An email I received today from an executive coach was signed with a quote at the bottom:
“Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says, ‘This is the real me,’ and when you have found that attitude, follow it.” William James
Its in the the same vein as Joseph Campbell’s questions about finding what works for us as individuals.
Easier said than done and its worth searching for those things that allow you to be really you – I mean allow me to be as much really me as I can be. You do need to find you first. I’m working on that part: I am finding me, so far so good… (admittedly I am a little lost at times).
