 “When you live your purpose you are in the flow. Life is effortless, opportunities flow to you and you become unstoppable- H. Richard Steinhoff.” 

As we explore the steps we can take to lead ourselves to a happier, healthier life, it becomes increasingly evident that the starting point for the roadmap to aging youthfully is in your mind. In previous episodes you heard about resilience, about rebounding from trauma, and beliefs that influence behavior. Also how to avoid a life of regrets and t training your  brain to keep your cognitive powers sharp. 

Today we discuss finding your life purpose. 

 “Everyone has a purpose in life and a unique talent to give to others. And when we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our own spirit, which is the ultimate goal of all goals.” -Kallam Anji Reddy

A near-death experience led today’s guest to realize his life purpose. Richard Steinhoff is the author of “Dying on Purpose: How My Near-Death Experience Can Change Your LIfe.” Richard is a real estate broker who has written 8 books on real estate. He is a  community leader, dedicated to improving people’s lives.  

We touch briefly on his career in aerospace, working on the Apollo program and having the incredible experience of being at Cape Canaveral for the Apollo 13 mission. Neither that nor his dedication to fundraising for the arts, suggested that he would one day write a book about a near-death experience that could change people’s lives around the world. 

Prior to this life transforming event, Richard had it all, a beautiful, loving wife, and a successful real estate business. When a diseased gallbladder landed him in the hospital for surgery, a series of complications on the operating table nearly killed him. He had an out-of-body, Near-Death Experience, encountering a heavenly being, who told him he had to return to his body because he had not completed his life’s purpose.  From then on, he realized that his life purpose was to guide others to discover theirs. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Find the one thing that you are truly gifted at, something no one else can do but you. 
  • Research has shown that knowing your purpose can add years to your life expectancy.  
  • When you live your purpose you are in the flow. That means that life is effortless, and opportunities just flow to you. And everything seems to fall into place. And then you become alive and you become unstoppable. 
  • Living a purposeful life is all about building a legacy of making a positive impact with the world around you.
