Are you struggling to find more purpose and clarity in your life? Do you want to feel more passion but don't know where to start. I felt that way too, several years ago I was suffering from depression and in a corporate job that was suffocating my soul.

At the time I felt stuck and trapped by my life circumstances, until I started looking for inspiration. I looked to mentors, authors and teachers who seemed to live their life with joy and great passion.

As an entrepreneur it can be isolating and we can feel like we aren't doing enough to build our business. But looking to those who have found a way to thrive can inspire us all.

It worked for me, I aligned myself with their teachings and soon enough I started to feel more passionate and discovered my life purpose. If you want to live a life with more meaning check out these inspiring quotes from people who have discovered their life purpose and our living it daily.
