If you look at your current lifestyle, maybe you are where you wanted to be. What else is there? What else is there left to conquer? Achieve? You just can not think of anything that you could do to enhance your own life.
Maybe that is just it. Everything you have been building, you built for yourself, your family, your circle of close friends, and that is it. I will be the first to tell you that I do not have a problem with people wanting better for themselves. I think it’s important that you establish the lifestyle you want for yourself (and family) because you are creating opportunities for the future. Oh wait- that’s it, right? Your goal is not just about self accomplishment but it’s about creating opportunities for those around you and down the future. Your goals for a better life is not only about making your life better but looking to the side and creating ways for your fellow brother/sister to also have some opportunities to make their life better.
When I speak about creating opportunities, sometimes people assume it’s only towards people who make the big bucks. No not really, you are wrong. It’s about the time we invest in creating ways to donate via clothing, monetary, our time invested in helping a child see that he or she has an opportunity to break out of a bad cycle.
We are taught to give, but sometimes we get so absorbed into our life that we forget there is always someone that has less than us. You want to feel good about yourself? You want to believe that you have more to life than what you have now? Give, create, help where you can. You will be surprised how many doors open.
