All his life, Benjamin Franklin Gates has been searching for a treasure no one believed existed: amassed through the ages, moved across continents, to become the greatest treasure the world has ever known. Hidden by the Founding Fathers, they left clues to the treasure's location right before our eyes... from the nation's birthplace, to the nation's capitol, to clues buried within the symbols on the dollar bill.

In a race against time, Gates must elude the FBI, stay one step ahead of his ruthless adversary, decipher the remaining clues and unlock the 2000 year-old mystery behind the greatest national treasure.

What an exciting storyline; it has all the makings of a great movie. Wait a minute... it is a movie. Let me rephrase that... What an exciting storyline; it has all the makings of a great life...

After seeing the movie National Treasure last weekend, the only thought that crossed my mind while leaving the theatre was, "What next?" Here is a man, defying all others' opinion, dedicates his entire life to searching for and securing an invaluable treasure he is sure exists. And - to spoil the plot for you - at the end of the movie, he finds it. So, what's next? Having fulfilled his life goal, what is next for Mr. Benjamin Franklin Gates?

And better yet, what's next for you? What have you spent the last five years focusing on accomplishing? Have you gotten there yet? If not, once you do, what will you do then?

Two of the greatest questions you will ever answer are as follows:

  • What do I believe about Life - its purpose, its destination, its outcome? This is your personal national treasure.
  • What paths will I take based on what I believe? This is your grand adventure, saga and making of your personal life movie.

It is here where the rubber meets the road. It is here where your search begins, regardless of the world's opinion. So search with all your heart on your grand adventure for the treasure that lies just behind your eyes, within your very being. Find that purpose and take those paths... it has all the makings of a great life.
