What This is Course About

What Does it All Mean?

Seriously, why are we here?

We were all told that if we just work hard in school, get good grades, get a college degree, and land a job that we will be happy and successful.

Then maybe get married, have some kids, watch Netflix on the weekend, and hit up Taco Tuesdays for some extra spice in life.

But is that really all there is? Is this it?

You’re frustrated you could be doing more with your life but you just don’t know how.

You are on a never ending cycle of trial & error and groping around in the dark trying to discover the principles by which one creates a purposeful, passionate life.

I'm not just talking about outward "success". I'm talking about inner meaning — loving your work, waking up excited!

But what should you do with your life?

“Follow your passion!” is what all the gurus will shout at you. What if you don’t know your passion? And what does that even mean? 

Being like your friend who has been trying to get that YouTube channel off the ground for the last 3 years? Surely our work means something more than this, right?!?

Find Out Who You Really Are

Yes, there absolutely is.

Somewhere inside you, there’s a person with a really good reason to get out of bed and face each day with intention and purpose. 

There’s a person who wants to take on challenges with passion and grit. 

There’s a person who can do important, meaningful things with their life. To make a difference in the world.

But you’ll never get to be that person if the way you live your life isn’t aligned with everything you want to do and who you want to be.

You need a sense of direction, a guiding force that helps you through all the obstacles and barriers life puts in your way. 

You need a purpose in your life.

Discover How to Make Impact in This World

You see the challenges our world is facing: climate change, poverty, inadequate healthcare, collapsing economies, and dozens other anxiety producing tragedies…

What if I told you that in your unique set of passions and skills you could make a MASSIVE difference in these issues?

And wouldn't that be work worth doing? 

Here is the secret they didn’t tell you: purpose is not found. It’s developed.

Purpose is about combining what is deeply, intrinsically meaningful to you, developing a skill set around that, and putting it into service of others.

But how?

Finally Reach Fulfillment, Meaning & Purpose in Life

If you're wandering around aimlessly in life, trying to figure out what it all means, then this course is for you. 

The How to Find Your Purpose course is a 27 day program that combines psychology and ancient wisdom with modern science and systems thinking to help you develop passions into purpose, find out who you really are, how to make an impact in this world, and finally feel a sense of fulfillment in your life.

You need zero prior experience to take the course — everything you need to know is explained step-by-step in this training program.

One of the best parts of this course (and all Plato University courses) is that you won't be learning alone.

By enrolling for FREE today, you’ll also get to join our exclusive live online community of dedicated lifelong learners. You'll get to learn and grow alongside passionate learners and ask questions of instructors.

And you will also get worksheets, exercises, extra resources, and most importantly, the tools necessary to actually implement what you'll learn.

It’s time to take responsibility and control of your life. There's so much meaning and fulfillment waiting for you if you know the right places to look. 

We can show how. Join us.

Founder of Plato University

Brandon is the Founder of Plato University, where you can get a personalized education built around your passions, highly in-demand, real world skills, and the impact you want to make. Being a poor kid from the trailer park living in a broken home, he knows the power of education to transform ones life. But after chasing education's promise of a golden ticket, he graduated with a degree in a career he was not passionate about or felt would make a real difference in the world. Ultimately he had no meaning, impact, or sense of purpose in his life. Since then, he's surrounded himself with and learned from dozens of social entrepreneurs making a difference in the world, built half a decade of experience as a designer, marketer, and educator for mission driven companies, and built educational programs that have reached over 80,000 people.
