Want To See A Life Purpose Statement?
Life Purpose Statements
If you want to know what you were born to do, what work you were meant to succeed at and accomplish -- creating a life purpose statement is the best way to achieve that.
What is A Life Purpose Statement?
A life purpose statement describes in clear and full detail the reason you exist, why you are here now and how you see your life unfolding.
Why Is A Life Statement Important?
With all the distractions in life, and all the opportunities -- it is hard to separate what is important from what seems urgent or what everyone expects of you. And making life decisions both large and small can be a challenge when you do not know what the future holds or where you are going in life.
A detailed life purpose statement offers you a road map by giving you a clear vision of where you want your life journey to take you. It can act as a compass to help guide you through a maze of job options and college majors. It can help you pick the right school, city to live in and the right next job for you.
