When you are trying to achieve something great, dig deep to truly understand your purpose and why you are doing what you are doing.
My favorite book - Man's Search for Meaning talks about this. I gravitate towards biographies and discussions where people are hunting for the meaning of life and their presence. There is an honesty and vulnerability about it that feels raw and universal.
Not everyone can identify their why. It is a privilege to be able to know your why.
You can tell someone that has a clear purpose.
It shows in their eyes, in the way they walk, in the calm assertiveness - in the way they are able to be vulnerable and uninterested in the trivial.
Everyone deserves to have such a clear why.
I have the urge to find a way to make that easy to do. I haven't found it yet but I have been digging around for ideas. The one thing I found helps with this is pain. Pain and suffering seem to clear the clutter. That's why I am a fan of stoicism and Buddhism. Getting comfortable and seeking pain is emerging as the way.
Could pain be the way to the why?
