This morning I received the pre-coaching information
profile from a 40-yr-old teacher. He wrote, "I feel

moving along in this journey called life. Are you clear
on where you are going? On what your purpose here
is? If not, why not? How can we find fulfillment, peace

confidence of living out your purpose:

  • Your Skills & Abilities

  • Your Personality Traits

  • Your Values, Dreams & Passions

There should be enough information from these three
areas to help you identify your direction and purpose.

every day that I couldn't find what it was I was sent
here to do."
If this is where you are today, commit
to change tomorrow. Don't let that be the final
summary of your life.
