Say you had an audience with some supreme being in charge of the entire universe. What would you ask it? According to repeated national survey data over the last decade, the number one question adults would ask: “What’s my purpose here?”

So many of us today feel like we’re merely existing instead of thriving – and that’s where a purpose-oriented mindset comes in. Living with purpose means using your gifts, in keeping with your values, to make a positive impact on the lives of others. But it’s not easy. Half the work of cultivating greater purpose in life involves facing personal and profound questions. What matters most to me? What do I value in other people, and why? What positive change do I want to see in the world?

Finding Your Purpose is designed to help answer questions like these and to put you on the path to meaning. Over the span of 10 engaging, empowering lessons, Professor Christine B. Whelan translates academic research into a program for making a difference in your everyday life, giving you a guidebook for anticipating – and navigating – the practical and emotional obstacles that may stand in the way of discovering your purpose. Whether you’re pushed by pain to make a change in your life or simply intrigued by the possibility of an even better life, this Audible Original is about possibilities and purpose.

It is, ultimately, an Audible Original made just for you.

Young adults want their next steps to be in line with their purpose and passions, but according to new national survey data, they haven’t figured out what those are yet: Only 36% of 18-24 year olds say that the career path that they have chosen is aligned with their life purpose. Enter The Big Picture: A Guide to Finding Your Purpose in Life, the first small-steps program for young-adults to uncover their own personal sense of purpose. Successful behavioral change hinges on the synthesis of personal discovery and the ability to translate it into action. The Big Picture combines research, real-life tests of the efficacy of the exercises with more than 600 students nationwide.

The vast majority of young adults (85%) say they are still seeking a purpose or a mission for their lives. They are seeking a vocabulary for their feelings of hope, frustration and excitement, a language for their yearnings of meaningful work and concrete steps to help them make sense of these “big questions” that challenge us all. The Big Picture is a guide to figuring out what matters—and how to make it happen—by embracing a purpose mindset and connecting to something bigger. Running through the book is a movie theme that asks readers to harness their talents, interests, and values to take action, address problems, create solutions and touch the lives of others. The Big Picture helps readers learn about themselves, pinpoint their passions, take small steps right now toward and anticipate the plot-twists that will get in the way. A great gift for a graduate or a guide for yourself, The Big Picture provides the resources needed to find—and live—a purposeful life.
