Don’t Find Yourself. Create Yourself.

Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
– George Bernard Shaw

This is so true.

It’s ridiculous to think each of us has just one perfect passion in life, or that there is only one thing that we’re on this planet to do.

Finding yourself or finding your passion is a misnomer. You can find a passion or a version of yourself, but ultimately you have to create the person you want to be. You have to pursue something deeply before you know if it’s right for you.

If we’re lucky, each of us will have many things we’re passionate about in our lifetimes.

Finding yourself is the result of working hard, and creating the person and the life you want. Don’t worry about getting it right, just worry about doing interesting, important, epic, valuable work. The work will lead you.

Don't Find Yourself. Create Yourself.

Don’t Find Yourself. Create Yourself.
