All of us have been put here for some kind of transcendent purpose. It’s the ground rent that you pay for being a human being on this earth.” Joe Ehrmann


How can you find your purpose in life? In this episode, the last in a special series of six, Brian and Joe Ehrmann teach how you can discover your transcendent cause and really make a difference in the world. Topics discussed include why the wounds of your past can ultimately serve others; how purpose can be found in the everyday, not just the heroic; why the spiritual disciplines of silence, solitude and journaling are so important; and how you can leave a lasting legacy.





  • Why you must be healthy to the core to find your transcendent cause.
  • How your unique gifts, interests and abilities influence your purpose.
  • Why finding your passion will help you uncover your unique purpose.

“The first thing you have to do is really look at the path that you’ve already traveled. I think the past of where you’ve come from – with all the brokenness, with all the wounds, with all the challenges – it’s that path that’s going to take you to the future and help you discover your own transcendent cause.” – Joe Ehrmann

“We can use the wounds of our past to ultimately serve and help humanity and it actually makes us more valuable.” – Brian Buffini

“Power is perfected in our weakness. And I would say that purpose is often birthed in our pain; it provides substance and meaning and values in our lives.” – Joe Ehrmann

“The first thing you need to do in order to discover your own personal purpose is to be healthy to the core.” – Joe Ehrmann
