In The Profitable Power of Purpose, Ian Percy says “The national epidemic is that people look for ‘jobs’ not for ‘purpose’. We should stop measuring the ‘job-less rate’ and start measuring the ‘purpose-less rate.’”

Chasing a paycheck or a stock price doesn't really inspire anyone long term. Following your life’s purpose not only inspires you to daily action, but it gets you out of yourself. As you make the journey from self-consciousness to cosmic consciousness, your purpose natural moves toward the higher realms. As this happens, your ego will naturally drive you to manifest this in the physical realm. And that’s when things really get fun!
