Quote of the day: mission

We’re not born with unlimited choices.  We cannot be anything we want to be.  We come into this world with a specific, personal destiny. We have a job to do, a calling to enact, a self to become. We are who we are from the cradle, and we’re stuck with it.   Our job in this lifetime is not to shape ourselves into some ideal we imagine we ought to be, but to find out who we already are and become it.   If we were born to paint, it’s our job to become a painter.   If we were born to raise and nurture children, it’s our job to become a mother.   If we were born to overthrow the order of ignorance and injustice of the world, it’s our job to realize it and get down to business.

The War of Art by Steven Pressfield and Shawn Coyne
