One could argue that an individual’s highest aspiration would be to make a difference, to matter. To know that he/she has lived, and made this world a better place. That they weren’t just another tiny spark in the grand scheme of things.
Ever thought about the power of good deeds?
I mean, the impact that one positive action you make has on the world.
Yesterday, I thought about it, after a relatively insignificant event happened.
“Be true to yourself” – How many times did we hear that quote being played around by people? Some say it has become a terrible cliche’.
What does being myself mean?
Humanity’s search for meaning can only be trumped by humanity’s search for it’s true identity. Each and every individual seeks to find him/herself, find their “true” nature, and be true to that “truth”.
I did it my way. It’s more than just an awesome song by Frank Sinatra.
It’s a statement. It’s a bold declaration that says: “I want to live life my way”. But what does that mean, living life “my” way? Is that even possible in today’s society?
The power of perseverance, or the art of going forward even when it’s as hard as fuck.
We all have goals. We all have dreams. But how many of us actually achieve what they set out to do? Not many you may say. I say – too few.
You consider it to be quite a bad quality, right?
I mean, fake people possess one of the worst qualities one can ever have. Not being truthful, not being honest.. simply being “FAKE”.
But what if I told you being fake could actually be a good thing?
Not only a good thing, but a GREAT thing – The thing that will change your life for the better, once you understand and implement it into your life.
If you’ve even seen/read Fight Club, you probably know what I’m talking about.
If you didn’t, you should.
But for now, I’ll explain exactly what I mean here:
Hitting bottom, isn’t about being homeless in the streets of New York.
It could be, but it’s not necessarily the point.
How many times do we find ourselves performing below our standards?
How many times do we find ourselves swearing, complaining.. mistreating others for no valid reason?
Life has no perfect timing.
Things simply happen. You can plan all you want, but eventually, the randomness of life will smack you in the head.
It’s quite common in the personal development community for people to express
their discontent of themselves. That is, that they are not good enough.
That they are unworthy, and so the must work on themselves in order to “become” worthy.
Here’s the thing – personal development is awesome, and I recommend it to pretty much anyone I meet. However, you must start with the following premise:
“I am enough”. Not tomorrow, not when you get your abs chiseled or achieve monk-like calmness. No. You are enough in this very moment.
You will continue to evolve, but at any given moment you are still enough.
Why do I say that?
