292 pages4 hours


What if you could *literally* unfurl your brilliance across the universe?

Absolutely on Purpose isn’t just a collection of visionary common sense for life, art and entrepreneurship. It’s a kick-ass guide to living with passion, purpose and vision, and a smörgåsbord of ideas on how to impact the heart of humanity by doing whatever you love.

Debut author Stephanie Holland delivers a feast of wisdom from forty-nine visionaries around the world who have mastered a blueprint for success designed around the ancient principles of yoga.

Written in a style similar to other contemporaries such as Chris Guillebeau and Blake Mycoskie, and deeply evocative of the wisdom taught by teachers such as Dr John Demartini, Mike Dooley and Byron Katie, Stephanie takes the reader on a journey of identifying and exploding the self-imposed blockades and prisons that many of us have created. She works with the reader to help remove the excuses and the stories we tell ourselves that keep us from living Absolutely on Purpose.

Unearthing powerful stories of transformation and success, Stephanie presents yoga philosophy as a powerful thought-system vital for success in life, art and entrepreneurship. Introducing passion, purpose and vision as the three steps to creating a favourable outcome in any area, the essential ‘feast’ of the book is to show how you can master the art of living Absolutely on Purpose, the greatest personal challenge of our age.

You’ll navigate uncharted terrain by delving into your inner world and challenging everything you think you know about yourself. Featuring workbooks designed around nuggets of visionary wisdom, this ‘self-help book for people who don’t buy self-help books’ transforms into a choose-your-own-adventure story where you get to declare what matters most to you.

To begin with, you’ll learn to:
• Evaluate the importance of going with the flow, inhabiting the moment, and stepping out of your comfort zone.
• Develop greater awareness around your thoughts, actions, emotions and body (and how they affect your success).
• Integrate breath, movement, stillness, space and nature to energise and empower yourself.
• Learn the power of being kind, truthful, brave and empowered.
• Discover your creative genius and innate talents.
• Challenge your core beliefs and values, limitations and judgements, and learn to handle conflict.
• Discover new strategies to obliterate ‘monkey mind’ and get started.
Then you’ll move on to defining your own passion, purpose and vision.

Stephanie sheds new light on timeless wisdom in a unique way. She speaks to people who feel stuck, confused and tangled up in their lives. But beware, Stephanie’s writing style pulls no punches. To those of you asking ‘How the hell did I end up here, and what do I do now?’, you'll find some answers – if you do the work.

This is not a passive read. If you have the tendency to read through books without taking any action, this book is not for you. If you’re looking for tips on how to get rich quick, this book is not for you. If you have a victim complex and believe others are ‘born lucky’, this book is not for you.

If you want a fresh set of tools designed to help you dismantle the excuses that keep you stuck, or are not sure how to live the life of your dreams, this book is for you. It will help shift your perspective of what's possible and help propel you towards a life that is Absolutely on Purpose.
