Most people have a job. It is volatile. It is a means to an end. Their future is in the hands of others. At some point, if you make it, you will leave your job.
Some people have a career – a consistent job. It too is a means to an end. The future is also in the hands of others. As with a job, at some point, you will elect to leave you career.
A select few have a mission. Of course, it is neither a job nor a career. It is the means and the end. No one can ever take your mission away. And the right mission – one that speaks to your life’s purpose – is one you will never want to let go.
