17: Richard Leider | Finding Your Purpose

“Why do you get up in the morning?” A simple, yet complicated question that many of us struggle to answer, as we try to understand our life’s purpose – and its impact on our work and careers.

My guest, Richard Leider, has pioneered the way we answer that question. Widely viewed as a pioneer of the global purpose movement, his PBS Special – The Power of Purpose– has been viewed by millions of people across the U.S. Richard is ranked by Forbes as one of the “Top 5” most respected coaches in his field. He has written eleven books, including three best sellers, which have sold over one million copies and have been translated into 20 languages. Repacking Your Bags and The Power of Purpose are considered classics in the field of personal growth and development.

In this episode, Richard clears up some common misconceptions about what purpose means, provides specific tools and action steps we can all take to define our own unique purpose, and shares why purpose is fundamental to health, happiness, and longevity.
