There is a book which I recently finished reading on one of my favourite philosophers and writers that contains many good guiding principles in life. It has taught me that actions that we take must be rooted in reason with a means to achieve happiness. A person’s happiness is achievable through his own intellectual creativity. You can only achieve it through living with a passion and purpose.
Ayn Rand’s objectivist philosophy has taught some really good ways of living. According to Rand in her words:
“My philosophy, in essence, is the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute.”
It is an ideology for people who value individuality against collectivist statism. Statism is a system whereby the government is in control of all guidance for the people that dismisses the individual as a tool for the purpose of it’s own end or parasites to feast upon for undeserving rewards.
My objectives this year are to be as productive as I can by focusing on reading for my university work, investing my money in things that have a useful purpose and continuing my personal development.
There are also some objectives that I intend to do that are coming up this year. There is the local council elections in London, which I will be involved in as my friends are aiming to become councillors. I hope that we can make Havering a bright blue council of hope and opportunity for the locals. Also I will be volunteering again for a big sports event in Glasgow this year at the European Championships. I am looking forward to this.
Now let’s get to work.
