Don’t get me wrong, I admire the ambitious, the self-driven, self-motivated, individuals that are independent. Strong. Determined.

Their brilliance and their perseverance is what helped mold the American dream, and their successes have taught us that humans are capable of anything.

We can get the money, the money AND the cars, the cars AND the clothes.

This is the attitude of today’s America. Men and women alike; getting higher education, making lives for themselves, to become self-sustaining, self-made millionaires.

BECOME INDEPENDENT.

Independence is what we’re striving for.
But what they don’t tell you is,
you can’t do it alone.

We’re human. We are bounded by certain limitations. The successes and achievements that many of our role models have attained were in part because they had support.

As social beings, our natural instinct is to collaborate with others, and create  bonds. Our very existence into this world has been because we have been born from the wombs of our mothers, and nurtured in her arms.

Yes, I do see the value in being independent, being successful, and making money. But I see greater value in learning how to be humble, how to express gratitude and appreciation.

Money may enable us to survive,
but relationships enable us to thrive
.

Understand that although your achievements are commendable and deserve to be recognized, you didn’t do this alone.

Resist the temptation to succumb to the fleeting promises of monetary success– that cause us to severe our ties, and dissolve our friendships.

Whether you were inspired by someone, had a favor done for you, or simply received some helpful tips of advice..

Show people how much you appreciate them, even for the most simple, seemingly mundane things.

& sometimes, a simple “Thank You,”  is all it takes.
