You have a job right?
Have you ever sat down to think about how your job benefits someone else and how this chain continues no matter what you do? Our everyday lives consist of the work of other people. Whether you are at Starbucks purchasing coffee or shipping packages to eager customers, everything we do requires people. Here’s the breakdown.
I broke down different ways of receiving income into two different categories. Your first one is the “Need” and the second one is the “Like.” Those two categories may sound very simple but we’re about to dive a little deeper.
We’ll start with the “Need.”
When you are need of money you have to go out and find a job. Most of us get caught up in a job we highly dislike but we are only there becasue of the money. This job of course serves other people, the cliche cause and effect situation. No matter what job you choose, that job provides some sort of service to people. Humans are needed for businesses to survive. Without people needed some sort of service than what’s the purpose right?
Okay, so the Need was simple enough, let’s move on to the “Like.”
The Like is an activity you enjoy doing in life. This can range from drawing, skateboarding, reading, writing, or whatever the hell it is you like to do. People who excel in their “Like,” have an opportunity to turn it into a career. In order for this Like to become a career, it requires the satisfaction of other people like you and me. We are the people who made Michael Jackson, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, and N.W.A famous. They needed us to like their music for them to become successful. Do you see what happened? People were needed yet again.
If you have made it this far down the article and have said to yourself, “Well duh!” Than you’re a step closer to what I’m going to hit you with. If we need one another to survive, then why are we killing ourselves? I guess we can look at the battles we have fought throughout history as a way of survival, but even then, countless lives have been taken away from this earth.
With me being a firm believer in reincarnation, what if that 9 year old little boy who was assassinated in Chicago was going to be out future president that was going to make a huge impact? Now he has to go right back through the reincarnation cycle to return. Not to mention that since he was murdered he will probably carry some type of defect with him in the next life. In some sense, we’re holding ourselves back from what we truly can be by removing future possibilities. Those possibilities now have to wait for the next life to carry out those duties.
We should stop trying to hold back mankind and focus on the Needs and Likes that help make the world go around.
