What We Discuss in this Episode:

  • We know life is about compromise, but once we know why you have been placed on this earth, you can life an uncompromised life that centers on your purpose.
  • Finding your purpose requires you to take the uncommon road. You might have to reflect and do things that are uncomfortable and unpopular. But it is the root of happiness.
  • To find your purpose, start the process by thinking about what you’re really good at doing, what you’re passionate about, and what you would do for free.
  • Practically, the way to keep your purpose front and center is to find what fills you up and get in that space before the day starts.
  • When you are acting within your purpose, other people can sense that and will seek you out. Delaying that process only adds stress to your life.
  • We can’t always determine what our purpose is because we need to embrace the process and life experience that allows that clarity to come.
  • All meaningful purposes will impact others in a positive way.
