These are beautiful words. When I think of individuals who take up a mission, who describe the purpose of what they do and are passionate about something they do I’m happy for them. To me, they have found something valuable. Something that helps them focus and pursue something they find worthy to pursue.
It’s something entirely different when people ask themselves what their mission in life is when they search for a purpose or wonder what to be passionate about. They are likely to find themselves stuck. In between a multitude of choices they may end up endlessly searching for an answer instead of investing in answering the questions through their action.
It is not possible to replace experience with thinking.
A reflection process may help to uncover the existing experience and highlight it adequately.
The next step still is a leap into the unknown.
