Passion & Purpose

“There is no passion to be found playing small, in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” – Nelson Mandela

Passion and purpose are interlinked. And they come from the gifts or talents that you have – those things that you take for granted as being so simple. Playing small means that we aren’t using those talents to their full capability. Sort of like singing in the shower, but not in the choir. If you have a beautiful voice you should be sharing it with others, even though you discount your talent to yourself. That is the fear talking. I am really getting in touch with the thought that anywhere I have resistance, I have fear that I need to take out hiding and look at. Why am I afraid, whats the worst that could happen, and just do it anyway.
