The Secret to Finding Life's Sweet Spot



"Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." - Howard Thurman

I like the sentiment expressed here. We can often make the mistake of looking outside ourselves for answers to questions that can be only answered within. An example would be students who major in a subject not because it interested them, but because they read an article that said people in that field can make money. Life is long and if you are not into what you are doing for a living, it can be very long indeed.

Find what you're passionate about and you've found life's sweet spot.

Thanks for sharing this.. and good luck on your job quest.
It was indeed a good quote...
Life has its challenges, but this is what happens when we share our thoughts and stories. Sometimes it touches someone at a point of need.
I am sure your own story has helped some people, which is the real aim of all our stories, right?
