About Living a Purpose Driven Life:

We all intuitively grasp, based on our own experiences, that we're happiest when we have a strong purpose and the vitality to pursue this purpose. Recent groundbreaking science also tells us that a strong sense of purpose is associated with increased willpower, physical and mental resilience, and a revitalized sense of happiness and well-being.
