Let Your Purpose In Life Find You

One of the most frequent questions I’m asked is “how do I find my purpose in life?” Actually, it’s very simple. You don’t find your purpose in life. Your purpose in life finds you.

One theory is that it was caught up in a major storm front and blown thousands of miles from its habitat. Hmmm… just like all our lives, I thought. […]
