Many people are much closer to living their life purpose than they think. Yet there’s a myth that can blind us to our deeper purpose …
The faulty thinking goes something like this: “I just need to know exactly what I’m here to do. Then when it’s clear to me, I can successfully live my life purpose and fulfill my mission.” Here’s the problem. Your purpose isn’t an exact thing to do.

A goal may motivate us to take challenging actions (change of diet, exercise, routines) now to experience a better future.
As research shows, though, goals can easily become too difficult and defeat our will. What started out as a loft intention can ironically end up lowering our self-esteem in what turns out to be another failed attempt.
Life purpose is a mysterious and important key to our spiritual growth. It’s like the magical treasure that gives meaning to life. Uncovering and living our life purpose takes each of us on a journey into the unknown. Unfortunately, without having a treasure map (tangible way to find it), your life purpose may …
