Single Purpose: do what you are best at, spark fires
Two weeks ago, I went on a journey with my closest friend to reflect on our lives. I set out with many questions; however, the epiphany came to me in rather unexpected ways.
My buddy Chris and I talked a lot about living in the moment and of letting-go. We dwelled on the idea of having a purpose without ego.
I walked away with the concept of having a single purpose in life: do what we are best at doing and enjoy it.
Purpose without Ego #
In my case, he suggested that I should align my motivations behind being a connector and continue to be a “fire starter.”
The important part was to be cognizant of not letting the expectation of being a “connector” define my identity.
Let go in expectations, control, ego-centric motivations
What that meant to me was to focus on the personal fulfillment and enjoy being myself; ie. live in the moment and not live by the result.
Be Excited about Reality #
The nuance was hard to grasp. After having thought about it for the past couple of days, I finally understood. I’m excited to apply this new mentality.
Chris gave me this food for thought:
Enjoy the rush of life, and let go at the peak of the roller coaster
It does not matter where I end up.
