One of the proofs of progress in one’s life is by how well we have figured out our purpose – the major reason for our existence.
Purpose is relative to each individual’s assignment here on earth – What exactly is the reason you were born? Have you figured this out?
But then, before we move further,
What does Figuring it out mean?
According to the English advanced learner dictionary, to figure out simply means to discover; to find solutions to, and to deduce.
What have you been trying to get fixed? What have you been doing about it?
In this generation, people are lazy to discover things on their own. They want to get there very fast – immediately.
I remember the times where you have to go from one place to another to gather information – those times you have to move from one library to another in search of information even if you have to pay a huge amount to get it. That is when people actually figure things out the hard way but now that we have the internet on our fingertip, what then is the excuse?
It is not even bad to get a fast method to figure a thing out but when it becomes an excuse not to get it done, then it is the problem.
I will like to share an interesting story
While I was in secondary school. I had a mathematics teacher who would always ask us to figure out solution to mathematical problems given to us – he must have given us series of examples and explanations though.
I was among the average students.
I wasn’t good at mathematics. I hated calculations. So, I avoided it like a plague. However, I got a mathematics teacher who never left any of us lagging in his teaching. We were always told to be busy despite my hate for the subject. You can imagine the tons of hatred I had for him at that time. He was a thorn in my flesh
While at our work, he’ll ask “Have you figured it out!” and a varying chant of Yes/no would fill the air.
For those of us who couldn’t get it at the first attempt however got it at the second and third. I must also mention those who wouldn’t get it solved eventually until they gave up trying.
Now, let’s take this home.
What challenge has life thrown at you?
What riddle has life brought to your table?
I put it to you “Figure it out!”
“How do I figure it out?” you might want to ask
Just like the above illustration, Life gives us a formula to tackling every problem.
Yes, my dear!
It is important to note that some would never get life’s puzzle right at the first attempt except after a second to third attempt or even more while some get it right at the first attempt. The number of us who couldn’t get it right mixed out some steps. We never followed the instructions as given and until we could use the exact formula, we didn’t get it right!
What message is this passing across?
It simply means that we all have the potential of making a lemonade, when life throws us a lemon. It is however left to us to use the formula as instructed in order to achieve our goals.
Below are some formulas life has graciously given to us to “Figure it out”:
- Life has given everyone the ability to think, innovate, and recreate. Yes, we should set our brains to work aright.
- Life has given us models we can look up to, whenever we have an idea about a thing. There is always a person who has done similar things as your thinking.
- Life has given us time. Yes, we all have 24 hours to ourselves, what we choose to do with our time tells us apart from the rest. Do you invest your time in achieving a purpose? Be intentional with your time.
- if a solution works for others except you, try use creativity
Oooops! I almost forgot this.
- Life has given everyone the ability to choose whom we want to mingle with. Your choice of friends may hasten or retard your journey. The people you move with will either make or mar you. If what you desire is a strong relationship, then it is possible. You just have to work towards it.
Use these formulas wisely and get it all figured out!
The world is waiting for you.
