Opportunities for a new life are here for you, today!
Opportunities are everywhere in this new world. In the last 100 years, we’ve gone through revolutions in technology that have given us opportunities that our grandparents would have only been able to dream of. You want to be on the other side of the planet by dinner time? New jets can take you there. Every song you grew up with is only one click away. Every episode of your favorite old shows are there to watch anytime you’d like. You want to see Paris without ever leaving your living room? Virtual reality can make that happen.
If you can dream it, you can do it.
These realities can have a dark-side, though. In the ways that we’re closer than we’ve ever been before, they can make us feel lonely, too. We see our friends on social media, while we sit alone by a computer. We read about incredible places in the world, but we don’t make the moves to go see them. The choice is ours about how to deal with things, though. We don’t have to wait to make moves. We can move worlds.
The news tries to make us think that the world isn’t safe, that people have gotten meaner, and that things are spinning out of control. To this I say that it’s just not true. The world is more beautiful than it has ever been and you are less alone than you could ever know.
Don’t let others scare you into wasting your time. Live happy and be free. Make a plan. Set your goals. Spoil yourself.
Time is the greatest opportunity we have. It’s our most valuable resource.
Do something to surprise yourself that you’ve always wanted. Use your time to the fullest.
Personally, I like to read a lot. If you’re looking for some more motivation, these were all good reads:
1) The Magic of Thinking Big by Dr. David J. Schwartz. With over 6 million copies sold, it’s an excellent reminder to keep dreaming.
2) Who Moved my Cheese? by Spencer Johnson. Another international bestseller, with over 10 million copies in print, the book has a powerfully simple message about not relying on what used to work to make the future brighter.
3) Drive: The Surprising Truth about What Motivates Us by Daniel H. Pink. This one was a New York Times bestseller and it’s easy to see why. It runs on the idea that motivation comes from your deepest sense of who you are and he guides you how to keep moving.
4) The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. This book has sold 2 million copies so far and has been translated in over 30 languages. It has a lot to offer by taking the most fundamental principles of Buddhism and repacking it to fit our modern life. Forget about how this one is presented and marketed; it’s very much worth the read.
