Most I spoke with didn’t enjoy their jobs, didn’t feel passionate, and didn’t associate it with their purpose in life. Now they had kids, debt, and other obligations and significant professional changes seemed nearly impossible.

Why is living with a purpose so important, after all?

These findings suggest that a purpose in life increases lifespan, resilience, DNA repair, antibody production, sleep and diet improvement, and income. Living with purpose also decreases the likelihood of depression, job burnout, cognitive conflict, fear response, stroke, heart attack, and Alzheimer’s Disease.

Living with purpose gives us a stronger sense of fulfillment, meaning, and inspiration in life. It also means stronger perseverance and lower chances of giving up during the toughest times.
