“You Are Never too Old to Find Your Purpose or Create Your Legacy"

"A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives." ~Jackie Robinson

You want to know your purpose, i.e., why are you still here?  As Jackie Robinson once famously said, "We are here for the impact we make on other lives."  As you age, you may begin to wonder whether you still have a purpose or whether you are just marking time.

You may be feeling stuck.  You may have retired and don't really want to go back to a full-time job, but you still want to feel inspired, passionate and excited about your life.  You no longer want to be fulfilling obligations instead of chasing your dreams.

Viktor Frankl, Holocaust survivor, wrote in his book Man's Search for Meaning, that human beings want meaning.  He learned that there are three things that give life meaning: first, a project; second, a significant relationship; and third, a redemptive view of suffering.  "If people have a job to do, even in the midst of suffering, they have a reason to live another day," writes Frankl. 

Barbara Sher, the godmother of living a fulfilling life writes, "You're ready to do your own thing and be your own person.  You could take up a hobby, but in your heart you know you want far more than that.  You want something new to learn, something that rings in your soul and makes you forget the time, something you could be brilliant at."

If you're ready to find your brilliance and your passion, come join me in Tyler and let's get started on finding your dream.


The workshop will be on Friday morning during the Weekend Workshop.
