Where Next?

We all have small accomplishments that we can pride ourselves with and patting ourselves on the back can be helpful and reassuring. But what if we think that that’s the best we can do? One college degree, landing a ‘safe’ job, providing for our family. By falling into the patterns of success that others, generations before, laid out for us, can prevent us from being truthful to ourselves and prevents overall progress.

The job, the car, the house. A circle of expenses where we produce just about enough to get by while holding on to our tokens of achievement. So many of us can’t seem to see outside of this vicious circle. The businesses are dehumanized, as if they’re not built by fellow humans. And we fall for the illusion that others will know what’s best for us, even after experiencing pain from a young age while sitting through classes in school for four, six, eight hours a day. Even then we still believe the narrative that that’s all that life has to offer.

What do you have to offer? What are your wants and needs? Your unexplored skills, waiting to be developed? And what value can you bring into the world?
