I believe with what we have seen over the past couple of years is that a majority of people have placed what should be their individual responsibility into the hands of others.
"Doctors won't make you healthy.
Nutritionists won't make you slim.
Teachers won't make you smart.
Gurus won't make you calm.
Mentors won't make you rich.
Trainers won't make you fit.
Ultimately, you have to take responsibility.
Save yourself." - Naval Ravikant
So how do we "Save Ourself?"
To put it simply, take full responsibility for your life.
The moment you start blaming other people or having expectations of other people is the moment you start putting your power into their hands.
You are source, not reaction.
"But what about my kids, my family, my colleagues, my business, my husband or wife..."
They are just reflecting back to you the state of your inner world.
By Saving Yourself, you get better and the rest of the world around you gets better too.
It's an internal game.
Heading into 2022 - How can you get better? Instead of "saving the world" you save yourself first and the world starts to follow.
Here are some Superpowers to cultivate for yourself to thrive in today's World:
- Thinking For Yourself
- Being Unoffendable
- The Ability To Change Your Mind
- Master Of Your Emotions (EQ)
- Neverending Learning
Cultivate these superpowers and you get better. When you get better, the world around you gets better.
"Don't wish it was easier, wish you were better."
P.S. Fun fact I read the other day, helps me put life into perspective even more.
"The average male produces 500 billion sperm cells in one lifetime, each genetically unique. That's more than 4X people who have ever lived. We are all winners in a very competitive race. Congratulations."
God put you here for a reason. 💙
