TO SAY THAT LIFE is meaningless is a farce. You might choose to live a meaningless life, but existence in itself is an absolutely necessary adventure. You are here for a reason. If you haven’t been able to figure out what it is, then you need to search for it relentlessly. If you have no other quest in life, then make this one yours. Find out why you were put here in the first place.
Do you even know who you are and what you are capable of? Doubtful, if you had to pick up a copy of this book.

Discovering who you are can help to define your purpose in this world. I have worked a wide variety of jobs throughout my life and at every one that I have had, there is always at least one person who is completely miserable at their task. They show up for work and they do enough of their job to get by and keep their employment, but they absolutely hate what they are doing. The saddest part about this scenario is that they don’t know of any other job to do that would make them any happier. They don’t know what it is they want to do because they don’t understand what it is they are capable of doing. They don’t know enough about themselves to understand their strengths, talents, abilities or even weaknesses. They don’t know who they truly are and therefore they can not comprehend their greatness. Even that word- “greatness” – is a foreign concept in their mind. Taking the time to discover yourself, to do soul searching and inner work is not some crazy eastern philosophy. It is necessary tool towards finding the happiness and fulfillment of any ordinary life.
