What reach is important SKY Vs HUMANITY?
I have often wondered when people use the saying "reach for the sky", whilst this may be a beautiful saying in relation to achieving your dreams but I find it insufficient.
I prefer we reach for humanity, to do something more than what benefits us for another human. To reach and give a scholarship to that kid you pass on the road everyday, or to encourage that lady that has been discouraged that she can't do a STEM course, to motivate that entrepreneur to try again, to go to work and treat your clients respectfully, professionally and be the joy to many.
I realize day by day that the clouds eventually fall to water the ground once the conditions are favorable, that which you are so eager to achieve will fall on you whilst helping others, helping humanity. Understand that life is larger than you, I and myself. Titles are good but humanity is truly better and satisfying.
Life's job is to keep us busy with self, our job is to realise that the essence of life is to give back to humanity. Everything revolves round our humanity. Eventually you get on a plane, fly high and have reached the sky, that's pretty good, what's next is to leave that plane and reach for higher levels, reach to be a blessing to humanity! Let humanity know you have lived.
