What this means to me is that if I want to be at peace with myself, I have to "be all that I can be." I must be using all of my gifts...not just a few of them, and not just once in a while. I began developing my gifts as a child having to overcome obstacles, and these gifts include an ability to connect soul-to-soul with anyone, an intuitive understanding of the roots of people's challenges, an ability to help others find peace by improving their relationships with themselves and others, a willingness to adapt to new cultures and ways of thinking, an ability to learn languages quickly with minimal accent, as well as a knowledge of how to combine the worlds of science, psychology, spirituality, transcendentalism, metaphysics, and mysticism to create a better life. These are the gifts that make me the unique life purpose coach and speaker that I am.
The same is true for you: you must be aware of each one of your gifts and you must be applying each one of them to the best of your ability, working towards the biggest scale possible. That is what self-actualization is all about. Through a step-by-step process, you must get each of your needs met (financial, social, health, etc.), and at the same time you must take action towards being of service to the world in the way that only you can do. There are people who need you, they are waiting for you, because you are the only person who can help them in your own, special way, with your special gifts which you've accumulated your entire life.
So back to the question: What must you be?
