If you've ever googled "how to live a fulfilling life" or "finding happiness," you've probably run into this word over and over again: Purpose.
Some people swap “purpose” for “calling,” while others have strong opinions about keeping those two terms separate.
What personal development junkies do agree on is that you’re supposed to have a purpose, know your purpose, and live it every day. Basically...
No purpose = no fulfillment.
No pressure, right? 🙄
But what does having a purpose really mean, anyway, and why does it matter?
Does it apply to real life or just the high-minded daydreams of magical thinkers and positive psychology enthusiasts?
In this short video, I give my take on the definition of purpose and how having it can help us in life.
