I’ve observed in my life and the lives of others that our effort to live with purpose and meaning often creates disillusions. False expectations.
My primary work is to come alongside individuals to help them discover and affirm just who they are; to understand and embrace their one-of-a-kind, true self; to identify and live out a sense of personal purpose. And in doing so, there is a risk that I can over-promise and under-deliver.
Whether with me or any other process, it’s a false expectation to think that the pursuit of purpose…
produces the perfect job description for which one was born to fulfill;
will land him or her in the next right role;
generates absolute knowing about what to do.
It’s delusional. And therefore, disappointing.
