Where to look when you… want success
To be successful throughout your entire work life — which will likely span numerous jobs, multiple industries, and wholly different careers — it all comes down to exactly what Mukunda said: knowing yourself. And knowing yourself, in terms of achieving what you want in life, means being aware of your strengths.
— Peter Drucker, Management Challenges for the 21st century
Stories aren't perfect pictures of the world, but they allow us to succeed for this very reason. They can keep us going and become prophecy. You weren't "born" to do anything in particular, but when your story says you were "born" to do something, you perform better and persist.
After all, it's your destiny.
