1. The people who consume a lot of information, and learn, and share what they find interesting, but don’t act to improve their lives and help others. These people often talk about what they know, brag about their opinions, and gossip about politics, news, sports, or any form of entertainment. They talk more.
2. The people who choose what information to consume, learn what they need to learn, apply what they learned, and share their wisdom to help. These people live with their values every day. They still talk about what they learned, though. But more often than not, they make sure they provide value. They act more.
So which one are you?
Every day, I try to be the person who takes action to improve myself, learn about things I want to learn, and help people in my own ways. Sometimes I’m motivated. Sometimes I feel like a fraud. I don’t know.
But I think, improving ourselves is one thing we all struggle with. Because it’s hard, so hard. I have to remind myself that I’m not perfect and I need help. Yes I need help, we all need help. We all need each other to become better human beings.
