The Power of Purpose, 3rd Edition

To get a life, you need a purpose in life!  Purpose is fundamental to health, healing, and happiness.  Purpose gives us the will not just to live but to live long and well.  The good news is, purpose isn’t a luxury reserved for a gifted few but something each one of us already possesses.  In this new edition of his bestselling classic, legendary personal coach Richard Leider offers brand-new tools and techniques for discovering it.

The third edition has been completely revised and updated – in addition to new stories and examples, it features four new chapters.  “Purpose across the Ages” looks at the three stages purpose can move through during our lives.  “The 24-Hour Purpose Retreat” includes seven mind-opening questions to help you unlock your purpose (and there’s a “default purpose” you can go to if you’re struggling).  “The Purpose Checkup” offers a new tool for periodically evaluating the status of your purpose, just like you do with your finances or your health.

And in “Can Science Explain Purpose?” we learn what researchers are discovering about how an increased sense of purpose can improve our health, healing, happiness, and longevity.

Our purpose is an active expression of the deepest dimension within us.  Leider details a graceful, practical, and ultimately spiritual process for making it central to your life.  This revitalized guide will help you find your reason to get up in the morning and integrate it into everything you do.
