It sounds like you haven't got past the initial mental barriers of "clear[ing] your head of all the clutter and the social conditioning about what you think your purpose in life is" (as Steve Pavlina puts it). These answers seem like the "false answers [that] will come from your mind and your memories", that have been put there by OTHERS and not by yourself.
Don't forget, for many if not most people, this process will take far longer than the 20 minutes it took for Steve. It could easily take an hour or longer - Steve said it could even take 5 sessions! I think this quote of his (from the comments section) is particularly pertinent here:
You need to let go of your attachment to what you expect to find in that circle. The true answer lies elsewhere; you're only circling a false pre-conditioned answer, which is why you can't get it to converge inside that circle. Just loosen up a bit on your expectations, relax your mind, head off in a new direction, and keep typing answers, one after another. You have to empty your cup first before you can fill it. The true answer always seems to come just a bit past the point where you're ready to give up."
Maybe it's worthwhile to keep at this method for a while longer, so you can get past the initial barriers and conditioning. You might also find The Meaning of Life: Discover Your Purpose
