Help me translate some Spanish (Spain) to English, and understand the significance of what it says.

I was recently involved in a short romantic fling with a girl from Spain. Before we parted ways she left me with a card with the following inscribed:
Todo el mundo tiene
un proposito en la vida,
un don unico o
a los demas...
si no lo tiene no te servira de nada!
Cada camino es solo un camino
Observa cada minuto con atencion,
Recorrelo tantas veces como
Despues preguntate: "?este camino tiene corazon?"
Si lo tiene, es buen camino.
Unfortunately my spanish isn't all that great and even though i was able to translate the passages in google translate I'm pretty sure that something was lost in translation. If anyone can help me make sense of the two passages (ie. what they mean/where they come from, if applicable) I'd truly appreciate it.
Thanks mefi community!
