Carl Jung said, “Nothing affects the environment of a child so much as the unlived life of a parent.” Consciously or subconsciously we each pick up the frustrations our parents felt. Some researchers suggest that we were even influenced by our mother’s emotions when we were in her womb. Therefore, in the process of discerning your path, it is important to sit back and reflect on both your past and your parents’ “unlived lives.” In the Path, creating your mission for work and life, we have identified the actionable steps you need to take in writing your mission. There are several resources on this page that can get you started with a proven tool that brings clarity and inspiration for your path.
