Perhaps you're doing something because you've decided it's a good career choice, a noble cause, a higher purpose, or just because you've always done it? You'd be crazy to give it up. You'd let everyone down. Right?
Do you spend time with people only because you work with them, they've been friends forever, they're family, or they'd be upset if you didn't?
If you'd like to inject some life into your life ask “Who and what truly excites and inspires me?” and choose that.
What if you were excited and inspired by what you did everyday and everyone around you? Would your work and life ever be hard or tiresome again?
What amazing contribution could you be to the planet, by doing wholeheartedly what you love, rather than half-heartedly what you think you should?
