Discover what you’re passionate about and go after that. In Wishful Thinking: A Seeker’s ABC, Frederick Buechner writes, “The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.” When your passion meets the need of God’s children, that’s what you’re called to do!
How do you discover what your purpose in life is? Start by answering these questions:
– What gets you excited and makes you happy?
– Is anyone doing it? Research others who’ve made it happen and find out how they did it.
– Can you make money? If so, develop a business plan and start working part-time, or after your day job, until you’ve got a sustainable business that demands your full attention.
I want you to go after your passions but not if you can’t make a living doing so. That becomes a miserable lifestyle.

In this intense two-day, one-on-one with me, you will clearly define your life purpose, and learn to organize and balance around the life mission God has for you. It’s literally a process of discovery.
