This episode is based on a comment I made on Reddit this week that got a lot of attention and feedback from other users. Knowing that I touched on a topic that would be important to you too, I decided to address it here on the show.
What’s Keeping You From What You Really Want?
Here was the original question by Reddit User TheLandBeforeGrimes:
People of Reddit who have found your passion/career path after being lost for years, what finally clicked? How did you figure out what you wanted to do?
And my answer:
For me it was realizing that nothing I could do or accomplish would ever make me feel okay about myself if I didn’t feel okay about myself. I would always be able to explain it away.
Once I realized that I was just okay and could be happy doing anything that was aligned with my core values and that I enjoyed, I had a lot of new possibilities and opportunities open up.
I no longer had to make decisions based on what I thought I might be good at, or what would make me happy, or what would make me successful and the most money.
I could just be happy with myself and do what I wanted, not for any result or specific outcome, but because I liked it and wanted to and enjoyed it.
There was a little more back and forth in the original thread, but I think this is a great place to start the conversation.
What’s your take?
