Quotable Coach: Why Are You Here?


“Why am I here? What’s it all about?” People often say these things with a laugh, like these questions are naïve or trite.

But deep down, we all still want to know the answer, don’t we?

Outside facts can change, and gurus can disappoint, so it’s really up to us to simply declare why we’re here. Your answer’s going to be made-up in any case, so why not make up one that serves your values and your abilities best?

As soon as you’ve articulated your purpose here on this planet, life becomes a lot simpler, and you can see the next right step to take. You might also discover that you’ve been operating under some “truths” that you don’t like so much, and now have an opportunity to make up better ones.
