What am I searching for?

Life Purpose is a popular buzzword in the spiritual community. There are tons of books written to help you discover it, and there seems to be this idea that you need to figure out your Life Purpose in order to be on your spiritual path.

What is My Life Missing? What Am I Searching for?

Success is often the first step toward disaster. The idea of progress is often the enemy of actual progress. And then stood there awkwardly for a moment, gauging how brutally honest I was willing to be with someone I just met. This guy was very enthusiastic, clearly ready to spend a lot of money on whatever problem someone decided to tell him he had. He bristled a bit at my questions. Riley said that the Disease of More explains why teams who win championships are often ultimately dethroned, not by other, better teams, but by forces from within the organization itself. The players, like most people, want more.

There were many years in my life when I realized I was searching for something. There was a void within me that I could never fill. There was a level of happiness I could never achieve.

Out of all the hundreds of people we meet and the relationships we build in our lifetime, we undervalue the most important of all — our relationship with ourselves. We like to put our faith in people; hoping that they could heal the broken parts and fill the empty spaces of our hearts.

I often have my coaching clients write a letter to their future self.

Looking for deeper meaning and purpose? Want to identify the most intimate core of your being? How does in affect your wellbeing? From ancient times through the modern era, this core aspect of humanity is at the center of debate and discussion. We know so much about the world around us. Yet, we know so little about, the very essence of our being! If not, you feel like you are missing something.

I searched high and low for answers. I was smart and resourceful. I was making an effort. It was only years later I shifted my attention to a different part of the equation, and started to focus less on the answers and more on the questions.
