On April 11, I shared Christanne’s story of articulating her purpose statement: I exist to serve by Extending Grace. She came by the office to visit today. It was so much fun to listen to her share how her purpose statement is penetrating her soul and everyday experience.
Today, I offered an On-Purpose® Person training to a select few. When I’m trying something new, I’ll often pull together a beta group. Christianne was a participant. She’s a bright young woman who is a writer and grad student. There is something about talking about one’s purpose and being all clinical about it. It is another thing to experience it.
Toward the end of the day, I was sharing at story of a speaking engagement I had in St. George, Utah years ago. After signing books for a couple of hours, the last person in the long line was a young woman who was well overweight. With tears in her eyes she joyfully declared, "I know my purpose in life. It is to lose weight."
