 ½ weeks, and he was back to work and driving in two weeks. Ty had a definite purpose for getting out of bed and back to work.

A Wandering Generality

What is your definite purpose in life? Sales pro and speaker Zig Ziglar once asked, "Are you a wandering generality?" Wandering generalities simply drift through life waiting for the grim reaper, and when he arrives, they whimper and whine that life passed them by. Their last words are: "If only I had…!"

Today Is the Day

Today is the day that you can turn your "If only I had…" into: "Look at all that I have accomplished!" It takes just a moment to plan your future. Think about what you really want in life. Determine to get out of the rut you are in. A rut is nothing more that a grave with both ends cut out.

Do It Now

Do it now, and you will reap the benefits of a definite purpose in life for the rest of your life.
