“You are meant to shine, I believe that fiercely. You are here to find that cause, that main aim, that vital destiny that will move you at the most visceral level and get you up at the crack of dawn with fire in your belly. You are meant to find something that your life will stand for that will consume you, something so beautiful and meaningful that you’d be willing to take a bullet for it.” (Robin Sharma)
Robin Sharma is one of my favourite writers, but this time I disagree with him on one little thing – life’s too short, and too precious for me to take a bullet for ANYTHING on this planet. But the rest I agree with one hundred percent. Each and everyone of us has been born to fulfill something unique. The Universe is waiting patiently for us to wake up to that fact, while we take our little detours before heading out towards that ultimate goal of our life. Maybe at this point of time, you can not fathom what it is that you can do so unique and different from any other person, that can be meaningful.
But, as Robin further goes on to say: It might mean developing people at work and helping them live their highest potential. It might mean being an innovator who adds outrageous value to your clients and brings cool products to the world. Your cause might evolve elevating communities or helping people in need.
Or it could be like mine – managing client relationships at work during the day, and blogging at night.
Whatever it is, don’t wait for the answer to come to you; instead actively seek it.
