This time we live in, like never before, provides a new definition of progress.
Progress used to mean to move forward or to advance, as in making things better.
But in this fast paced run around world we live in the definition has begun to change.
Progress, for some, has come to mean that we are not moving forward or we can’t move forward without the assistance of others.
And as the definition has been changing, we as Americans, have given up our capabilities.
That is by design, of course, by those who wish to control the masses.
The masses, are merely a collection of yous and mes. They are groups of people that have believed the story that we “can’t” do or be everything we are capable of being.
Yet if you stop to pay attention and look around our capabilities as humans continues to grow.
In my short 50 years on this earth, for example, we have gone from a box with a dial on the wall as a form of communication to a mini computer that fits in our pocket and that can communicate with people around the world. That was progress.
That progress was made because people refused to believe that their capabilities were insufficient, that through hard work and perseverance progress is made.
With every advance our capabilities grow and we can continue to reach new heights.
In this new year, stretch yourself, don’t buy into the idea that in order to have progress we must give up our capabilities, our ideas, our work ethic, or our values.
Continue to feed your growing capabilities day by day…and enjoy the progress and advances you will make.
Find your path, it is waiting for you.
