What a honour! I’ve been nominated Charity sHero for my commitment to helping people reach fulfillment through careers in charities.
What makes me really proud is being mentioned along with noble sHeroes that relentlessly make a positive impact in the world, every single day. Not only with their work, but also with their own nature, inspiring others through their own lives.
It’s no secret that I come from an “extensive” (to say the least!) experience of feeling trapped in the wrong career. A trap that was the direct result of not being able to see and recognise my natural talents.
My invite, as I mentioned in the short interview in this article, is to discover, embrace and find a way to express all that makes you, “you”. Because that’s exactly what the world needs.
As a human being, we’ve all been gifted with something that makes us unique.
And in that uniqueness lies our real power. And we must be able to express it through our own work, in fact when we don’t we feel disconnected at work, feel trapped in a rat race, just earning a salary.
But we’re meant to be and do and give and get way more than that.
Working in the third sector means you wake up proud of yourself every morning, knowing that your time, your expertise and your own nature are making a positive impact in the world. You feel you worth. You live a meaningful life, you don’t just wait for the weekend and holidays to feel alive.
After all, what we all want and need is feeling alive, feeling we’re leaving a positive legacy, feeling that someone is grateful for the fact that we exist.
If we don't make use of our own gifts, we're impeding others to benefit from our own value. Click To TweetHow sad is this? And it’s also a bit selfish, isn’t it?
Think about Beethoven… what if he never discovered his own talent?
How sad would the world have been without his eternal music?
And how sad would have been if he stopped when he became deaf because “Well, you know, what can I do now, at my age, I’ve lost my main talent…” and so on.
Luckily, he hadn’t lost his resilience despite the huge challenge he had to face. And that’s why today we celebrate his greatness, not only as Composer but above all as Man.
Difficulties and challenges are there for us to grow.
Let’s not waste them, don’t get stopped by them, don’t let our weakness to keep us trapped in a rat race. We deserve way more than that, we’re capable of much more than that, we’re just one step back from that.
Let’s prove it. I can guarantee you, you’ll love it!
