Life Without Limits

Checked this book out from the library after I saw his video on YouTube.

Here is a quote from page 19:

"There's a wonderful truth that's so central to living.  I find it extraordinary that schools do not teach it.  The essential truth is this:  Each of us has some gift -- a talent, a skill, a craft, a knack --- that give us pleasure and engages us, and the path to our happiness often lies within that gift.
     If you are still searching, still trying to figure out where you fit in and what fulfills you, I suggest you do a self-assessment.  Sit down with a pen and paper or at a computer and make a list of your favorite activities.  What do you find yourself drawn to do?  What can you spend hours doing, losing track of time and place, and still want to do again and again?  Now, what is it that other people see in you?  Do they compliment your talent for organization or your analytical skills?  If you're not really sure what others see in you, ask your family and friends what they think you are best at.
     These are the clues to finding your life's path, a path that lies secreted within you.  We all arrive on this earth naked and full of promise.  We come packed with presents waiting to be opened.  When you find something that so fully engages you that you would do it for free all day every day, then you are on course.  When you find someone who is willing to pay you for it, then you have a career."
