Careers – The following quote by William Faulkner should remind new graduates and professionals of the importance of pursuing your passion when choosing an endeavor or vocation.
“Clocks slay time… time is dead as long as it is being clicked off by little wheels; only when the clock stops does time come to life.” – William Faulkner
When we love what we do, we aren’t trying to keep track of time. We are consumed in the activities of the moment, and caught up in making our unique, exciting adventure a success.
Cowardice is the tendency to hold back from being able to fully give of yourself to the world.
A lot of people hate having to go to their jobs each morning and it seriously affects their quality of life. Daily they suppress their professional aspirations in exchange for a steady paycheck.
Certainly, there is nothing wrong with financial responsibility and taking care of our family. However, to attain individual fulfillment and to unleash our potential, we must never settle for anything less than to pursue with abandon what we were truly born to do. No outstanding company, no business, no organization was built by the timid at heart.
