so the word passion and the word fulfilling her two different things. And I think that where I get energy from is overcoming challenges that give me a sense of accomplishment. And so, in our lives, when we say happy, you know, happy is relative happy. Your dog gets run over or something. You're not going to be happy that day, right? And and God forbid. But that's but life happens that way. So but overcoming the setback, overcoming the oh, my gosh, we have a lot of work here, but at the end of it, you're like, Look what we accomplished. Look what we did together. Look at the communications and the stupid taxes we eliminated from this process, right? That's fulfilling. And it gives you energy. And I think that's where your passion really comes from. A healthy way. Yeah, I would agree with that assessment. I think that makes a ton of sense. Um, yeah. I mean, when it comes to these things, I really do think starting small is a really good choice for most people. What are small things that you could do right now? I like to dream big. I like to dream into the future That isn't for everybody. Um, some people need to look at what's happening in this moment right now that I could be doing more of that. I could be doing less of, um, that I could stop doing all together that I could start doing right now. Um, and it doesn't have to be big, and it doesn't have to be lofty. So in my Ted talk for me, it was, um, at that time I was doing improv and what my dad asked me, and I asked people, You know these questions as well. What? What do you like about that? So that was the thing I was doing that was bringing me great joy and fulfillment. And the question was, What about that is bringing me joy and fulfillment. And it was that I was sharing a moment of joy with people that I was bringing smiles to people's faces, that I was getting this, like, wash of good energy back in return. And so, you know, identifying that that was what was fulfilling their open up. The possibility that I could get more fulfillment by doing more of whatever that was it was not obvious to me immediate in any kind of immediate way. Um, how to translate that into my career path. And I think it can be misleading to say that. Just do more of that, and you'll get there eventually. Um, and at the same time, Uh, I do advocate that. Just do more of that thing that is fulfilling, and you will get there eventually. There's this simultaneous holding on and letting go holding on and letting go. Um, that happens. It it sounds very woo. I probably should get into some kind of spiritual practice at some point, but, uh, it's like, you know, it's this weird, like balance. So, uh, hold on to what you're passionate about. Let go. It may never happen. Um uh, be open the possibility of something else. Um, but actually, it's this intentionality of of wanting to simply create more of that shared level of joy and thinking about how could I just do more of that? How could I serve people more? How can I bring greater joy to more people? And as I continued doing that, the doors just sort of open opened up around me. You have to be noticing more than improv practice to notice the offers that show up. Um and so instead of now, that thing where somebody would be like, um, you should be in a rock band, I'd be like, Okay, that sounds fun. Uh, instead of that, I now had my eyes open to something really specific, so people weren't always coming to me, saying you should do this next. In fact, that kind of stopped for a little bit. Instead, I started saying to myself, Oh, you should do this next. And then that would open another set of possibilities. Uh, they're just taking that focus from okay, I'm just gonna do what people tell me or what's expected of me, too. I want to create more of this, Colonel of whatever this is. It's going to be different for you. Um, yeah, and then looking for ways to do more of that. It's like you went from waiting to be picked to. I pick myself and the problem with people telling you what you should do is they don't understand your backstory or your deep. Why the thing that really drives you, they see on a role in a moment. You should. You know, I get told Steve, you should You should jump off a cliff, and I get told that often, right? They're they're not understanding my deeper motivations. That won't serve me, sir. I'm picturing those conversations happening, and it's actually events. Gonna buy you a drink, Steve. You should jump off, Cliff. But I'm sure that's now 18. No, no, I've heard that, too, but but it's funny, but I think that's where where there's a point in our lives when we go. Oh, I can I can actually decide to choose the direction I'm gonna go. I'm the one that sees my word. I should position myself in a place that that is fulfilling that Will will build upon my unique values, right. Instead of waiting for someone to I wish someone would just recognize how valuable I am and pick me. Oh, my God. Yes, you cannot. If somebody isn't recognizing your value, I stand by this so strongly. Uh, there are two things that are happening. One is you're not providing the amount of value. Think you think you're providing the possibility and you should be open to noticing that because, um, that the possibility that being said. If it's happening over and over and over again with that same person and you know you're providing value and you can quantify that you're providing value, you are in the wrong business relationship and you should move along. I have a lot of folks that I have spoken with and worked with over the years who are in the in Go nowhere positions who have been told, uh, mhm, no countless times to being able to move upward. Um, and rather than being guided along that path, we're being told what's needed there. Just like we just, uh, please just get out of my, uh, That's just not you're not working together in that relationship. It's not worth investing further in that know where you are valued and then provide value there. Amen, Sister.
