S2-E33 – What the world needs is people who have come alive.

Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
~Howard Thurman

Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. – What the world needs is more people with passion that act on that passion and come alive to succeed.

Howard Thurman has probably heard the same thing I have heard. Ask yourself what the world needs and you will be successful. He doesn’t necessarily agree with this. Why? Because if you just try to do what others want, you will eventually not be willing to do it any longer. As soon as the joy runs out, as soon as you stop believing that the world is right about what they want or as soon as you stop believing in the same thing, you will quit. You will not have the passion it takes to keep that goal alive.

What Thurman is saying is to ask yourself what makes you come alive. What is your passion. Passion makes us come alive. It makes us get excited about things. When you find your passion, what it is that makes you come alive, then go and do that.

It reminds me of a sign I saw recently on Facebook – If you think about something day in and day out, with every waking moment, and it makes you happy, You should be doing that!

That’s the same thought that Thurman has here. Don’t worry about what everyone else wants or needs. Think about what makes you come alive! What makes you happy. Then go out and do that.

The world needs more people that have come alive. People that have come alive with a passion for something they believe in will do what it takes to succeed.
