Do you have a definite purpose that guides your ambitions,
vision, and goals?
It doesn’t matter how you think you arrived here on this
planet or under whose direction — the fact remains that
each of us has specific talents and gifts that are uniquely
coded within our own DNA.
As you go through life, you don’t just pick up things you
like doing by chance. You discover what you’re good at
because you were meant to discover it, just as you were
meant to figure out what your fingers do, and how your
elbows work. Your unique gifts are hardwired into your
system just as surely as your lungs are given their
blueprint to breathe.
And it’s from these specific talents and gifts that you’re
able to define and determine your definite purpose… the
reason why you’re here. What’s in you cannot be found in
another living human being.
In fact, it’s quite possible that what you bring to the
table hasn’t been duplicated — ever — since time began.
That’s right! This “purpose” is serious business.
If you fail to determine your definite purpose, everything

will wander through life, never quite feeling that you’re
“in the flow.” I say, then, that it’s imperative you
recognize what it is you’re good at — what it is you really
love to do.
Your purpose in this lifetime is to do the thing that you
People will tell you they already know what they’re good at,
and what they love to do most, but they’ll never earn money
doing it. Whoever gave you that idea? When you’re sorting
out your purpose, I don’t want you thinking about THAT non-
issue at all.
You can earn money at anything. Once you determine your
purpose, you won’t even have to think hard on how to earn
money — it’s as if you’re being guided by an unseen hand,
heading in the right direction… and everything falls into
The key to your life is not that you settle for the “safe”
thing that will bring in the money. The key is to turn and
do what you really love. Fall in love with an idea. That’s
your life! That’s your purpose.
