This workbook helps people understand their purpose from the seven unique perspectives which create a holistic picture of what you are ideally designed to do in life. It creates a “blueprint for fulfillment” for each person by understanding their "Life Purpose DNA".

Sample Chapter


111 Inspirational Quotes & Exercises to Find Your Purpose in Life evolved over several years. I have watched people’s hunger to find their life purpose grow from a novelty concept into something that guides their lives—natally, developmentally, psychologically, professionally, spiritually, mystically, and transitionally. This workbook will help people truly understand and articulate their life purpose from each of these perspectives. The seven sections of exercises are divided in half, with sixty exercises exploring the developmental, practical, psychological, and professional, and fifty-one exercises tapping into the intuitive and energetic.

People who know their life purpose are more directed and fulfilled in their lives because they have a path on which they can consciously journey. Simply, a life purpose is what we consciously put our life force energy into knowing, accomplishing, and fulfilling.

Definition of Life Purpose

Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary defines purpose as an “aim, intention, or to put forth.” Therefore, one understanding of your life purpose is what you’re putting your energy into or the aim or intention of all your external efforts.

For example, let’s say you have a practical intention to be a good mother. Your life purpose might manifest as helping your children become self-sufficient, independent, conscious human beings by nurturing their interests, not what you or society thinks they should do or be. Or you could be an artist who dedicates your life to making beautiful creations out of trash, and your life purpose is to help people become conscious of their waste and creative ways to reuse it rather than just unconsciously discarding unwanted items.

Spiritually, your life purpose could be to fulfill a karmic debt or to do something that the Divine has guided or commanded you to do, such as Moses leading his people. Each person’s purpose is valuable and contributes something to life and to the well-being of the planet. No matter how small or large, it helps to fulfill that mission.

Deepak Chopra, in his book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, offers three practical criteria to know that you have found your life purpose:

• It’s a unique gift or talent that you have in this life.

• You know how to use that talent in some type of service.

• It must, in some way, benefit humanity and the planet.

Each individual’s true life purpose will fulfill these three criteria. You can use the examples in the previous paragraph to intellectually understand how each action is the fulfillment of a life purpose when it meets these three criteria. People each have a purpose to fulfill, even if they aren’t aware of the long-term impact or the outcome of their actions. They are motivated by the desire to fulfill their life purpose using their true potential in the world...

Your Life Purpose is Multifaceted

People often feel frustrated because they don't know "where to find their purpose" or "how to know they've found their life purpose." Your purpose in life is bigger than you are and is multifaceted in nature. Your life purpose is both practical - requiring you do something and requiring the best of who you are - and spiritual, as every part of your being participates in accomplishing it. There is a divine and inspired quality to your life purpose, no matter what it is. Think of all the people you know who are "on a mission." There is an exalted awareness and an honoring that you feel about fulfilling whatever your purpose asks of you. It is always something positive that supports and sustains life. Emotionally, people who have found their life purpose feel a sense of relief, knowing they have a focus and direction from within that guides their life. This clarity and direction helps them know what decision to make and what path to follow.
