One simple idea that changes everything

Approach life with an attitude of “giving” rather then “taking”. In friendships, relationships, business, towards our planet, etc.

Pay attention to silently hearing yourself asking “what’s in it for me”, when you give your partner a massage, when you say thank you, when you go on a date, when you start a new business…

‘Taking” stems from our egos and insecurities — which we all seem to experience. The problem is that the outcome never feels fulfilling.

Notice how everything that makes life worthwhile has actually been “given” to you. Realizing this silences the ego very quickly.

Live life in gratitude and service for others, starting with care and kindness towards yourself 🙏
