The Ultimate Renewable Resources
Sometimes when I try to find the underlying theme of what it is that really, really, really bothers me, I recognize it’s the concept of “wasted resources”. Whether I write about Productivity or Education or Women Empowerment, it really bothers me to see someone who has so much potential to do something great life and yet see that potential wasted because of the following;
- Belief that they’re stupid and can never change…countered by the growth mindset
- Analysis Paralysis…discussed here
- Lack of Passion and Purpose…written about here and here
- Seeking other people’s approval. This is a big one in our society. A lot of times we find ourselves on certain paths — whether career or relationships — just because of what others expect of us. We get married not because we love the other person but because “it’s time to settle and he was available so….”. We stick to a job we hate because of the car it would enable us to drive and the prestige it would give us. Yet at the end of the day, when all is said and done, and the lights go out at night, those people whose approvals we seek are never there to listen to the whisperings of our hearts and gauge how we feel about ourselves. So sometimes, we just need to realize that what matters more than pleasing those people is how we feel about each and every single day of our lives.
I like to say, “People talk about the sun ☀️,the wind 💨 and the wave 🌊 as renewable resources, but the ultimate renewable resources are within us humans; creativity, love, decisiveness, honesty, sincerity, passion….”
Remember that today.
