I’m not sure how some of us got stuck living in the past. We still try following and building onto the lives our parents used to live. There’s nothing wrong with that, as long as one is happy with it. But when you complain about scarcity, about unemployment and about being broke, excuse me! Wake up!
We live in an extremely abundant world. Never in the history of mankind has ever been so much opportunity to make money (and a lot) than it is today. True, much of this abundance lies dormant in the back-corners of the Internet, of the hyper-connected universe.
As Peter Diamandis brilliantly puts it:
“Three to five billion new consumers, who have never purchased anything, never uploaded anything, and never invented and sold anything, are about to come online and provide a mega-surge to the global economy.”
That is abundance in its purest form. And while there’s so much out there, billions and trillions waiting to be made, many of my friends complain they don’t have physical job, or any job at all.
What the hell are you waiting for? If there’s none, make/invent one! Don’t cling onto the past.
You don’t have to build the next million dollar Internet company in the next three months, although you can. Start small, shoot for making a living; this is relatively easy. I will give you some ideas in the next paragraphs.
