I like this paragraph from Bill Plotkin’s book Soulcraft. I used it to close a two-day team retreat that I was hosting last week.
“The gift you carry for others is not an attempt to save the world but to fully belong to it. It’s not possible to save the world by trying to save it. You need to find what is genuinely yours to offer the world before you can make it a better place. Discovering your unique gift to bring to your community is your greatest opportunity and challenge. The offering of that gift, your true self, is the most you can do to love and serve the world. And, it is all the world needs.”
