Grant Cardone: How to find your purpose

See also

How important is purpose? Is there a connection between burnout and one's connection to their purpose? Recently, Grant Cardone did an interview where he was asked about burnout. Grant's response was he doesn't believe in burnout. Grant believes we lose focus on our purpose. And this led Grant to think about why so many people are not excited about what they are doing everyday.

When people find themselves not excited or feeling burnt out, it is more about a loss of their sense of purpose. Unfortunately, for many, they are unaware even of what their purpose is. The truth is most people do not have their own purpose.

Grant reads, "you and your results in life are basically the result of the effects of your surroundings. Most people do not have their own purpose, most people have adopted another persons purposes."

People's parents decide for their kids what their purpose it, what they should be when they grow up, what they will become. Teachers and educators and the system all lay out how it "should be." What's a good job, what's an acceptable career choice. Most people have adopted another some other person's purpose and ideals and they don't even know it.

What Grant does here is challenge people the world over to redefine their purpose. What gets you excited? What does the word purpose even mean?

pur┬Ěpose
noun
1. the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.
"the purpose of the meeting is to appoint a trustee"
synonyms: motive, motivation, grounds, cause, occasion, reason, point, basis, justification

Questions to answer to identify purpose:

  • What is your purpose?
  • What is the cause for you getting up every morning?
  • What are the grounds by which you get up and get energized?
  • What is your motive and motivation each day?
  • What drives you?
  • What drives your objective in life and at work?
  • What are you trying to accomplish?
  • What's your intention?
  • What's your point?
  • What is your reason?
  • What is your aim in life?
  • What do you want to accomplish?

When one finds out that reason, that objective that one has in life, people will be excited everyday. Its called purpose. Most people don't have it most people don't have their own purpose, they basically adopted someone else's ideas.

Grant says, "Have your own purpose, give life to your own purpose, create your own purpose, clarify your own purpose, so you can be on fire everyday."
