Have you ever seen a young child give up trying to walk because he fell down too many times? And how many is TOO many? A young child is determined to walk no matter what. You can go faster than crawling; you stand with more confidence; you can see further and you get out of the crib. Young children are determined! So what happens as we grow older?
Many times as children, we have a dream. But a parent, or a teacher or someone says, “It cannot be done” or “You aren’t smart enough” or something for us to put the dream away forever. Luckily some kids never grow up and refuse to listen to their elders! These are the people who have gotten us to the moon and created the electric light. They were determined. They knew that if they could IMAGINE something, that it could be done. And they did it!
Unfortunately you do not hear about many of these people because society wants you to think differently. In reality, the rockets that have gone to outer space lately were NOT created by NASA but an individual’s idea that NASA now uses. And there are people who have founded medical organizations that can help people live to be 100+. If someone can live to be 100, they can live to be 1000 or forever. You might think this is far-fetched, but why?
Years ago, we did not have the medical technology to do all that we do today. People were born and they died around the age of 30. Then a few decades later, the life span changed to the 60’s, and then the 70’s and now the 80’s and 90’s. So why not forever? The point here is that old “ideas” are now no longer the truth. But we continue to believe that we will be born and we will die because our parents did and their parents before them. Why are we living in the past rather than the NOW where medicine has progressed to the point where prosthesis look real and act real? Where many diseases no longer exist?
If you are in your 50’s or older, you will remember telephones hooked to walls and no answering machines. Today with the touch of a button, you are in contact with the entire world! And then 100 years ago, most people still didn’t own their own vehicles. Now families have 3 or 4 or more! And they can go over 100 miles per hour. There are jets and rockets and we have been on the moon!
Myself, I remember when a computer was just a thought. And then they took up a whole building. Next came the PC (personal computer). Now we all have phones that connect to the internet. And why? All because someone refused to give up!
So if you have an idea or just want a better life: don’t give up! Change your habits, change your beliefs to ones that are pertinent today. Every day IS a new day and every moment is a new moment. Create a clean slate with every breath you take and start creating your new life! Don’t merely believe something because someone tells you. Question everything and make up your own mind.
