Definiteness of Purpose is a phrase made popular by Napoleon Hill in his books including his most popular one Think and Grow Rich. I have recently been focused on this because I am reading a fantastic book by Hill that was withheld from publication for 70 years. The name of that book is “Outwitting The Devil” I highly recommend all of Napoleon Hill’s books and Outwitting The Devil is certainly included.
What Does Definiteness of Purpose Mean?
Let’s start with definiteness. One definition I really like is “the quality of being predictable with great confidence” Dictionary.com defines definiteness as exact, precise. So for me definiteness of purpose means an exact statement of your purpose or a precise statement of your purpose, or you are confident in your statement of your purpose. Do your own work on this so you are clear as to what definiteness of purpose means for you.
What Is Your Definiteness of Purpose?
I have written mine and refer to it often. It is close to me where I do my self development work. I never had written this clearly until earlier this year. Once I did things began to move forward more quickly for me. It took me a lot of reflection before I was able to write it. I kept asking myself if I had all the money I could possible want how would I spend my time? That is a good place to start if your definiteness of purpose is not clear to you.
Definiteness of Purpose Is The Guide To Prioritizing You Daily, Weekly Monthly Intentions
This week I have purpose be spending time first thing in the morning being clear as to the outcome I am intending to experience today. Those intentions for the day are linked to my definiteness of purpose. Now I go about my day taking action. While I am following what I think I should be doing – calls, meetings, marketing, I have noticed especially this week what seemingly are disconnected events. But they are not. These events, calls and emails mostly are totally linked to my intentions and purpose. The difference is they were not planned by me. The other thing that happens with clear intentions is I get new ideas. Ideas are messages from God and especially so when those ideas are in sync with my intentions. Ideas can come in many forms. Neale Donald Walsch writes in Conversation With God they may be in something you read, hear, on a billbord or some other media. You will know the difference between an ideal you are to pay attention to and information or data noise.
