It’s pretty obvious the world isn’t fair—we’re bound by the actions of our peers and predecessors.

I believe the foundation of freedom is based on perception.  We can choose to see our circumstances as grips, levers, and pulleys.  Maybe we can’t activate the one we’d like, but by working with what we have, we can work our way up—access a higher frequency of movement through the fruits of our smaller efforts.  Along the way, if we keep our perception open and honest, we may stumble upon mechanisms that are far more rewarding than our original goals.

Or we can see everything as a hopeless prison—no room for improvement, no reason for effort.  No thanks.  I prefer the alternative.

  1. Absolutely agree! Thanks for this post, it’s just on time 😊 I’ve just watched the Extraction on Netflix and felt like everything is pretty pointless since there is always going to be evil and violence. But you are right, of course. Perception is key. Only sometimes it’s really hard to tune to the positive outlook. So, thanks again for sharing these thoughts! They are uplifting.

  2. I know a lot of people who think the latter, that it’s pointless to improve or try living a better life. Unfortunately they get easily jealous of those whose lives improved. I, too, am glad you prefer the alternative.

    • Yes. I have to constantly remind myself that I can’t change those people unless they don’t want to be changed. A piece of advice in passing is appropriate (for me), but if they choose not to take it, that’s their prerogative. My responsibility is keeping focused on being appreciative in my good fortune rather than disappointed in their lack of progress.
