Dig deep into your past. Once you discover your own pain you’ll realize what your purpose is!
We also discussed career changes. Dr. Tyus explained how money doesn’t produce happiness, and that people need to spend time in self-discovery. He also advised that you should follow your gift and passion. What are you good at? What do you like to do? That’s where success lies, and the paycheck will come after you discover yourself. He left us with the following nugget of wisdom…
What you hate is often something that you’re supposed to solve. People often try to say, “What am I supposed to do in life?” And some of it is attached to what you can’t stand. What urks you. What messes with your spirit. And that is why God has called you to have that fiery passion because you have to have that in order to help solve it.
