The great thing about having a unique perspective:

Nobody can refute your perspective as being ‘right’ or ‘wrong’.

All perspectives are subjective — the great liberating thought!

There is no such thing as ultimate or irrefutable truth

“These are just my thoughts (just my thoughts)” – JAY Z

This is what all philosophy nerds aspire towards:

To discover one irrefutable truth, to feel supreme ascendency over all other human beings.

Now the truly intelligent amongst us should know:

There is no such thing as ultimate truth.


What is ‘truth’ anyways?

Truth comes from the word ‘true‘, which ultimately means “steady, firm” (think about a tree).

So truth isn’t some ultimate wisdom or knowledge about the universe which is irrefutable — truth is simply having an opinion, thought, or perspective which you stay firm on.

Or in other words:

Don’t comprise; and you are being “true” to yourself.

The goal is to be true. The goal is to stay FIRM in what you believe and affirm. However, this is another problem:

We are constantly changing and in a state of becoming, therefore, there can never be an ultimate firm “truth” (in terms of what you believe in).

Inspire and motivate yourself, and inspire and motivate others.

Why share your perspective?

I find that when I share my perspective, it benefits me in many ways:

  1. I better understand what I (currently) believe in.
  2. I derive joy from sharing my opinion and perspective (it augments my feeling of power, or increasing power).
  3. It delights me that my perspective might help empower others.

Also, I want to encourage more other people to share their own perspectives, and to self-censor themselves less.

For example, why do I admire Kanye, JAY Z, Kendrick, Steve Jobs, etc? Because they have the guts and the balls to self-express themselves, without censoring themselves, and by simply having the courage to share their own perspective/opinion.

It requires a certain level of personal risk to have an opinion and to stand by it.

What is the problem in modern life? Not enough personal risk-taking, or putting our own name on the line. Too many people want to have an opinion without putting their neck on the line. This is why I have no respect for cowards who post their opinion anonymously. A true person of courage will always associate their real name to their thoughts, perspective, and actions. Skin in the game (Nassim Taleb).

Share more of what you truly believe in!

Ideas:

  1. No more censoring yourself. Better to be insanely and brutally honest than to water down your opinion.
  2. All of your perspectives are legitimate and worthy to be shared.
  3. All perspectives are equally legitimate, but the difference is rather: How many people can you get to listen to you and follow/obey you? Or better yet– how convincing are you?
