When you live cause-driven, you'll do things you wouldn't normally do: you'll get up early, you'll make sacrifices, you'll show up when you had other things to do — you're committed to the cause. You don't wake up in the morning thinking, "I don't feel like going to work. I don't want to deal with these problems". Your attitude is, "I'm on a mission. I have an assignment. It's not just about me, somebody needs what I have, somebody's counting on me — I'm going to be a positive force for good in my neighborhood, in my family, on my job".
The reason many people are not happy is they're ingrown. As long as you're only focused on you, you're not going to be fulfilled. Look around at how you can be a blessing. When you give your time, energy and resources to care for the hurting, to lift those that are disadvantaged, to bring their dreams to pass, you will see favor in new ways. Are you waiting for God to bless you when God is waiting for you to be a blessing? The next level of your destiny is connected to helping someone else!
