The Transformational Effects of Purpose on 5 of Life’s Largest Challenges

This week, as part of celebrating Life On Purpose Institute’s 10th Birthday, I’m starting a series entitled "The Transformational Effects of Purpose on 5 of Life’s Largest Challenges."  These challenges are not only some of the larger ones we face, but also the most universal.  They are:


*   Work Dissatisfaction: Do you go to work simply because you need to pay the bills, but your work doesn’t feel meaningful or a satisfying way to express your true nature?

*   Drifting through Life: Are you simply drifting through life?  Do you feel a little like the guy in the movie, Ground Hog Day, where each day feels just like a repeat of the day before?

*   Overwhelm & Clutter:  Do you ever feel overwhelmed by your life?  Is your inner and outer world filled with clutter?  Are you constantly putting off the things and people that matter the most to you because your life feels like it’s out of control?

*   Money & Financial Issues: Worrying about money appears to be a national, even an international pastime, more popular and widespread than soccer.

*   Relationship Challenges:  While our relationships with each other are so important to a fulfilling life, these same relationships can be some of our greatest challenges.

Now, what I’m about to state will probably not surprise you, given the topic of this ezine and that I’m the founder of Life On Purpose Institute, but I’m going to state it anyway.

Over the next few weeks I will outline how knowing your true life purpose with crystal clarity is the most important thing you can do to deal with each and every one of these 5 challenges.  Oh, it’s not the only thing you can do, not by a long shot.  But, and I’ll repeat it again, it’s THE ONE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO TO DEAL EFFECTIVELY WITH THESE 5 CHALLENGES.

Are you saying to yourself, "You mean to tell me that knowing my true purpose in life can really solve all these BIG problems?  Come on, I don’t believe you."  Stay tuned.  I’ve seen it time and time again, both in my own life and with my clients.

In fact, I’ll go even further.  Without some degree of clarity around your true life purpose, most people don’t stand a chance with problems of this size.  So, stay tuned.

In the meantime, I’m curious.  What are other life challenges that when combined with these 5 would be the Top Ten of Life Challenges?
