The Beatles said that all you need is love. Skeptics might respond that love doesn’t pay the rent. To that, I say hell yes it does!
Love isn’t something limited to a romantic relationship. We aren’t talking just about holding hands and walking into the sunset (though that kind of love is nice too). We’re talking about love as a guiding force in everything you do.
At work, respond to challenges lovingly, patiently, and with care. Who do you think will have more success? The negative, selfish person or the one lifting everyone’s mood with kindness and presence while solving every problem and handling every challenge without any stress, struggle or conflict? Love wins easily. There is no competition.
Nothing is more practical and effective as a guiding force than love. What is the alternative? Egoic manipulation, competition and attack? This will ultimately end relationships, isolate you, and remove opportunity from your life.
Love—the energy of creation—is the source of all value. Here you are unstoppable. Love is all you need, and it even pays the rent.
