All around us there are things that are useful and useless. In our normal course of being we seek out uses for the useful things to enrich our life and discard the useless things that cannot help us achieve the limited goals we set.
But the truest power and wisdom comes from the examination of those things the world sees as useless. To find use for the useless transcends the boundaries of the worlds understanding and creates a disruptive force that pours limitlessly into the life of its finder.
Look around at the wealthiest most powerful people in the world. Don’t desire or crave what they have, but look at the source of their achievements. Somewhere in their journey you will see their pure curiosity to find a use for something considered useless, not from a desire of fame, fortune, or power, but from a simple curiosity and selfless passion for betterment. The fame, fortune, and power was just an inconsequential outcome to their simple intention.
Follow the history of those same people and you will likely see that fame, fortune, and power became their downfall and that their future pursuits were driven by desire to keep or grow that which they had gained. Lightning rarely strikes twice In the same place, especially when it is forced from desires.
