“Every dream will be challenged!”

These powerful words from a mentor of mine have been burned in fire into my memory.

4 Ways Your Burning Purpose Is Unique And Special

Your Burning Purpose

Every morning, we wake up and get ready to do some things. Often those things revolve around our job, our business or our hobbies.

Day after day, week after week, year after year, we do them.

But… Why?

What drives you to do what you do?

Sometimes it is necessity. Sometimes it is passion. Even curiosity, compulsion or coercion.

But when you take a closer look, it becomes obvious that all this is driven by something more abstract, that is unique and special to the human state. And that is…

Your Purpose.

What Is Purpose?
