Your Wants Matter
Growing up we’re basically told,
“Look kid, life isn’t about you, your needs, your wants, or desires. Life is about other people’s needs, wants, and desires. Just go along. You don’t matter too much.”
Tragic stuff. Sadly, any implicit message like this from adults is just a projection of their OWN childhood experience.
Let’s break the cycle, shall we?
Tune into your inner child and connect to his/her curiosities, interest, needs, desires. Start to treat that little boy or girl with love and kindness and trust and respect.
Celebrate your inner child.
When you turn inward like this, you begin to live a life and forge a career that makes YOU come alive.
For when you come alive, you not only become happier and freer, you inspire others to become the same.
Now that would be a whole new world.
Let’s start the revolution.

“The mentorship and Slack community were extremely helpful…. I wouldn’t have landed two paid freelance UX gigs (while still in the bootcamp) without them. These real-life work experiences helped me talk through my interviews and land a full-time job offer within one month of graduation.”
