“I was my own best discourager.”
~ Julian Barnes

I got only one thing to say about this one.

Don’t.

Just don’t.

Why? Because you matter! And why do you matter? Because you consume.

You drink, eat, buy, and absorb resources constantly…and in today’s world, the number one issue is resource allocation. As a player in this planetary game, you matter to every other living creature on this planet.

So, don’t discount yourself. In a world of 7 billion plus, we can’t discount you. Encouraging yourself to stay engaged, get involved, and believe in your ability to contribute meaningfully…is the greatest goal a modern human can have.

~March Twisdale
