Finding Inspiration And Identifying Passions By Looking Back On What You Wanted To Be As A Child
Imagine, if you will. A city. Not just any city. A city like no other. A city in which its inhabitants all grew up to be exactly what they said they wanted to be when they were six years old…
You’re traveling through another dimension, on a journey into a wondrous land whose borders extend as far as the imagination. Your next stop, the Kindergarten Zone!
But seriously, cheesy parody aside, how would a city function with only thousands of princesses, firefighters, and wizards? How will you eat with nothing but teachers, doctors, and dancers?
Yes, it’s ludicrous, but… you can learn much by having a conversation with your younger self. For most kids, their answer to “what I wanna be when I grow up” reflects how they see the world and their future—wide open.
I’m not telling you to quit your job and become a firefighter. Instead, talk to your inner child and see what you can learn about yourself.
