“To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end of life.”

–     Baruch Spinoza (1632 – 1677), Dutch philosopher, as quoted in the 2001 Gallup / Buckingham / Clifton classic book, “Now, Discover Your Strengths”

I’m working with a company who believes in Strengths-Based Leadership as much as I do.  That’s joyful time spent, let me tell you!

It got me thinking…

Buckingham and Clifton were right, 18 years ago, and they’re right today, in both the macro and micro senses.

Honoring who we are — the wiring God put in us — and diligently becoming who we’re capable of becoming is the only.  Yes, I actually finished that sentence.  It’s the “only.”  It’s difficult for others to knock us off course, and it’s easy for us to make progress when we’re focused on those two variables.

And, more often than not, we’ll make a difference…
