“The best way to predict your future is to create it.” Abraham Lincoln
Soul Work is the absolute best use of your passions, talents and purpose. So before you go forward with this installment, go back and review the work you have done so far in this series. A vision is how things will look in the future. For our purposes today, you should focus on how you would like you career to unfold in the future self in the future.
I believe that almost all people go to work hoping to make a difference, but often wind up discouraged when they ultimately cannot see how their work impacts the bigger picture. At the end of the day, a career should more than simply a paycheck; it should be something that leaves one with a sense of satisfaction. Your vision of Soul Work should connect what you love with what you do.
