Tonight I delivered a seminar called Taking Ownership of Your Career at a local library.  One topic I always touch on in this workshop is identifying your “sparks” – those moments in time that send a shiver up your spine or give you a jolt of positive energy.  Some of the sparks that participants mentioned were:

  • Being outside in nature – the expansion of space and light
  • Having an impact on many people
  • Mentoring others
  • Seeing progress in your life

The list went on to include a wide variety of experiences, environments and activities. One of my sparks is seeing the light in someones eyes and the energy in their voice when they talk about their sparks.  Another is leading programs like this with a great group of people sharing their thoughts, goals and possibilities!

So what about you?  What are some of your “sparks”?
