Is Life Pushing You Off Course?

On September 1, 1983, Korean Airline flight 0073 took off from Anchorage Alaska heading to Tokyo, Japan.

The end result was catastrophic.  

Ten minutes after take-off the Boeing 747 deviated off course, and although the outcome wasn’t immediate, the end result was catastrophic.  

Its authorized flight path was the northern most route, just 17 miles off the edge of forbidden Russian airspace.

Within five minutes into the flight the plane was already 7.5 miles off course, due north. Somehow the proper course correction was never made, and five and a half hours later the Boeing 747, unknowingly crossed into Russian airspace.

It was promptly shot down.

All 269 passengers and crew were killed.

How about with you?

  • Are you living life on purpose?

  • Are you moving toward who you want to further become and what you want to further accomplish?

  • Have the challenges and headwinds of life pushed you off course?

  • Has the daily drudgery of life put you in a rut, causing you to drift?

  • Have the disappointments of life deadened your heart from having a meaningful life?

If so, I’d love to help.

One of my main purposes in life is to help people live a more purposeful and productive life. So if you feel like life has pushed you off course, or you’re just not sure which direction to head - I’d love to help.

Living on Purpose


Shaped By Life: Twisted or Transformed?
Shaped By Life - slide - image.jpg

When my late wife was killed in a car accident (March 2004)

I knew it would shape me.

It wasn’t a question of if, only a question of how.

  • Would it change me for the better or for the worse?

  • Would it move me towards who I hoped to become, or shape me into someone I didn’t want to become?

  • Would it move me toward my destiny in life or push me away from it?

I knew the choice was mine.

Whether it’s through the crushing blow of tragedy or the chipping away through daily demands and disappointments - life is going to shape us.

Some people become hardened, others more humble.
Some become cynical, others more grateful.
Some grow to resent life; others discover a deeper purpose to life.
Some wilt, others bloom. Some learn to hate, others learn to love.
Some become hopeless; others become resilient.
Some are blown off course; others are moved toward their destiny.

It’s not a question of if, only a question of how.

So let me ask you: How is life shaping you?

  • Are you becoming twisted into someone you don’t want to become or are you allowing life to transform you into the person you desire to be?

  • Are you allowing life to move you toward your ultimate purpose in life, or have you allowed the winds and storms of life to push you away from your desired destiny?

Our response determines the outcome. The choice is ours!

If I can in anyway help you to more fully live life on purpose or if you are currently navigating a major-life transition or tragedy - I would love to help.
