What's Your Life's True Purpose?

Lewis Carroll


I want to discuss your life’s true journey. Perhaps it’s not the one you’re on right now, but it’s the one you’re supposed to be on. It seems to me that some folks either never get there or come to a realization of their true life’s purpose quite late in life. But that doesn’t have to be the way of it for me, or for you.

Getting on the path is a choice, perhaps the most important one we have. And you can start by letting go of so much of the nonsense that fills our daily lives. 

Much of life seems a disruption, a series of obstacles, barriers and difficult situations to either confront or avoid, and we don't always do so in the right frame of mind.

Life Is A Gift

The fact is life is a gift and the way we treat that gift is determined by a series of choices you make which, in turn, are underpinned by a frame of mind and a particular world view.

It’s your choice, regardless of the hand you feel you’ve been dealt, to make the most of it, each and every day. Find guidance and inspiration where necessary, make the changes that need to be made and live the life you’re supposed to be living.

Many of those changes will seem like baby steps, which is why they can be undertaken quite easily and effectively. But a bunch of one percent changes will add up to real and significant change, quicker than you know. However, despite all the well intended information and inspiration in the world, only you can take the action required to bring real and long term change.

What I Believe

I’m of the belief that it’s not what happens to us, but what we make of what happens to us that determines the actual nature of our lives.

Life Is Not For The Armchair Traveler

Life needs to be lived, and we need to immerse ourselves in it and embrace life, energetically and with passion. The clocks ticking and it’s time for action.
