Memo To Self Re: Motivation
Do what you can with the mindset and mental determination that gives you the feeling of that slightest internal push. This will get things done in more ways than your very limited basic, lethargic, default position logic might be telling you.
Be aware of every thought that comes to mind, if it is useful within the present then absorb and make it a tool, if it’s a distraction evaporate it with your will power and strong realization that what needs doing is what needs doing. All else is distracting, fuzzy-sludge thought.
“If we don’t do something to fix the glaring inequities in this economy, the pitchforks are going to come for us. No society can sustain this kind of rising inequality. In fact, there is no example in human history where wealth accumulated like this and the pitchforks didn’t eventually come out. You show me a highly unequal society, and I will show you a police state. Or an uprising. There are no counterexamples. None. It’s not if, it’s when.”
Good on him for recognizing the flaws in the system and trying to do something about it because he’s in the position where he can do something about it.
"Would you like to save the world from the degradation and destruction it seems destined for? Then step away from shallow mass movements and quietly go to work on your own self-awareness. If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation."
