You may find in the coming year that it will feel harder than ever to hang onto your ideals, but you must—in the end it will get you double your investment, because you are building a strong foundation that will be there when the world is in calmer times.
Before then, you know you're being true to yourself, and you cannot live with yourself any other way. The struggles that face the world in 2016 could translate to energy loss, depression, and confusion in most people, and it could easily do so for you—which is why you must keep your grounding. And your grounding is in your ideals. I would propose that the one that's closest to the core is existing in a way where you see the needs of the many, the needs of the few, and your own personal necessities in the same view.
Practice and apply this concept in everything you do this year. And while you do that, notice who cannot see past their own personal hunger, and steer clear of them.
