What Is Your Purpose In Life?

Real Estate Agent with Endless Summer Realty

Recently I attended a Date with Destiny event in Palm Desert with Tony Robbins. We had an amazing week of growth, learning and friendship. One of the things that he had us do was to take a look at what the purpose of our life was and to write a mission statement or purpose about it.

This was something not just off of the top of your head, but something that he wanted us to pull from deep inside, write down, and then use as an inspiration all through the years to come. It was amazing to see that some people had no idea of what their purpose was, some knew right away, and some, after much deliberation came up with something totally different than what they would have thought would be their mission or purpose.

Do you know what your purpose is? Life without purpose is certainly less motivating and does not have the driving force that Life with Purpose has. Take some time before the year ends, or spend some time on New Years day and think of what your purpose is. I will share with you how he had us write it out and also share with you my Life Purpose as well. 

I, Diane Grady-Klinge, do see, hear, know and feel, that the purpose of my life is to live with an abundance of love and gratitude and the ability and means to grow and contribute.

If you can write your own purpose and then read it daily to reinforce, you will see that it makes a positive difference in your life. I hope that this gift will help everyone that reads the post and I wish you all a very happy healthy and positive New Years!

Hi Diane,

Congratulations on attending the event, and getting such a great purpose statement from it.

Was there not a run away best seller a few years ago called, "The Purpose Driven Life"? It was written by a pastor in California.

I know I read it and it definately moved me.

I love the "Abundance of Love and Gratitude" in your purpose statement.

Diane - I like the idea of a Life Purpose.  I know mine would have something to do with growing food and children and nature . . .not sure how I would word it though.  Food for thought!

Diane, I agree with your thoughts on Lifes Purpose although I have to say it is hard for me think of what my deep down purpose is; I will work on that.  Happy New Year!

Diane, a very thoughtful post...i know i truly found my purpose last year by fundraising for the North Kingstown Food Pantry and then making every effort to take short sales my associates would not touch...i know now I was meant to do this and help people out of untenable situations...sometimes you just know.

Good Sunday morning.  To many of us take life day to day and fail to focus on the purpose that will make our days more meaningful.

Thanks so much for your reminder.
