Statistics show that only 8% of people achieve the goals they have set for themselves. Even those who actively pursue their goals often find themselves struggling with disappointment and dissatisfaction.
Dr. Deb Gorton, the author of the book “Embracing Uncomfortable: Facing your fears while pursuing your purpose” believes that it happens because we often confuse our goals with our life’s purpose.
In this episode we talk about how embracing uncomfortable helps us not only discover our authentic selves and our core values, but also identify the purpose that was intended for us by God. We discuss what God-defined purpose is and is not, the importance of our habits, the dangers hidden in expectations and some practical ways of discovering our purpose.
