The beginning of all things starts with " you". Though " you" are indeed important, it is never "what you want" matters, but rather who you are or what you are.
In order to accelerate one' s potential, one Must first be aware of it's own existence. Be aware of intangible existence, and have a logical mind to analyze surroundings to create the most balanced and successful outcome.
All existences shall never be judged nor criticize by material, but rather to be felt by heart. Once one has learned how to live by its true self, feeling all intangible existence and use its logical mind to create balance of the universe, one has already fulfilled it's life purpose and reach its full potentials.
