The moral of the story, find your true WHY
After you answer these questions, ask why five times. Go beneath the surface, keep asking why. Dig deeper, the more you learn about yourself, the clearer the picture will get.
Choose to do something that you love, you have the energy to do every day, and you have a sense of urgency to get out of bed to do it.
If you want to feed the homeless, but you have no sense of urgency about doing it, do not do it. If you want to be a teacher, but you have no patience, do not do it. If you want to be an UBER driver, but you do not like sitting in a car for longer than 30 minutes, do not do it.
Dig deep and ask yourself, why do I want to do this? why? why? why? why?
The first answer is the easy answer, ignore it. Keep searching deep until you find something that you love, you have the energy to do it, and you have a sense of urgency to do it today.
Do something that you are committed to doing, and you have the discipline to do it every day. If you choose to be an artist, commit to practicing every day. Be disciplined to do it when you are tired. When you find your WHY, do not hide it, share it with the world. The world needs you to be at your best, do not hide, show up, and be generous.
