So what is "purpose?"

Purpose can be described as a long-term big picture goal or passion, something that you want to do or be someday that's very meaningful to you. You might think of it as similar to a life dream that you have.

People

Mentors and role models provide feedback, support, and guidance.

Propensity

People who have a clear understanding of their strengths are able to identify a purpose that aligns with their abilities.

Passion

Purpose is driven by an enthusiastic and unabated interest in a goal or idea.

prosocial benefits

Meaningful causes that go beyond the self facilitate a strong sense of purpose.
