Passivity kills creation. It destroys the very core of who we were meant to be. Adam was passive in his calling out of Eve as she took a bite of the forbidden fruit. Instantly, perfect creation, innovation, and uniqueness dissipated. We became nothing more than normal and mortal.

Do you realize your purpose, whatever it may be, is meant to be 100% different from every single person the earth?

You see, our passivity invites monotonous behavior. It beckons in normality rather than a desire to vivaciously pursue the purpose for which we were made. Do you realize your purpose, whatever it may be, is meant to be 100% different from every single person the earth?

People live satisfied in normality because the dreams and passions they had weren’t good enough to be fought for. In other words, they passively observed and even squandered away any opportunity of fulfilling their purpose. This problem plaguing our generation is less about the presence of negative, self-deprecating action; it is simply the absence of action. The future is before each one of us waiting to be grasped.

It’s not too late. The beauty of our lives is the ability to choose. Fate is not chosen for us. We have the ability to fight, claw, and scratch our way to our dreams. We all stray away from and perhaps lose the direction of our path, but it is never too late to find the way again.
