Talk to most people about the power of manifesting desires and their eyes will just glaze over. It will be apparent they are totally closed to the idea, some may argue, particularly those in western cultures.

I'm a firm believer in the power of knowing ones 'purpose' - as an individual and as an organisation. From experience I know that purpose can serve as a powerful motivator and a yardstick for making the hard choices necessary to be successful, but only if it is accompanied by a clear understanding of how you're going to fulfil it and most importantly it is put to practical use in everyday decisions and actions i.e. it is authentic and credible.
