Why is our world so violent?
"Human beings are teleological creatures. We are hard-wired to live purposively, to have direction. Without a target to shoot at, our lives are literally aimless. Without something productive to do, without positive goals and a purpose, a human being languishes. And then one of two things happens. Aimlessness begins to shut a person down in spiritual lethargy and emptiness, or the individual lashes out and turns to destructive goals just to make something happen.” - The Art of achievement. Lets create purpose driven lives baby!
"Camera pans over to a dark scene where a pivotal character gets stabbed and falls off from the frame"
This is usually how most of the great stories begin. Focus on the most important moment where the game changes.
I will start with the very unobvious. Instances you might or might not have come across before. That way we both are on the same page of how "interesting" my life gets sometimes. Sometimes the characters,sometimes I feel it's my brain which attracts certain people and situations.
Either wise, one fine morning I found myself with 5 cartons of ducks and chickens, along with 5 other packets of nuggets and other fillets with myself (thanks to my client) We had literally NO space whatsoever. And the wrong quantity was delivered. My brain went to a mini panic mode thinking about the chickens that got spoilt as every minute passed by. We tried making space in the fridge, called up the supermarket downstairs and the office nearby for one precious thing-SPACE.
We all take it for granted? Don't we? Right from the time we sleep to work to to the time we fall asleep again, we are taking up someone else's space. Do we really share our space with others? Probably not. Well something had to be done. We had no option of sending the chickens back to the supplier. My boss lady was smart enough to throw away all the old food inside the office refrigerator and made space for the lovely chickens. She saved our day. Yay!
How did this change that day? I realized that sometimes the most viable option is right in front of you and not very far away. You just need to remove that cloud of doubt and despair and look for the unobvious. You will never know what you find. Trust me!
