The Power of Purpose

Purpose is fundamental to health, healing, happiness, and longevity—Richard coaches us to step on to the path of purposeful living to find meaning and live longer, better.

UNPACK. REPACK. REPEAT. These are the new life skills of the 21st century.

Many of us have come to acknowledge publicly what we privately felt all along, that surviving adolescence and early adulthood did not ensure us a tranquil, jolt-free passage through the rest of our lives. We change. Our priorities shift; confidence grows, dissolves into doubt, returns; relationships evolve, break apart, reform; work loses energy or takes on new —all creating the need to unpack, repack, and repeat. We need to revisit our purpose. Purpose is not a luxury for the gifted few. It is fundamental. it gives us the will to not just live, but to live long and well.
