Admittedly, I usually equate my overall happiness to my fulfillment at work. I'm often torn between feeling inner peace for what I have and the desire for wanting more. So when I begin to bring into question all my life choices, and lately my professional sense of restlessness, I often find myself re-reading this quote over and over and over again.
For me, these words fuel my motivation. A motivation that evokes the desire I have to live passionately, to stay inspired by life, and in love with my profession. And when I think of the man who achieved greatness by never settling, inner peace becomes much more of a mindset rather than a final destination or collection of accomplishments.
