You are a gift from above with unique talents that make you who you are.

You are a spark of the Godly consciousness responsible for the most beautiful, terrifying, breathtaking things in existence, and you have more power than you think.

Like the rest of humanity, you have a purpose on this planet. You’re on a mission, and the mission is yours to define. For guidance on what you should do, I suggest looking in your heart.

What are you passionate about? How can you make the most powerful impact on the world while doing something you love? Ask yourself this question and you could very well discover your purpose.


You are strong. This might be hard to believe in a society hellbent on making you feel powerless, but our society is hard to take seriously anyway. Don’t let the negativity of the masses bring you down.

You can handle adversity, but it won’t always be easy. Sometimes it’ll stretch you to your limit, but if you persevere, you’ll come out stronger each time. You’ll be thankful for what your struggles taught you, and you’ll start to look for the lesson in every experience.

Understanding you have potential can put you on the path to discovering your power.

You can do the impossible, but it takes hard work and perseverance. Through persistence and love for your work, you’ll find you can persevere through hard times and learn to appreciate the good times even more.

Ups and downs are a natural part of our life lessons that set the stage for invaluable learning experiences. If you’re receptive to each lesson, you’ll always find something to learn. Often, the good times will teach you gratitude and the bad times will teach you perseverance.


You evolve a little each day. That’s why these lessons are at your doorstep every day; to assist this ongoing evolution. As you evolve, you learn love, compassion, creativity, and reverence for your fellow man. This difficult process won’t happen overnight, but if you keep on, it will happen.

You’re evolving regardless of what you put into your evolution, but it helps to be conscious and attentive of the life lessons intended to help you progress.

Your evolution will be more meaningful if you consciously participate, and by connecting the dots between negative events in your life and the lessons you’re meant to learn, you’ll see that everything is connected.


You’re part of an intricate web of life. As you discover you’re one with the people and things around you, you’ll begin to see how the life lessons we all learn are similar yet unique. Then, you’ll gain empathy and the willingness to help those who struggle.

You’ll do so at the expense of leisure time, but you’ll be happy to sacrifice it if you can genuinely help people. Compassion will leap to the front of your mind, and the thought of helping others will inspire you.

You’ll be thrilled to spend time helping someone improve their life, and if you’ve been helped by others, you’ll remember how much you needed and appreciated it. This will fuel your compassionate service. This is unity; the willingness to put your wants aside to help others because you know you are one.


You can change the world simply by shifting into your heart. Love and inspiration arise naturally here, so there’s no need to force them. Trying to force them will yield no results. You need only shift naturally into this space in which love flows and creativity is boundless.

You’ll see that this space is essential for creative minds, as it’s the source of our passion for our work. I’m not sure why the heart is so notoriously difficult to access in any real or lasting way. But creativity has brought artists throughout history in touch with it.

You can use the heart’s power to make a meaningful change in the world. You can be all you want to be if you live openheartedly and push yourself to be a little better each day, but believing in yourself is imperative.


Have faith in what you can achieve, and know that following your passion is not naïve. Your passion is what you’re meant to do in life, but sadly, most never take the risk and pursue it.

Even if you don’t pursue your dreams, there are ways you can do what you love and help the world in the process. Dabbling in your passions in your spare time is a fulfilling way to express yourself and potentially help the world.

Spending at least a little time doing what you love will make a remarkable impact, even if it’s only on you.

Trust yourself and have faith in your abilities, because you can contribute to a revolution of consciousness slowly spreading throughout the world. You are infinite, but you must break through the mental barriers in your way before you can see it.

Become what you’re meant to be and fulfill your destiny. The world needs you.
