The Power of Being "On Purpose"
IconThe Power of Being "On Purpose" Are you #147;on purpose?#148; Being #147;on purpose#148; is knowing what you want to do with your life and doing it because it expresses who you really are. Tiger Woods, Oprah, Warren Buffet, Bill Gates. They're "on purpose." They're living the life they were born to live. It's hard to imagine them doing anything else. No wonder they#146;re so successful! Here are four characteristics of people #147;on purpose.#148; Passion: They love what they do. If they weren't getting paid, they'd do it for free. Talent: They're good at what they do. Call it talent, ability or genius#151;they#146;ve got it. Values: Doing what they do is extremely important to them. Destiny: They have a sense that they are doing what they were born to do#151;making their own unique contribution. It's almost a spiritual thing. It#146;s their destiny. Is purpose only found in the lives of genius? Absolutely not! We believe every person has a unique purpose#151;including you. You have unique talents, abilities, interests and values that only you can bring into greatness. You have a destiny that only you can fulfill. So how do you begin to tap into this sense of purpose?
