In a world of Me Me Me, what if I did the opposite?
What if I️ lifted other people up instead of me?
Of course, I want Renaissance Life to be huge. I want to create a massive tribe of friends pursuing mastery and living life to the fullest. But is pushing out one more social media post really going to do it for me?
Binge reading Ryan Holiday’s blog has shown me how timeless our work can be. I’m reading his thoughts from over a decade ago, and yet there they are — fresh as the day they were conceived. What stands out most to me is not the insights (although there are a bunch of them) but the connections he made along the way. And the same goes for us.
My writing is important, but it’s the connections I make that matter.
That’s why I’ve started interviewing Creatives Like Me on the blog.
I want to create deep and lasting bonds with likeminded humans.
I want to surround myself with charismatic and energetic people who are striving to make the world a better place.
Action Steps: Focus on the we culture, not the me culture. Focus on lifting others first.
Who knows what kind of friends we’ll have if we do?
