A life with purpose

I was talking with a man some years ago who spent a great deal of his time on the road. He held a regional sales position and traveled from city to city establishing new clients. His products provided a needed service and he did good, honest work. Yet, even so, he was struggling to find a deeper sense of meaning or purpose. Somehow his life just seemed to be drifting by. The frustration had led him several times into extended bouts of heavy drinking, which only heightened the emptiness he felt.

Those kinds of feelings aren't uncommon. Many feel that they don't have much of a center or focus, and that they're just barely getting by from day to day. People want to know that who they are and what they do are valued, that what they accomplish actually makes a difference in the world, that they have a clear purpose and direction in their lives.
