“History repeats itself” – has been proven over and over again to be a fact.
It’s almost a Rule of Nature except it’s not Nature that creates history – it is us.
Are you a student of history or have any interest in history?
This might be reading, or watching documentaries, or fictional movies portraying historical events or people, as examples of your interest. I’m not judging you or trying to convince you to do anything by asking you this question. However, there is much to be learned about all aspects of our lives from people and events from years gone by.
In fact, choices you may be faced with making for the future that will impact your life, your family’s lives and your success in your business and career may be positively guided by similar ones others have made in the past and what their results were from the decisions they made.
Have you ever given some thought as to where you fit in history?
Is this something you even care about?
Do you know less than half the population in the United States even have a written Will? Odds are even less people have ever given one second to consider where they fit in history!
This doesn’t have to be about fame or worldwide recognition.
It’s really about impact.
What impact have you had on other people you know, or have had interactions with at some point in their lives?
Why should you or anyone care about any of this?
We, all of us, fall into a trap. We become absorbed into what we are specifically doing. It doesn’t necessarily mean we’re self-absorbed, even though for some it might. This is more about the circles we spend our time in, the things we are working on, what values we have and what beliefs we hold.
This becomes our self-made trap.
In many ways it’s like living in our own bubble.
You would think with the worldwide use of the internet this would not be the case. First – the internet is not available with the same depth and breadth everywhere in the world. Second – certain areas utilized on the internet are clearly censoring their use, thereby influencing the narrative.
Because of these two items what is actually taking place is people have become even more attached to their own bubble’s set of values and beliefs thereby making them more insular and isolated from broader exposure and thinking.
This brings us back to your place in history.
Where will you leave your mark?
Do you need to change anything about how you:
- interact with people
- work on
- volunteer in
- contribute to
- is there anything else?
