Watch “Why Some of us Don’t Have One True Calling | Emilie Wapnick | TEDxBend” on YouTube

So much this!!

We’re not all built the same and it’s just as true when it comes to careers and interests. Some of us are specialists who only want to focus on one thing, others love many things and work best when embracing it all. Yet the world believes we all can only do one thing as a career and that’s that.

How about a big fat NOPE.

Emilie Wapnick is bang-on about multipotentialites and how YES it’s ok to want to do more than one thing, that YES it’s normal, and that the world DOES need to recognize and accept that multipotentialites are necessary for the world to work wonders.

Multipotentialites exist, we are not alone.

Please watch, and definitely share; this is a message worth spreading!
