Tim Tebow shared his thoughts about living “a life that counts” as he talked about his new book “Mission Possible” and said there’s a “reason we all exist.”

The former NFL QB said the one of the reasons he decided to write the book is to “encourage people” and that it’s specifically not titled “Mission Impossible” for a reason, reported Fox News in a piece published Thursday.

“I believe that it is possible for every single one of us to have, to truly have, a life that counts,” Tebow explained. “God created each of us to have a unique, awesome purpose, and it’s why we’re here.”

“More than anything, I wanted this book to be encouraging to people, and for each of us to know that we have a mission — that there is purpose for your life, there is significance for your life, and it’s something you can accomplish,” he added. “It’s not something that’s impossible or a fairy tale — or something that’s only for a few. No, I believe that every single person on this earth has a purpose. There’s a reason we all exist. There are things we were meant to do.”

“So many times, the world is going to tell you to choose the things you want now — to go for the instant gratification,” Tebow continued. “And we don’t necessarily play the long game. But in the book, I share my thoughts about living for eternity, for things that are going to last forever. And so much of that is focused on people, and on how we treat others.”

The former pro baseball player said that he believes the most “full-filled” we will ever be in life is when we spend our time “focused on other people.”

“It’s about how we can love people, how we can make a difference for other people,” Tim shared. “I really believe in God’s economy, which is different than how we talk about our economy. In our economy, in order to have more, you take more. But in God’s economy — you give more.”

The former NFL star also said he wants people to “feel encouraged, to know how loved they are, to know how much their life really matters,” despite the things in life “that can get us down.”

“Especially for young people who get lonely or who may be feeling lonely today, I want them to know that you don’t have to spend your life comparing yourself to other people,” Tebow shared. “You don’t have to spend your life isolated, or feeling alone, or that nobody believes in you.”

“There is a God who believes in you,” he added. “You are loved so much — and I just want to encourage people that they were created to be who they are and that their life matters very, very much.”

In 2021, Tebow shared his mom’s pro-life story at the annual March For Life event. He talked about how she gave birth to him after doctors warned her against doing so and said she should get an abortion, as previously reported.

There were so many setbacks and heartaches, but the whole time she continued to trust God. Then it came time to give birth. The doctor, who had been doing it for over 35 years — and this was his specialty, helping women to give birth — and he helped deliver that baby. In over 35 years of doing it, he looked at her and said of all my years, this is the greatest miracle that I have ever seen because I have no idea how he survived: the placenta is not attached and there’s so many different issues, and I don’t know how he had the nourishment and the food to be able to survive. This is a miracle baby. Here is your baby, Mrs. Tebow. And that day, I got to meet my mom, and I’m so grateful that my mom gave me a chance at life, because many times could she have made the choice to do something different. But because of her pro-life story, I now get to share my story.
