I sat across from a man in a NYC subway who stood out from everyone else. It wasn't how he was dressed, what he was saying or doing that caught my attention. This man was sad. Very sad.

Awakening your purpose takes the same practice and patience as developing any new habit. Here's how to start today:

Chasing Perfection

Ever since I can remember, I have strived to be the perfect man. A destructive penchant, it has often made me feel simply unworthy and left me unfulfilled, as I felt ingenuine and hollow. Oddly, only recently have I given the concept of perfection its deserved reflection.

Would you say your life is great? I've often heard people make this statement. Many times followed up by, "As long as those closest to me are happy, my life will continue to be great." For many years I thought it was one of the most selfless things a person could say

Recently, I've felt a tinge of jealousy watching those who have careers, relationships, or lives that fill them up -- emotionally, mentally, and spiritually; however, I had naively put myself in that group for years. I felt sympathy for those who didn't have the "picture perfect" life because the grass was beautifully green and manicured on my side.
