Success can be looked at in different ways from different points in your life. As a child, it was pleasing one's parents; in high school, it may have been about academic achievement and popularity; as a working adult, success is often represented by earning a good salary and the respect of others. But what about the years after initial goals have been pursued? What constitutes success then? Leisure or legacy? For more and more people, it's about making things better and about improving the world-large or small-in a lasting way. It's about changing the community, the nation, the political landscape, and the environment. "A New Purpose" focuses on why readers should commit to having a lasting impact on the world and how they can do it. Ken Dychtwald addresses finances, opportunities, and realities of life, and includes inspiring stories of people who have made a difference while providing the resources to enable the reader to do the same. Men and women will identify their strengths, become inspired, and find themselves galvanised into action.
