In this episode, we delve into the challenging yet rewarding journey of understanding what we truly want from life. We discuss the fear of failure, rejection, and the courage it takes to be honest with ourselves.
The importance of understanding what we want from life and how it's often more challenging to express as adults due to our fear of failure and rejection.The role of our intrinsic calling and how we often delay the pursuit of it until the pain of avoiding it outweighs the struggle of embracing it.The concept of taking calculated risks and stepping out of our comfort zone to respond to our calling.The power of change and how our life story, including its darkest chapters, holds clues to the impact we yearn to make on the world.The transformative power of any occupation when we have a mission in mind.The importance of rewards that energize us and maintain our positive attitude, and how voicing these rewards is an underappreciated aspect of career management.The challenge to uncover what we genuinely want from our life’s work, define how we want to effect that change, and clarify the rewards that will keep us invigorated.
“Our lives improve only when we take chances - and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.” - Walter Inglis Anderson
