You will not get very far in life without knowing your life mission. Can yours be stated in a sentence or two? A good way to begin formulating one is with some questions. What is your passion? What have you achieved? What have you done uncommonly well? How are you wired? Where do you belong? What are the "shoulds" that have trailed you during your first half of life? These and other questions like them will direct you toward the self your heart longs for; they will help you discover the task for which you were especially made.
