Part One: Purpose Revealed
Part One is an exploration into what purpose actually is. It’s sole goal is to inspire you with what your life could look like if you were more deeply connected to your purpose.
You’ll explore the definition of purpose in the Chapter 2, “What is Purpose?,” examining every aspect of your purpose and how your purpose actually works in your life in Chapter 3: “How Does Purpose Work?”
In the chapters that follow, you’ll cultivate an understanding of the scientific benefits and felt experience of having your health, career, love life and public life driven by your purpose: “The Science of Purpose” Chapters (4, 5, 6 and 7).
In Chapter 8: "Your Path to Purpose" and Chapter 9: “The Five Ecstasies of Purpose" you'll get a feel for the journey itself, a roadmap of what to expect as you discover and embody your higher purpose.

Part Two: Your Purpose
Part Two contains instructions to access a powerful online purpose discovery course, the Global Purpose Expedition.
The GPE is a proven path to awaken your purpose in a very short period of time. It includes numerous exercises that empower you to know your purpose and blast through obstacles to living it, so as to make purpose your new normal and put it into practice in the world. These exercises are the most effective purpose discovery exercises I have encountered.
In chapters 11, 12 and 13, you'll then explore how to embody your purpose, move it into your career and lead with it.

Part Three: Humanity's Purpose
Part Three calls you to more fully live your higher purpose in the world and serve the purpose of the whole. To do this we must do a deep dive into the context of your life’s purpose. We’ll begin with an exploration of the “Purpose of the Cosmos” and the “Purpose of Humanity”, connecting you to a broad identity and scope that includes and connects your life, health, family, career, country, species and planet.
This will empower you to engage head on with world as it is and awaken your purpose-driven leadership. You'll also discover where we are starting from in “Humanity's Midlife Crisis”.

We’ll move through Part Four with the question, “What would it look like if everyone was committed to living their life’s purpose at every level of human cooperation, from romance to family to community to company to nation to species and planet?”
