Your purpose should be a verb.

The difference between purpose and career and passion
If you’re traveling down the road of life...
Your purpose is the road or the highway.
Getting on the right road to get to the right destination.
Your career is the vehicle in which you travel down that road.
You can have more than one vehicle.
Passion is your fuel. A mix of inspiration, motivation, rest, travel, whatever refuels you.
The larger the vehicle, the more fuel you will need.
The passion bucket - surrounding yourself with people and things that refuel you
Why personal leadership matters:
Goes back to self-discipline
Living a life of intention so you can do more than status quo
Maximizing your potential not for yourself but to help other people
To want more in order to give more
Being the best possible version of you so you can help other people become the best versions of themselves.

Ryan’s final thoughts for the listeners:
“Get a pen and paper. Write down 15 items - things that you have always wanted to do in your life… don’t ‘how’ it all and figure out how it’s going to happen… if life was unlimited, what would I do?”
