If I told you that this was the last year of your life, what would you do differently?
The question hit me right in the chest like a ton of bricks. What was my answer? Was I on the right path? I quickly laughed it off and made up an answer to change the subject. But inside this question had completely rocked me to my core and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. You see, I had never really stopped long enough to think about my purpose…
My story starts out like many others. I grew up in a mid-size town in the Midwest, attending school but not quite knowing what direction my life was going. I took classes and participated in events, but never stopped to ask myself where I wanted to go in life. The message I was constantly getting from those around me was that in order to be successful I needed to get an education and work my way to the top. So that is what I set out to do.
Fast forward a few years…
I graduated with a Master’s degree and landed a great job in a beautiful location. My life was following what those around me told me was a successful path and I thought that I had made it! But something was eating at me inside and I couldn’t figure out what it was. I would go through the motions of work but I was uninterested and my so called path to success was becoming increasingly less exciting.
And then the day came that changed my life forever.
I was talking with one of my good friends (and mentor) during lunch, when he suddenly turned to me and asked “If I told you that this was the last year of your life, what would you do differently?” I was completely unprepared.
I spent the rest of that week hardly able to sleep as I thought about which direction I needed to go with my life. Is this what I want my life to be about? I follow someone else’s definition of success only to be disappointed in the end? Am I truly happy? Did I even know what I wanted out of life? These questions poured over me in waves and for the first time in my life I felt lost. I had just spent the majority of my life following what my teachers, coaches, bosses, and friends had told me was the path to success. The only thing was, it wasn’t the path for me.
I decided that day that I was going to pour everything I had into finding and following my own purpose.
Today, I am proud to say that I have been blessed to have been able to interview and spend time over the past decade with some of the most influential people from all walks of life. From these people, as well as many others I meet along the way, I keep learning new things every day and am able to expand my own thoughts about what it means to live your life dedicated to the life you were meant to have.
This brings me to you.
