Let Your Desire Guide You

Begin the journey to becoming the best version of yourself

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Things you don’t have to do:

Set goals. Be really good at that. Get things done. Be cool. Keep your cool. Say only what you know for sure. Follow your fears. Climb that mountain. Do everything right. Do everything right now. Plan ahead. Be spontaneous. Hold that conversation. Visit that place. Be the person they said you should be. Smile every second of every minute. Be an endless source of inspiration. Know something about anything.

Things you have to do:


Things you can do if you want to:

Peel the layers that cover your core, find your deepest desire and discover how this desire is your essence. Your drive. The air under your wings.

Choose to embrace your desire and show the world what the beautiful miracle known as ‘you’ is all about. Find out with every passing day how this desire is your compass. Your light. Your guiding star. Let your desire guide you on your journey to becoming the best version of yourself.

Make room for this desire. Allow it to grow. The more you do, the stronger it will get, and the clearer you will become. It will then tell you who you are, and more importantly, why you are.

You don’t have to.

You can.

It’s up to you.

Thank you for the inspiration, Tal Asherov.
