It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.

Are You Ready to Discover Your Soul Purpose?

  • Do you have moments when you feel disconnected from your true purpose?
  • Do you sometimes wonder exactly what your purpose in life is all about?

We’ve all had that nagging feeling when you know it’s time to make a change and take a new direction in your life. You may have a vague sense of what your true path might look like. But if you have no clue at all, that’s okay. Just follow your intuition.

As young children, we tend to express our true nature and are easily drawn to what we feel is intrinsically right for us. But as we grow up, life circumstances and expectations of well-meaning loved ones and society as a whole steer us to what is considered more practical and acceptable. No wonder we feel such a sense of disconnection and start questioning our life direction!

How To Find Your Purpose

What is my purpose in life?

I get asked this question all the time at my live events and during interviews.

There’s often a myth that your life purpose is something that you need to figure out and find up front. That unless you are crystal clear you can’t live it.

But what if you didn’t need to know everything about your life’s purpose in order to begin?

Often when we focus so much on trying figure out all the details of our life purpose we can end up waiting and holding back our gifts.

If you want to live your purpose then stop waiting.

Simply begin by going in the direction that moves you most deeply.

Take a step.

When you take a step, each step will reveal to you the next step. In a sense your purpose will find you in the process.

You don’t need to know the entire map of where you are going to get to where you are meant to be.

You may not be able to see all the steps on the journey from where you are today. It’s OK.

But you do need to start.

Trust that you will be guided every step of the way.

So if you aren’t sure which direction to go in or what your life’s purpose is, begin by asking yourself these 4 questions:

What Gives You Meaning in Your Life?

When we align our thoughts, emotions, and actions with the highest part of ourselves, we are filled with enthusiasm, purpose, and meaning. Life is rich and full.
—Gary Zukav



Contributing to the new humanity gives me meaning beyond anything I could have possibly imagined. I write books, give events, and create programs to teach about creating authentic power—aligning the personality with the soul so that we can transform ourselves with our own wills instead of trying to change others.

I am filled with meaning when I am giving a gift to Life. Sometimes when a chapter that I am writing comes to an end, or I reread a chapter that I have written, I cry without being able to stop because I am so grateful to be allowed to write these words and share these thoughts.

Birds Are Oblivious


BIRDS ARE OBLIVIOUS
©1-18-21 Will Hale – Tadpole Parade

Birds are oblivious
They just do what birds do
With no regard
For the turmoils
Of the human condition

It’s not that birds
Don’t care
They just have
Clear priorities

To be Birds.
To live the life they have

We do not know
If birds have a purpose
Beyond survival
Maybe joy is natural
To live in harmony
With the immediate world
To know they are part
Of everything natural
Not in conflict with life

Humans may have never lost
Their innocence
We can only wonder
Will humans ever be like birds
And just be human

We can only grow into
and be what is
a Natural Human

Give Up Your “Hopium” and Get into Action

So… we are now officially three weeks into a New Year – how’s it going so far?

Are you making progress on fulfilling your heart’s desire or did you get sidetracked?

Here’s a few super easy things to do that will keep you on track:

1. Write it down! Make it simple: “Before the end of 2021 I commit to myself to accomplish (or substitute be, do, or have ) _____________________.”

2. I commit to doing ___ things each day towards accomplishing this.
(I find that doing 5 little things every day is doable and works best for me)

3. I promise to enroll someone to be my accountability partner (research shows if you do this you have a 90% better chance of being successful!)

Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: After the War

How can I be a bridge
to help you cross what
you need to cross?

This is finally all I aspire to.
To reach across the divide
because I have been so divided.

To pick up what is broken
because I have done the breaking.

To ask for guidance because I
too have been so stubborn.

One Soul At A Time

I've Been Thinking...

Over the last week, I wrote this essay several different times in several different ways. None of them felt quite right.

One essay felt too angry. Another felt too pollyannaish. One felt simplistic at a time when the world feels anything but. I’ve felt so many different emotions lately that it’s been hard to know what to think. At times I’ve felt like I’m living on an upside-down emotional rollercoaster as I watch the news unfold.

Then along came my youngest son who asked me to step away from the news and watch the new Pixar movie Soul with him. He and I watch all the Pixar films together. I even used to take him out of school to go to the theater when one came out, so of course I said sure. 

In hindsight, it felt like it was exactly the film I needed to see this week as I watched Americans debate the heart and soul of our country, while also preparing to inaugurate a man who ran on a platform to repair the soul of our nation.

Five Fantasies That Keep Us Apart

When a society is deeply divided, a paradox is in force. On the one hand, people cry out for unity, while on the other hand, they keep on doing the very things that incite division. We are seeing this paradox grow stronger year by year in politics, but at bottom what we’re facing is a broken relationship. Society is a huge bundle of relationships, nothing more.

To stop being trapped in a paradox, you need a little practical psychology. The first step when a relationship falters, if you consider the situation psychologically, is to stop doing more of what didn’t work in the first place. The same holds true in a divided society.

As long as both sides engage in futile behavior, ending the divide between them isn’t going to happen. At a certain point a futile tactic turns into a fantasy. Here I’d define fantasy as a belief that runs contrary to reality. If you confront the realities of a situation but continue to ignore them, you are indulging in a fantasy.

Here are five fantasies that surround us right now. I’ll couch them in terms of a broken relationship.

Breathing Peace, Breathing Hope

A lot of people have felt they couldn’t breathe.”—Van Jones

Last November, when a new President and Vice President were elected in the U.S., many of us cried tears of relief. We felt we could breathe again, even if just for a moment. Not that the huge problems that face this country had been solved, but lighter, more compassionate voices were speaking at the national level. Possibility was appearing once again, where impossibility had ruled. Hope was arising within us, and the distant dream of a peaceful resolution of divisions seemed somehow closer. Now, in the wake of last week’s violent break-in at the Capitol building in Washington, it is even more important to hold onto that dream and to move forward in peace.

Growing Seeds of Infinite Potential

"Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, No one can count the apples in a seed."


Contemplating these words inspire me to not underestimate the potential of the coming year. We live in a world of infinite potential. Small actions with a sense of natural timing will grow fruitful results.

GOOD SEED
©1-18-13 Will Hale – Tadpole Parade

A new day dawns tomorrow
Once a seed is planted
It is up to God to make it grow

I have watered, fertilized
and trust the sun will rise

Planted but not forgotten
Left alone but not neglected
The process of life is out of my hands
Surrender is not giving up
It is letting go of control

Like the seed in the ground
It is my time to rest.
The tilling, planting, and praying
Is done
I can trust the spark of creation
To do what love does, Grow

A Blessed 2021: A New Year of Connecting with Your Soul!

It’s going to be very strange when we turn on our TVs on New Year’s Eve to watch the ball drop at Times Square. For the first time in 114 years, the streets of New York City will be empty. But as strange as that may seem—we still have good reason to celebrate!

Bottom line:

  • We survived 2020.
  • We made it this far!
  • We pulled together, and tapped into resources we didn’t even think we had and above all, we moved forward.
  • We learned how to do our jobs, teach our kids and order our essentials online.
  • We figured out ways to maintain our fortitude and stay connected to our lives and our loved ones, even when wearing masks and keeping our distance.

I fully appreciate that not everyone was so fortunate and my heart and prayers go out to all those who have lost someone to Covid-19.

How to Practice Persistence and Achieve More Success

Over the years, I’ve spent some time learning how to practice persistence. Some of this has come with hard life lessons, and other valuable insights I’ve learned by watching the inspirational journeys of others.

The power of persistence is so important for achieving success in all aspects of our lives, so I want to make sure I share it with you.

One of my favorite quotes comes from Calvin Coolidge, who once said:

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”

This quote is so powerful because it’s true. It doesn’t matter how much money you were born into, or how smart or talented you are. It doesn’t even matter how ambitious you are.

If you don’t have the necessary willpower and drive to keep moving forward to your goals no matter what roadblocks appear on your path, you will never unlock your true capacity for success.

So today I’d like to talk to you about the importance of persistence, and how your ability to persevere in the face of any obstacle is the key to your success in life.

Chasing Perfection vs. Finding Happiness

Chasing perfection reminds me of a dog chasing his tale — you get dizzyingly exhausted trying to make it happen, but it’s always just out of reach. And if you do end up catching it, was it really worth it after all?

It’s easy to get caught up in chasing perfection, or the idea of a “perfect” life. It comes with the perfect income, the perfect house, the perfect family, the perfect body, and whatever “perfect” seems to be. But in reality, those who spend all their time and energy trying to make sure their lives are perfect are usually the unhappiest people I know.

So today I want to talk to you about the difference between chasing perfection and achieving happiness — how to create a life that truly brings you joy and fulfillment.

Dare to Ask for What You Want

My first mentor, W. Clement Stone, the author of “The Success System That Never Fails,” taught me many things, but one of the most important being able to ask for what you want.

He would repeatedly remind me, “If there is something to gain by asking and nothing to lose by asking, by all means ask.” This one principle has reaped great rewards in my life, and it can do the same for you.

That’s why today, I want to discuss the importance of asking for what you want in order to reach your full potential.

How to Ask For What You Want

Unfortunately, many of us are not great at asking for what we want. For any number of reasons stemming from childhood conditioning to traumatic rejections later in life, we have become afraid of the word “no.”

To be successful, you have to be willing to ask and keep asking for what you want until you get a “yes.”

Rejection is just part of the journey to finally getting to a “yes.” And it only takes one “yes” to radically change your life forever.

The Healing Power of the Feminine

"When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily."


I have an emotional response to the following words that I don’t think is unique: loving, peaceful, forgiving, warm, tolerant, harmonious, heartfelt. To me, these words all have feminine overtones.  The same is true of the “A words” that are in circulation: appreciation, affection, acceptance, and allowing. If you are distressed by the deep divisions in society, these words seem to describe what has been lost.  They also outline a path to healing.

Does the feminine have a chance right now? Within every person resides two polarities, the masculine and the feminine. When both are free to express themselves, the foundation is laid for living in harmony, balance, and fulfilment. This need for wholeness is known to modern psychology as well as ancient spiritual wisdom. When we experience one polarity overshadowing the other, disharmony, imbalance, and inequality prevails.

How To Be A Leader

“True leadership begins at the foundational level when you decide to live your life with true integrity, true honesty, whether anyone is watching or not.

No matter who we are, whether you're a mother, CEO, president or politician, we are all leaders. There is a leader inside of you, but you must awaken it. In this episode, I share four powerful keys that will help you become a more powerful, effective, visionary and find the true leader that lives within you.

The Purpose Of Your Life

I don’t know about you, but at some point, and it’s taken me 42 years, you finally have to get to a point where you recognize that being yourself is where it’s at. In every area of life and living, when you try to live up to other people’s expectations or other people’s requirements, you start to suffer. 

If you have to compromise who you are to be in your relationship, then it’s time to declare peace and step away. It’s time to no longer perpetuate pretense, or play roles or in some way edit who you are. If this is true at work, and you are getting hit with the “if only, blah, blah, blah, you could, blah, blah blah,” it’s time to recognize that this is a dynamic where you’re not being valued for yourself, where you’re not allowed to bring the totality of your being into full expression – the purpose of your life.

Who's Really In Charge?

The other day, I woke up early and took my coffee out to our deck where I could just sit in silence with my dogs, letting emotions and thoughts wash over me. Lately, I’ve found myself pulled in different directions at once, and the tension has left me a bit (okay, a lot!) overwhelmed at times with so much going on around us. 

I see the challenges of the larger world we live in — the pain, the struggles, the imperfections — and part of me gets sucked into grief and sadness. But at the same time, I see the beauty that surrounds us: People standing up for each other and using their voices to lift each other up, the natural artistry of the changing seasons, and the Divine love that weaves through and connects us all, from the largest mountain to the smallest blade of grass or speck of pollen. It’s all connected, yet we seem so separate at times!

We Can't Go Quiet

"Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you."  -Ruth Bader Ginsburg


I've Been Thinking...

I haven’t been sleeping well lately. I can’t come up with one particular reason why, however I can come up with about 100 different things that keep me up at night staring at the ceiling.

This weekend, it was the passing of one of my heroes, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Her death brought me to tears for so many reasons. I admired her. I was deeply grateful to her. I depended on her. I depended on her being here. I depended on her voice, her judgment, and her guidance in the public square. Her death left me feeling down, really down. I even felt a wave of despair come over me. So much has happened in 2020, and yet Ginsburg’s passing is one of the biggest and most consequential news stories of this year.
