“At the end of the day, it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished… It’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.”
All your experiences, your challenges, your doubts and your fears aren’t unique. That’s why they’re useful.
Every single thing you’ve gone through, someone has gone through and survived. Someone is going through it right now. And someone will go through it in the future.
You’ve learned from those who’ve survived before you and now it’s your turn to help those who haven’t yet.
To be useful, you’ve got to realize that what you’ve gone through isn’t unique, but it is special. You have the power to make someone’s life easier than yours was. You have the ability to help someone make a different decision, see a different perspective, take a different course of action.
You have the power to change someone’s life. Share your experiences and all the lessons you’ve learned. Help others feel less alone.
Some people give back by building apps or writing books they wish they had while they were struggling. Others build organizations or start movements. Or maybe, just start by helping those around you asking for advice.
It’s through whatever medium or means you want it to be.
So think about what you’ve gone through, what you’ve done, or what you’ve seen that could help someone, somewhere and use it. Take tomorrow as a chance to give everything you’ve got and everything you know.
Don’t be unique. Be useful.
