There are more than 7 billion people on this earth. Each and one of them have dreams. Each and one of them have goals. Either to find the next meal, find love or find the next big opportunity. We all have been given different qualities and talents. Our past shaped our natural interests and abilities. For a good part of us, we have been given a chance to realise those things. Our present decisions will mark our future.
It’s crazy to realise that most of us will not do anything with it. Some people that I know are simply living by, when they are full of talent. Some people linger on pass experiences and scars. Yes they hurt, they hurt like hell, but what is the human being without it’s ability to bounce back? The kid in a war impoverished country has less chance than us to achieve but yet, he is still putting in the effort.
What is our problem? Is our relatively high level of wealth? Is it the fact that we can “rely” on our governments? Is it the fact that we blame rich people for everything that happened?
We must realise that we are responsible for our future, not our employer and especially not the government. That is going from external to internal. External factors weigh little in our success (in North-American type of countries). Internal factors determine everything.
My question is ; What are you going to do about it?
