A Purposeless Life

by Natalie Mukuka
(Lusaka, Zambia)

I am typically a recovering under-achiever because at 27 I'm really just your average degree holder not making a difference in any one's life let alone my own, a really cluttered character. But that thought that keeps coming to mind is "as a man thinketh so is he."

It is so powerful and so deep, because when I look back at all the arguments, bitterness,emptiness, purposelessness - if such a word exists - and it all lay within me: the power to leave such thoughts behind and adopt positive thoughts, a positive life, a life full of energy and meaningfulness.

Now the next step is HOW? I'm studying the Bible and really trying to adopt a reading culture in my life that's how. The key word is proactive and not reactive. Is there someone out there who has negative vibes towards me? I just give them a double dose of love.

Am I constantly broke? I try not to look at clothes and am trying to put away a few coins every month (the opportunity cost of buying clothes is having a penny for a rainy day - I should know better I'm an economist!).

It's hard but I'm hoping to see the fruits of planting a good seed.The great article on 'sunk costs' really was my first read by Dr. Simuyemba, and I've been hooked on DREAMERS GUIDE ever since. I'm looking forward to changing, I no longer look back to amend what has already gone.

You are on the right track
by: Moses

Natalie, I wouldn't say you are an underachiever at all. The fact that you have recognized that you can live differently and that you do have a choice sets you above most people already.

You are on the right track. Your attitude is a winning attitude. Keep on doing the things you should do consistently and you will definitely get there. Thanks for sharing your personal story.
