Book description: 

  • An extensively revised and updated edition of the classic bestseller (more than 150,000 copies sold).
  • Provides a detailed and practical process for uncovering your purpose
  • Illustrated with inspiring stories and eye-opening research

We all want to find our purpose—that thing that makes us feel like our life matters. Legendary coach and vitality expert Richard Leider defines purpose as that deepest dimension within us that tells us who we are, where we came from, why we’re here, and where we’re going. Purpose fills us with passion, drive and direction. When all else seems unsettled, uncertain, or impermanent, purpose gives us the will not just to live, but to live long and well. It’s not a grand concept reserved for a gifted few, but something each one of us possesses, needing only to be uncovered.

Twenty-five years after the publication of the first edition, Richard Leider has completely rethought his bestselling classic, adding new stories and new practices, eliminating some chapters and revising and expanding others.  The result is a book that sums up what he has learned in a quarter century of guiding people from all walks of life on their journeys to meaning and fulfillment.

Leider details a graceful, practical, and ultimately spiritual process for uncovering your purpose and making it central to your life. “Purpose is not a job or a role or a goal,”, he writes.  “It is a mindset—a choice.  It is the choice to bring who we are, our gifts and energies, to whatever we are doing.“ It is a choice that will not only improve our lives, but extend them—Leider sites a wealth of research proving that purpose is a key to longevity.

With all the demands of our 24/7 world an inspiring purpose is absolutely vital. If you've ever wondered why you should get up on Monday morning, The Power of Purpose will help you find the answer and integrate it into the whole of your life.
