94% Have No Purpose

Prominent Psychologist, William Marsten, surveyed 3,000 people and found that 94% had no purpose in life.

In another study, called the 2015 UK Optimism Audit, 69% of the 2,000 study subjects said they were unhappy with their lives. The main reason?

Unfulfilled work.

When you do not have a main purpose in life, life becomes drudgery. The result is unhappiness.

According to my Rich Habits research, having a main purpose in life is critical to success, building wealth and happiness.

82% of the self-made millionaires in my study had pursued some big dream. This spurred them on to achieve great things in life.

Dreams give you a purpose in life. When you pursue a dream, it toggles on a number of success traits:

  • Self-Motivation
  • Intense Desire
  • Hard Work Ethic
  • Enthusiasm
  • Positive Mental Outlook
  • Self-Education – Desire to Learn
  • Focus
  • Emotional Control
  • Patience
  • Persistence
  • Meaningful Goal-Setting
  • Forging Success Relationships (Birds of a Feather)
  • Financial Literacy
  • Greater Risk Tolerance
  • Increased Confidence
  • Adopting Good Habits – Habits That Help You Achieve Your Dreams/Goals
  • Self-Awareness
  • Delayed Gratification
  • Open Mind
  • Team Building
  • Efficient Time Management
  • Expectations Management
  • Leveraging Resources
  • Fearlessness
  • Seeking Feedback
  • Asking for What You Need or Want
  • Eliminate time Wasters
  • Asking the Right Questions

All of these success traits reside inside each person. They are only revealed when you pursue a dream or some main purpose in life.

Put your ladder on your wall.

Don’t waste your life pursuing someone else’s dream or main purpose in life. It’s your life. Pursue your dreams. Find your main purpose.
