Day 7–Lives and Philosophies: Part One
June 1, 2009
The unexamined life is not worth living.
If you want to change the world, to solve others’ problems, you must first understand yourself: your motivations, your rationality, and your purpose must be completely within your knowledge. There is no way to relate to the outside world without first relating to yourself. Ask yourself: What kind of person am I? What traits apply to me? And, why?
This week, each day’s task will have the end purpose of self-reflection, enabling you to develop a clear life philosophy. As the week progresses, ask yourself: Why do I act as I do? Why do I enjoy what I enjoy? What do I believe to be right?
Today, I want you to focus on one thing: what makes you happy. Today, ask yourself: “What would make me fulfilled? What do I need to make my life complete?” There is a difference between greed and self fulfillment–today, focus on self-fulfillment. What would make you complete as a person? The answer can only be determined by you yourself.
Getting to know yourself can be a revolutionary act. Today, let’s start the revolution.
See you tomorrow.
