A strange thing has perplexed many who study the human condition, especially in the United States. The perplexity is often expressed like this:
Why do people who live in a free nation with no caste rules, unlimited opportunity and the freedom to choose the kind of work, or contribution to the nation, simply accept what is first offered and then complain about it for the rest of their earthly life? I admit to knowing all of the simple and simplistic answers to the question, such as fear. I used fear due to the fact that fear is the root of all other answers.
Award winning writer (Forrest Gump, etc.) Eric Roth, said:
“I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you are not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”
Many, if not most people, are not satisfied with their lot in life.
Are you one of the millions of Americans who trudge through life? If so, may I ask a few questions?
If you knew you couldn’t fail, what would you select as your life profession or practice? Keep in mind that just because someone else seems content doing whatever, does not mean that you would enjoy the same level of contentment.
Deep in your heart, what would you love to do to earn a living, or realize your dream, above all else?
Do you even know? Or think you do? Are you willing to throw yourself into it?
When will you start? Now? If not now, when?
I wish our educational system had a few courses on the subject of following the gleam in your own life.
Along with the “Hope” of Eric Roth, please consider this from Jesus Christ:
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10
