Living a life of purpose isn’t about affecting the world, it’s about affecting your life.

One of the reason I enjoy podcasting and want to make Evolving Life the best I can make it is because I feel as if I am sharing the human experience. As humans, we all have so much in common. I think a lot of us are so busy living our lives, some of us struggling through it we don’t realize that others are having similar experiences. I believe that when we realize that we have commonality with others and we see how others deal with similar issues; it helps us in so many ways. It helps us to be stronger, to keep trying, and to solve our personal problems more easily.

I want to share something else I think many of us have in common. Finding and embracing what our purpose is in life. The reality is most of us struggle to understand what we want from life. Whether we are in our 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s. Even if we completed all the major life events like finish school, find our life partner, had children, and a career.

Let’s explore what life’s purpose is, and share 7 steps to discovering yours according to one of the most prolific and inspirational coach there is, Tony Robbins.
