You can have purpose and avoid failure.
Purpose defines the WHY of you are doing what you do. With a clearly understood why, you will figure out how.
What does it mean to have purpose?
Purpose tells you why
When you know why are doing something, it helps you overcome the disappointment and frustrations that are a part of success. When you have the why, there is no failure that can stop you.
Purpose fuels your passion
It is your passion that gives you the enthusiasm to keep going when others stop. It is the obsession to obtain your goals that keeps you going down the same road where others simply stop.
Purpose is fulfilling
If your commitment is strong and your purpose is clear . . . achievement is sure. Fulfilling your purpose simultaneously fills you with the pride of accomplishment.
Remember what T. S. Eliot and Disraeli said about purpose:
The only failure a man ought to fear is failure in cleaving to the purpose he sees to be the best.
Nothing can resist the human will that will stake even its existence on its stated purpose.
