I’m very encouraged by this Words of Wisdom video from Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage!
While speaking at Bennington College, Peter encouraged to the students to discover and pursue their passions and dreams right now. He himself was stuck with a job that didn’t give him purpose, but decided at the age of 29 to be a full-time actor. There were bumps and bruises along the way, but look at him now! He’s doing incredibly well, but he admitted kind of wished he hadn’t waited so long to do what he loved.
Point blank, you shouldn’t wait on ANYTHING or ANYONE to start finding your purpose and pursuing it. You don’t need anybody’s approval or permission. And we all know that you don’t need nor will you find the perfect moment to start. You may never be completely 100% “ready,” but get going anyway!
Now granted, we don’t all find our life purpose at a young age. It may take a good long while, and that’s okay. But, once you do find it, you owe it to yourself to pursue it. Depending on your schedule, do what you can do, but at least get started.
