It’s time for each of us to lead with our purpose and connect it with that of others.
Day #22 of Sanity
Every great business idea is born from a need or opportunity. It happens when someone wakes up to their purpose and wants to bring it to the world. That dreamer who finds purpose in wanting to start a new restaurant to delight others with their delicacies, for example, goes out into the world, finds the investment needed, builds a community of customers, hires a team of people, and finds a location where people can come and enjoy it.
As more and more people become aware of their own purpose, they will want to work for an organization that shares their values. Purpose is becoming increasingly important in business as people look to work for or with purpose-driven organizations, ones that are simple to articulate and embrace. People are openly sharing on online forums the pros and cons of working for an organization and our trust is growing in each other. The irony is that we have not always been given the tools to trust ourselves deeply. And we have so much in our disposal if we stopped following the crowd and looked inside and remembered what sparks us.
“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work but rather, teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea,” wrote Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the French aviator and author of The Little Prince (1943).
- Do I know why I am here?
- What do I dream of for me and the world?
- How do I sabotage myself?
- When do i give myself permission to unleash my dream?
- What sparks me?
- How do I integrate it into my day-to-day life?
