Opportunity is Universal

It is amazing that in this day and age with all the advancements and progress, people still feel like they aren’t getting a fair shot. It is almost as if history isn’t taught anymore.

Wait, maybe it isn’t.

Opportunity a hundred years ago was very different from today. No it isn’t because there were no computers or modern technology. It was different because people believed differently.

You see it is about belief.

The world today and the ones who want to shape it want all of us to think that there are powerful forces at large that is trying to keep us from getting a fair shot. The ever present boogie man who strives at keeping us down.

Yet if we examine this effort we will see that it is the criers of this injustice who are doing the actual deed. It is the one’s who act in our “best interest” who are actually looking out for their own.

Keeping you a slave, mentally.

We must believe that our the opportunities presented to us are our own to pursue. They are there. They just need to be seized. It is far too easy to point fingers and blame something is holding you back. That which is holding you back is your own thinking.

I watch and learn about different cultures all around the world who defy hardships every day. I find myself asking the question. What on earth would cause them to choose to live in such harsh climates? ¬†Why don’t they move out and pick somewhere easier? A nature show will only tell you so much and it is possible that is happening already. However I think there is something else to learn here.

They see every day as an opportunity to gather food and care for their families. They are willing to suffer hardship for mostly that reason. They are not pointing fingers at some invisible force holding them down.

They live is such extreme climates and barely scrape by yet they are some of the freest people on earth. Think about that.

Opportunity does not equal outcome.

The outcome is determined by you.
