“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
There are moments in my life when I dream of wealth and fame. I am sure many of us do.
It’s normal, it’s human.
It was easy for a long time to think that I was only worth what I made. And I was never making enough.
When I joined the Mormon church though, something changed. It became clear that it wasn’t about the things I owned or even the places I went, what really mattered, at least to me, was how much I was helping others.
When I think about my future, it isn’t about building up my photography for fame, or selling signs for wealth.
I am using my talents right now, to build up something that can help me support my family. Help me give my son the things he will need and also help me to hopefully teach him through my actions. In the end though, I am hoping that I can find a way to complete something bigger.
Owning a business opens doors to others. Getting bigger lets you provide work for someone else. Work allows someone to gain skills and those skills inspire them to achieve. Accomplishments inspire people to dream and as they dream they work for their own future and when they work for their own future they find success.
So I want to work on this so that someday I can help someone do this also; chase their dreams, feeling a hope for the future.
It’s possible, but we gotta be the ones to start it. I gotta be the one to help.
