I haven’t been out in bars much for a long time since I have usually prioritized other activities over the odor of cigarettes, swarms of drunken finns and music so loud that you can’t really make up a good conversation. Yesterday Kim talked me over to spending the evening in Valter Cafe which to my lovely surprise seemed like an enjoyable non-smoking venue and after a couple of GTs I drifted into making acquintance with a friendly couple at a table next to ours.
From our conversation I picked up a golden nugget which seemed to resonate exceptionally well with my own gut feeling but in which I hadn’t put that much thought before and certainly couldn’t put into words as eloquently: In order to achieve the most in life it is not only important to grow as a person but to help others around you to blossom. (translated freely from finnish)
I’d like to believe that the gut feeling I have had about this has led me to help many great and likeminded people achieve more than they would have without me, but putting this feeling in such a concrete form will surely help me put even more attention to empowering others to drive forward worthy goals. And what is even better, I am now more able to encourage others to do the same!
For this and other enlightening insights that you shared with me tonight I would like to hearthly thank you Kalle, and if you read this, please drop me a comment or an e-mail with your blog/website address so that I can properly credit you with a link
