Man’s main task is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is. The most important product of his effort is his own personality. – Erich Fromm
I personally agree with this quote as I believe we are each born with a unique purpose, which I will not belabor here as I have expressed that in countless other posts around the topics of passion and purpose. However, this did provoke a question I believe we should all ask ourselves.
“How much time do we allocate to ‘giving birth to myself so that I may become my potential’?”
