Sharing some thoughts from Ozan Varol from one of his weekly emails, as it aligns with conversations I have with many of my clients:
"Most people go through life walking through the most convenient door. We follow the path of least resistance and get pulled around by strings we didn’t attach. We tell ourselves, 'Sure, I could do that job. Sure, I could major in that program. Sure, I could contort myself to fit through that tiny door that someone else created.' But those doors may not be the best ones for you. There’s immense power in intentionally creating and opening the doors that accommodate you—instead of shrinking yourself in order to squeeze through whatever door happens to be there. That, in turn, requires you to get clear on the answer to a seemingly simple question.
❔What do you want? What do you really want?❔
Stare at that question for as long as you need. Deciding what you want can be the hardest thing, particularly if you’ve spent your life—as most of us do—being compelled to go along with the decisions that others have made. Once you’ve decided what you want from life, go off-menu. Ask for it. Create it. Because the best things in life aren’t on the menu."
