As you tailor your life to your unique personal needs, interests and desires while also devoting yourself to what your heart most sincerely yearns to give, I have come across one strategy you are wise to avoid at all costs.
This is it: Do not, under any circumstances, couch your personal needs, interests and desires inside of your aspirations to change our world for the better. It isn’t that much different than signing up for a college course because you’re sexually attracted to someone who’s also taking the class. When asked about why you’re taking ancient Middle Eastern art, you espouse the significance of studying history and art as a means of understanding yourself and today’s market trends.
In other words, do not allow your more complex and considerate navigation of our world and your professional life to be circumvented by your hidden—or perhaps not so hidden—personal needs, interests and desires. When this happens, the noble and dignified drive to positively influence our world becomes hijacked by your self-centered preferences.—Rob MacNamara – https://tendirections.com/cultivating-influence/
