You would be amazed at how many people go through their life from day to day and even year to year as what I refer to as “Life Wanderers” without a definite life purpose, direction or any sense of how today matters when it comes to the rest of their life.

Purpose can mean many things to many people but let’s keep this simple – purpose is having a specific life direction that guides and leads you through each day’s opportunities, choices, decisions and challenges. It doesn’t matter your position, age, roles, education, gender, race or history – what matters is how you live today and what meaning this has on your entire life.

Purpose is a commitment to live with gusto, courage, faith, hope and discipline – whether you are employed, retired, a parent or any other life role.

Purpose is a guiding philosophy that contributes to your every decision, action, behavior and goal. It is the willingness to stick with it or stay on the chosen path regardless of life’s problems, disappointments, failures and heartaches.

As a global speaker I have had many circumstances in life that have challenged me to question my purpose when in times of trials and adversity I questioned the integrity of my purpose and often asked myself – is it worth it? Is this really what I am meant to do? Is there something better or more out there? And, I’m not sure how much more of this I can handle – maybe it’s time for a new direction.

But in the end my purpose was imbedded in my DNA and I somehow always stuck with it. In the end life matters – what you accomplish, who you are, who you serve, what you learn, how you help or teach others and finally your ability in the end to say – yes – it was all worth it – I am glad I didn’t stray from my purpose, mission and reason for living – I have lived a meaningful and wonderful life.

A few questions

1)   Do you have a life purpose?

2)   Do you ever question it?

3)   Have you given up your purpose due to others or circumstances?

4)   Has your purpose left you with any regrets?
