Standard

Last week I defined some key aspects of purpose. Now that we have a better idea of what it is and isn’t, it’s time for a gut check.

Three Things About Purpose

Standard

Each of us has a purpose for being on this earth. If you discover that purpose, you unlock your ability to truly transform this world and live a complete life. You are uniquely designed to fulfill that purpose and all of your experiences (good and bad) exist to drive you closer to fulfilling that purpose, if you let them. Those are big ifs. There’s no guarantee that you will ever discover or walk in your purpose. In fact, many people never do.
