The Power of Purpose | Steve Taylor | TEDxSquareMile



Published on Feb 2, 2015
This inspirational talk explores the power of purpose in our life. The reason that purpose is crucial to our lives is because it brings us motivation, orientation, resilience and positivity. Without purpose, it’s easy for us to feel adrift and disoriented in our lives. We become more vulnerable to boredom, anxiety and depression. But a strong sense of purpose has a powerful positive effect. We feel part of something bigger than ourselves, more energetic and optimistic, and there’s a background reason for everything we do. This sense is essential for our psychological health. Whether your purpose of life is for personal accumulative, altruistic or self-development, only when you possess deep authentic sense of purpose, will you own the most productive and meaningful life!

Steve is a senior lecturer in psychology at Leeds Beckett University, and author of several best-selling books on psychology and spirituality, including Waking From Sleep View Here and Back to Sanity View Here

He’s a researcher in Transpersonal Psychology and Positive Psychology.
