“I was shipwrecked before I even boarded . . . the journey showed me this — how much of what we have is unnecessary, and how easily we can decide to rid ourselves of these things whenever it’s necessary, never suffering the loss.”

— SENECA, MORAL LETTERS, 87.1

Most Of What We Have Is Unnecessary

Most of what we have is unnecessary.

There is little need for most things.

All they do is clutter and mess up your life, holding you back from greatness!

There’s little need for;

  • Most of the apps on our phone
  • Extra purchases
  • Extra materialistic items

These extra things offer no help to your life.

They simply clutter and make it worse.

Rid Yourself

You are a shipwreck if you cling to what is unnecessary.

Before you even board, you’re a shipwreck.

You need to rid yourself of what is unnecessary.

You need to rid yourself of the things that hold you down & drag you back.

You’ll find yourself at a great advantage if you rid yourself of the unnecessary.

You’ll be much lighter, with great clarity of mind.

You will live a better life.
