Video #3: Day 1 Exercises
This is the most important day, so please carve out at least 40 minutes to complete today’s two exercises. The first one is the Purpose Triangle. In this exercise, you’ll get your first purpose statement - one sentence that distills, and over time eventually expresses, who you are at your deepest level. Your purpose statement will evolve over time as you work with it. It will also empower you to make decisions based on which option best expresses and serves your purpose.
In the second exercise, you’ll create and commit to performing a Morning Purpose Ritual every morning. Why? Research proves that it takes only three weeks to make or break a habit. So by the end of the 21-Day Purpose Challenge, you’ll have embedded the habit of beginning each day with the deepest truth of your life, creating each day intentionally in a way that serves who you are.
The Purpose Triangle Exercise
Welcome to the Purpose Triangle Exercise. The goal of this exercise is to help you create your purpose statement. Each Purpose Statement has three parts, making a triangle the ideal visual aid. The three parts are:
These are the qualities of your being, your essential nature, words you and others might describe you (e.g. kind, curious, creative, playful, visionary, compassionate, loving, brave). These are qualities that you express naturally and effortlessly.
These are your natural full level abilities, the expressions of Being that bring you joy. They not only make you feel alive, but benefit others when you offer them. These are the ways you transform other and the world (e.g. teaching, healing, listening, creating, playing, building, protecting, providing).
The last piece, your Mission, is the most active component of your purpose. This is the direction in which your Being and Talents are applied to effect a positive outcome. This could be for other people or the planet, an act of creative service or art.
For example: Gandhi’s being, as I understand him, was: nonviolence, courage, and love. His gifts were his oratory, his vision, and his mission was to liberate India from British-colonial rule using nonviolent means. Gandhi was able to take all three of these pieces, unite them, and affect massive change for an incredible number of people.

Morning Purpose Ritual Exercise
Your Morning Purpose Ritual is meant to take only one to three minutes of steady consistent focus each morning. For the next seven days, the first piece of your Morning Purpose Ritual will be rewriting your purpose statement to make it livelier and more powerful, to reveal the deeper truths of who you are. It’s okay if you write the same purpose statement over each day. That just means you’re really clear about what your purpose is. If it changes dramatically each day, that’s fine, too; it just means you have many passions, missions, and qualities you want to express. Because your purpose statement is part of your Morning Purpose Ritual, consider placing it on your mirror, door, cell phone, or computer, some place you will see it upon waking. Add in any other elements that are beneficial to you (e.g. prayer, chanting, or meditation).
