I’ve been thinking about the idea of living with purpose
for quite some time. It’s an interesting concept. One that can have a positive
impact in every area of your life. Living with purpose enables us to get more
done and create greater meaning in our lives. Perhaps the most important
benefit is we feel happier and more fulfilled. All of these things make this an
important topic to discuss. They are also what inspired me to create a 30 day
series of blog posts to inspire us to action.
Over the course of the month we’ll take a look at living

you’ve set based on your purpose.
Living with purpose will enable you to define and establish
a clear set of core values to guide you based on your purpose. This will come
in handy when it comes time to make a decision. You can think of these values
as your compass keeping you on track as you go.
Most importantly, living with purpose gives you a great
sense of self-worth. You know what you’re doing and you’re actively working
towards the goals you’ve set. Living your life with purpose will greatly
increase your overall happiness while deepening your feelings of self-worth and
In the end that’s what it’s really about, isn’t it? We all
want to live a happy and fulfilled life that has meaning. That’s why it’s
important to start thinking about living with purpose.
