Discovering Our Purpose, Treasuring Our Time

“Is There More to Life Than This!?” 

A guest post by Tammi Brannan of Instinctive Life.

 Discovering Purpose, Treasuring Time“I’ve wondered my whole life whether or not there is such a thing as a purpose to our lives. Are we here to work and die, or is there more to it?”

This was a question I heard the other day from a woman in her 60s, who has no financial need to continue working, yet feels this unresolved issue of purpose. Why is she here, and has she fulfilled that need?

We all have a purpose, and until it’s discovered, life has a wandering feeling that grows over time.

Peter Diamandis Releases a BOLD New Book for Entrepreneurs

BOLD-BookI was grateful to have the opportunity to once again attend Peter Diamandis’s Abundance 360 Summit  for entrepreneurs and thought leaders. Founder of the X PRIZE Foundation, Singularity University and a dozen tech companies, and named as one of Fortune’s “Top 50 leaders” Peter truly is one of the compelling thought-leaders of our time.

(We won’t try to repeat his many accomplishments in this post, but you can learn about several of them in an earlier blog post featuring Diamandis and “Peter’s Laws.”)

Abundance 360 is an opportunity to learn with and from entrepreneurial thought-leaders about the technology that is driving (and sometimes disrupting) our economies and what it will take to be a leader and change-maker in the future. We immersed ourselves for 2-1/2 days about such topics as: Continue reading

“Character is the ability to carry out a good resolution long after the excitement of the moment has passed.”
- Cavett Robert

Resolutions List

 

Last year we published Parts 1 and 2 of “Make a Million Dollar Resolution,” and today, we continue with Part 3.

The Power of Decisions

The decisions you make today, combined with actions and habits in alignment with your decisions, can add as much as a million dollars or more to your wealth over time. Whether the decision is a New Year’s resolution or made in June or August is irrelevant, but the beginning of a new year is the most popular time for setting new goals and intentions.
