I’ve finally had to admit defeat.
Until some time last year, I did not want to know about blogging or social networks. I felt I could get along in life quite well thank you very much without the need to join online communities looking for virtual friends.
Don’t get me wrong – I am not against progress and I am not opposed to change (at least no more so than the average person). I just didn’t feel it was necessary. So whilst I belligerently buried my head in the sand, technological advances continued to swagger its own sweet way forward and left me completely behind!
Now, having peered through the dim fog of my foolish obstinacy, I see the light! And so I‘ve decided to venture into unknown territory, to dip my toes in the blogging ocean and learn to negotiate its currents. This time I’m choosing to swim with the tides of change, instead of against!
My name is Carol. Thanks for doing me the honour of paying a visit. I hope you like what you see and enjoy what you read. Do get involved. As you engage with me and other users, I trust you’ll leave encouraged, inspired and motivated. So don’t be a stranger – come back often.
ABOUT THIS SITE:
Are you familiar with Rick Warren’s book: The Purpose Driven Life? It’s been described as “a blueprint for Christian living in the 21st century”.
In chapter 3 of this work, Warren highlights several negative reasons that can be a driving force behind people’s lives. Having recognised some of those reasons featured in my own life, I decided that as a woman of God, I don’t want to be driven by fear, or a desire for approval, or some other unworthy reason. I decided if I am going to be driven by anything, then let it by God’s pre-ordained purpose for me. Hence the title of this site: A Purpose-Driven Achiever.
Now whilst I seek to motivate myself to move from an unproductive existence to a fruitful, purpose-driven life and, whilst I desire success and significance as pre-destined for me by my Father God, I am mindful of that verse of scripture in Philippians 2:4: Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. My heartfelt desire therefore, is to encourage others to come along with me on this journey. Are you ready? Then let’s go!
