For many of us, life seems like a puzzle with missing pieces. We form plans and change them; we choose one path then another, trying to find the right mate and career, hoping that we’ve made the right decision and that it will all work out. At some point, we ask ourselves the central question: What is the purpose of my life?

Few writers approach the topic of life purpose with the clarity of Dan Millman, whose prior book, The Life You Were Born to Live, reached more than a million readers worldwide. In The Four Purposes of Life, Millman distills decades of exploration and experience into a concise map of what we’re here to accomplish on our life’s journey.

This book is for anyone seeking deeper insight into themselves and their lives, but especially for those at a crossroads, facing a challenge or change, when past approaches no longer apply.

These four purposes — learning life’s lessons; finding your career and calling; discovering your life path; and attending to this arising moment — will bring your life into sharper focus by revealing:

• the value of everyday challenges
• how to make wiser decisions
• your twelve required courses in the school of life
• a mysterious system that clarifies your hidden calling
• keys to mastering the most important purpose of all

The Four Purposes of Life can generate a quantum leap in self-knowledge, insight, and wisdom. The seeds planted will bear fruit for years to come.
