When you make a decision, do you think of the short term implications or the long term?
For example, what do you wear today? Personally, I like to keep it simple. However, that could affect the impression I give off. That's why I'll put more thought into it for events or important meetings.
What about food? What you eat may not affect you today but what about tomorrow, next week or next year? What you put in your mouth today will affect you at some point and that could be good or it could be bad.
What about your mindset? What you watch, what you listen to and who you surround yourself with may not affect you today but continue to do the same and see what happens in the long run. It could be the difference between being on the street, owning a multi-million dollar company or being a monk. You get to choose.
But what about something much larger than us? The environment.
It's no surprise that climate change is happening. It's all around us. The environment is changing.
It's easy to think what we do as an individual won't make a difference but I beg you to rethink that mindset.
Leading by example is the ONLY way to promote change.
Will what you do today have instant effects on mother nature? No. But it will help the future generations. It will help your kids, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Here's the thing...
Planet Earth was here long before us and will be here long after us. If we choose not to cooperate, it will simply eradicate us and start over.
Planet Earth is playing the long game.
I recommend you take a few minutes to watch the video below to which I have no affiliation. I simply think it's a great video that needs to be shared.
