How to figure out what to do with your life
In this episode, I explore whether it’s worth stepping backward in order to move forward. I ended up in that position when I suffered a career blow that resulted in a demotion and pay cut.
What happens to us doesn’t determine the value we bring to the world. What meaning we assign that which happens to us is what determines the value we bring the world.
So, if you’re stuck in a place in life where you don’t want to be, where you find yourself burying your head under a blanket instead of rising with joy on your heart to greet the day, understand that it’s okay and more often than not, imperative to take that step backwards in order to move yourself towards your greater purpose in life. Don’t be afraid to step outside of what you always assumed your life should be to find something new.
I think it’s also important to say here that purpose has more to do with meaning than with circumstance. If I had been more aware of this, I could’ve ultimately found purpose in my old position by turning my attention to things within in that could make a difference. But, life had other plans. It won’t always. So, that’s why it’s important for me to say this to anyone who may feel less than thrilled in their current circumstance: Realize that wherever you are in your life, you can find purpose.
