In a world filled with social media comparison, digitally enhanced photos and LinkedIn profiles that mention all of our strengths and none of our weaknesses, it’s never been harder to hold your hand up and say ‘I’m trying, I’m lost, I don’t know who I am’.
The technology that was designed to bring us closer together, continues to push us further apart as we absorb ourselves in being everywhere other than where we actually are.
As a result, many of us spend our lives focusing on all the things we don’t have rather than those we do, attempting to live a socially acceptable version of a happy life.
George Orwell said ‘The Essence of being Human is that one does not seek perfection”, so why are we so driven to portray perfection in every aspect of our lives?
Now just for one moment, imagine a world where our measure of success isn’t intertwined with our job title, what we own, how much we earn or how many likes we get on social media.
A world where people are more open about their challenges, weaknesses, fears and obstacles.
A world where your success is determined by how hard you’re working to become a better version of yourself, no matter where you start.
A world that not only provides you with constant reminders that you should be happier, healthier, smarter and kinder than you currently feel, but a place that actually gives you the tools, knowledge and techniques to become it!
