“Choose to be your better self – because what you will see in your future memories are being actively recorded at this very moment!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
Do you really want to look back at some point tomorrow and see what you see today?
An angry person upset with everything in the world around you, and yet unwilling to do anything about it?
A whack job who subscribes to the craziest of conspiracy theories?
Someone denying an obvious reality because you choose what you want to believe, not what actually *is*?
An individual who has abandoned the purity of the scientific principal for ridiculous information simply because you feel smug?
Are you all too eager to shout and not ready to listen? Full of bombast and screaming emotion rather than quiet understanding? Too absorbed in your own success and comfort and devoid of any soul and degree of caring for your fellow man and woman?
Is that really what you want to look back on?
History judges harshly those who embed hatred in their soul in their rush to try to make things great again.
Somewhere in the last few years, many people have lost their sense of what it means to be a human. They seem to be so focused on making their world “great again” that they have lost every element of morality in their soul.
And when you look around, it’s really not that great. The weak are punished. The poor are disparaged. Those who are different are shunned. That’s great?
People are so busy crushing the meek around them on their way to the top that they don’t yet realize that they are really in a race to the bottom.
The things you are doing right now are what you will look back in the future.
I don’t know about you, but I prefer a retrospective that is positive, hopeful, respectful, and full of both personal and business integrity.
Define yourself with kindness; embed your soul with thoughtfulness; manage your actions with goodness; live each and every day with tolerance.
Because really, you probably want future memories that show you as your better self.
