Wondering your Life’s Purpose?

This Ted Talk speaker was recently at a class reunion from Yale. Much of the group was privileged, educated, successful, but yet not happy. The ones who were happy had studied for the joy of learning – history, theater, art, classes. To find your life’s purpose, answer these 5 questions …

  1. Who are you? IE, what is your name?
  2. What do you do? IE, teach, write, what are you qualified to do?
  3. Who do you do it for?
  4. What do those people want or need?
  5. What they got out of it? IE, how do they change as a result?

Once you answer your questions, you can form a statement showing what you do, who you do it for, and what they get of out it. Here’s some examples …

  • I write books for children so they can fall asleep at night and have awesome dreams.
  • I design apparel for men and women who need affordable choices so they can look and feel their best.
  • I train entrepreneurs and creative people to make decisive actions to they can get their greatest work into the world.
