5X Your Inspiration | November 2022
Lead, gold, and you
Life is not static. Everything is in motion. At the sub-atomic level, you are energy. Left to its own devices, your mind and body suffer entropy - a gradual decay into a state of blah. You have to be proactive about guiding your energy (i.e., your entire being) away from this decline and onto an incline; a movement upward.
This post is written to boost you upward, or at least give you a few items to help you in that process. Inspiration is breathing in. Breath in positive, wonderful, and fascinating things and they will flow through you; energizing you and yielding light and life.
Below are five quick things to give you a boost. If you’re not subscribed already, do so now to get more stuff like this in your email inbox.]
Idea | A Case for Level 3
We live in an affluent society (USA). A slim few of us have ever existed in the lower two levels of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs:
This has the strange side-effect of making us feel like failures if we don’t achieve a level of success in the upper two levels - fully disregarding level three. In fact, level three may get sacrificed in the lust of levels four and five (i.e., the pursuit of individual success, wealth, and fame).
I posit that, if we spend our time mastering level three (assuming levels one and two are met). In fact, we can spend a lifetime mastering level three by helping others who don’t have levels one or two met. If we do that, the upper levels may just take care of themselves.
