I believe the things we love to do are clues to what our purpose is in life. We all have things we love to do, things we developed at an early age.
The sad reality is most people have put off doing the things they really love to do for “someday” or maybe “one day.” The late Steve Jobs had a famous quote, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.”
Our greatness is best expressed when we love the things we do in life. When we are not expressing our gifts and talents, there is a part within us that feels stagnant, stifled and trapped. When we experience such emotions, it can:
- Affect us physically.
- Demotivate us.
- Lower our level of performance and effectiveness.
- Affect our mood and happiness.
