Seeking Purpose. Finding Fulfillment.

Mark Twain said "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why." 

When you don't yet know what your why is, life can be, let's say, less than fulfilling. Not to worry! I can assure you that if you were born - which you clearly were since you are reading this - you have a purpose. 

But what does it mean to have purpose? And why is purpose so important? 

Fulfillment isn't just another word for purpose, by the way. They do go hand-in-hand but not in the way you may think. Your purpose goes far beyond how you make money. It goes far beyond what you do for others. It doesn't have to be connected to how you make your living. And it doesn't have to make sense to anyone else on the planet. 

Your purpose will take many forms throughout your life - sometimes very disparate expressions in fact - as it comes into its fullest expression through you. This doesn't mean your purpose has changed. It simply means it's "maturing." 

So, how do you find your purpose in the first place? And even more importantly how do you live your purpose?

Being purposeful in how you move through your days, how you make choices in your life, and how you interact with others is as important as moving toward a specific expression of your purpose. You'll find loads of resources here to support you in living a purposeful fulfilling life - every day.  

Together we'll explore all this and much more...

Life Mastery and the Search for Meaning

If we’re honest with ourselves, leaving a legacy sounds a little daunting, doesn’t it?
