The other day, I was watching one of my favorite shows (Shark Tank) with my lovely wife. Related: Escape Your Dead-End Job In 3 Steps A couple of guys made their pitch to the Sharks (seeking an investment for their business), and then they were asked a question that led to one of them breaking down completely and crying in front of the sharks. The question was simple: “Why did you start your business and why are you here?” It turns out that he started the business because it’s his biggest dream. His passion. The #1 thing he absolutely had to do in life. And he was there, seeking an investment and support from the sharks, so that he could prove to his fiance’s parents that he was good enough for her, and so that she would be able to leave Japan and come marry him in the U.S.A. What a powerful reason for making those career choices, isn’t it!? People do all kinds of crazy things for loved ones… and you know what the billionaire Shark, Mark Cuban, said to this young man? He said that the one common factor between all the people he’s seen succeed is that they have a powerful reason, beyond themselves, for doing what they’re doing. So, if you feel a lack of purpose in your life, if you’re bored at work and only in it for the paycheck and the weekends, then I want to help inspire you to connect with YOUR purpose, and show you how you can start turning your career around today - so that you can love the work you do… Earn the income you deserve… And contribute to something that matters.
