“True not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.”
— Helen Keller

Today’s Excerpt:

Watch “What is Your Purpose in Life?” (3-min video) from SoulPancake to hear people from all ages talk about their purpose.


  • One 6-year-old girl said her purpose is “to make people happy and smile.” A 60-year-old woman said her purpose is to “educate and entertain.” Were there any other answers that stood out to you?
  • How do you know what your purpose should be?

Generally, a purpose is an intention to do things that are personally meaningful and helpful to others. Like the 6-year-old in the video said, “to make people happy and smile.”
