    Lots of people are gonna disagree with this, this basic tenet of self-improvement is rooted in Western culture….

      It’s one of the basic premises of western culture…

      I’ve always thought most people cling so strongly to it as continuing to do so today (sort of) justifies the effort they put into it yesterday.

    You are way of with many things guy! we can change the world one choice at at time and you people who read stuff out from a text book and only believe that, doesn’t mean  there is not more to the world. There is more in this world that we even realise my friend.

    I now live with my experience and feel what is real I am writing several books to help people to be himself that is important to make our own choices and have our own passion, degrees are stupid.

    Having just come from a very motivational Les Brown video to this one was a very nice contrast in tone! Both men are right in their own ways i think.

    What if you really enjoy fixing the problems of yourself and the world and you can get paid for it?

    Reminds me of ‘ fear hoarding’  where someone keeps striving to get more and more because they  ‘fear’  their   s t u f f   being taken from them.  They fear their very existence being,, they fear annihilation.  Ultimate annihilation.  From non peer acceptance to ultimate non acceptance by all of society itself.

    What year is this? He sounds very lucid in this recording compared to some of his later recordings perhaps

    It comes down to doing what you want to do, because it’s what YOU want to do, deep down inside, you have that drive and passion to do it, for yourself, if you do it for any other reason, like love, money, status, then it’s not really why you want to do it, there are ulterior motives behind what you do.

      +Robert Strugnell I am in the process of doing that. I started to write stories, poems and drawing. Since I am a child i loved drawing and writing and it’s starting to come back and whenever I finish a story or a small drawing even if it doesnt look supergood it makes me feel so happy and i want to share my creations with the world but I’ve got no idea how to do that. I might start an internet blog or so,ething like that.

      It sounds like you are doing something you enjoy, that is what counts, it will bring you more satifaction to your life doing sometihng you enjoy as a career than something you are doing just because it pays well, there is more to life than money, but hey, if you keep writing and doing blogs etc one day you could get noticed, or your could publish a book or books and be noticed by a film director, it gets made into a movie etc. Always stay true to yourself.

      +Mansell5Senna8 thank you for this. I write alot and you’ve inspired me to maybe open a blog. instead of writing in my journal. Thank you : ) I was always afraid that my stuff would get ripped off though.

      It doesnt matter what anyone else thinks, do it because its makes YOU happy, not anyone else. One thing you must realise is that you cannot make everyone happy, some will like it, some will not, those that dont like it forget about them, they are not worth your time worry about it… As long as you enjoy doing it that is all that matters, everyone else is just along for the ride.
