We are taught that a major factor in being successful is going out into the world and finding your passion. Another major factor is taking the time to find your true self.
The theory goes like this: If you find what is right for you, by figuring out what you want and who you are, then you can naturally fit into a path that not only leads you to be successful, but you’ll be happy at what you’re doing. We believe this myth so adamantly that we spend a lot of our time searching for some inner self to find our “truth” about who we are so we can ultimately find the “right” job, the “right” career, the “right” anything.
In actuality, becoming Independent Enough to develop characteristics and skills that challenge you to grow into who you need to become in different situations helps more towards being successful than any search for your true self.
