When 10 years from now is over, will you look back and wonder "where did those 10 years go?" Will you be asking yourself the question of "why am I still doing what I am doing?"
Whether you do something different or not, ten years from now will happen anyway. The choice you have to make immediately is that you can discover your purpose now and live it in the next 10 years or you can wait the same 10 years and look back and ask "why am I still doing what I am doing?"
Discovering your purpose is one of the most fulfilling exercises that you can do. Living your purpose is the most fulfilling life that you can live. When you live your purpose, you will help other people discover and live theirs.
Start now! Take some time now to ask yourself, "Am I living my purpose?"

Find your purpose as an individual: what is the best use of your time, talent and passion? Have a conversation with your coach about your occupation.
Why do I have the job I have?
Who does my work serve?
What do they do with what I provide?
Do they in turn, help others with what I give them?
Is there integrity in what I do for a living?
If I could be doing anything I wanted to do, assured that all my living expenses and material needs and desires would somehow be fulfilled, would I be working where I currently am employed or operate?
Are there any negative aspects to my work? Can I change any negative aspects?
What is positive about my work?
Can I achieve my purpose only in this job?
Do I wake up in the morning excited for the day, or do I dread what is ahead of me?
If I could wake up every morning, excited to face the day and eager to get to work, what would that day look like?
