Make meaningful use of everything you are

A friend of mine who is a youth development consultant has this great question he asks the students:

How much of yourself, percentage wise, are you able to bring to this activity?

It’s a powerful filter for kids to use in any endeavor they pursue. Because it challenges them to search for places where they don’t have to keep their intellect on hold or their personality in check. 

Where their authentic voice can take flight and travel. Where they can carve out a special space in the world and operate at their highest point of contribution. 

It’s actually a very rare thing, both for kids and adults. Not everybody is fortunate enough to find venues where they can bring a hundred percent of themselves. In fact, it’s hard to believe it when somebody even asks you to be yourself. 

But it is possible. It does happen. The rare opportunity to make meaningful use of everything we are is out there for each of us to find. 

And when we do, we’re home. Every molecule in the universe will feel like it’s in its right place. 

How much of yourself, percentage wise, are you able to bring? 

Keep asking yourself this simple question. And trust that it will be enough to get the love you need.


Is there a ball and chain in the place where your mind’s wings should have grown?
