According to Richard Leider, NY Times bestselling author of “The Power of Purpose,” when you can connect your passion with your skill-set and align them with your core values, you’ve found your purpose in life! My personal belief system values food as a source of good health, and I feel fortunate that I have chosen dietetics as my career. Food and nutrition are subjects that highly interest me, and since I have been practicing in this field for so long, I am actually quite good at it! I now define “connecting people with good food” as my purpose in life. I use food as a medium to help people prevent and/or manage many chronic conditions. I work specifically with children, seniors and the developmentally disabled populations who rely on my service to thrive. While the dietary supplement industry is growing rapidly, as if pills are the plethora to all alignment, I focus on food! In my spare time, I enjoy cooking good food for my family and friends. I have also started writing about cooking fruits and vegetables in my blog, Winy’s Kitchen, to help promote the consumption of fruits and vegetables to the general public.
What’s your purpose in life? What are you naturally good at and what are you passionate about? If you can connect the dots, you have found your formula to a happy life!
