The moment he explained the above, our minds were filled with questions. Edme-Alem further guided our discussion towards three points; Imagining or picturing what we envision, Feeling what we imagined and sharing our perspective. The first thing we were told to do was imagining how we would be after the RTD, actually feel it and share our perspectives on it, this was the test drive. Then the next questions were what life and success meant to us. we each shared our opinions and saw the diversity in our perspectives. Since we can only look for our purpose from within everyone’s answer was bound to differ from one another.
For the next question we were told to dig deep in our childhood and remember the things we were good at, at a young age and what we loved to do back then. Then to write our strengths and weaknesses we have now. This was aimed at finding our true self. As we shared those weaknesses and strengths we recognized the hints we got about our true personalities and our passion. And we were further led to assess our imaginative skill, organization skill, our curiosity, flexibility, sociablity . These things can tell us a lot about our personality which can help us find our true passion.
So, where and how do we find fulfillment? According to our host Edme-Alem, engagement brings passion, and passion brings authentic personality and authentic personality brings fulfillment. And we realized that, it was our job to find it.
Partaking in this particular RTD was yet another eye opening experience and I am sure we each left the room with a huge question mark on our minds, full of questions whose answers could only be found from within ourselves.
