"Instead of wondering where your next vacation is, set up a life you don't need to escape from" - Seth Godin
The skill of possibility plays with the idea of being able to see that things could be better.
By being able to see that things could be better, you will always be motivated to take the next step and advance in your journey to reach a particular goal.
Life can be unpredictable, however, by truly believing you can be better, it will be hard to settle down and extinguish growth.
You are unique. The skills of practical empathy allows one to understand that people don’t want what you want and have a different voice in their head to you, you cannot please everyone.
Living with this mentality will ignite growth. Letting go of trying to please everyone is the first step to improving on your craft.
No one has ever done it, it cannot be done. Let go.
"I have not failed, I have just found 10,000 ways that won't work" - Thomas Edison
There will always be a skill you have which you can financially profit or socially benefit from. The skill of learning how to learn allows yourself to be open to seeing that.
There are people that need to be served that aren't, and believe that you have the ability to do so, given the right work and effort. Failure can often camouflage success but knowing how to unveil what's hidden is a skill which takes practice.
