Are you negative, broke and fed up?
I stopped reading the newspapers about 10 years ago when I bought my first smartphone. This is when I started to find a cornucopia of new thinking, much of it which inspires my writing today Minimalism is “intentionally trying to live with only the things we really need”
This is in contrast to what the mainstream media tells you “You need to gain the world” The reality is when you speak to people about what they want to accomplish in life it is rare that you hear “I just want to make as much money as possible and then die”
Most people will be yearning for love, meaningful relationships, having an impact, and leaving a legacy. Many will speak of faith. Or they talk about solving the world’s problems
In contrast, CEOs, who do have many of the things that others aspire to, talk of having wasted their lives, questioning whether all that effort and stress was worth it. I know of successful businessmen who have sadly died months into their retirement.
So before you think further about trading your passions for the things of this world, take a look at this blog. Becoming Minimalist – Joshua Becker. It will teach you how to declutter your life and focus on what’s important. It is more than just owning less, it is about taking control!
