How inspired are you by what you do for a living?

The beginning of a New Year is often a good time to reflect back on the previous year and typically attention is on all the things we have done as ‘human doings’ – the achievements, large and small, as well as the disappointments and bits in-between. What is often missed in the reflection process is who we are as ‘human beings’ and in particular, our inner self. The Indian philosopher Patanjali said “When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all of your thoughts break their bonds: your mind transcends limitatins, your consciousness expands in every direction and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive and you discover yourself t be a greater person than you ever dreamed yourself to be”. As you reflect on your past year, consider how inspired you are by what you do for a living and whether you want to make any changes, to bring all your faculties and talents come alive.
