INSTRUCTIONS

The Targets database contains examples of group(s) of people 
      and things that you would like to help the most. The database is only a 
      small cross section of society. Obviously it is impossible to list ALL the 
      thousands of different elements of society so feel free to substitute any 
      group, groups or cause that you feel the strongest about. You may already 
      be very clear on who or what you most want to help. Use that/those 
      choices. 
      

That being said,

  • select targets from the database below (or make your own choices) that you would most like to see helped (pick as many as you like) and write them down on the second sheet of paper.

  • Then circle or check the one you most want to help.

  • Enter your choice onto the first sheet of paper (your life purpose) where it says target

You have now completed all the parts of the Life Purpose Program. Make sure you entered them in the proper places on your Life Purpose "statement".
Congratulations! You now know what your life purpose is. Once 
      you know, it is then up to you to find ways to implement it in the real 
      world. Be true to it and yourself. It may take you a bit of time to find 
      your way and it may be frustrating at times but do not lose hope. Follow 
      your life purpose and you can find the genuine happiness and personal 
      fulfillment you have always wanted!
