At Newbold, we believe in the power of Monday motivation.
‘Every man dies, but not every man really lives.’ If you’ve seen the classic blockbuster “Braveheart” then you may recognise this powerful quote. Living, meaning. These are two words we might not consider in our day-to-day life as we plough through our studies, work, or any other element of life. There is so much more to life that sheer ‘survival’, but how much do we consider that?
Here at Newbold, we have a wonderful learning community and we believe that part of the educational process, is personal discovery of one’s calling, meaning, and purpose in life. Those that may have found their purpose might feel that they have been reborn. However, there are many of us still searching for the answer, and it can be an unsettling time – and sometimes, it can take a while to get there.
There aren’t any shortcuts to get to this point, because even though it’s clear from the Bible that God has a plan for us, the discovery of our personal purpose is for us to find ourselves.
Don’t panic though, there are plenty of great resources that can help along the way, in many forms.
