This week, they discuss a challenging, but basic idea, that everyone must grapple with - what is the purpose of your life. Daniel discusses his path to Martial Arts and the failures that helped him find meaningful work and purpose in his life. 


How Failure can be a catalyst for positive growth.

How you can find meaning in any work you do by doing it well and contributing to others.

The fantasy of escaping to a place where your problems don't exist.
