John said, “I want to know who I am and why I’m here. And, I don’t want to know. “
“Why not?,” I asked.
“It’s simple. If I know I’ll have to do something about it. I might have to change. I don’t know if I’m ready for that.”
Like John, you may not know the answer to these questions…not with consistent certainty. You do a lotto avoid criticism and scrutiny. Perhaps you’ve habitually distorted your desires and contorted your actions to conform and gain others’ acceptance and approval. Now, you find yourself equivocating; questioning your right to dream a different dream; fearing your truth; resisting saying, “YES!” to the call that comes from deep within. You doubt your ability to connect with your inner guidance and hear what this part of you has to say about who you are and why you’re here. You do the approach-avoidance dance and disconnect from the real you.
You ARE a Spirit of Purpose™!
Spirit, a spark of the divine universal life force, is the energy that animates your mind and body. You’re here to make a specific and unique contribution – to fill a need that no one else but you can satisfy. Your Spirit and Purpose have been calling to you – loudly or softly – all of your life. It will never be silenced.
How do you connect with your Spirit of Purpose™? That’s the question we’ll continue to explore because Spirit of Purpose™ is who and what you are, and it’s an organization with an evolving and growing community. The intent of Spirit of Purpose, LLC is to support you on your journey to remembering the deeper truth of who you really are and why you’re here.
Through our work, be it LIES That Limit, future books and articles, this blog (which will soon be renamed The Spirit of Purpose™ Blog), workshops, speaking engagements, as well as one-on-one and group coaching sessions, Spirit of Purpose, LLC is dedicated to providing content that will enable you to live a better life — one directed and driven by your authentic self. The journey begins when you identify and let go of all the ways you have been trained, tricked and coerced into living LIES That Limit.

Living and leading with the Spirit of Purpose™ you are is about reclaiming your real brilliance, power, majesty, creativity and calling. When you reconnect with that truth, you will have a better life – the one you were born to have.
