We live in a capitalist society. Whilst this article isn’t a debate about capitalism, it’s worth considering this…

We’ve been taught to value things that we pay money for and place little value on things that are free. “You only get what you pay for” being a good example of a saying we’re all very familiar with. But in reality the opposite is true when you take time to think about it.
 
I know people who have lost material possessions, even people who have lost their homes. But, with a fighting spirit these things can be rebuilt. When we think about things that are given freely such as our minds, our hopes and dreams, our friends and family. They are priceless.

The things we got for free, we can never replace.

Reflect on this next time you crave something. You might realise you already have the greatest gifts you could ever wish for.

In this era of information overload, my intention with my writing is to keep everything short and precise. These articles are not intended to be in-depth guides, they're merely short introductions. If a particular subject takes your fancy you may choose to explore it in more detail. if you want dive deeper - there is plenty of recommended reading here. I also put on talks and workshops which are more suitable for discussing subjects at greater length. Check my news page for events.

If you enjoyed my writing, have any feedback or requests, please leave a comment below.

Disclaimer: In the recommended reading section, I only post about books or products that I've read and that I whole heartedly recommend.
