The Good Life Project

Dolly Parton once said, “Find out who you are and do it on purpose.” You and I both know that this is an elegant call to greatness.

Mediocrity is easy. Digging to your deepest depths to discover who you are and doing your big work in the world is hard.

It means you have to step out of your comfort zone, often defy conventional wisdom and the status quo, and forge ahead with courage. It means you’re probably going to piss more than a few people off. It means that much of the time you’ll feel scared –- shitless, actually.

Anything worth doing, anything epic, will bring up fear.

Do it anyway.

I’m all for finding the joy in the most banal moments. Life is ultimately made up of millions of them. Let’s not take anything for granted here.

But deep down, at the core of your being, you know you’re supposed to do something meaningful. You know you were put here, at this time on earth, for a specific purpose.

Maybe it’s to win a Nobel Peace Prize, climb Mount Kilimanjaro or discover a cure for cancer. Perhaps it’s to design a new widget, write a new song, plant a garden, mentor a young person or save a baby white seal.

However you are called, you and I both know you have a contribution to make.

What are you waiting for?
