Relax in the knowing™
As a little girl, I’d often watch award shows, admiring how the women proudly walked the red carpet on their way to being admired and recognized for their work. I’d think, “Wow, it must be amazing to ‘be someone’.” I was enchanted by how happy, confident and fulfilled they looked, as they were being praised by millions of people for their work.
Admittedly, this idea of success and celebrity status that I had as a little girl carried over when I began pursuing a career in my twenties. While I did not choose the entertainment business or feel the need to be recognized my millions of people, per se, I did desire to feel like “someone” in my work — to be well-known, admired and valued.

It is at the intersection of these two stories that you have the opportunity to build a life, moment by moment, of meaning, happiness and fulfillment. And a significant portion of these moments is spent working.
In fact, you’ll spend around one hundred and fifty thousand hours of your life either working, thinking about work, or planning and striving for the next step. That’s decades of your life in search of purpose and fulfillment just in your business or job alone.
That means, if you desire to feel genuinely happy in and with your life — to feel like “someone” — you must be clear on who you are, what you do and how you uniquely make an impact in the world. You also must find a deeper connection with — not just your own goals, desires and wishes for your work — but also God’s goals, desires and wishes for you.
