Living a purpose-driven life

Living a purpose-driven life


Howdy! Welcome, I’m glad you’re here.

I know you’re here because you’re interested in living a Purpose-Driven Life and you’re in the right place! I spent more than a decade inquiring about what it is to live a Purpose-Driven Life.

At one point in my life, I was struggling, and definitely not living a purpose-driven life. I was drinking too much, overweight, unhappy at work, passed over for promotions four times in three years, and my wife treated me terribly when I got home.

Things were not working out for me.

For over a decade since then, I’ve put a lot of thought into it. As I turned my life around, I realized I hadn’t spent much of my life focused on the most important things. I suffered and struggled during that time, and as I made the transition.

As I better understood and defined my priorities for myself and committed to what I determined were the most important things to me, my life turned around. This, for me, is my purpose-driven life.

I spent years of my life and tens of thousands of dollars learning what I’m about to share with you and defining the process my clients use to define and execute their purpose-driven lives.

If you’re interested in living a purpose-driven life, these are three things that are really going to be helpful to you.

1. Living a purpose-driven life with a personal assessment

The first thing and living a purpose-driven life is to find your purpose.

There are two straightforward, simple exercises you can do.

The first item of the two is to do a self-awareness check, an inquiry and inventory about:

  • What are areas of life that interest you?
  • What are the areas that you do really well?
  • What are the areas that you don’t want to do?

Also, ask questions to develop a sense of self-awareness about:

  • What and where are your strengths?
  • What and where are your weaknesses?
  • Where do you believe your focus ought to be?
  • Where has your focus been that you haven’t liked?

If you’re interested, I’ve got a blueprint below: the Life Purpose Blueprint. It’ll walk you through the four types of questions, about 15 different questions that will help you get much more precise in terms of where you should focus based on your personal life, interests, skills, background, beliefs, etc.

2. Living a purpose-driven life with goal setting

The second thing you want to do, if you are interested in living a purpose-driven life, is to think long-term. Think about your legacy and big-picture goals and interests at the end of your life. Looking back, what’s going to be the thing that if you’ve accomplished it, you have lived a purpose-driven life?

You want to think with an engineering mindset, using design thinking, with the end in mind: what it is you want your life to be for?

That’s a fairly simple exercise and fun exercise, to think out for a few decades. From that point of view, what is it that, if you accomplished it, your life is worthwhile and well lived?

Think shorter term as well. In three or four years, what will put you on the path to that multi-decade goal, and what will have been worthwhile in three or four years?

Then, back up from there. In three or four months, what’s going to put you on the path, and what are going to be the things you will want to do or accomplish or work toward during that time? This type of “infinite focus” perspective will give you more perspective on what it is for you to live a purpose-driven life.

I also have an “Infinite Focus Blueprint.” If you reach out to me, I will give it to you.

3. Living a purpose-driven life by creating a plan

The third thing you’ll want to do, as far as living a purpose-driven life, is to get an action.

Create a plan, and really get specific about:

  • What you’re going to do.
  • Who you’re going to do it with.
  • How you’re going to do it.
  • Where you’re not going to do.

You can find more help to create a plan on this website or in the Blueprint below.

All of us have an infinite number of choices about what we can do or not do, who we can be with, and where we can be and not be. You want to choose the ones that are organized around fulfilling your ideas about living a purpose-driven life.

Those are three things you can do, and I have many more if you join my community, which you can do, starting by getting my blueprint below.

Let’s Connect!

My Facebook group has each of those tools available to you and more. I do hope you will show up and participate. There’s a link down below. The tools are available. They’re simple, anyone can do it with a junior high education. Grade school kids always talk about these things and write essays about these things.

Somehow, in the course of daily life, and growing up and adulting and all that, we go get that job and we focus on making a living, and our purpose-driven life can get forgotten.

Let’s rediscover our purpose-driven life, and let’s make a difference.

You were put on this earth for a reason, and I’m excited about helping you and others live your purpose-driven life.

I look forward to seeing you very soon.
