I stumbled across a powerful YouTube clip today and now find myself writing this article on a Sunday night. While I won’t tell you this clip will change your life forever, if you do have 18 minutes spare this week, I highly recommend you watch it. But first, let’s take a step back and build some context.
Understanding individual purpose in life is an ongoing battle most of us struggle with. In reality, most of us won’t find the answer (at least while we’re alive) and certainly not in its entirety. So, we look to different people and places to draw our inspiration in the hope of finding some answers. And as we get older and change as human beings, so do the inspirations we draw upon to drive us forward.
So when I tell my six year old son the most important thing he can do is to love himself, I say this with absolute confidence. If you can do this, you will undeniably break through the fear and and self-limiting beliefs that hold you back from your true potential. You will truly be inspired by positive change and your purpose in this world will become much clearer.
Once you learn to love yourself, you’ll be able to “live life fearlessly”. Enjoy!
