T- Thoughts
“People believe that all you have to do is find the thing—that one bloody thing!—that you are "meant” to do, and suddenly, everything will click into place. You’ll do it until the day you die and always feel fulfilled and happy and prance with unicorns and rainbows while making a million dollars in your pajamas.
But we just need that one thing—if only we knew what we were meant to do, then everything would fall into place!
And while it’s possible to brainstorm some ideas to help one get started, finding meaning and purpose is not a five-day spa retreat. It’s a hike through mud and crap with golf-ball-sized hail pelting you in the face.  And you have to love it. You really have to love it.“ - Mark Manson
People I talk with always are startled and a little jealous about how much I love what I do every day. They make comments like "you’re so lucky you found your life purpose. ”
True, I am lucky and if you’re reading this weekly digest you’re lucky too!
What is hard to swallow is the price we have to pay for that meaning and purpose in our lives.
In fact, striving to create anything in our lives is a contract to be unhappy until we achieve that thing we want.
So finding purpose and being happy are really too different skill sets!
Nevertheless, finding your purpose is really just a daily struggle of dealing with the everyday realities of life. Taking care of yourself and others, getting crystal clear on your most treasured values in life like love, friendship, security, health, education, and peace of mind.
When I “retired” from my business at around 40 and was working only a few hours a week I was lost. I needed a new “purpose”. I needed something else to help me find meaning. It wasn’t until I got a random phone call while vacationing in San Jose, CA that I began The Land Geek training to help others.
I’m sure in the next few years my purpose will evolve and I’ll look for more challenges and ways to provide more value in different areas of people’s lives.
If you’re struggling with finding your purpose in life take a deep breath and know that it’s not easy. In fact, if it were easy it would lose all of the meaning and joy of the discovery for you!
Try to enjoy the process and understand it’s not one thing or event that will solve this lifelong problem. It really is a never-ending process that continually evolves as you grow as a person and entrepreneur.
“The path to our destination is not always a straight one. We go down the wrong road, we get lost, we turn back. Maybe it doesn’t matter which road we embark on. Maybe what matters is that we embark.” – Barbara Hall

Episode Notes
Joining Mark this week are:
  • Erik Peterson

Listen in as they go around the table and share with us how they have prepared or planned for the inevitable time in their lives. Mark also gives advice on how to get started with the preparation process.
Mark: When you have a baby, one of the first things you should do is give the baby a Gmail account (example: [email protected]), and then every week, send them a cute video of them. When they turn 18, you give them the password and username to their email, and they can go back and see how they’ve actually grown up.
Teria: With WeCroak, I offset the death messages with “I am” statements using the “I am” daily affirmations app.
