We’re not on our journey to save the world, but to save ourselves.
In doing so, you save the world.
The influence of a vital person vitalizes.
― Joseph Campbell
One of the biggest problems I have seen in my own life and in my clients’ lives is when we take responsibility for another person’s issues, leaving no time for us to be responsible for ourselves.
And the reason why? Because it’s easier to focus on someone else’s problems than our own and because most of us have been conditioned to believe it’s selfish to give to ourselves first.
However, the biggest transformation I have seen in myself and others is when we take the necessary steps toward change and take the time to nurture our own needs first.
The more self-aware, reflective, and responsible we are, the more our outer world will reflect this inner landscape.
Responsibility is a practice that opens the door to our authenticity, resilience, and freedom.
And as Joseph Campbell says, ‘The influence of a vital person vitalizes.’
