Passion and Purpose – Transform Your Life From Trivial to Triumphant

When you lose your passion in life, at worse you spiral out of control; at best you become a zombie, sleepwalking through life. It doesn’t matter how smart, educated, hard-working, skilled, wealthy or successful you are. A loss of passion takes away all the advantages you have in life. A loss of passion eventually leads to depression, which can take weeks, months or even years to recover from. 

Triggering events are often the root cause of a loss of passion. Triggering events include a job loss, demotion, death in the family, illness, financial stress or the accumulation of Poverty Habits that trigger Detrimental Bad Luck in your life. When you experience a loss of passion you lose your ability to achieve. You get stuck and you lose your zest for living and doing. Life begins to spiral downward into a black hole that draws you in, deeper and deeper.

Those who recover their loss of passion during triggering events all have one thing in common: a purpose. Having a purpose in life acts like a firewall against those triggering events that sap us of our passion. Think of those triggering events as the flu and your main purpose as the antibiotic. Purpose shortens and diffuses those triggering events and allows you to recover your passion much quicker. Purpose is the antidote to a loss of passion and potential depression. Purpose not only defends against those loss of passion triggering events, it helps raise you to a completely different level in life. Purpose helps you evolve as a person. It motivates, inspires, elevates and makes life worth living.

You need to have a major purpose in life. Those who do, transform their lives from trivial to triumphant. Sir Edmund Hillary did just that. On May 29, 1953, he and a Nepalese Sherpa, Tenzing Norgay, set foot on the 29,028-foot (8,848-metre) summit of Everest, the highest point on earth. They had succeeded where others had failed, and had survived a journey that had taken the lives of great explorers before them and many since. Until that year, Edmund Hillary had lived in relative obscurity as a beekeeper in Auckland, New Zealand, but the unprecedented feat of scaling the world’s highest mountain brought him a fame he could hardly have imagined.

If you don’t have a main purpose in life, find one. This strategy will show you how: (

When you find a purpose in life you will find your passion for living again. And you will find an unlimited supply of happiness and success.

Thomas C. Corley About Thomas C. Corley

Tom Corley understands the difference between being rich and poor: at age nine, his family went from being multi-millionaires to broke in just one night, due to a catastrophic fire that destroyed his Dad's thriving business. For fourteen years they struggled with poverty. There were eleven in Tom's family, and they lived in constant fear of losing their home.

Driven by the desire to unlock the secrets to success and failure, Tom spent five years studying the daily activities of 233 rich people and 128 poor people. He discovered there was an immense difference between the habits of the rich and the poor. During his research he identified over 300 daily activities that separated the “haves” from the “have nots.” Tom decided to write a book to share what he learned. That book, Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals (1st Edition), went on to become an Amazon Bestseller in the United States forty times over a three year period. To give you some perspective, in order to be a true Amazon Bestseller in the United States, where you actually receive a specific Bestseller designation from Amazon, you need to be in the top 100 of all books sold by Amazon in the United States in a given day. Rich Habits did that for nearly thirty straight days, rising as high as #7, eclipsing such Bestselling authors such as Stephen Covey, Robert Kiyosaki and J.K. Rowlings. Imagine that - an unknown, first-time, self-published author selling more books than J.K. Rowlings!

Tom now travels the world, sharing his Rich Habits and motivating audiences at industry conferences, corporate events, universities, multi-level marketing group events, and global sales organizations’ presentations and finance conferences. He has even spoken on the same stage with famous entrepreneurs and personal development experts, such as Sir Richard Branson, Robin Sharma, Dr. Daniel Amen, and many others.

Tom has shared his insights on various national and international network, cable, and Internet television programs such as CBS Evening News, NBC News, Yahoo Financially Fit,, India TV, Australia, and a host of others. He has been interviewed on many prestigious nationally syndicated radio shows, including the Dave Ramsey Show, Marketplace Money, and WABC.

Tom has been featured in numerous print magazines—such as Money magazine, Inc. Magazine, SUCCESS Magazine, Entrepreneur magazine, Fast Company magazine, More magazine, Epoca Magazine (Brazil’s largest weekly) and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine—and various online publications, including USA Today, CNN, MSN Money,,, and the Huffington Post. Tom is a frequent contributor to Business Insider,, and a few other media outlets.

National publicity has garnered international media attention for Tom and his Rich Habits research spanning 23 countries. Broadcast media, online publications, and television throughout Asia, the South Pacific, Europe, the United Kingdom, and Central and South America have shared his powerful message.

In an effort to help parents, grandparents, teachers and adults become success mentors to the younger generation, Tom released his second book, Rich Kids: How to Raise Our Children to be Happy and Successful in Life in 2014. This book was the self-help category winner of the 2015 New York Book Festival and Runner-up in the prestigious 2015 Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards Contest. In 2016 Tom released his third book, Change Your Habits, Change Your Life. This book provides the latest science on habit change as well as more of Tom's unique research on the specific habits that helped transform 177 ordinary individuals into self-made millionaires.

Besides being an author, Tom is also a CPA, CFP, and hold a master’s degree in taxation. As president of Cerefice and Company, CPAs, Tom heads one of the premier financial firms in New Jersey.
