If you have ever looked at a stack of flattened cardboard boxes, you would realize that it's no more than a pile of pressed paper. Boxes are created with a purpose in mind. That purpose can only begin to be realized once the box is assembled and then used. That's why every photo marketing boxes for sale shows them assembled, describing what they can best be used for. Without being assembled and then being out there in circulation, without being used, the cardboard boxes remain in a pile of flattened paper product taking up space.
So many of us become obsessed with discovering our life's purpose but never get out there to be used. The road to finding your greater purpose in this crazy life, starts with getting yourself assembled, getting yourself out there and allowing your skills and talents to be utilized. No one can use what they can't find. Are you putting yourself out there? Are you risking failure and rejection?
If not, then you may be on hold for a long time waiting for someone to notice you lying under that pile of other like colored cardboard, hoping that someone will pick out your obvious uniqueness. Sounds dumb, doesn't it?
Get yourself out there! Start giving what you have and use what you've been given. Now there's a purpose! Someone in this world is in desperate need of a neatly packed box of you. It's not the first time you've been told to "get yourself out there", but it may be the last time anyone cares enough to remind you.
It's your life, but there is some assembly required.
