Steve Pavlina about creative self-expression



Listen to this very good podcast by Steve Pavlina about creative self-expression, divided into four parts:
---
1) Body (physical needs) — what must you do?
2) Mind (talents and skills) — what can you do?
3) Heart (passion and desire) — what do you want to do?
4) Spirit (purpose and contribution) — what should you do?

Check out the podcast or read the article it's based on.

Here is Steve's description of the podcast:
"Many people have been socially conditioned to believe that a career or job should be chosen based how well it pays and how qualified you are to hold it. This podcast will explain why that approach is completely backwards.

Paradoxically by selecting a career based on money and skills, your financial and career results will be but a pale shadow of your potential. And even worse than that, you will virtually guarantee long-term unhappiness. Going to work each day will become something you only do because you have to, not because you want to, and staying motivated will be very, very hard.

The path for conscious human beings is to focus first and foremost on joyful, creative self-expression. That is far more important than money, skill fit, or even contribution to others. Your own creativity is the very mechanism by which you’ll achieve everything else you could possibly want — including financial abundance, superior talent, long-term fulfillment, and meaningful contribution."
