Wisdom from Chris Cade

My purpose is to use insight, compassion, and the rapid embodiment of wisdom to enable millions of people to experience inner peace, joy, and abundance.

What’s yours?

If you can’t answer in a single sentence, now is the time to get clear about exactly why you’re on this planet. Frequently we go through life unsure, or even worse, unaware of our purpose. Yes, we have hunches. Rarely though, do we clarify our purpose so that it can be communicated in a single statement.

This is what I encourage you to do.

Clearly defining your purpose makes all the difference. You can call upon it anytime to help you navigate life’s terrain. When you feel lost, it guides you through those challenges. When you feel joyful, it reinforces your abundant life. At work, with friends and family, or conversing with a stranger, there is no greater fulfillment than being guided on purpose. It keeps you focused on what is most important.

Here are four steps to clarify yours:

(1) Inventory your best qualities.

Knowing your purpose begins with knowing yourself. Nobody has the exact same qualities and experiences as you. Get clear on your gifts and you’ll be closer to knowing your purpose….Continue reading at

Thank you for commenting and sharing your insight and perspective. I agree it's invaluable to understand where our strengths and weaknesses / challenges are.

And at the same time, when it comes specifically to defining and following our purpose, my experience (and observation of others) has been that identifying our weaknesses isn't really necessary at this stage of the process.

When we are aligned with our purpose and committed to it, then whatever weaknesses we have will naturally be overcome through various means. Some examples include us identifying them and working with them, perhaps hiring help to handle those kinds of things that are difficult for us or distract us from our purpose, or watching as our direction unfolds in a way such that the weaknesses aren't applicable to fulfilling our specific purpose.

You do also bring up an important point about the nature of success. Many people focus on developing their weaknesses while not strengthening their strengths. However, when we are aligned with our strengths and develop them fully, then we can leverage them and use that energy and experience to develop any weaknesses we may feel would be beneficial to strengthen.
