The Value of Experiences

And why information is cheap.

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.

Information is cheap. Experiences are valuable. We learn, grow, change, and improve BETTER from experiences. That’s a human behavioral fact.

If you want real transformation and real results in realizing your dreams, becoming your best self, and creating a life you love, then you better start embracing that fact, and some experiences.

We live in a world where information is ubiquitous, potentially limitless, and has been democratized and demonetized to a zero valuation. That’s awesome because it means we have free, easy access to a limitless supply of information. But it’s also dangerous because it means we’re spending more of our time consuming information at the expense of actually experiencing it.

Access to and consumption of information alone will not yield progress. True progress and change will only come from applying that information and using it in your own experiences.

The way I see it, such experiences – the ones that trigger progress, growth, and transformation – are born out of three primary sources:

  1. Engagement
  2. Connection
  3. Creation

So start experiencing! Start engaging in, connecting with, and creating something that you love, something that matters to you, something that expresses who you are.That’s how you grow, improve, and realize your best self, and all of your dreams!

Because when you express what you’re intended to express, you experience healing. When you manifest your best self and your most authentic self, you experience fulfillment. When you create and share your voice and your Passion, you experience purpose, inspiration, hope, and love – and you allow others to experience it too.

So get out there and start experiencing! Get out there and start doing more of what you love, and being more of who you love! #SeizeYourPassion!
