Me First

There is only one journey–going inside yourself

Think back to your elementary school years, how you loved every classroom experience and relished all the new things you were learning. Remember being in class as a child. When the teacher asked a question and you knew the answer, your hand shot enthusiastically into the air, urgently flagging the teacher to pick you first. In those days “ME FIRST” felt good; and it felt right because it was.

As a child “Me First” was appropriate. You were expected to be ego centric as this was how you found your place in the world and developed your identity. You were the centre of your own universe and you thought the world revolved around you and your needs.

Make. Work. Better.
