Dr John Demartini is a world leading inspirational speaker and author in the personal and professional development area. He has been a mentor for me in many ways and I had the privilege of interviewing him one on one for my Millionaire School millionaire mindset series. You may have seen him on the movie The Secret. He is an extraordinary man who devotes his entire life to travelling over 360 days of the year doing what he loves.
What is even more extraordinary is that he was told at a very young age that he would not amount to much, and was learning disabled. He didn't learn to read until he was 17 years old. He has now read 30,000 books and texts in the areas of philosophy, psychology, metaphysics and theology, and has authored 40 books.
Nothing is missing in your life it is in a different form that you may not recognize. Whether you feel you are lacking in a relationship, wealth or When you can recognise the form that it already exists and appreciate it- you then have the ability to transform it.
Values- Everyone lives by a set of values- the things that are most important to them and those that are the least important.The hierarchy of your values. As you grow and mature these values will change. Whatever we believe to be most missing ( VOID) in our life becomes our highest priority or highest value- the most valuable to you. You will always spend your time, effort, energy and money on the things that are most valuable to you. People when asked often list the things they think society says they should value, rather than what is actually most valuable to them. If you are living someone else's values, you will remain unfulfilled.
When you know what your values are it is easier to find your purpose because you have clarity around what is truly most important to you.
The Demartini Value Determination Process can be found on his website.

There are no mistakes- absolutely everything that happens to you is their to put you on your path to your purpose. Some people find their purpose really early on while others go through life without finding it. The challenges that you face and go through are guiding you toward your purpose.To live a meaningful and fulfilling life you need to be on purpose. Somewhere inside of you, you already know what you would love to spend your time doing. Often you just don't let yourself see it so you block that information
Love- we become wise when we know that love is the answer to all questions.
