This article might just be for me, but maybe it’s for you too. If it’s for you, I’m glad you liked it. If it’s not for you, thanks for stopping by.
This is an idea I have been thinking about for a long time (months? years?). Recently it has been striking a chord with my gut and I believe it’s something that’s a sign of maturity (and plainly, just getting older).
Something I fundamentally believe is true: regardless of who you are, your background, your beliefs or your personality, your purpose in life is to serve other people with your skills, talents, interests, and perspectives.
This belief might be arguable. I’m sure someone could come up with an objection. But the way I see it, whether you’re an entrepreneur, employed, president of the country, a spouse, a parent, or a literal servant, you’re a servant to other people.
I guess the obvious objection would be people who don’t work a job and sit at home (or at their lack of a home) by themselves and do nothing. But more than likely, even if you have some disabilities or setbacks in life, you’re still working hard to help others with some amount of your time (even if you’re just volunteering your time).
