Today I saw a quote that touched me. Dave Grohl once said, “No one is you and that is your power.”
Very true. The strongest aspect of your résumé is you. Your thoughts. Your experiences. Your imagination.
You are the only person who has travelled your specific journey. And on the way, you saw things and heard things and learned things. You met people who helped you grow. Who challenged you. Who questioned you. Who loved you. And all those experiences made you see life a certain way.
Your viewpoint, when partnered with creativity, could find answers. Create inventions. Cultivate solutions. Inspire others.
So the moment you feel lost, and wonder what your purpose is, just look in the mirror. Your purpose is you.
As John W. Gardner once said, “True happiness involves the full use of one’s power and talents.”
Use your power. The world is waiting for all the epic things you will do with it.
