Fifteen years ago my life was certainly not balanced. I was constantly working and was not paying attention to my health or my family. I was on a collision course and headed toward self destruction. I was in tremendous personal pain and really did not know where to go or who to turn too.
Along came a friend who was very in tune with my path of personal self destruction. He knew of my pain even thought I had not discussed my issues with him. I called him my guardian angel for his intervention with a little book called “The On-Purpose Person: Making Your Life Make Sense” was perfect timing. He gave me this book and insisted that I read it. On an airplane trip to Seattle, WA I read the book not just once but twice. I thought the character in the parable was me. This little book was like a whack on the side of my head, a wake up call to take an inventory of what was important. My values were not congruent with what I wanted in life and this was causing tremendous consternation. I was so inspired by the story in “The On Purpose Person” that I had to speak with the author so I called him up and we talked about my pain. He provided me with as much guidance as he could over the phone, but suggested the I might want to take a two-day course called the “The On Purpose Person“. The only challenge is that he did not have any scheduled for California. So I suggested that I help him put together a group of people and have him fly out and do a workshop. So that is what I did. I started calling many of my friends, family and associates about the planned workshop, and I was able to fill the room. I guess that I was not the only one who was feeling out of balance with their life.
The rest is history. Kevin came to California and we became great friends. I am forever grateful for having been introduced to this life changing course. I recommend that you listen to this podcast and link to his web site for more information about “The On Purpose Person” and “The On Purpose Business”. If you are in the midst of reevaluating your priorities in life or business and could use some help, you have come upon the perfect guidance course and book.
I hope you enjoy this interview with Kevin McCarthy.
