Discover your purpose session titled “POWER OF PURPOSE” took place on Saturday in Mamelodi West, Pretoria with a local radio presenter Daisy Diamond Tlailana, Kakgiso Monyemonwa with an assistant from Kutlwano Zimu.
“It was a educative session where we were talking about purpose, how to align your passion with purpose and how to orchestrate ways of living a purpose driven life”, said Daisy Tlailana.
Young people from the community including local speakers, Howard Zondo (Author of Young Black and Powerful book), Edmond Masemola, and Nkosinathi gathered for the discussion and concluded that purpose it is within each and everyone one of them, everyone who attended seemed to have their own desires and had own definitions of purpose. Everyone needed to leave a mark in their lives for future purposes.
During her speech Daisy said, “Purpose is unique to each one of us, we can only learn from each other but can’t adopt the purposes of others, we must all discover our own”.
The youth gave a positive feedback to the session and said they learned something new that is going to propel them as a way forward, some even managed to discover their purpose that day after a short introspection was done as part of the day activity.The youth gave a positive feedback to the session and said they learned something new that is going to propel them as a way forward, some even managed to discover their purpose that day after a short introspection was done as part of the day activity.
“I’m glad young people were participating and were very interested and I feel that such events are very relevant to us as young people and I’m glad we are making progress as the youth of Mamelodi and finally drifting away from all the negativity around our region”, said Kgakgiso Monyemonwa.
Daisy said she has realised many young people are busy doing something with their lives, yet half of the work they do is not aligned with their purpose, such events are a wake up call to people who are not living to their fullest potential. She urged that events of this nature should be done to help others discover their purpose.
