We need to be aligned to what our purpose is. The alignment between your actions toward your core values produces satisfaction, a sense of happiness, and fulfillment. Therefore, your alignment is more important than your assignment. We can then pull our assignments in and make sure that they make sense.
Alignment is defined as an arrangement in a straight line or incorrect or appropriate relative positions. Like a car, you know it when the wheels are not aligned. Although, it will still run it pulls to the left or right. Life is like that when you are not aligned with your goal.
Take time to recognize your actions and evaluate if they really are in accordance with your goals and values. A misalignment can cause everything from minor problems to major disruptions. Be aware of your alignment and keep moving forward towards your goal.
