Your Questions

It can be confusing, even frustrating if you do not feel that the life that lies before you is the one you wish to live.

When you see your peers, apparently happy living the “expected” life, it is easy to question your self-doubts and feel alone in questioning whether your life is everything it could be.

But you are not alone. There are many others like you, who are in some kind of a transition, and are questioning their sense of self and future direction. Below are some examples of the questions being asked.

  • Is this all there is to my life? Is there something next, an experience that is more satisfying than what I’m doing now?
  • Should I be feeling more fulfilled than I am now? My peers seem happy doing the same thing…is it strange that I’m not?
  • Why can’t I find exactly what it is that will make me happy? How will I ever get there?
  • Why am I having trouble articulating how I feel about a major life change, like retirement…selling my business…having my kids move out?

If you’ve found yourself pondering these things, Shaping Purpose can help you explore, identify, plan and achieve your best life.
