All forms of media are alive with predictions of the future;
- World War Three
- Discrimination out of control for women and ethnic groups
- Plummeting stock markets
- Another global financial crisis
And on and on it goes. The media frenzy adding momentum to it all.
You know what…..
I’m not feeling it.
This feeling of doom and gloom.
Maybe I am ignorant, uneducated, uninformed, dispassionate to the plight of others. I don’t think so.
We all create our own realities.
Some consume everything that is fed to them. What they consume feeds their reality of how the world is.
It works the same way as how your body reacts to the food you eat in relation to the energy you use. Physical and mental balance.
The things you learn, read about and the people you mix with all shape the way you think.
Take charge of yourselves people.
The fact that we have a new president in a country that has huge diversity and power does not mean that your life is going to be all downhill from now on. One man or woman is not going to make all the difference. Bigger things are at play.
If you want to be a victim, follow the masses and keep gorging yourselves on the abundant negative information that is available, go ahead change nothing, feel the Doom.
If you want to create something positive out of this life, start fighting for it.
The biggest fight of your life is the one that goes on in your head.
Changing the way you think, your belief systems, your reality. It’s a battlefield with no rules. Challenges come at you from every direction. You need to decide to run, fight or avoid things that influence the way you think and react.
Do you want to learn the secret of feeling positive? It is so simple you would not believe it.
Take positive action and keep taking it until it becomes a habit.
Control your life. Listen to the voices in your head. If you don’t like what they are saying, change what you do. What you have done in the past is what put those thoughts in your head. Replace them with thoughts that help you become the person you would rather be.
Over the next ten years, it is highly likely the world is going to change faster than ever before in the history of mankind. We will hear about and see things we can’t even imagine right now.
With change comes opportunity.
Opportunity is there for the taking. Most of the time it passes us by because we are too focused on the distractions bombarding us through various media. We’re not looking for it. If we do happen to see a glimpse of an opportunity, we are not prepared and it's gone before we can act.
You need to keep learning useful skills, test your belief system and check your values are still current. Skills like;
- Survival, obviously, the number one skill. If you are dead nothing else matters to you personally, in this world anyway.
- Skills surrounding your legacy, your family, things you are creating, those skills are right up there near the top of your priorities.
- Leadership skills will help you leverage from others what you are creating, speed things up, get it done fast and help you keep building your life, your legacy.
- Thinking skills together with a belief system that what you think is a good thing, is possible and you can make it happen. These skills need constant nourishment and attention. You can do this by spending as much time with others on the same journey as possible.
Think way bigger than you are now because chances are you are not achieving anything like what you are capable of. Broaden your horizons.
Get comfortable with feeling uncomfortable. You will not thrive and may not survive in your comfort zone.

If you need to get away from the plague, ocean sailing skills and all that compliments those skills, like coping with seasickness would be handy to have, right?
On the wall beside my desk, I have a reminder to myself. It simply says;
“Change Fast, Stuff Happens, Deal With It”
So, I make no apologies that I’m not feeling the doom and gloom my Facebook feeds are communicating to me.
Yes, the world will no doubt change fast and I welcome that with my eyes wide open for the opportunity to help those that need what I can offer.
Some of the skills I have learnt here will help me and my legacy survive and prosper. They could help you too.
Take charge of your life.
