Finally, a new podcast will be released a little later today. I don’t know how the fuck I went two months without doing this but, here we are. No time like the present and all.
This week, I want to talk a little about the importance of the path or journey we all take to finding our “purpose”.
First, I’ll disclaimer this by saying that I believe people can have a number of different purposes, crafts and trades and hobbies of all sorts that they could hone and master given the right allocation of time/effort. You could be the sickest Chef or a mind-bendingly thorough Accountant and, as unrelated both of these fields may seem, your success on these paths could be attributed to the same qualities or traits you possess. The thing that pushes you to succeed in one field could, potentially, be the very thing that pushes you forward in all aspects of your life.
It’s why we see certain people in our lives that we find ourselves in marvel of, sometimes bitterly or begrudgingly, as they manage to find success or equilibrium in anything they dip their toes into. These people know their strengths and, save for blind luck in some cases, work towards applying these strengths to everything that they do in their lives.
While they are often remarkable people with inimitable talents, it’s equally as important to remember that you can adopt that mindset of success and learn to hone your own strengths in the same way.
Will it change your life overnight? No.
But it’s progress.
This week, I’m going to talk a little about how both knowing and not knowing your intended path in life can be equally valuable. As easy as it can be to feel jealous that some folks find a purpose early in life, it’s just as important to remember that the growth on a path can be it’s own sort of valuable when the end-game isn’t as clear.
Let’s hear it, Helpless: did/do you know or not know your path, and how do you let that knowledge (or lack thereof) define the steps you take today?
Enjoy the new episode, folks, and tell a friend real soon.
