Why keep a World Map?

1. Overcome Failures / Embarrassments

Whenever you fail, look at the World Map and realize how insignificant your failure is. The world is so big that your biggest embarrassments mean nothing to it.

2. Stay Humble

Try to locate yourself on the map. You are so small in comparison to the world you live in. You are not even the size of pen point you can put on the map. Stay Humble.

3. Open-Minded

Looking at the world map, makes you realize that you only know a handful of the people on this planet. There is a lot more to human behavior you don’t know. So, stop generalizing things like Men are like this, Women do this, Bosses are like that, etc.

4. Growth Mindset

Try to create a circle around the people, you are impacting with your life. You will understand that even an insignificant person in the world can impact a significant size of the world. Measure your life’s worth in the lives you touch.

5. Move on from Past

The earth doesn’t spin backward and the time doesn’t turn around they keep moving forward. No matter how bad your past was, it has passed and the only thing you can control is the present.

Call to Action: Buy/Print/Draw a world Map and Keep it near your desk.


A picture is worth a thousand words, but a picture of the world is worth a thousand life lessons. Just looking at the picture can keep you motivated, humble, open-minded, and growth-centered and help you overcome your failures, embarrassments, and past griefs.
