It does not only stop at defining the purpose of your existence, it is way more than that, you have got to have a ‘clear purpose’. A purpose driven life would definitely be an new of all eyes, such a life would affect and impart others positively and so also would be success personified.
A life with a clear purpose would readily surmount challenges and turn them into gold mines, how you might want to ask?
