Bestelling author, award winning anthropologist, filmmaker, photographer, and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, Wade Davis inspired us on Career Buzz. It’s worth a listen if you missed it. He said, “The greatest creative challenge is the struggle to be the architect of your own life… be patient. Do not compromise. Give your destiny time to find you.” And how do you allow destiny to find you? “If you place yourself in situations where there is no choice but to move forward, no option but success, you create a momentum that in the end propels you to new levels of experience and engagement that would have seemed beyond reach only years before…. Creativity is a consequence of activity, not the cause or motivation of one’s actions.”
CareerCycles asks: What if you simply chose to believe: ‘I have faith in my ability to creatively respond to new challenges.’ With that faith, or even behaving as if you had it, what new and enticing career and life challenge do you want to pursue?
