B.7: Developing a Life Purpose

What are you here for?

What is the biggest thing you would like to accomplish?

A Story

The client asked the coach, “What do you mean by developing a life purpose?” He was puzzled, “How do I know what my life purpose is? I just want to live my life day by day and enjoy the day as it is”.  He continued, “Why would someone have to think about their whole life?”  The coach asked a powerful question, “Why do you think we exist here on earth?” “How did we get here?” If a person is operating on the belief that man just evolved, then people don’t need a life purpose. However, if you believe we are created as the Bible teaches, a life purpose aligns with the creator. The question that the coach pursued was, “why did He create you?”
