An inspiring friend of mine, Sean Aiken, recently inspired the stage at TEDx Vancouver. A friend who’s life mission is to inspire possibility. If you have the time, take a look. Here’s what struck me the most:
“The people who are the most passionate about their work are the ones who are connected to the MEANING behind it. The actual job isn’t nearly important as their relationship with it. They need to show up to work everyday because they contribute their gifts and the world is made better because of it. And yet our career is only one means of expressing our gifts, one means of fulfilling our passions. For some, working a job to pay the bills allows them to eplore their passions outside of work. What’s most important is that in some aspect of our life, we give ourselves PERMISSION to express our gifts. This is when we feel truly alive.
Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive. And go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. – Howard Thurman
What is your gift? What contribution will you offer the world? What makes you come alive?”
Way to go Sean!!!!
Smile with your heart
