“I believe each of us is born with a life purpose. Identifying, acknowledging, and honouring this purpose is perhaps the most important action successful people take.” Jack Canfield
As one of the authors of the “Chicken for the Soul,” books, Jack Canfield could certainly consider himself successful and therefore be qualified to comment about the pre-requisites for getting there. I’m sure those of us who have heard him speak or read his books, would think that he is living his life on purpose. Some of us are lucky enough to know very early on in life what we want to do with the hours we are on this earth. With the single minded approach that our purpose can give us, it looks from the outside, that these people find it easier to reach the success they’re wanting.
However often these people don’t even think about the success they may achieve, because the passion of living the life they really desire is what it is all about. Unfortunately there are a lot of people in this world who have no idea of what their purpose is in life because they have been conditioned from a very early age to train for something that parents or teachers thought was the best ‘way to go.’ They have chosen subjects at school that really don’t resonate but it appears that those subjects are going to create the best outcomes in a monetary sense. Meanwhile they could be shrivelling up inside because they are not listening to their hearts , their inner drive or passion. If this is you, it is never too late to live your life knowing you are fulfilling your purpose!
Enjoy living your life with purpose!
