The Light Inside You

You Have Something To Offer The World

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres. We publish pieces 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 though they are reviewed for adherence to our guidelines, they are submitted in their final form to our open platform.

Hands Holding Candle

Let your mind wander back to your childhood and remember the absolute confidence with which you knew that you would change world. That there was something so special about you that needed to be shared.

What made you stop believing that message was true?

It was Thoreau who said “the mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation”. At some point you started believing that you were “another one of a million” instead of  “one in a million”. 

Let this message serve as a reminder that YOU are needed. Your background, your personality, your voice, your kindness, you art, and most importantly YOU. This world needs you to show up because we all lose something in your absence.
