Purpose driven vs. Self driven
To be purpose driven is to not focus on self. If I become too wrapped up in myself, it's like putting on one of those 'cones of shame' dogs get from the veterinarian. My view gets skewed and distorted, I become unclear of my message and vision, and my executive function goes completely out the window.
However, when I focus on purpose, everything shifts. I no longer embody the tendency of, "what will they think?" because the overwhelming census is, 'what do I get to do NEXT?"
