Identify Your Purpose in 5 easy Steps: not just for Dummies’ and CEO’s

How do you identify what your Purpose is? The journey begins with the first emotional thought, followed by the first physical step, which allows you to grow and fine-tune your Purpose as you engage Life head-on. The goal is to develop a greater sense of meaning of Life as it pertains to you. Not what it means to your family, friends, or others, nor what they expect of you. This is about you and your meaning. Your Purpose does not have to be a two-page essay or a thesis to define what and who you are as a person. It is specific details, which define your overall desires, passions, hopes, and dreams. The details will fall out when you choose specific goals along the way, and come up with a specific plan to achieve those goals. This is indeed part of the process of fulfilling your Purpose. Use the KISS principle: Keep It Simple Silly!
