What Makes You Come Alive

“Don’t ask what yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people that have come alive.” -Harold Thurman

Please note that the video shows a quote from Harold Whitman, but it should have read Harold Thurman.  See the comments section below.

    This is a wonderful quote and image, but it is misattributed. The quote comes from Howard Thurman.

      You’re right!

      Plus, the quotation I have is wrong; it should read: “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

      Darn. I will change the wording below the video, but now I have no way of changing the video!

      Anyway, this article talks about how Mr Thurman is widely misquoted on the web: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howard_Thurman
