Returning to Rushmore
Do I matter? Does my work matter, or am I just expending a lot of energy to keep myself looking important and industrious? If you're a high achiever you may be afraid of the answers to these hard questions, but seeing clearly the ways in which you have sought purpose in your life is the real key to professional success and personal fulfillment. Leadership expert Thomas DeLong begins this chapter with a deeply personal and inspiring story about taking his young daughter to see Mount Rushmore--and the questions that experience raised about his own sense of significance in life. He then offers six catalyzing steps you can follow to sustain you on your journey toward fulfilling your potential. In short, if you can resist the tendency to be controlled by your anxieties, you'll find that life--and work--can be an endless adventure of possibilities. Through self-awareness, and with a support network to help you through the rough spots, you can learn to fly without a net and, ultimately, find greater meaning and satisfaction in every challenge you undertake. This chapter was originally published as Chapter 14 of "Flying Without a Net: Turn Fear of Change into Fuel for Success."
