A few days ago I posed a question to my Facebook friends that was pretty simple:
In one word, what is your definition of success?
I'll be honest, I didn't get as great of a response as I had hoped but the responses I did get were thought-provoking. Words like Determination, Love, and Fatherhood showed me that some people understand the value of the priceless things in life. I was relieved. I answered the question with the word Purpose because I believe it is the key to success. When you recognize what you are gifted to do well and actually do it, I believe, those actions will lead you into a successful and fulfilling life.
I know many people that get very anxious when they start thinking about purpose because they think it's some lofty idea that they need some greater level of education and intelligence to achieve. An article by Dr. Susan Biali for Psychology Today shed some light on purpose and things to understand about how to find it. I invite you to click on the button below and read it and get some new perspective on purpose as you continue the quest to find your own.
