The 4 Key Questions that Will Unlock Your Destiny

 

This week’s Thriving on Purpose Podcast Episode is going to be about this most important question: How to Find Your Purpose.

 

Of course, with a name like Thriving on Purpose, this was not only inevitable but also necessary for us to address.

 

Many, many entrepreneurs, even many of whom are very successful often ask this very question…

 

How do I find my purpose?

Sometimes, it shocks us. Why? Because the question may come from those who seem to have it all together. We don’t usually hear this question from the aimless and jobless, but rather from those who are already very successful in one lane or another; hence the importance it has for serious entrepreneurs.

 

As we will explore together, there are four simple questions you can ask yourself that have the potential to lead you into your destiny.

 

These questions (or steps if you prefer) have been talked about, written about, even philosophized about. The greatest thought-leaders on the planet have addressed how to find your purpose time and again; and these four questions are almost always at the center of the discussion.

 

Those who dared to ask themselves those questions, and answered them honestly, are those who are Thriving on Purpose. It is our hope that you will do the same after this important episode.

 

Remember, you can only reach the T.O.P. of the mountain God has set before you if you are Thriving on Purpose!

 

In this Episode You Will:

♦ Learn what your purpose isn’t, as we debunk some myths concerning Christians and Purpose.

♦ Understand the crucial difference between your skills and your gifts.

♦ Learn how to find your ‘Sweet Spot’.

♦ Ask yourself Four Key Questions that will unlock your destiny!
