NEW EDITION, REVISED AND UPDATED

We all want to find our purpose—our reason for getting up in the morning. Purpose is fundamental to human life. It is what makes us human. Purpose gives us the will not just to live but to live long and well. The good news is, purpose isn’t a grand concept reserved for a gifted few but something each one of us already possesses, needing only to be uncovered.

Twenty-five years after the publication of the first edition, legendary personal coach Richard Leider has completely rethought and revamped his bestselling classic on realizing what truly makes your life worth living. Revised, expanded, and updated throughout, the second edition features new chapters, new stories, and new tools and resources.

Purpose, Leider explains, is nothing more or less than a mindset. It is a choice you make every day to bring who you are at your core to whatever you are doing. Citing a wealth of new research proving that purpose is key to longevity, Leider details a graceful, practical, and ultimately spiritual process for making your unique purpose central to your life. This revitalized guide will help you find your reason to get up in the morning and integrate it into everything you do.

Richard Leider's second edition of The Power of Purpose, published in May 2010, is an essential read for anyone seeking to discover or clarify their life's purpose. In true introspective style, Richard gives us many thought-provoking questions to contemplate. I read the entire book, noting the questions that were resonating and challenging, and then went back, reflecting on the questions I had identified. The Power of Purpose is relevant for any age but this book served my own interest in purposeful aging, expanding and deepening the conversations we have with ourselves and with others. As Richard says, purpose is a gift, and this book is truly a gift to anyone seeking to find meaning in their work and in their lives.

There needs to be a breakthrough, someone in the vangard, who can analyze society in new ways and help us find ourselves in the chaos of an emergent global village. Someone like Freud in "Love and Work" or Cleaver in "Soul on Ice". This book is a rehash of the last 30 years of guided imagery. A real disppointment.
