Some ask what is the secret to life.
But it is not a secret at all.
If it is a secret,
It is hidden in plain sight for all to see.
Yet, few ever discover it.
Because life gets in the way.

We find ourself on a treadmill.
And by the time we realize we are on it.
It is going to fast to get off.
The lucky ones,
They are knocked off.
Life kicks them in the groin.
Divorce, job loss, sickness, financial crash.
Some never recover,
Because they sit in self pity.
But for many …
It is the wake up call they needed
To wake up to life.
In their challenge and rediscovery,
they find their purpose in life.
It wasn’t what they were doing.
Often it wasn’t even on the radar.
This is the chance to recalibrate your life.
To redesign your life and even start over.
To live the way you want to live.
To live the way that makes you feel alive.
For the first time to BE alive from within,
Instead of seeking it from the outside.
Joseph Campbell said,
“I don’t think people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.”
Most find a fragment of feeling alive by buying things.
By watching TV or getting lost online.
This is what they want you to do.
It raises the stock prices and market share.
It has the same effect as taking a drug,
It lights up your brain in the same way.
But what really makes you feel alive,
Is finding what truly lights you up.
What truly makes you feel alive,
Is finding something greater than yourself.
And then living that life.
That is your purpose.
So what is that ONE purpose in life?
To discover your potential.
To wake up to your greatness.
And then do whatever it takes to live it!
