How do I find my purpose?

This is a question that I've been asking myself all through my 30s. And then when I turned 40, I had an epic meltdown because I hadn't figured out the answer to the question ‘What is my purpose?’

You see, in asking that question of ‘Why haven't I figured out what my purpose is?’ I negated everything that I had done -- all the relationships that I had created, all the academic achievements, all of the life that I had lived up until that point, and it’s because I didn't have the answer to this one question. Everything that had gone before it was meaningless.

This led me to a lot of self-reflection, introspection about what purpose is, and why we need to have a purpose in life.

The dictionary says that purpose is the reason something exists, and I 100% agree with that. But what I fundamentally disagree with is the fact that it's one thing, and that we have to have figured it out by a certain point in our lives.

I believe that we should be thinking of purpose as an evolution -- that you're constantly becoming.

In this episode, I would like to offer five questions. These are the more important questions to ask yourself when it comes to finding what your purpose is.
