Being yourself is enough.

Here’s something I realized today.

Living is experiencing emotions. Feelings.

We don’t actually want money or achievement or success. We want the pleasant feelings that come with those things.

But here’s the catch.

All people, regardless of their status, position, fame, income level, gender, sexual orientation, background, location, context, philosophy, religion — they all have access to the same emotional spectrum.

This means we don’t need to get out of our own skin, hustle, or kill ourselves with work to achieve what we want. The feeling of winning a chess game with your grandfather feels at 95% as good as winning the Olympics. The feeling is the same.

Being ourselves is enough.

Another way to put it:

We don’t have to DO everything to BE everything. We are already infinite. Because all human beings are pure potential.
