Words have the power to make, shift and move almost anything and anyone. It also has the power to do good and with that the power to also harm and destroy. This also includes the things we tell ourselves without consciously being aware and sometimes you’ll be amazed at how many conversations we carry with ourselves every day.
What do you want to do with your life VS what are one of the things you want to do in life
Living in this day in age with unlimited opportunities can be both a blessing and a distraction. We’re often asked, “what do you want to do with your life?” and in many cases, we are drawn with either a blank or a small idea. Some of us may have invested so much time and money getting that degree, forgetting the fact that sometimes passions change. Others may have jumped straight into the workforce. As a result, we might tend to get overwhelmed at the fact there isn’t that “main” thing we want to do.
Life’s not about having one passion or one purpose – sure there can be the main purpose, but there’s so much more to see, do, try and explore. It’s all about having multiples because as humans, we’re all made up of all these elements.
What has the world done for me VS what can I give back to the world
I recently picked up the book The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson and one thing he touches on is entitlement. We live in a world where we feel entitled to certain things because:
1) shitty things have happened to us
2) because we think we’re awesome and deserve the good shit. Either way, we’re entitled to feel a certain way because certain things happened.
Here’s the harsh reality: The universe doesn’t owe any of us anything. I have so guiltily thought the world owed me because of all the good I’ve done and because of all the not so great things that have happened along the way.
