    EP.95 - Purpose Driving Force, the IMPORTANCE of Purpose | Further Your Lifestyle Podcast

    When we have something to root ourselves into, to remind us of why we are doing it, to keep us honest, humbled and with a baseline - we can move forward with a focused direction.

    Without the purpose, we will be left asking WHY.

    If you're feeling unfulfilled or disconnected from your goals and values, this episode can help you discover your personal purpose driving force and provide a sense of meaning and direction in your life.
