Benjamin Franklin once said, “Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from good ones”. His statement encourages us to explore net worth beyond the traditional formula of assets minus liabilities. In fact, the failure to explore net worth beyond standard accounting principles is a recipe that leads to the dehumanization of the soul. People are in dire need of meaningful excellence and the failure to heed the warning will continue to undermine the net worth of humans with bad habits born from Purpose Deficit Disorders™ (PDD).
Purpose Deficit Disorders™ are rarely mentioned in personal and spiritual growth circles. People are in the dark regarding the influence of PDD. As a result, they are confined to empty success secrets that fail to feed their appetite for purpose, and struggle to transform faith into an action-plan for purpose. Instead of impacting the world with a greater purpose, they settle for motivation and spiritual truths that fail to activate the potential of their Intelligent Design beyond moments of inspiration.
PDDs transcends race, creed, and religion. They are the driving force behind the meaning crisis in our country and manifest as flaws that tear the fabric of good character. If careful attention is not given to create awareness for the role of PDD in undermining human potential, it will become a silent assassin of net worth. However, through formal education in the sophistication of purpose, individuals are exposed to unknown assets that contribute to their net worth, and unknown liabilities that undermine their net worth.
When the sophistication of purpose is factored into the formula for personal growth, individuals can minimize the risk of PDD and eliminate the dark spots that erode good character. The unknown assets for net worth activate Purpose Skills™, which connects human existence and performance to a higher purpose. When Purpose Skills™ are an active force for playing the game of life, the influence of unknown liabilities will be brought to a minimum, and net worth will be sustained under any circumstance.
The Purpose Development Institute is the only organization in the world that challenge and equip individuals to increase their Purpose Skills™ for playing the game of life. It’s the go-to resource for systems and strategies to help individuals practice purpose like an art that can be mastered. Purpose Development has emerged as an industry that stands between the spectrum of personal and spiritual growth. It’s the key to helping individuals embrace their design potential to harvest the energy of purpose for impacting the world.
Purpose Development pushes the envelope for personal and spiritual growth by preventing individuals from becoming a liability in managing their purpose, discovering and releasing potential, and increasing their performance to play the game of life like a champion. It’s the key to using the dash between birth and death to formulate a plan to remain on the cutting-edge of design potential.
What’s Your Plan?
Most people have plans for starting a family, pursuing education, maintaining good physical health, career paths, retirement, spiritual growth, and prosperous relationships with friends. However, one of the most overlooked plans that support all plans, is a plan for harvesting the energy of purpose. Without it, Purpose Deficit Disorders™ will abound, which positions the character to become the biggest liability in life. Without a plan to play the game of life on the terms of purpose, you will increase the risk of not living on the cutting-edge of your design potential. Thus, robbing the people you know from benefits that could make their world better. Instead of being an asset to the world, you will portray tendencies that are a liability to your impact in the world.
Never forget that a liable character will create red flags that lead to
- A limited control over the value you bring to others
- An impaired use of your heart to manage the issues of life
- An increased risk in undermining other’s trust in who you are
On the other hand, when the sophistication of purpose is used to increase your net worth, you will unequivocally discover what it means to live from a position of strength by:
- Mastering skills to enable the intuitive side of purpose
- Gaining insight on how to use your Intelligent Design to harvest the energy of purpose
- Implementing a system that conditions your character for a greater purpose
Regardless how successful you may or may not be, there’s an Inner Champion™ inside you that stands between your good and bad habits. Without unlocking its potential, unknown liabilities will continue to erode your net worth. It’s imperative that you remember that the journey between birth and death was never meant to be void of assets that lead to a greater purpose. You have assets that will radically alter the way you play the game of life, and you must stop settling for average when it comes to meaningful excellence.
We live in a time where remaining average will lead to a below average net worth. Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook confirmed this thought in his commencement speech to the 2017 Harvard University graduating class. The Harvard Gazette quoted him saying,
To keep our society moving forward, we have a generational challenge — to not only create new jobs, but create a renewed sense of purpose.
He continued by saying, “When our parents graduated, purpose reliably came from your job, your church, your community. But today, technology and automation are eliminating many jobs. Membership in communities are declining. Many people feel disconnected and depressed, and are trying to fill a void.” He encouraged the graduates to find meaningful jobs and purpose in this new automated economy by saying, “Class of 2017, you are graduating into a world that needs purpose. It’s up to you to create it.” In short, purpose is a necessary commodity in the twenty first century, which is why we must master skills for unlocking our Inner Champion™, so we can rewrite the codes for building a new net worth.
