“Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it … Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.”
Spot on, Darius!
And Steve Jobs summed it up concisely: the human race is made up of ORDINARY people, like you and me. Ordinary people with extraordinary abilities and talents — abilities that has to be honed and developed.
Honing and developing talents and skills are hard work.
There are no carbon copy-people. Some ideologies and regimes try to enforce it. We are all unique.
But, as Darius pointed out, that doesn’t mean everyone can become a astronaut. But that’s fine.
What can further help one to “find one’s thing” is:
- Read wider (MUCH wider than your present field of work — I’m talking about nonfiction)
- Find a mentor(s)
- Be brave. Be bold. Prepare to fail and fail again. Giving up is not an option. Believe. But make a new plan each time, a better plan.
And, “create your thing” for the world around you!
