Responding to Culture

Happiness is not your title. It is not your salary. It is not your job. It is your family. It is your health. It is your relationships. Not the quantity of followers but the quality of lives you’ve impacted and creating your own culture where you are free to be you without fear and without apologies. To find out more, read Tuesdays with Morrie below: “The culture we have does not make people feel good about themselves. And you have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesn’t work, don’t buy it.” — Morrie Schwartz

5 Reasons for Dual Nationality: Reason #3

Pressuring or forcing dual nationals to renounce one of their citizenships is analogous to creating a brick-less Berlin Wall. It locks in the citizen by making defection more difficult such that poor governance need not result in loss of subjects.

Vocations – What Is Yours?

Each man has his own vocation. The talent is the call. There is one direction in which all space is open to him. He has faculties silently inviting him thither to endless exertion. He is like a ship in a river; he runs against obstructions on every side but one, on that side all obstruction is taken away and he sweeps serenely over a deepening channel into an infinite sea…He has no rival. For the more truly he consults his own powers, the more difference will his work exhibit from the work of any other.

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ease vs. Hardship? Which Leads to Greater Happiness?

It is natural for people to want to lead a life of comfort and ease. Most people do not seek out hardship for hardship’s sake. Hardship is difficult and often painful. However, it leads to growth. No hardship, no growth. No growth, no fruit. A successful life, therefore, is not a life without hardship. It is one with hardship. Success dies with the person. The fruit you bear, however, lasts even after you’re gone. Now that’s the kind of legacy worth leaving, a generational one. Each of us decides our own legacy. Don’t wait to make yours.
