Find your calm and that in-and-of-itself is revolutionary.


Book page and quote straight out of Matt Haig’s amazing book “Reasons to Stay Alive”


Problems, whether actual or made up, are real and they have a major impact on us. In fact, these problems are exactly what marketers aim to find solutions for – not only that, but they also present a whole slew of new problems that you probably never knew existed, but may want to resolve with that new product. Marketing, in and of itself is not the problem, but rather, it’s how it dramatically impacts our society which in turn leads to impacting our inner beings and self.

What if I could tell that there was a way to find calm amongst the chaos? Well there is!

It’s through finding your own destined and intended purpose. All of our lives are presented with intention, therefore, we should not take that for advantage and let it pass without at least making an attempt towards seeking out what our true purpose here on earth is. We are only here for a short time, therefore, we should make the most of it by living our intended lives as God meant for us. This means that we should mindfully seek out ways to live out our purpose. Remember, collide to coexist – this means unite and bring about all avenues of your life and make them work as one in harmony and unity and in that you will find your purpose.

“The world is increasingly designed to depress us. Happiness isn’t very good for the economy. If we were happy with what we had, why would we need more? How do you sell an anti-ageing moisturiser? You make someone worry about ageing. How do you get people to vote for a political party? You make them worry about immigration. How do you get them to buy insurance? By making them worry about everything. How do you get them to have plastic surgery? By highlighting their physical flaws. How do you get them to watch a TV show? By making them worry about missing out. How do you get them to buy a new smartphone? By making them feel like they are being left behind. To be calm becomes a kind of revolutionary act. To be happy with your own non-upgraded existence. To be comfortable with our messy, human selves, would not be good for business.”
