We can choose to focus our work on raising the floor or the ceiling.
Most of us opt for the latter. We want more status, artifacts, title, money, time, stuff.
The reality is there are many out there who are in far worse positions and would trade for our situation in a heartbeat. Do you honestly believe there is no one else in the world who is suffering more than you are right now?
What we need is to appreciate what we have. That isn’t to say it’s a bad thing to want more. But this whole western mindset that, “Greed is good” isn’t bringing us the joy and happiness we seek.
In a world where people couldn’t care less, be someone who couldn’t care more.
