Committing to the unusual, uncommon, or seemingly impractical life can feel like a very weird thing to do. But as you start going down your natural path, daring to enter the arena of your preference, you’ll find very quickly that there are a lot of people in there already!
Your path was meant to test you—to make, break, twist, disorient, disintegrate and remake you. Who else but you could design something so intricate, maddening, and unique? There’s nowhere in the universe you would be able do what you can do here, now.
It’s one of the most overused phrases in modern times. However, what “the world needs,” truly, is for us to get clear on what it is we even mean when we say “world”. Do you mean all of humanity? The earth? Both? The Western world? The third? Whose world are we referring to with our grandiose sentiments? And how the hell do we get off speaking as if we have any clue about what the world needs?
You don’t need to make money. That’s what the reserves, mints, and banks do. There are trillions upon trillions of dollars, euros, pesos, dong, yuan, yen and a multitude of other currencies out there now, and with digital money, blockchain, and emerging cryptocurrency options, the shift toward global, immutable, secure, transparent, decentralized, cruelty-free money is pushing forward.
You’re not finished, and you’ll never get it all done, but you have already succeeded. You’ve pursued your mission, in one way or another, and while you certainly feel you haven’t done nearly enough—that you could be of better service, that you could be more at ease, and more profitable or productive—those ideas are based on industry, not on spirit.
