You probably all know about how to light a fire without a match. You rub two sticks together, and the friction generates heat, which produces the fire.

If you want to produce something of worth, if you want to influence others with your light, more often than not you have to come together with others. And often, that can produce disagreements and conflicts. The most significant people, the ones who make the most impact on the world are often the ones who polarize others and don’t shy away from conflict. If you’re doing something significant, there are bound to be others who don’t agree with what you’re doing. Don’t worry about that, and just keep pressing on.
