“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
~ Howard Thurman
The hardest challenge in life and business is trying to be something that you’re not.
If you’re trying to live up to the expectations of others, you’ll always come up short.
If you’re working diligently to live someone else’s dreams, you’ll never find fulfillment.
True fulfillment comes when you doing what you’re passionate about and everything about your life screams, “I’m alive!”
Take a look around, where you’ll find success you’ll see originals, people that are voices… Never echoes.
Now look at yourself, your goals, dreams plans and ambitions. Is this really you or is it what you think people around you want?
Be Who You Were Meant to Be
I’ve discovered that when I try to fit the mold that I think people want me to fit in, I’m miserable, unfulfilled and without purpose. I’ve learned that before I can move forward, I have to look inward. When I align the who to the what, I then can be… The person that I was meant to be.
The last thing you can do is invest time, money and energy into someone else’s expectations.
You need to make the break today!
- Be honest with yourself.
- Define your course of action.
- Commit to being intentional.
- Develop your daily routine.
- Do one thing… Really well.
