Some wise person (I don't remember who) said: "If you find your piece in the puzzle, you enable 10,000 others to find theirs."
Thus, identifying and acting on your purpose, is not only a nice-to-do, but a MUST-DO. You owe it to the world. I believe we're obligated to journey into our best self. This is why studying flourishing is so important - why I LOVE me some PP (positive psychology).
This sense of responsibility in the jigsaw helps motivate me to actually take care of myself. Having helped thousands of women launch their businesses, one of the biggest challenges we work on is self-care. If you don't take care of YOU, how can you fully realize your potential?
As I gulp down the NyQuil, I'm taking some of my own medicine. More on this later.
