What were you born to do? Is there even such a thing as being born to do something? How can you know for certain? At what point along the journey do you receive confirmations about your gifts, purpose, or calling? How can we have clarity about the answers to these questions?
These questions confound most of us at some point in our lives; yet, I’m convinced that no two answers are exactly the same. This is because no two people ever see the world exactly the same way.
Recently, I had the pleasure of sitting with Shannon Mannon, Co-Founder of 3-Minute Storyteller and its intern and filmmaker Emily Kait Hunter to explore some of these same questions. Shannon and Emily came with open hearts and minds; they simply let me have my way. It was clear to me that they were aligned and committed to the integrity of something larger at work. I felt at ease and naturally, our time together went well past three minutes.
The mission of 3-Minute Storyteller is to “share stories of connection from the people and organizations who do it best. To inspire everyone to understand how stories connect us and move us.” It is in this spirit of connection and community that I share. It is my hope that these three minutes resonate with those who seek answers to some of these same questions, who wish to connect with their gifts and purpose, ultimately with their highest self. Perhaps you are among them?
Take a look. Have a listen. Give it a thumbs-up. Share it. Be Inspired! Then come on back and share your thoughts or answers. I love when you talk to me!
