What is your purpose in life?
To serve and to help other people be of service.
Where does it come from and how did you discover it?
I’ve always felt that taking care of others is the single greatest thing you can do with your life. And I know that so many people want to do a little good in the world, but have absolutely no idea what to do or where to start. Some of the programs I created, like Letters of Love, were designed in part to help others be of service.
How does this purpose play out in your everyday life and work?
I try my best to see everything I do as a genuine act of service. Whether it’s a client I’m seeing or a customer service rep who’s helping me through an issue with my email. From the smallest interaction to the most complex, try to see the person in front of you as just that: a person. Someone with dreams and challenges that may be harder than you can imagine. Do that regularly and it’s pretty hard not to want to take good care of the people around you.
How do you remain encouraged and energized?
The more you give, the more your heart is filled. It’s like a never-ending stream.
What is one thing that you do everyday that is a necessity for your success?
I think about how I can help make someone’s life better. Then, do it.
Any other thoughts or words of encouragement for those on the path of discovering their purpose?
Take some time to discover what matters most to you. Then, look at what’s in your personal toolbox. It’s filled with all of your unique skills and resources. Marry it all together to create your own personal path of giving. You don’t need to make a million to make a difference and you don’t have to be a saint to be of service. Everyone, no matter who they are, has more to give than they think.
