Why Finding Your Life Purpose Matters and How to Go About It

Finding your life purpose is one of the most meaningful experiences in a person's life.   Here is an excerpt from a presentation I gave at a convention in Houston, Texas a few years ago.

In all the research I’ve done on  life purpose, three examples stand out the most for me. 

The first is a story told by Victor Frankl, an Auschwitz survivor and author of Man's Search for Meaning, that shows how finding your life purpose can lift you out of the worst circumstance, even a NIGHTMARE circumstance, with a light that illuminates the entire inner vision of your mind.

The second is a personal experience I had in an airport restroom where the bathroom janitor, Valerie, turned her menial job into a labor of love that lifts people’s spirits. For me she raised the bar for how to live your life purpose, regardless of circumstance.  More about Valerie’s story here.

The third is my own mother who, ten years ago, at 70 years old, decided to become an athlete, something she had dreamed of when she was young, but her parents forbade it.  She now competes in the Senior Olympics and has won dozens of gold medals. (My Mom is the one on the left showing a little leg.)

Finding your Life Purpose
Can Brighten The Darkest of Times:
The Victor Frankl Story

During the second world war, Frankl was being herded with a group of men to work at the notorious Auschwitz concentration camp, where he was held prisoner. Soldiers were shouting “hurry up”, and pushing at the men with the butts of their rifles.

Frankl describes his experience as happening early in the day, and the air was icy cold. None of the men spoke as they were moved along, but suddenly he heard a quiet comment from beneath the upturned collar of the prisoner next to him. "If our wives could see us now! I do hope they are better off in THEIR camps and that they don't know what is happening to us."

In an INSTANT, Frankl wrote, he felt himself transformed, raised up -- ELEVATED -- by a feeling of love. It was the mere thought of his wife, and his OWN feeling of love for her, that shined in his mind. Finding your life purpose can be as Frankl described, “even brighter than the sun that was about to rise.”

This is what the power of finding your life purpose can do to raise you to a higher perspective. Frankl’s experience is what inspired me to write the Infinite Light guided exercise in my best selling Life Purpose Connection program.  At the risk of sounding hokey, it guides you to find the Infinite Light that is inside of you, like a Life Control Tower that directs your GPS. Just as an air-traffic control tower guides a plane…

Frankl had the experience of life purpose from the feeling of love he felt for his wife.  You can experience your life purpose through ANY of the 7 Rays I discuss in my article,  What is your life Purpose.  In my program, Life Purpose Connection, I guide you to finding your purpose and the infinite light that is inside of you.
