I spent the first 40 years of my life doing everything I was supposed to.
Everything that I thought other people wanted me to do.
Everything that I was told would make me successful.
Outside looking in, I got the first part.
But a lot of the time, I wasn’t happy.
Just empty, and exhausted.
I was talking to someone today who feels the same way.
And his wife says, “Just be happy you have a job right now.”
It’s good to be grateful for what you have.
But there’s nothing wrong in wanting more.
Nothing wrong in feeling like you could be giving more to the world than you are now.
To me, that’s the universe asking more of you.
And we need more from you right now. The world needs your special genius.
But first you need to make that declaration, of your purpose, and your genius.
And then you need the integrity and courage to live from that.
