Thoughts on Having a Life Purpose & What To Do When You Feel Like You Don’t Have One

Today’s minisode I’m sharing my thoughts on having a life purpose and what to do when you feel like you don’t have one.

I feel like in today’s society, it’s pushed on us to figure out our “life’s purpose” otherwise we’re not living up to our potential. The fact is, sometimes you’re going through a time in your life when it’s hard to know what your exact “purpose” is and that’s totally okay!

Tune in to hear my thoughts on the matter. I’d love to hear your thoughts too. Feel free to hit me up on Twitter or Instagram.

During this minisode, you’ll learn a few ways in how you can become more persistent in your life — and watch it pay off.
