We generally don’t take enough time to discover our true value. In terms of what we’re best at. In what ways we can make the most impact in the world.
Too many of us settle for mediocrity. The invitation to be mediocre is compelling. And it is aided by endless forms of entertainment.
On the other side of the spectrum, there are super-ambitious people who chase worldly success as a way of overcompensating for their insecurities.
Finding your true path is an exercise in mindfulness. It requires regular withdrawals from the world, so we’ll know what to bring to the world. We find who we are in silence and solitude, and we present our true self as a gift to the world.
We also become like sandpaper. When we rub up against other people we can help shape culture.
