You’ve been taught a lie about your purpose.
In helping leaders be valued everywhere they want to be, I’ve seen one lie that keeps coming up. We’ve all been taught that our purpose is what we do. But the truth is, your purpose is why you’re here. Your purpose is why you’re here, not what you do.
What you do must align with why you’re here and fulfill your purpose if you want to be valued as a leader, but your purpose is not what you do, it is why you’re here.
Your value as a leader comes from you fulfilling your purpose everywhere you are. At home, work, in your community, country and our world. You are valued as a leader because you fulfill your purpose in what you do. What you do must come out of you fulfilling your purpose or you will be devalued.
Your purpose is a why not a what.
