I am sure you have met people like this. You take one look at them and you on they are on a mission. They are purposeful. They are not distracted. Obstacles do not worry them or deter them. Criticism is irrelevant to them. They know where they are going and they know, not just believe, they know they will get there. Uma Gupta writes that while many of us dream about leading a purposeful life, there are only a handful that know what they want out of life and go after it with passion. The great thing that adversity and setbacks bring to leaders is a refocus on their purpose; a re-commitment to their purpose. Uma Gupta writes that in spite of all the heartaches and frustrations that setbacks bring, they are also the source of the gift of renewal of one’s purpose in life.
