(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


Purpose. A lot has been written and said about it because purpose is a significant part of a life well lived. Its power may lie in one simple thought: There is no forward without purpose.

Purpose is a stake in the ground. It positions.

Purpose is direction. It orients.

Purpose is clarity. It focuses.

Purpose is energizing. It empowers.

Purpose is supportive. It overcomes.

Of course unstructured experimenting and discovery are wonderful tools for living. It’s not always necessary to know your purpose; mindless wandering has its place.

But having a purpose – knowing where ‘forward’ is – quickens the journey.


Coaching Point: What’s your purpose? Where is forward?
