It would be wrong of me to spend this much time seeing parts of the world and meeting people from different areas am cultures and not have had some thoughts about it all.
My general feeling about people is that we are all generally the same. We work to make a few dollars so that we can provide for ourselves and our loved ones so that they may in turn grow up to get employment, find a life companion and have kids for whom they will provide. This way of life, just like most things, follows the bell shape curve where the majority of us are all doing a similar thing and working honestly and in harmony with each other for the cycle to continue but there will always be those who lay in the extreme ends. It is these people who are the ones who change society as they do not follow the same path but deviate and forge their own. This can be for the positive or negative and their actions are an example for the rest of us to watch. People in these extremes are often leaders but they should not be followed blindly. We instead need to analyse their differences and decide for ourselves if what they are doing is right and good. Or bad if you want to do that. The figures who are remembers in history are those who do not conform to the norm and we remember them for the great or horrific things they did.
But we are not all meant to be leaders. I don’t want to be one because I am generally lazy and leaders often have to be hard workers. So here are my tips for the average person who wants to live a happy and full life as this is what I feel I have. I love life, I love my life and I enjoy everyday.
- Be content with what you have.
- Consolidate what you have got. Pay off any loans you have as soon as possible. Do not work for the bank. If a considerable amount of your income is going to pay interest on a loan then you are working for the bank. Have an automatic payment set up to funnel money into a savings account. Unattended money will vanish.
- Have a positive mental attitude toward all areas in your life. I know that will sound odd but part of the reason I live my life so much is due to the fact that I tell myself that I love my life. I also tell myself that I am lucky and therefore I am.
- Make good/smart short, medium and long term decisions. This might sound hard and perhaps for some people it is but we have history and common seance on our side. We can also ask the advise of others.
- Live a balanced life.
If there is one thing that has been reinforced on this trip it is that the universe and man was not made after a Big Bang. A world as incredible as ours is not a product of chance.
