WARRIOR of the Moment


Today we’re talking about the Four Purposes of life. We’re peeling back how that’s different than your personal purpose and what that has to do with your career choice and calling. And how to effectively embrace your purpose even if what you’re passionate about is not what you do for a living with a peaceful heart and a warrior’s spirit.

Dan Millman, a former world champion athlete, gymnastics coach, martial arts instructor and college professor, has authored 16 books published in 29 languages. His classic semi-autobiographical book, Way of the Peaceful Warrior, was adapted to film in 2006 and is a fascinating story.

We chat about his latest book, The Four Purposes of Life: Finding Meaning and Direction in a Changing World. Dan is an in-demand speaker who brings his message of the way of the peaceful warrior to audiences around the world.
