Me to We: From Consumption to Contribution

Are you feeling like a hamster on a wheel, endlessly chasing the next shiny object to add to your collection? Does the thought of another mindless shopping trip leave you feeling drained and disconnected from the world around you? You're not alone. The modern Western world has been hooked on the ideology of consumerism for far too long, and it's high time we start shifting our focus towards contribution and service to something greater than ourselves.

But why, you may ask? Well, for starters, contribution taps into a natural human trait - the desire to help and be involved in something meaningful. When we dedicate our time and energy to activities that benefit others, we experience a sense of fulfillment and purpose that is hard to replicate through consumption alone.


Take, for instance, the heartwarming story of two young boys who came to the aid of an injured man who fell from a waterfall in Far North Queensland, Australia. Despite the rampant youth crime that plagues the region, these boys were filled with a sense of satisfaction and pride in being able to help. And that feeling isn't unique to this particular situation - acts of kindness and service are known to produce a rush of positive emotions that leave us feeling connected and fulfilled.


Living a fulfilling life is not just about what you can take, but what you have to give. By shifting our focus from consumption to contribution, we tap into our innate desire to help others and find meaning in our lives.

But the benefits of contribution don't stop there. When we shift our focus away from consumption and towards service, we become more invested in the success and well-being of those around us. We're more likely to be involved in our communities and contribute to their growth, leading to a stronger sense of social cohesion and a more positive outlook on life.


And let's not forget the impact that contribution can have on our own creativity and inventiveness. Consumerism can easily stifle our ability to think outside the box and find innovative solutions to the challenges we face. But when we focus on contributing to something larger than ourselves, we unlock our creative potential and discover new ways to make a difference.
