“Despite many years of personal development, I have the nagging feeling that this kind of work is narcissistic and selfish”.
The above statement is part of a question that my Facebook friend Beth asked me to address.
This ‘walking talking’ video is the response.
Here’s the thing (in short): everything you ever do is selfish (at least to some degree). But genuine personal development, profound healing, and grounded spiritual practice are the only activities that can make a significant difference in the world… and the real question is not ‘Is it Selfish’, but ‘Is it Worthwhile – will it make a difference?’
