Stepping Stone

Big idea time…

I am of the belief, that the fact you are on this planet is a minor miracle. I believe the same of myself.

If we think in terms of probabilities, the chances of your ancestors surviving everything they had to go through, for you to be here today, are small. Include into that the evolution of mankind over millions of years AND the conditions required for life to thrive, and we’re starting to get into miracle territory.

Where is all this going you ask?

Our ancestors didn’t go through all they had to go through, for you to take it easy.

Your parents didn’t work hard, for you to take it easy.

Your great great grandparents didn’t survive wars and economic uncertainty, for you to take it easy.

We believe that everyone who came before us worked so that we could have a comfortable life.

WRONG!

They did all that so that we had a platform to launch from and live an incredible life. So that someone in their family could go and truly make a difference and change the world.

They worked hard, so that you could work harder.

So now, are you going to use this opportunity as a stepping stone to something greater?

Or are you going to use it to buy another flatscreen TV?
