You do not write because you are a good writer – you write more to become a good writer.
You do not play basketball because you are a good player – you play more and more to become a good player.
You do not paint because you are born knowing everything there’s to learn about painting – you start painting so you become the best, most talented painter.
You try. You fall. You compare. You take notes. You learn.
Very often in our professional and personal lives, we feel like we need to have that “thing”, that “it factor” so you can be your best. So you live your purpose in life. So you accomplish your mission. We keep discovering. We lose sleep over it. We can’t seem to find it. Where is it? And how can we accomplish that mission, if we are not sure what our “thing” is… Because we need it, in order to be our best, for our mission…
Do we, really?
But then… What if we stop looking? What if we let “that thing” FIND US instead?
“Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.”
― Joseph Campbell
