Research has found that purpose is one of the most important elements of a happy and fulfilling life. At the heart of it, purpose is about helping you live an authentic life - figuring out what unique contribution you can bring to the world.
The Discovering My Purpose process takes time to complete, but it will be some of the best time you will ever invest. Stephen Covey has a great quote about life ambition, "If the ladder is not leaning against the right wall, every step we take just gets us to the wrong place faster."
We have all seen those people whose lives look picture perfect - successful, rich, and well-respected, but they are deeply unhappy. This happens a lot! Most of the time this is because they didn't let their purpose direct their lives, so they climbed the ladder but still wound up in the wrong place. We don't want that to be you.

- Mental Benefits - increased resilience and persistence. This is a magical combination because resilience and persistence are the two key components that lead to success.
- Emotional Benefits - less depression and anxiety. People who live lives of purpose are likely to be happier.
