�Where your talents and the needs of the world overlap, there lies your vocation� - Aristotle


�Where your talents and the needs of the world overlap, there lies your vocation� - Aristotle


Our purpose is found in service to something larger


�Where your talents and the needs of the world overlap, there lies your vocation�

Mr. Aristotle


But first we need to unpack this

TALENT word


The dictionary is full of SH$T.


We have 
 allowed 
 talent to 
 become 
 a myth of 
 inherent
 genius.


Talent is not skill!


?


Talent is a predisposition for a task to bring us pleasure.


Talent is not to be confused with skill!
 Focus on what feeds you.


Talents Thought Starters What is fun and easy for you but considered challenging by others? When do you feel most alive? What tasks or activities feed you? When do you go into “the zone” 
 or a state of flow?


World’s Great Needs
 Thought Starters What issues in the world make you yearn to take action? What causes you to feel a deep sadness? What moves you to tears? What unsolvable problems are you drawn to solve?


�Where your talents and the needs of the world overlap, there lies your vocation�

Mr. Aristotle


“To love people and assist them in creating a life of meaning.” “Craft things with my hands that help people to see clearly.” “To nurture and bring safety to the inner child we all carry within us.” “To awaken a greater compassion, tenderness and respect for ourselves, nature, this beautiful planet and all the things in it. When love takes over, which is inevitable with such awareness, and replaces the fear which seems to dominate much of how our lives & societies operate, then can true transformation & healing take place, within ourselves, & the world at large.”

“To show the world the need for compassion to all life.”


“Before you tell your life what you intend to do with it, listen for what it intends to do with you” – Parker J. Palmer, Let Your Life Speak

EVERY interaction
