“[True happiness] is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.” -Helen Keller
The TDY Philosophy
“What am I going to do with my life?”
“How can I live a better life?”
Time and again, variations on these two questions have been the big question for many. It’s really a great equalizer – it strikes anyone and everyone, young and old, rich and poor, successful or starting, with no prejudice. And it doesn’t choose when, where, or how to hit you – it simply does, in your own circumstances, and once it’s there, you either have to answer it, or keep dodging it.
On the flip side, there are those who seem to be living with such passion and fervor that you can’t help but feel admiration and maybe a little envy for them. They seem to be so busy and successful (no matter how successful they are), but for all the right reasons. These are the people who have already answered the big question, and are living out their answers.
The Daily You, or just TDY, is an institute that seeks, through different channels, to guide YOU to find and live your own answer to that question. To live a truly good life: one with true higher purpose.
But purpose can be misguided. That’s why we believe it’s most important that it’s properly rooted – rooted in awareness and service. It’s about being mindful about yourself and the things and people around you, and then concretely living according to said mindfulness, proactively rather than reactively.
And awareness and service, we believe, are just two sides of the same coin of a single, taken-for-granted, word: love. True, unconditional, unrestricted love is, by nature, others-oriented – and so it captures the sense of mindfulness and the spirit of service in one. But more importantly, we believe that in loving, you find a reason. A reason to live. A purpose for living.
We are all invited, then, to live our Higher Purpose Through Love. A true, guided higher purpose that is unique and individual to each and every one of us. A purpose that we are to live everyday: Awareness becomes a lifestyle. Service becomes a lifestyle. Loving becomes a lifestyle. Purpose becomes a lifestyle.
It is all about The Daily You.
