What to do with Wreckage

Wrecked: When A Broken World Slams into Your Comfortable Life, by Jeff Goins, shares stories from people who have been wrecked, and shares Jeff’s philosophy about how to live once you’ve been wrecked. Being wrecked is about recognizing that this world is terribly broken, that the expectations and promises of our society are empty.

But what do we do about it?

Jeff says, “We live under the misguided notion that life is supposed to be comfortable.” It’s not. It’s about living in compassion. And it’s about finding your calling to do something about it.

Here’s the thing. Calling is everywhere. Wrecked explicitly does not call for us all to run off to Africa and become missionaries. It’s important work, but it’s not everyone’s calling.  It’s about, wherever you are, acting from compassion, rather than fear, or greed, or convenience, or whatever. That’s something that is needed everywhere in this broken world.

The message of Wrecked is good for humanity. But, if you ask me, it’s most important for people like you. You’re likely here on my blog this because you are driven … you’ve got a creative voice inside you itching for more. You have the opportunity to do amazing things with this gift of discomfort. Always remember it, and use it at every opportunity.

“You were meant to change the world–in some small or big way. What you’re called to do is not yours to decide. What is your call is how you respond. Everything you do matters. So do something. Anything. Just move.
–Jeff Goins, Wrecked
