For years I’ve used what I call the Life Purpose Questionnaire to help people discover next steps toward their passion. Simple, effective, and to the point — these are questions I’ve collected and taught from that have helped many people, and are a great tool to dig deeper and learn more about what you want in life (and what Life wants from you).
I included my version of the Life Purpose Questionnaire in my book My Life Contract, but if you want to take the Questionnaire now, click HERE to find the questions on Innerself.com.
One of the most exciting interviews I experienced in my recent promotion for My Life Contract was with Dr. Susan Kolb, who hosts a radio show called Temple of Health. She’s doing amazing work in the world, and this was an interesting and inspiring conversation. You can listen HERE. When you go to the interview page, browse around so you can see the cutting-edge work that Dr. Kolb is doing!
How do we move from where we are to where we want to be?
And how can we begin to experience more “life” in our every day experience?
Radio host Bill Kenower and I discussed these very things recently in his show Author2Author, and it was truly an enjoyable and inspirational conversation! If you are ready to write that book, or start that new business, or go for your dream, then this interview will help to motivate you.
Amazon is now listing my new book, which is on-sale early September. This book grew out of my workshops and classes that I’ve given over the years, and contains the basics of my Stage One philosophy. It’s a simple-but-powerful method to identify your dreams, and be inspired to move toward your dreams every day — and learn how Life can support you as you do.
I’ll be giving more information about this book in the upcoming weeks. In the meantime, you can pre-order the book HERE from Amazon, and HERE from Barnes & Noble.
“The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat. If you find yourself lacking in persistence, this weakness may be remedied by building a stronger fire under your desires.”
Traveling around the country, talking to people about their passion and purpose, I often hear people say about their job, “well, I don’t love to do it, but I’m good at it, so maybe I should just keep doing it.”
That might sound reasonable, but in reality it’s a way that we use to stay comfortable, to avoid risk, to not take any chances. But what if the reverse was also true? What if just because you are good at something, it doesn’t mean you should do it? And more importantly, to borrow a line from my brilliant friend Tama Kieves, what if you realized that since you are good at something you don’t love, you might just very well be great at something you do love?
