A recent survey suggests that 71% of the world thinks we are in a decline. Ever hear someone say in a depressed voice “things just aren’t like they used to be,” talking about the ‘good old days.’
This statistic blows my mind because there has never been a more exciting time to be a human being; not in ancient Babylon, ancient Rome, Great Britain in their hay day, you name it, there was never a time quite as prosperous as this.
1000 years ago, being able to ‘flip a switch’ and turn on the light was only heard of in the Book of Genesis. Now, you don’t have to be God to flip the switch, and in some cases you just need to clap your hands.
500 years ago, people were just figuring out the Earth is round. Now the concept of a spherical Earth is taught in pre-school.
100 years ago, the average life expectancy was 30. Today, die before 80 and it’s considered life cut short.
In 1980 sci-fi thrillers featured people speaking to one another with screens that had cameras and microphones attached to them. Hello FaceTime, Skype, Oovoo.
We literally have the ability to lock and unlock our phones with our fingerprint people!
Enjoy life now, it is not a rehearsal.
Now of course this is all coming from a 21 year old living in a first world country. Are there still people suffering each and everyday in other places on the globe, of course. I would be delusional to think otherwise. However, with the incredible technology we have today, we can influence those who are suffering on the opposite side of the globe. Our ability to give, do good, and expand our influence in limitless.
My point of all this is simple; we can choose to worry about what other people say to us or behind our backs. We can choose to feel obligated to put up with people’s BS. OR we can choose to love the life we are living today,
Right now you can choose to never live in scarcity, fear, worry, or embarrassment.
Right now you can make the congruent decision to communicate and act in a loving fashion to everyone and everything.
Life is always happening for you, not to you. It is your job to uncover the empowering meanings behind it that move you to take positive and congruent actions. One of the best ways to start is by using daily personal development to better your self. When you grow and become better in any area of your life, the other areas of your life tend to follow the leader and grow.
What decision do you want to make for yourself? How do you want to live today that will be congruent with the life you ultimately want to live? How can you show love to who you are today while creating the life you deserve?
