What are PFE & Big Five
About PFE and Big Five for Life
How would you feel if all your time and energy were aligned with the five most important things you wanted to do, see, or experience in your lifetime? The five things that would help you fulfill the very reason why you were born?
In 2002, my wife and I left our careers, our family, our house, and almost everything we owned behind. Then we headed off to backpack around the world. Most people thought we were crazy.
It turned out to be a life changing experience that covered almost seventy thousand miles. It was also the way we spent our first year of marriage.
During those travels, I had a profound experience in Africa. It proved to be an experience that would transform my life, and in turn, the lives of thousands of people around the world who have learned of it through my writing and live presentations.
That discovery includes two main pieces. The first is something I call Purpose for Existing, or PFE for short. The second I call the Big Five for Life™.
I explain these discoveries in great detail through my books and CDs. Let me briefly explain them here.
You were born for a reason. It was not a mistake, an act of serendipitous luck, and it didn't occur randomly. You arrived exactly when you knew you would, into the exact environment you planned on arriving into, with full knowledge of what you were getting yourself into. Except that in the moment you arrived, you forgot all that. Which is exactly what was supposed to happen.
Your challenge, is to remember that reason that you chose to have this life experience. Then if you choose to, to fulfill it. I call the reason your PFE, or Purpose for Existing. It's why you're here.
In conjunction with your PFE, you have a Big Five for Life™. You get to choose these too, only for these, you choose them now, while you're here. They are the five things you most want to do, see, or experience in your lifetime. The five things so powerful to you, that if you do, see, or experience them before you die, then you will feel that your life has been a success by your own personal definition of success.
This site, and all my efforts through my writings and recordings, are dedicated toward helping you find, fulfill, and fund your PFE and Big Five for Life™. As far as I can tell, that's a big part of why I'm here.
As you read the articles and listen to the audios here on the site, you'll see that some of my focus is on helping explain PFE and Big Five for Life™ in the context of being a leader. My book, The Big Five for Life- Leadership's Greatest Secret covers that in detail, as does the section of this site on Leadership Training.
If you don't consider yourself a leader, don't let this throw you. In truth, at every moment of our life, we are all called to be leaders. If for no other purpose, than to lead ourselves.
I have found in my own life that an awareness of ones PFE and Big Five for Life is the start of something miraculous. Fulfilling them is even better. So if the feeling is right, join me on this adventure my fellow traveler. And we shall see where it takes us.
