People like to feel important, this is true, but not everyone goes about it in an inspired way. Trying to please others to find meaning for ourselves is a trap because A) we can never please everyone, B) ego-centered people mete out just enough attention to keep minions scrambling, and C) time and effort are stolen from our true purpose.

No matter how much attention we receive from others, it will never be enough. We will always need more! Eventually we learn to trick people into dancing to please us, and keep the cycle going.

Those who understand their purpose step out of ego, see this energy-stealing game for what it is, and avoid it. Purpose-driven people are genuine in their praise, attention, and respect.

Today I place a hand over my heart and ask, "What is my purpose? What am I really here to do?"

We all have a cute little goat like this inside, it's okay to remember, and say "no thanks, sorry, I am overcommitted and need to take a break," or the perennial favorite, "I don't feel called to do that." The magic of life happens when we align with our purpose, rather than someone else's. Like initiating the launch sequence for that rocket to our dreams.
