The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “If a man hasn’t discovered something he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.”
Strong words. But to lead, you have to understand what matters in your own life.
If you’re having trouble finding your purpose or setting a course for your, ask yourself:
What makes me sing? That’s what brings you joy.
What makes me cry? That’s what you care about.
What makes me dream? That’s what sparks your imagination.
What makes me excel? That’s what makes you strong.
What makes me different? That’s your path to creativity, solving problems and helping others.
