We hesitate at the idea that we used to draw or play an instrument or loved numbers. We wave it off as childish and unpromising as a career, never considering how powerful these inclinations are in manifesting our talents and a potentially great life. Often times, when you hear stories of people making drastic career changes, it usually falls into this category of returning to their inclinations and bringing them back to life."
This quote is pulled from an article on 99U called "The Career Compass: 10 Essential Ideas for Navigating the New Career Landscape." What I love about this passage is that it illustrates the simple truth in that we are born with unique curiosities, an innate pre-disposition toward certain skills and activities. It's no accident, and it is a waste to not pay attention to those cues as we construct our life's path.
Re-connecting with who we've always been, and combining that essence with the experience, skills, truth and talent we've gained across our lifetime is a powerful way to live full of our potential today.
