This diagram speaks to me – maybe not the ‘you are great at it’ part, (will always be working towards that – which is what makes writing challenging), or the ‘you are paid for it’ part (writers are generally poorly paid and many volunteers have a strong purpose), but all the rest, and especially the way they are interconnected. I think the ‘passion’ component could be slightly larger than the rest. It can come in so many forms, in how you live, how you love, what you believe, how you behave. It’s what I hope my family and friends will all find in their own lives, as it’s what helps us get through the grind of daily living.
