Seriously, who would have thunk it? Yet it is happening. Every day, every moment, we are advancing technology, pushing the boundaries of our thinking...
It's quite cool...in 1943 Thomas Watson, Chairman of IBM said "I think there is a world market for maybe five computers." He was thinking big people...now each of us has a mini one in our pocket!!!!
In 2008, Barack Obama was elected as the first African-American President.
The future/present/future didn't/isn't going to happen by accident. It didn't happen on a whim. It happened because someone first believed it could.
I am always saying that we have everything we need to be happy. It is already inside. However, when I say this, I don't mean you should just lay down on the floor and not do anything ever again.
I read somewhere recently that sometimes you have to let go of something before you can take hold of something. Instead of adding more things to your life, perhaps to live it more and authentically, you might just need to let go of something...
Maybe you could see the possibility before you ever think it will be a reality...after all, if you don't even see the possibility that you could do something then it is unlikely ever to come to pass.
Now imagine if 3D printing remained a faint possibility, imagine if they hadn't advanced the idea of computer technology, imagine a world without email or advances in modern medicine, imagine if little Barack had told himself it was never going to happen...just imagine...
Now imagine, the thing you have been putting off the plans you haven't been making...just imagine if you just left them at this point. Nothing will happen. Exactly that...nothing.
Yet if you believe in a possible future for yourself and take small steps towards that possibility then you may just change your world.
