The past few months of my life have been quite interesting: filled with introspection, reflection, and positive changes. I’ve also read quite a few books, some extremely helpful while others, often highly recommended and popular, an utter waste of time. However, it is through this process of self-evaluation and personal growth that I find opportunities really present their selves; this process helps you guide your energy where it belongs. It helps you find yourself and rediscover your true spirit. I have never felt this certain of what I want to achieve in life and how I will achieve it. There’s no more hesitation; I know what needs to be done, for I have found my true self.
During this time I’ve read and heard a lot about the importance of passion and doing what you love. But now I understand that passion and success can only come when you love what you do, no matter what it is. The key is to find how to love what you do. If I were to do what I love, I’d be building sand castles with my son, playing in the ocean’s best waves, hanging out in beach resorts with my family, and do a whole lot of other activities like rock climbing and going to Operas in Italy with my wife. However, this isn’t the secret to success or how success is achieved – this is the outcome of success.
Today I stand a different man. The man I was meant to be and a man that is heading in the right direction.
