Earlier this year I was writing down on paper areas of my life of which I was passionate about.
What made my heart beat faster when I thought about it?
When I talked about it?
What was the purpose of my birth?
Being mindful of the moments in my life flying by I wanted to more clearly focus my direction for the coming years.
Once I narrowed down the list to three areas I began to visualize them.
I began to see how my life could, should and would intersect in all three.
I contacted my friend Brian Barnard, a very talent graphic designer and creator of visual images.
He told me the interlocking circles were called Borromean Rings.
He graphically designed for me three circles which interlocked in the center.
I printed out a copy and I wrote my name in the center where the circles came together.
I then wrote these three words in the outer rings.
Influence, Affluence and Benevolence.
It took me years to figure out why I was born and the purpose of my life.
And now it made perfect sense.
This is what I am.
This is who I am.
I am a dot connector, connecting these areas for good and to provide hope.
I am not exactly sure how this fits into a job description or how you get paid or how much, or if that even matters.
In any case, that is what I desire to do, that is what makes my heart beat faster
To be one who can confidently navigate within the world of the influential, the affluent and those in need.
I then jotted down this equation: Influence + Affluence = Benevolence
It added up and came out equal.
What are you?
Who are you?
