I came across this post from a positive and motivating good friend of mine.
As I read it over again, I reckon this schpeel applies to us all. There is a silent social epidemic of entitlement that is stifling and strangulating our ability to connect with one another on a healthy basis. This social epidemic of entitlement has infiltrated our professional and interpersonal relationships. Responsibility evades us when we feel as if we are owed something whether it is praise, validation, favors, special treatment, retribution, immunity to rules and laws etc. Nothing good can ever come from feeling entitled.
You are important and you are needed. It’s too late to sit around and wait for somebody to do something someday. Someday is now and that somebody is you!
Every single soul has a special super power. Every single soul has a contribution to make to other souls. It is our individual responsibility to identify our special power and use it to impact the lives of others. No one can do it for us. That is just how we are built. Without purpose, we end up shits creek and possibly for some, before a judge reciting something similar to the above.
It is up to you to decide to take responsibility for yourself and your individual power. Learn it, use it. It is far more rewarding to do so than to sit back and wait to receive what you feel you are entitled to receive.
