In the sometimes desperate, fearful shoving and striving of getting what you want, it’s all too easy to find yourself in a life whose form is quite far from what is fulfilling, or alive, or meaningful, or that allows your unique contribution to come forward.
You may even find that what you thought you wanted, that which you’ve been pursuing with so much effort, turns out to not be what you wanted at all.
Perhaps you’ll only notice then when you find out how far from yourself you are living.
So as well as asking how to get what you want, and working towards that, you could also ask what kind of person you want to be.
This is not a question many people are taking on with seriousness.
And what could come if you pursued that with a sincerity, vigour, and dedication equal to your other projects?
