The world is abundant. There’s so much to see, so much to do, so much to be. Pick people’s brains. Walk through open doors. Talk to strangers. Take a new route home. Go somewhere you’ve never been before. Experience as much as you can, including mistakes, failure, risks, struggle, uncertainty. Because that will bring us closer to experiencing the beauty of life. There’s so much on offer. We just need to take it.
We all have potential to unlock. We all have more to offer and more to be. And we ourselves hold the key. Prosperity isn’t all down to luck or genetics or circumstances. It mostly comes down to perseverance, passion and the belief in our potential. We all start at the bottom, swimming breathlessly in the darkness. But if we keep going, we become stronger and see clearer in the dark. What makes someone accomplished is because they kept going, despite other people’s doubtful comments or even their own pessimistic thoughts. Don’t give up on yourself so easily. The world around us is just an abundance of dreams knitted together to create reality. If other people can do it, so can we. We are all good enough. We all have potential. It’s the biggest mistake to believe you don’t.
The very connotations surrounding the definition of ‘selfish’ are negative: “lacking consideration for other people; concerned chiefly with one’s own personal profit or pleasure”. But sometimes the only way we can ever become selfless is through being selfish. If we do not pursue our own passions, if we cannot be ourselves, if we do not take care of ourselves – if we are basically empty inside – then what do we have to offer and give each other? When we follow our own ideas, we bring new perspectives into the world. When we learn to be ourselves, we inspire confidence in others. When we understand how to make ourselves happy, we radiate happiness into the world. By being a little selfish once in a while, the world will blossom.
