Why Do You Exist?
This question is often left unanswered, as its meaning can be interpreted in about a thousand ways, yet none as conclusive as we would like. The reason for someone’s existence can be linked to faith, belief, circumstance, and nothing more than destiny.
So, why do we exist and why are we all so different from one another? What makes some of us more capable than others? Why do some of us excel at something while others are so much better in other ways? All of these are valid and powerful questions, but none are as relevant as why we exist. We must all play a role in a bigger picture, but what? Is God testing you? Or perhaps faith has you left with the belief that procreation is the ultimate way to leave a legacy behind and create a sense of purpose for yourself.
Opportunities lie all around us, from the lifetime opportunities we encounter everyday by meeting new people and learning from them, to new directions we can take our lives. These opportunities appear in front of us each and every minute that we exist, and in most cases we miss most of them because we are not looking for them, and most likely dismiss them.
The easiest way to put this in perspective is to think of an occasion when you wanted something, such as a certain brand of car, for example. As a result of wanting it, your focus alerts your senses to identify it each and every time you see it, giving you that feeling that you can now identify with it more than you did before. The same goes for other things like the latest electronics or designer clothes. Opportunities are also included in that mix, but the difference is you actually have to know what specific opportunities you are looking for. In most cases, you haven’t yet defined those targets. How can you aim for something when you don’t know what or where it is?
Awareness has a lot to do with seeing the right opportunities. Seizing that opportunity is the other half of the equation. Grabbing hold relies heavily on your understanding of the opportunity, but you also have to be ready to take action when you encounter it. Readiness can also be tricky when you aren’t clear about what you are seeking. If you can’t connect with a golden opportunity when it arises, you might miss your chance. You can blame it on lack of faith or some other factor, but perhaps you should look more closely. Was it really faith or your lack of faith in yourself that let the opportunity pass you by?
At every turning point of your life, you discover life’s objectives. Your discoveries are based on how much you see, which is tied to how much previous information you received. This either makes it an opportunity or just entertainment. Purpose can be identified only when you:
• See correctly
• Hold enough information; and
• Have the confidence to act on discovering more As a result, you will feel purposeful—even if you have yet to discover your life’s purpose. At different stages of your life, you might feel like you hold multiple purposes as you identify your objectives.
The Third Circle Theory
The Third Circle Theory consists of three circles illustrating three worlds, three perspectives, three visions, and three cycles. Each circle consists of:
• A world
• A perspective
• A vision, and
• A cycle
Your mind undergoes each of these four elements. Each circle represents a path you can take. Through time, you can evolve from one to the next. You do not have to complete a circle in order to graduate to the next circle. Everyone goes through the First Circle, some will evolve to the Second Circle, and very few progress to the Third Circle, which is the stage that allows the definition of your existence.
The first circle: The birth, the settler & the dreamer
The second circle: The awakening, the leader & the achiever
The third circle: The vision, the purpose & the rebirth
