Criminally under-liked post. This is exactly the root of most people’s malady and exactly the root of really creative acts. Selflessness is divine. In fact, when I see acts of selflessness on the news or in a great film, it brings me to tears. As you’ve touched on, when you dig really deep into yourself, you’ll touch on something really human. And when you touch on something really human, you’ll reach other people. This goes for entrepreneurship, writing, filmmaking, songwriting. I’d almost like to say that the road to personal wealth lies in self-sacrifice. But that’s a bit too poetic for me.
Spot on. I wish everyone would read this and agree.
