Finding A Purpose

As a 20 year-old college student I was going through the basic motions as everyone else. I had good grades in high school and was accepted into college and went, thinking that it would be able to give me all of the things I wanted and wanted to be in life. However, at the end of my sophomore year I was feeling like something was missing and that I was lacking some sort of drive and purpose for what I was really doing with my life. I didn't want to admit it to myself but for once in my life I was scared and unsure of what my future looked like. I didn't want to live through the same struggle and the 'rinse, wash, repeat' that everyone else seemed to be doing, it wasn't for me and I never knew how to break away from that cycle.

One day this past summer I received a phone call from a very close friend from college who offered me the opportunity of a life time. If there was any way humanly possible to ever repay him or to show how grateful I am I would. He introduced me to a network marketing company called Vemma. I fell in love with the concept, the company, and every aspect of it right away. For once I found something that I could be passionate about and that I could change other people's lives just like my friends helped to change mine.

The culture of this company is incredible. Never before have young people been able to come together to help each other succeed, become better people, and have fun in the process. So many on the outside don't truly understand what we do and certain aspects of Vemma, but I strive to inspire other people and to educate them about what reallly goes on. This is far far beyond a healthy energy drink.

Through Vemma and all of my other experiences I've found my purpose for why I wake up every day and what my passion is. I aspire to inspire others. If I can help someone in any way, shape, or form, no matter how big or small of a difference I can make, then I have accomplished what I wanted to. Even if it is as small as saying hello or making someone smile. Being able to help others that cannot offer you anything in return has a certain 'good feeling' that I get and it's almost become addicting. Now I search for ways to help make someone's day a little bit better.

I've also learned to create a vision of what I want my life to look like in the future. I have the vision, I know where I'm going and how I am going to do it. Life is a journey not a destination so I'm making the most out of this journey.
