Sometimes other people say things so much better than we ever could.
This is often the case for myself and so I have collected words I wish I had written but never could have on many of the topics that spiral around and are deeply connected to this hard to get a hold of notion of sorting out one’s niche and role in the world.
I’ve divided them into the following categories.
On The Shortness of Life and Urgency of Finding Your Role – Quotes the encourage you to live now, to stop putting off the things you are drawn to do.
On Being Yourself – Quotes to inspire you to find your voice, let your freak flag fly a bit and finding a portion more comfort in your own skin.
On Niching as Art – Quotes that came from my realization that finding your niche is more than just ‘identifying a target market’. It’s also about what you want to give and how you want to give it.
On Perseverance – Quotes on the importance of steadfastness and tenacity. Affirmation that just because you haven’t succeeded yet, doesn’t mean you won’t.
On The Relationship Between Wounds, Suffering and Finding Our Role – Quotes affirming that there is meaning in the struggles and hardships you’ve endured in your life and that your deepest wounds might just be one of the most timeworn and reliable doorways into finding your truest niche.
On Proceeding as If You Were Needed – Quotes to remind you that your presence in the world matters.
On Being of Service to Something Bigger Than Yourself – Quotes about the power of connecting to some deeper sense of purpose.
