Earlier this week, we posted on LinkedIn… an article on heroic character leadership and introducing an exploration of a process we call L.O.V.E.™. We invite you to have a read, first.
Now, and before we explore L.O.V.E.™ in the coming weeks, you can choose to take this video in … from AFTER SCHOOL on Facebook Live. It will take you 53 minutes and some change but it will spur some thoughts on Purposefulness and Responsibility, as strengths of character. Whether you do or do not, we invite you to consider Purposefulness as the path to happiness. The pursuit of happiness is not unlike chasing a greased pig. We may have moments but it so often alludes us. If we but choose to pursue Purposefulness, the “happy pig” shows up for us.
Purposefulness can be defined as unwavering firmness of character, action, or will… having absolute intention and commitment. Purposefulness drives heroic character leadership… that manifestation of leadership, at life and work, that is the practical application and practice of principles and ideals born of and lifted by virtues as strengths of character. Purposefulness is the foundation of grace and strength through trials and triumphs and it inspires others to find their own model of same.
If you watch the video (and we suggest you do) or not… what is your Purposefulness saying to you… at school, work, business or community? As Lawrence Pearsall Jacks wrote…
“A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.”
Therein lies purposefulness. How about for you? In the coming weeks we will explore L.O.V.E.™ as a path of Purposefulness, foundational for leadership at home, school, work, business and community.
Sure hope you join us.
Peace, passion and prosperity.
