“Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living; the world owes you nothing; it was here first.” Mark Twain, R.J Burdette
I hate people who say “the world doesn’t owe you anything” Maggi mumbled to herself.
It seemed that those who had such belief did not have any empathy nor any understanding in their heart. This just did not make sense.
People were suffering; there was pain, poverty, and disease having its way in the world. Chaos was rising. Yet, some people had the nerve to say that ” The World owed no one anything “.
Maggi had even seen a quote while browsing through her Social Media. It displayed an interesting message.
The world doesn’t owe you loving parents.
The world doesn’t owe you friends.
The world doesn’t owe you a job.
The world doesn’t owe you food, or shelter, or water, or warmth.
The world doesn’t owe you fairness.
The world doesn’t owe you happiness.
The world doesn’t owe you a life.
How could this be true? Maggi thought to herself. Suddenly, Maggi had a feeling of confusion and hurt. She had always believed that the World owed her so much and she was entitled to the good treasures of the World.
Maggi had held on to this philosophy and did her part by working hard day and night. She had been open to opportunities but none seemed to come her way. She always wondered why she could not be as successful as others.
However, Maggi believed that one day she would wake up and the world would make all her dreams come true. Life had so much to give to her. Life had so much opportunities to offer her. She just had to be patient.
Sadly, Maggi was made to understand that all her perception was a useless dream. That her thinking about entitlement was just crazy.
Now Maggi wonders; did the World really owe her anything? Did she deserve anything from the world?
Why The World Doesn’t Owe You Anything
Just like Maggi, If you feel hurt that while you are doing your quota, you are being cheated by the World. if you are probably confused about why the World doesn’t owe you anything when you are entitled to so much.
Then here is why life doesn’t owe you anything:
You Shape The World
Yes! You certainly do. You shape the world in ways that you have never imagined.
You might have been programmed and have become a product of your Culture/Society/Politics but if you allow only this limited version of you to prevail, you will miss out on the best part of YOU.
You have a voice inside you that has the power to overcome all self imposed standards and cause a transformation to the World.
Your story has the power to be an inspiration to others. You are the power tool that shapes the world.

Being You is what makes a difference in the World
“Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren’t any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you would not be here in the first place. And never forget, no matter how overwhelming life’s challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person.” ~ Buckminster Fuller
