Pay What You Owe


I remember buying a chocolate at a nearby retail store, and for some reason I didn’t have the right amount of money. Since the seller was a kind person, he gave me the chocolate and asked me to pay him back later. So I left the store with the consciousness of “I am OWING”. I tell you that phrase alone got me thinking…

And as a Blogger, I decided to write something on it. Crazy me huh..

Well here is my point; most times we live our lives like we DON’T OWE anybody anything. Not that there’s anything wrong with it, I mean there’s nothing wrong about paying up bills, living independently. But inspite of all these, having an “I Owe You Mindset” is very important.

Let me explain, we wouldn’t be where we are today if we didn’t act like we owed a lot to hardwork. Our families wouldn’t be as peaceful as it is today if we didn’t think we owed a lot to their well-being.

This kind of thinking throws “selfishness” out the door and makes life challenging and very exciting.

So I left that retail shop, realising how much I owe the world. And the more I payback what I owe, the better I get.
