I think about this concept all the time. How do people come to do what they do with their lives? How do we decide when there is an endless amount of possibilities. But when I saw this video by Steven Spielberg I realized he is right. Sometimes we have to remember to Listen...it will come to us.
The hardest thing is to listen. What a great time to listen as we have been given the time to slow down and think. I'm going to tell you a story.
Kirsten always knew what she wanted to be. Being a Drama Teacher is something she knew in the 5th grade. She realized at a very young age that there was no other occupation that would make her happier and most days that is true :D She felt the pull, she listened and ultimately that is what she became. The sense of accomplishment on graduation day from BYU was an incredible feeling, one she will remember almost as clearly as the moment she got her first job as a Drama Teacher.
Travis didn't always know. Travis took a long time to figure out what he wanted to do. He found himself in endless jobs that didn't fulfill him and didn't recharge his battery. In fact he found that he was being drained by these jobs that didn't speak to him. One day Travis decided to finally listen to the little voice. The one that said, hey this is what you need to do. We then decided to really start this business and to really make Travis' dream come true and you will never guess how happy Travis is now! He feels fulfilled and all of his students recharge his battery every day. He feels like finally he is living his dream.
