Find what you love

If someone creates content — whether it’s music, videos, art, comics, or words — and you don’t like it, don’t understand it, or don’t find any value in it, maybe it wasn’t meant for you.

There are over 7.5 billion people on the planet — all with different preferences, opinions & levels of understanding — not everything anyone creates is intended for every single person on the planet.

It is perfectly possible to go in search of what you love in life without disparaging, mocking, or criticizing all the things you discover on your journey that you don’t.

Problem-finding as a sport

Some treat problem-finding like it’s a sport to win. But finding & highlighting problems is easy. Complaining is easy. Mocking & belittling people and/or their efforts is easy.

What isn’t as easy? Being solution-oriented instead of problem-focused & leading by example — & with love.

Seek to exchange value, not just take it

People have a nasty habit of greedily taking anything of value that they can get for free – even if it’s at the expense of the person or company giving it. And in return for the value they get, they often do nothing.

Don’t be one of them.

Exchange value, don’t just take.

Don’t let the value you get for free from someone or something stop with you.

Strive to keep value in motion by paying it forward and exchanging value wherever you can.

A difference of opinion

Reminder:

A difference of opinion doesn’t mean someone is against you & it doesn’t mean you can’t be friends — or at least get along.

A respectful disagreement is far more interesting & leads to far more growth than only associating with those who see things exactly as you.

Reducing bad behavior

If you wish to reduce bad behavior, it has to start with you, not the person who you think is behaving badly.

Responding disrespectfully to someone who is acting poorly just leaves the world with another badly behaving person. You must set the example you want to see.

Acting badly because someone else is acting badly is not an excuse to act badly. You are responsible for your behavior no matter what other people are doing.

Strive to set an example you will be proud of no matter how you are feeling and no matter who sees it.

People in groups

People in groups are notoriously stupid – not because any individual is, but because people blindly trust & follow group consensus instead of their own common sense.

This is proven by social media every second and you are not immune.

Of course – groups of people can yield amazing things. But whether the outcome/output of a group is considered positive or negative or successful (or not), it has little to do with whether group dynamics are at play or not. They are an incredibly powerful force & few are immune.
