Reversing the Cycle

Fromm says that to have a satisfying life you need to invert the formula. First, you need to:

Be who you are. Know your strengths, your values, your purpose. This self-awareness will lead you to…

Do what you love. This doing will be the contribution of your unique gifts. Because you are giving yourself away, you will be rewarded, and you will…

Have what you need. Of course, there are no guarantees you will have everything you want! As Dick Leider writes in The Power of Purpose, “There are two ways to be rich. One is to have more; the other is to want less.” To reach the stage of having requires patience. While you wait, you need to define yourself by who you are, not what you have.
