Generally speaking, it seems that most of the posts we see on business or personal growth fall into two categories; therapeutic, or instructional.
The therapeutic works on the basis that we’re somehow not good enough, that we’re flawed, failing and need help.
The instructional works on the basis that we’re insufficiently trained; that we need to be taught, by those who are better than us.
Both have their place, up to a point, but only if we believe the purpose of our life is to fulfil others requirements of us.
If, on the other hand the purpose of our lives is to use the unique gifts we have been given, the unique perspectives we hold, the intent we have for our lives to use them to leave the world a better place than we find it, then they don’t.
Our lives have an expiration date. Between now and then, we have a choice to make.
