“Purpose is the essential element of you.” — Chadwick Boseman (1976 – 2020)
Full Quote: “Purpose is an essential element of you. It is the reason you are on the planet at this particular time in history. Your very existence is wrapped up in the things you are here to fulfill. Whatever you choose for a career path, remember, the struggles along the way are only meant to shape you for your purpose.”
It’s Better to Prepare than to Repair ~ John Maxwell
