Here’s a little secret: aligning with your purpose is a surefire way to make sure you’re always growing. Your purpose isn’t necessarily the goal of your specific role. It’s something deeper that ignites a sense of intrinsic value, or the sense that the work you’re doing has inherent worth.
As long as we are putting energy toward something bigger than ourself and bigger for the world, the hustle is easy. So, you need to find greater meaning in the day-to-day grind. Because when you tap into that meaning or purpose, you’ll find that you’re over-the-moon about the idea of taking on a challenging project or signing up for a new class.
So embrace purpose – The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” –
