Why The World doesn't owe You Anything-min

Do You Really Deserve Anything from the World

“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

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.

The world is desperately waiting for your life changing lessons.

You have a gift that others need so much. You have a gift that can make the World a better place. You have an individual purpose that is incomparable to others.

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

  1. Hi Ikechi,

    You are so right about all that you mentioned in your wonderful post 🙂

    No, not at all, we deserve nothing from the world, in fact, we need to see what we can give or what have we done for this world, that’s given us so much in return. We see pain, hurt, crime, and what all not, in most places nowadays…isn’t this our doing? Haven’t we made this beautiful world such a place? I guess now it’s our turn to make the change and a difference for the better.

    I agree, each one of us is gifted, and we have to take the step to make a difference to this world, and learn to be more caring and giving. The choices, as you mentioned, always lie in our hands, to the direction we want to take.

    Thanks for sharing it with us, and I appreciate you linking to your wonderful guest post on our blog in the end….always remember it! Have a nice week ahead 🙂

    1. Hi Harleena

      You asked some deep questions and these are the questions that I pondered on which led me to write this post. What the World has become today is indeed our doing and not the World’s fault.

      We have the power to shape the World. Sadly, we give the responsibility to something that is waiting for us to make the changes. We are the ones that can direct the world to a better place and there is so much we can give.

      Yes I linked to my guest blog which I usually read all the time. Thanks for the lovely comment. Have a swell week. 🙂

  2. Hello Ikechi,

    Thank you for a great message! I totally agree with you. It is time for us to take our responsibility fully and commit ourselves to live our own most fulfilled life without blaming the world or giving away our own power by victimizing ourselves.

    The question is how we accomplish that. To make a right choice to create the world you want, you need to know who you are and where you are a moment to moment. In other words, you need to be willing to face your habits and patterns which you culminated from the environment you grew up in.

    By doing that, you know how to make a right choice for you, become your authentic self more and become more powerful and unstoppable.

    Your post is such a great reminder for all of us. Thank you for sharing it!

    In love & gratitude,

    1. Hi Keiko

      Welcome to my blog and I am thrilled that you like the post.

      You are certainly right. Self awareness is necessary to create a world that is better place for everyone. I am always questioning my beliefs all the time. Asking myself whether my mindset will make a difference and make an impact.

      I have found out that we all can create a better world if we take the responsibility.

      Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful week. Take Care
