Living life on purpose…

Categories:  Business Coaching, Being on purpose

I’ve just finished Andre Agassi’s autobiography ‘Open’.  What a fascinating, interesting and inspiring read.  Agassi gives a frank account of his life in tennis from his earliest memories of having his father place a tennis racket in his hands as a very small child, to eventually finding his purpose for playing.  Agassi takes the reader on his journey of self discovery.

How can someone be good at something they hate?

‘I hate tennis’ – privately throughout his competitive career Agassi hated the game he excelled at, but publicly he deceived us all and told us what he thought we wanted to hear.

Only in the twilight of his competitive career did he start to find his true purpose, a real reason for playing and winning.

As I read this book I was once again reminded how important being purposeful is in affecting your drive, motivation and ultimate success.

So my questions to you are:

Do you know your purpose?

Are you living life on purpose?

Perhaps it’s time you did…

Go make things happen…
