Why are you here? What is life for? What are you meant to do? Robert Holden helps you go from looking for your purpose to living it. (Hint: It’s not just about you.)

"The best book on purpose I've ever read! Accept this invitation to awaken to the very reason you're here on Earth."
— Mike Dooley, New York Times best-selling author of Infinite Possibilities and Life on Earth

"How do I find my life’s purpose?" In the 10-year run of Robert Holden's call-in radio show, Shift Happens!, his listeners asked that question more often than any other, by far. It seems everybody is looking for their purpose, and yet we all struggle to recognize it and live it.

In the paperback edition of Higher Purpose, Holden takes readers on an epic journey of self-discovery that includes the hero’s journey with Joseph Campbell, Carl Jung's work on true vocation, Victor Frankl's search for meaning, a pilgrimage with St. Francis of Assisi, the poetry of Wordsworth and Rilke, and much more. The journey has four stages:

  • "The Call" explores "the calling" inside you to live a more meaningful life.
  • "The Path" helps you to realize what inspires you, what brings you alive, to follow your joy, and to do more of what you love.
  • "The Ordeal" tackles the inner blocks, the road of trials, and challenges you must overcome to live your higher purpose.
  • "The Victory" encourages you to not betray yourself, to "sing your whole song," and to keep on saying YES to your soul's high adventure.

In Higher Purpose, Holden explores three distinct levels of purpose: your unique purpose, a shared purpose, and the greater purpose of life. He offers inquiries, meditations, and journaling exercises to help you live your purpose every day. And he shares stories from his own life and conversations with a host of remarkable people—Maya Angelou, Louise Hay, Jean Houston, Matthew Fox, Robert Thurman, Caroline Myss, Andrew Harvey, Wayne Dyer, Oprah Winfrey, and more.

"I hope Robert Holden's beautiful books, like this one . . . keep reaching more and more people and aid their heart to unfurl." 
Daniel Ladinsky, author of The Gift and The Subject Tonight Is Love
