One of my favorite quotes is by the late author and motivational speaker, Dr. Wayne Dyer, who said, “Don’t die with your music still in you”.
The first time I heard that quote, I was in the midst of a divorce. I was searching for the next steps in my life. I realized it was a moment in time when I could actually regroup and get on the road I was meant to travel.
I have always known that there was “something” I was supposed to do with my life. I felt it in my bones. I just could not figure out how to go about finding my true calling. I spoke to many people and read many books. Oddly enough, there were numerous people in my life who actually tried to convince me that most of us are essentially worker bees who are never really meant to make a difference in any meaningful way. I suppose for the worker bees, it is comforting to believe that is true. It makes them feel better about the drudgery that is their life.
I never once believed it.
