Let greed not make your wants avaricious

The United Kingdom is desperately trying to make a law what the government thinks is what people need during immigration; dealing with permanent residency; education; job permit and a host of other issues. The exercise has failed miserably because the government does not seem to listen to what stakeholders actually want.
I am staggered by the amount of business owners I meet who try and build businesses around the world to what they think people need, rather than providing what people want. The best business to be in today is clearly about providing services/products for customers, rather than trying to find customers for the services/products created without thinking about people’s needs.
What kind of business are you running? Are you providing what people want or are you trying to provide what you think people need? The two are completely different. You can’t create artificial demand and then try to sustain it as wants are unlimited.
Maturity is in delivering what you need instead of what you want. You are born with need of enormous affections and you have to give it to others as it is their need also.
Planet Earth is well-designed to provide everyone according to their needs, not to everyone’s greed. You cannot get everything you want but you will get everything that you need to survive to live. Mother Earth is wise enough to do that.
You must get what you need like love. You have to provide what others also need. This could make our planet a better place to live. You come here to live and what you need are the essentials for a decent living.
What you need is to grow without hurting the needs of others. But the avarice in us surpasses our genuine needs and we are ready to travel the whole world to get it and even ready to die getting it. This is a survival matched only by the dullness of your soul, Going to any length in getting what you want for the sake of a luxurious life is not the way nature intended you to live in the first place.
Life is not possible if the needs are not met. To be at some place you have to change what your needs are and enter into a journey of what you could be. This helps you to rise to the next level of need to live and survive because it is your foresight and understanding of life. To live for next level is a way of life whether the need is spiritual, financial, and social and services.
The great thing about providing people with what they want and building relationship with our customers over time is that we can end up providing people with what they need as well .
Be the change the way world wants to see you as a normal human being and that as a member of LEAD ME TO ME series is what we wish you to be .
