Everyone wishes for more time. More time to create, more time to sleep, more time with loved ones. We constantly search for more time and fail. What if, instead of adding more time, you could multiply the time you already have?
Fear is present every time we sit down to create. No matter how often we face fear, daily acts of courage are required of anyone who dares to pursue a dream.
We have many fears. Fear of success, fear of failure, fear of insignificance. Motivational speakers and inspirational memes would have us believe boxing fear into submission is the path to bravery. True courage, as it turns out, looks a little different.
We break out of the gates of college entitled to a job where we change the world, find meaning, and pay the bills. Reality requires a bit more humility and hustle.
Discovering our calling is an exercise in understanding where our skills and passions intersect with a significant need. Long-term success is found by first identifying a need and searching for the solution rather than crafting a solution and imposing it on others. No one likes to be told they have a problem.
A sense of significance is the longing at the core of every heart. You want your work to matter. To do things you love with people you care about. Essentially to live a prolific life.
Don’t ignore the calling inside making you think there may be more to your life. Close the gap between your dream and your reality.
Kids dream of the impossible. As adults, we think we know better and put those dreams on a shelf. Over time they collect dust and we resign ourselves to defeat. What if this isn’t reality?
