“There’s a big confusion in this country over what we want versus what we need,” Morrie said. “You need food, you want a chocolate sundae. You have to be honest with yourself. You don’t need the latest sports car, you don’t need the biggest house. The truth is, you don’t get satisfaction from those things. You know what really gives you satisfaction?…Offering others what you have to give…I don’t mean money, Mitch. I mean your time. Your concern. Your storytelling. It’s not so hard.” _ Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie
In the movie Jaws, the main character wants to get rid of a shark, but what he needs is to overcome fear of the water. Him overcoming fear gave people hope to go back to the beach again.
What are your want vs your needs? what are you confused about? Can focusing on people give you some clarity and relief? I think so. This is truth. That life is about giving up to give away like crazy.
“You can have everything in life that you want if you just give enough other people what they want.” ― Zig Ziglar
