"The need for meaning and purpose is No. 1," Professor Rozanski adds. "It's the deepest driver of well-being there is."
A strong life purpose was defined as, “a self-organizing life aim that stimulates goals.”
This isn’t just some person’s opinion or assumption but rather based on a study done in 2006 that lasted 4 years (hit me up & I can send you the study).
They found that people without a strong life purpose were more than twice as likely to die compared with those who had one.
Even more interesting, the association between a low level of purpose in life & death remained true despite how rich or poor participants were, even regardless of gender, race, or education level!
And on top of this, the association is so strong that having a life purpose appears to be more important for decreasing risk of death than drinking, smoking or exercising regularly!
Read that again and let it sink in.
Well, duh, right? When we know ourselves inside and out, maximize the potential within and give the best of ourselves with great purpose, it gives us something to live for greater than ourselves selfishly.
And the mere fact that whatever status of rich & poor, whatever color, gender or education level, one’s purpose supersedes them all.
If you’re reading this and are on the outside looking in, wondering when your life is going to make sense, it’s time to dig deeper; don’t scroll on through, lean in.
I also want to make myself available to you because this is an area God has walked me through specifically and enabled me to walk others through in my coaching practice.
Don’t let doubt sink in and make you miss this opportunity. Take hold of it now and reach out.
See you on the other side.
