“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.'”
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
You wake up tomorrow and say ‘I want to be a street sweeper because that’s what will truly make me happy.’ Would your partner, family, friends or even your house mate accept this decision?
Where do you draw the line between appeasing your personal stakeholders and appeasing yourself?
A wise man once told me that the internal happiness of doing something you love will always win over financial rewards.
So I ask, what is stopping you?
