At what age do you become a “grown-up”?

What does it mean to be a grown-up”?

Does it mean – no more school, no more studying, tests, homework?

I do a lot of reading in all kinds of areas or disciplines. It is my homework for growth. I’ve never wondered, “When does it all stop?”

I’m amused when I hear people in college state, “I can’t wait to get out of school and not have to study anymore.”

I don’t ever plan on stopping reading, learning, studying and growing.

Why is it that we come to a point in our lives when we think we don’t have any more growing to do?

The tense of the term "grown-up" implies that we have stopped growing. When you stop growing, it gets worse. You resist growth and change.

Children dream (daydream) They have an incredible ability to imagine the future. That’s the way God has wired us. The Bible says without a vision, people perish. (Proverbs 29:18)

Now grab hold of this. Without a vision, people perish; become stagnant… your life journey is severely limited.

I can’t believe the people who live without passion.

What would it take for you to have some "fire" in your life?

What would you do different if you were told that you were in the last stages of an illness and only had months to live?

What would be on your “Bucket List?”

When facing death your values change.

All of a sudden, people want to know God’s purpose. Business will wait. Life values change in the face of death.

Here’s the most important thing you can do with your life today. Don’t waste another moment. You need to articulate your life purpose.

We are so busy doing good things that we miss GOD things. Good is always the enemy of best.

By articulating your life purpose, you sharpen your focus.
