In such a big world, with our ever-increasing levels of education and information, the biggest thing we all want is this: impact.
We all want to be able to create impact. In one way or another, we’re all influencers. We have influence over unique aspects in our networks, and carry the power to create change through our digital devices.
We came to change the world (hopefully for better).
We want to do it in ways that are meaningful to us, and that are good for others.
Though we’re rather small beings, with small voices, we have big dreams and ambitions.
And we won’t stop until we change a bit of our world.
In a world so digitally connected, we are putting all our time and effort into more LinkedIn connections, Instagram followers, TikTok likes—you get the gist.
The more time we put into our digital “worth”, the less time we spend being human.
We can send each other memes all we want, but in times of personal need and turmoil, who can you turn to?
If you’re struggling to find your answer, it may be time to invest more effort into being more human.
Connect with others (who are like you) on a ground level, where you can see each others concerns, ambitions, and dreams. We need to find our support in places we don’t frequent.
If this were easy, everybody would be doing it. The truth is that it’s hard. It’s hard to develop empathy to connect with other human beings. It’s hard to open up ourselves to potential scrutiny and humility; being vulnerable is not easy.
But once you find your support, once you find others who are willing and empathetic enough to share who they are with you, you’ve got something special.
Treating ourselves with respect is a great step in nurturing better relationships with others.
When so much of our success depends on our internal relationship with ourselves, it’s silly to not put in the time and effort to take care of our own happiness.
Build yourself a ship that can sail, so that you can help others build theirs too.
