Show Notes

“Purpose” is defined as “the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.” Many of us spend lifetimes in the agonizing and sometimes elusive pursuit of purpose. We seek it in our jobs, personal lives, goals, and ambitions.

But, is trying to find our purpose all it’s really cracked up to be? Is it a ‘missing link’ that can be found?

In this week’s episode, Lola breaks the myth around purpose by reminding us that sourcing a sense of belonging from what we do, and not from who we really are, is a trap. and that the real key to purpose lies in the alternative definition — “a person’s sense of resolve or determination” (supported by resilience) — is the key.

If you feel like you’re stuck in an endless loop of trying to derive meaning from everyday drudgery that may be bordering on madness, this episode offers you a way out. You’ll discover how to build resilience and arm yourself with fortitude and awareness to ensure that you always stay in tune with who you really are, and what your true purpose is!
