The research on purpose is very impressive. There are health benefits galore. Purpose strengthens your immune system. People with a sense of purpose are less likely to experience a stroke or become addicted to alcohol and drugs. Having a sense of purpose even cuts your risk of Alzheimer’s disease. When you live a life of purpose, you’re more efficient, and you delegate better. Best of all, a sense of purpose is linked to a longer, healthier, more satisfying life. But, what does it mean to live a purposeful life? Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” In other words, to live a purposeful life means more than merely seeking adventure and pleasure. A life of purpose is a life of meaning. It’s a life where the deep yearnings of our heart and soul are met, where we’re connected and engaged with those around us. If you’re living mindfully and intentionally, you discover the purpose in each interaction. Fulfilling the yearning to connect, to matter, or to make a difference helps us to feel fulfilled and satisfied. Without purpose, people tend to be unengaged and not all that present in your day to day life. So, how do we get more purpose? How do we bring the benefits of living a purposeful life into our own lives? Today, Cathy Dimarchos, global business advisor and an award-winning mentor, will talk with us about how purpose can bring us into the moment, and create ripple effects for generations to come!
